Curtiss-Wright's VPX6-684 FireBlade provides Systems Integrators with a fast, secure and unified approach to interconnect subsystems, chassis, cards, and compute nodes within any given platform using 1 or 10 Gigabit Ethernet links. Providing up to 24 wirespeed 10/100/1000 Mbps interfaces and up to four 10 Gbps interfaces in a single 6U VPX slot, the VPX6-684 Ethernet Switch is ideal for architecting system-wide Intra-Platform Networks (IPNs). The VPX6-684 VPX Gigabit Ethernet Switch comes with a powerful set of management interfaces and complete Layer 2/3 software with dual IPv4/v6 support for building secure, high performance networks.

The VPX6-684 FireBlade can also be configured as a Unified Threat Management (UTM) router that is capable of strong perimeter defense through an ICSA certified firewall.

Managed versions of the VPX6-684 VPX Gigabit Ethernet Router provide extensive pre-integrated software that runs on its processor. Major software components include the full suite of Layer 2/3 software protocols required for intelligent switching and routing of IP packets. Curtiss-Wright also provides extra software features such as declassification, and Built-in Tests (BIT).

For building networks in the lab environment, Curtiss-Wright provides a VPX6-684 FireBlade RTM that plugs into the backside of the VME64x backplane and provides up to 24-ports of RJ45 connectors, one 10/100 deug port, two EIA-232 serial interfaces and 4-ports of 10 GbE.
