The GV8R is an 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Router designed for use on ground vehicles where size, weight, and power are all of the highest priority. With dimensions of just 11” x 6” x 3”, and weighing only 4.5 lbs, the GV8R is very compact for a switch requiring individual connectors. On average, the switch consumes only 16 watts at 28 VDC with all 8 ports active at Gigabit speeds. The GV8R has undergone extensive qualification testing for use in ground vehicles, including Victory Specification 1.6.2.
The GV8R also allows owners of GV8M switches a plug and play upgrade from Switch to Router.
