NA226400 Hybrid Networking Application Switch

Silicom Hybrid Networking Application Switch combines Intel Network switching in a standard rack mount server chassis.

It includes Main Switching Board, built around the Intel® Alta chip set with up to 44 SFP I/Os.
The switch is based on Intel® FM6000 family placed on the Main Switching Board, while the Host interface is implemented as PCIe device, based on the Intel® Fortville chip set located on the PCIe.

Silicom Networking Application Switch brings highest industry standard server grade reliability, while enabling high versatility with configurable I/O port options.
