Part Number: TE-2004

Enhanced Ethernet Switch H-MTD MACsec


Product Description

The EES MACsec H-MTD from Technica Engineering is an Automotive Ethernet switch with strong AVB/TSN capabilities that allows the users to connect up to 8x gigabit Automotive Ethernet ports and 2x up to 10Gb ports available through SFP+ connectors.

The specialty of this variant (TE-2004) is the support of the MACsec technology, which is enabled by the use of specific PHYs. Additionally, it supports the MKA (MACsec Key Agreement) implementation of Technica Engineering.

The Enhanced Ethernet Switch H-MTD MACsec can establish virtual point-to-point connections, using single-tagged VLANs (802.1q) and double-tagged VLANs (802.1q-in-q), thus enabling filter and control over data streams. Each port provides 8-levels of Quality of Services (QoS) classes and advanced traffic filtering capabilities with ingress and egress rules, which ensures the prioritization, resource reservation, and control mechanisms over the data received.

Through an internal configuration website, the user can easily configure the device for their use cases, abstracting the complex underlying switch hardware. This includes MACsec-related features, VLANs, port mirroring, forwarding or filtering, deep inspection through TCAM rules, port segmentation, and many other features offered by Layer 2 switches.

The EES H-MTD MACsec provides a reliable gPTP/802.1AS automotive profile stack for time synchronization that allows strong customization possibilities to adapt to any customer use case. Our product is also capable of Audio Video Bridging (AVB) functions with the possibility to statically configure stream reservation and shaping features (802.1Qav).

The Enhanced Ethernet Switch is also prepared for additional TSN functionalities support: 802.1Qav, Qci, Qbv, and Qbu. Customer-specific use cases can be supported if needed. Contact the Technica Engineering sales team for additional information.

The product also provides wake-up and sleep features. For a detailed technical description, please check the User Manual of the Enhanced Ethernet Switch H-MTD MACsec.
