JumboSwitch® Industrial Gigabit Ethernet Modular Switch
Because of its sophisticated real time technology and advanced Ethernet/IP, integrated voice solutions and TDM-over-IP capabilities, the JumboSwitch® Industrial Gigabit Ethernet Modular Switch is particularly well-suited for Industrial Automation, SCADA and Process Control networks.

It seamlessly integrates Ethernet, Voice & Data and offers backward compatibility with legacy devices and forward compatibility with developing Ethernet standards, and Industrial Standards such as IEC61850-3, IEEE1613 for the power industry; and NEMA TS-2 for the transportation industry.

  • Real Time Ethernet (10/100/1000)

  • Teleprotection


  • Serial (RS-232/422/485)

  • Integrated PBX

  • T1/E1 over Ethernet

  • Ethernet over PDH (T1/E1, T3/E3, etc.)

  • 600 ohm Analog

  • G.703/64k

  • Dry Contact

The JumboSwitch is a fully managed Layer 2 Switch that is available in 4 different chassis options. It offers all popular features and capabilities of standard Industrial Ethernet Switches, but differs in that it also functions as a redundant Gigabit Ethernet fiber optic backbone and access switch (often called Multi-Service Access Platform or IP Mux in the telecommunications market).

Through its network management system, TCView™, the JumboSwitch offers several important administrative and maintenance features typically not available on traditional Industrial Switches: These features include:

  • Remote Software/Firmware download capability

  • Extensive Asset Management including ongoing collection of part/serial numbers and version numbers/upgrade dates for precise inventory management

  • Remote Monitoring for “live” operating temperatures/power consumption of each interface card

With the fast convergence of data, voice and video, TDM systems are no longer capable of handling the broadband needs of today’s communication networks. As a result, premier next generation Industrial Switches like the JumboSwitch, with IP-backbone capabilities that include scalability, flexibility and connectivity, are replacing aging and less IP-friendly SONET/SDH systems.

Specializing in Fiber Optic Communications networks, TC Communications, Inc. designs and manufactures all types of Industrial Grade Modular Ethernet Switches, Self-Healing Ring Ethernet Switches, Media Converters, Modems, Multiplexers, Telephone/Data Multiplexers and Telephone Extenders.
