The HiCAP E24c is a Layer 2+,  24-port, plug-and-play, managed Ethernet switch.  Environmentally hardened, this Line Replaceable Unit connects to computers, sensors, radios, etc., located within a vehicle platform creating a highly effective mobile network.

HiCAP E24c is ideally suited for military vehicle networking applications as it complies with MIL-STD-1275E and VICTORY framework.

Why a managed Ethernet Switch vs an unmanaged Ethernet Switch?

 An unmanaged Ethernet switch is simply a fixed “plug and play” device that enables communication among Ethernet devices. No changes to the configuration are possible.

On the other hand, a managed Ethernet switch offers multiple benefits such as:
• The ability to configure, manage, and monitor LANs
• Data path or network control
• Access control
• SNMP queries to determine network or specific device health
• The ability to monitor performance in order to remotely detect network problems
• QoS for network traffic prioritization to improve network performance
• Alternate path configuration to enable routing around a connection for cable failure

If your network performance and up time is important then a managed switch is the way to go.
