The GS12 is a standalone, fully managed Layer 2/3 Gigabit Ethernet Switch combining a high port density of twelve 10/100/1000BaseT Ethernet ports with support for IPv6 switching and routing in a small, lightweight enclosure. The GS12 supports the latest generation of IPv6 switching and routing, allowing it to meet the most challenging requirement for next generation DoD networks. IPv6 provides improved network security and reliability, while support for more network addresses allowing for a greater number of interconnected devices. Additional management and configuration features include quality of service (QoS) prioritization, VLANS, LAG, SNMP, RSTP, VRRP, IGMP and traffic policing providing customers the flexibility to meet their unique networking requirements.
Its combination of features allows the GS12 to be deployed in a wide array of applications in tanks, submarines, helicopters, and unmanned vehicles that need the ability to interconnect a large number of nodes and it rises to the challenge of fitting the required high performance functionality into a small space.
