MilSource Announces Upgrades to Techaya MIL STD Switches

Industry’s most compact Ethernet switches now support precision timing, port protection/failover, service policing and more

MilSource, the exclusive U.S.-based distributor for Techaya’s military-grade and rugged Ethernet solutions, today announced software upgrades to its line of board-level, compact and ultra-compact rugged and MIL STD and managed Ethernet switches. The software delivers an enhanced feature set to support precision timing protocol (PTP) per IEEE 1588 V2, enhanced QoS, port control, Layer 2 features.

The Techaya products included in this upgrade include:

  • MILTECH919
  • MILTECH904
  • MILTECH918
  • MILTECH908
  • MILTECH912
  • MILTECH948
  • MILTECH914
  • MILTECH610 PoE
  • MILTECH910 PoE

To continue to support modern warfare requirements for GPS synchronization, these products will now support PTP passthrough (per IEEE 1588 V2), which enables the switch to pass PTP packets through the switch as normal multicast traffic (forward mode) and facilitates synchronization of all switch ports with the grand master clock (end-to-end transparent mode). Added line protection features include support for 1+1, 1:1 and 1:N switching redundancy. Administrators can choose whether to set failover schemes
where failover lines remain idle until needed, or only used as backup, or to transmit low-priority traffic under normal network conditions.

New L2 switching features include: VLAN translation and E-Line, E-LAN and E-TREE to enhance multipoint connectivity. For heightened QoS, the products now support service policing, H-QoS scheduling and per ASP and EVC queuing and scheduling.

Existing MilSource customers holding any of these products will be entitled to a free software upgrade by emailing info@milsource.us.
