Project Example – Industrial Ethernet Switch


Leading customer in Transportation engineering, supplying the connection technology for transmitting data, signals, and power in railway applications.

AimValley Software Project Reference

Customer Objectives

  • Development of a portfolio of Industrial Ethernet Switches for Transportation (Railway) and Automation (Machinery & Robotics).
  • Compact design for harsh environment; installation where space is restricted and fanless design (extended industrial temperature range) is required.
  • 120 W Power over Ethernet (PoE) from the internal power supply.

AimValley Solution

  • Complete design and development from idea to product. 
  • Broadcom-based switch development.
  • Future proof architecture: 68 hardware variants based on 3 base designs.
  • Development fully based on AimValley Software IP (AimOS-Ethernet) – carrier-grade, field proven software stack.
  • Managed the challenging thermal aspects based on our broad thermal experience and “fanless designs”.

Results and Added Value


Re-usability of IP (AimOS-Ethernet) and proven developed switch experience reduced time-to-market and development costs with 35%.


A fully flexible product-line developed on a turn-key basis, including manufacturing.


Architecture and development in close collaboration with the customer.


Modular design for harsh environments (extended temperature range in combination with fanless design).
