Red Lion Ethernet Switch

ET-8xG-MIL Industrial Ethernet Switch

Military-Rated Gigabit Industrial Connectivity

These high-performance Red Lion Ethernet Switches offer an ideal Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) military solution for battlefield communications, combat vehicles, and avionics shipboard as well as other industrial applications that require rugged reliability in extreme environments.

Market Applications

Military Strength

With military equipment subject to harsh climates, varying temperatures, shock, and vibration, defense requirements are mission-critical. The equipment has to be built to withstand extreme stresses without sacrificing performance. Sixnet’s IP67 Ethernet switches are designed to reliably provide high-performance connectivity for the harshest defense applications. Military rated to support extreme defense conditions, our products link in-vehicle communication systems to support a host of military applications on the land, in the air and on the sea. These include land vehicles, ground support facilities, missile delivery systems, bombers, aircraft, UAVs, and naval vessels.
