Product Overview

COMMANDO Soldier C3000 Series Network Modules, Hot Pluggable Fan Module can be fitted in COMMANDO product slots which can accommodate, combination of management modules and network interface modules increases capacity of COMMANDO Soldier C3000 Series Switches. It increases total port density along with flexibility of spare fan. With stacking slots can increase bandwidth with high port density. The slot usage provides modularity and flexibility as per requirement.

The network modules like SFP transceiver module are for transmission at 850nm/1310nm/1550nm over Single Mode/Multi-Mode fiber. It supports IEEE Ethernet standards which make it ideally suited for data communications. It supports great distance like 100m/ 300m/ 550m/ 100m/ 10km/ 20km/ 40km/ 80km/ 120km respectively depending on models. It offers customers a wide variety of Gigabit Ethernet connectivity options up to 40Gbps for data center, enterprise wiring closet, and service provider transport applications. It can be used as uplinks for 1, 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP, SFP+, QSFP+) Fiber Network Module as well as 1G/10G Copper Network Modules for uplinks, delivering robust performance and Cloud networking needs of growing businesses, data centers and high-end campus networks.

Hot Pluggable Fan Module is Temperature Control smart fan which control circuitry varies the fan speed to increases or decreases the airflow needed to keep the system operating in a desired temperature by adjusting fan speeds to optimize cooling. These Energy Efficient switches allows optimizes air circulation to provide more effective cooling throughout rack systems in data centers where the switches are used when compared to side-to-side airflow. The switches also feature built-in smart fans with internal heat sensors monitor and detect temperature changes and react accordingly by utilizing different fan speeds for different temperatures. At lower temperatures, the fans will run slower, reducing the switch’s power consumption and noise.

It comes in standard size which fixed easily in slots, compact casing, dust proof, robust to deliver hassle free performance of mission-critical devices. It expands network capabilities with Plug and Play with no configuration required.

Features and Benefits

Easy to Use

Intelligently adjusts as per COMMANDO modular switches with optimal performance. Easy installation, Plug-and-play installation with no configuration required. Auto detection of network models with available capabilities.

Perfect for Noise-Sensitive Environments

It comes with hot pluggable smart fans that monitor and detect temperature changes, adjusting the fan speed for maximum efficiency. At lower temperatures, the fans run at a lower speed, reducing both the power consumption and noise output of the switch along with Small form-factor, for silent operation. Perfect for noise sensitive environments. Fan based Switches have Temperature- and load-based fan-speed up to 10000 rpm control combines accurate monitoring with minimized system acoustic noise.

Cost Efficient

It saves equipment cost and make this device future proof. It also allows network devices from the restrictions form fixed hardware and eliminates the need for dedicated hardware inconvenient places and cuts down the time required for deployment.

High Speed Connectivity

It provides Gigabit Ethernet with speed up to 40Gbps and over 120km of cable lengths. It is designed to be deployed in situations where high bandwidth is demanded.

Dust proof Enclosure  

It has dust proof enclosure protects the against harsh outdoor conditions with no Ingress of dust. It can withstand harsh environments, robust to deliver hassle free power.

Green Technology

Intelligent FAN adjustment and real-time power consumption monitoring technology are provided for the cost of maintenance redundancy and help to build a green and energy saving data center. It also complies with RoHS, prohibiting the use of certain hazardous materials. Besides that, most of the packaging material can be recycled and reused.
