Ethernet Switch 1G/10G

Overview

Comcores Ethernet Switch 1G/10G IP core is a highly configurable and size optimized implementation of a non-blocking crossbar switch that allows continuous transfers between up to four (4) 10 Gbps Ethernet XGMII ports and sixteen (16) 1 Gbps GMII interfaces. The switch supports MAC learning, VLAN 802.1Q, and multicast.

It implements store-and-forward switching approach in order to fulfill Ethernet standard policy regarding frame integrity checking. Each port provides GMII or XGMII native interface for Ethernet PHY devices. The number of ports is configurable at compile time.

WHITEPAPER 5G is now in full deployment with numerous services available across the globe, especially for time-sensitive applications. 5G provides a range of improvements over existing 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) mobile networks with regard to capacity, speed and latency. It also provides better security. Nevertheless, security risks still remain and these need to be addressed quickly to ensure that 5G can address all of the target applications that drove original specifications. One of the...

MACsec for Deterministic Ethernet applications

WHITEPAPER MACsec provides authentication by ensuring that only known nodes are allowed to communicate on the LAN. It provides confidentiality through encryption of the data so only end-points with the correct encryption key can see the contents. Integrity is provided through mechanisms that can detect any interference with data in motion. MACsec operates at the data link layer acting as a client of the Ethernet Media Access Control. While the ability of MACsec to scale to high speeds is...

Daniel Dik Sep 14 2022 5G provides a range of improvements compared to existing 4G LTE mobile networks in regards to capacity, speed, latency and security. One of the main improvements is in the 5G RAN; it is based on a virtualized architecture where functions can be centralized close to the 5G core for economy or distributed as close to the edge as possible for lower latency performance. The functional split options for the baseband station processing chain results in a separation between...
