OSLO, Norway, Nov. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- OnTime Networks, a global leader for rugged, time synchronized Ethernet solutions for the aerospace and defense industry, announced today that it received a contract from a Norwegian Defense contractor to provide military Cloudberry OEMbedded CM-4018F10 OEM Gigabit Ethernet switch modules for use in remote weapon system (RWS). The CM-4018F8 Gigabit Ethernet switch module product falls under the OEMbedded product line, which was launched early 2017, to provide OEM embedded solutions. Under the contract, shipments are scheduled to begin in early 2018. The selection of the CM-4018F10 was influenced by OnTime Networks expertise for network time synchronization in accordance to the IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) standard.
The CM-4018F10 Gigabit Ethernet switch modules, will provide IEEE 1588 PTP time synchronization support and going to be embedded by the equipment manufacturers, in a remote weapon system (RWS).
Øyvind Holmeide, President and CEO of OnTime Networks stated, "Our expertise in the field of Ethernet network products enabled our customer to fast track their development by relying on OnTime Networks' expertise and engineering capacity to bring their products to realization more quickly. The CM-4018 Gigabit Ethernet switch module is a custom design which provides a complete, ready-to-use integrated solution." He continued, "OnTime Networks' proven track-record of high quality building blocks can help customers to fast-track their product development and bring them to market with predictable cost and solid quality."
Pål-Jørgen Kyllesø, CTO of OnTime Networks further commented "The CM-4018F8 Gigabit Ethernet switch module provides the right combination of solid common-off-the-shelve products, hardware and software, coupled with OnTime Networks' design expertise, in order to accelerate embedded product development."

About OnTime Networks
The CM-4018F10 series OEM switch/power board is a rugged managed Ethernet switch family designed to operate reliably in the harsh climatically and noisy electrical demanding environments of military applications; e.g. high altitude, extreme shock, vibration, extended temperatures, humidity, dust & water exposure, noisy EMI and dirty power. The switch is available in the following main configurations; Grand master*, transparent clock/slave clock switch, Standard NTP or Standard Ethernet switch. The switch could be tailored with connector board/boards for additional copper and fiber ports including connectors. Different power options on the board is available (military, aerospace, industrial or external power input). *If GPS is needed this must be mounted on the connector board.
