Ethernet TSN Advanced Switch 10M/100M/1G/10G/25G - Manticore

Overview

Comcores Manticore 10M/100M/1G/10G/25G IP is an advanced Ethernet Switch with an extensive set of QoS features and statistics. It provides support for key TSN features including IEEE 802.1Qbu and 802.3br Frame preemption, 802.1Qbv Time aware shaping, 802.1Qav Credit based shaping, 802.1Qci Per-Stream Filtering and Policing, and 802.1CB Frame replication and elimination for reliability. This enables the use of the IP in high speed time-critical applications.

The Ethernet TSN Switch supports up to 8 queues, classification, VLAN 802.1Q, multicast and broadcast as well as IEEE 1588 transparent clock. Each port provides a native interface for Ethernet PHY devices. IEEE 802.1 Protocol Implementation Conformance Statement is available, specifying exact feature-set.

    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...
