Ruggedized switch based on Cisco ESS 2020

VoyagerSW24 ruggedizes Cisco’s ESS 2020 switch while adding additonal power features to deliver a highly capable, industry standard product.


VoyagerSW24 increases the user port density on the Voyager system while maintaining the same small size and weight of a standard Voyager module. VoyagerSW24 ruggedizes the Cisco ESS 2020 switch while adding additional power features to deliver a highly capable, industry standard product. The module’s feature set includes 22 Fast Ethernet switch ports, 2 Gigabit uplink ports, and support for 8 IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports.
