Addressing the concerns of its ITS customers, EtherWAN has developed a shallower managed 10GB switch that fits better in the narrow traffic cabinets that are typical at intersections around the world.


“Our competitors are more focused on the IT market, but we wanted to give our ITS customers a switch that works for their needs,” said Jim Toepper, director of products and marketing for EtherWAN.

The EX77900 is only 430mm wide and 44.2mm high and has no moving parts since its operating temperature has been rated up to 75 degrees Celsius, making heating fans irrelevant. It includes up to 24 gigabit RJ45 ports that connect various local sensors to the central switch and four 10G fibre ports that then connect intersections to traffic management centres (TMCs). The additional bandwidth is important, said Toepper, due to the increasing bandwidth requirements of ITS solutions.
