Simena, LLC. produced a line of network TAPS, emulators and security high-traffic switches. The 24 port SFP – 1U rack mount chassis also contained redundant AC input cords and power supplies with dual blowers. The rear rack mount extension brackets easily accommodated 24″ to 30″ racks with varying RETMA rail configurations. The unit was based on a Fulcrum Microsystem reference design board. We provided Fulcrum with mechanical design constraints providing exact placement of connectors and LEDs of their PC board and collaborated with Fulcrum’s board design house. Simena had different power and installation requirements necessitating a new chassis be designed and manufactured.
Simena has since been acquired by Netscout System, Inc.
