The standard White Rabbit Switch is not suited as is for use in KM3NeT due to its form-factor and reliabilty.
A standard WR Switch consists of a small size Switch Core Board (SCB), which houses all switch intelligence, plugged onto a "simple" miniBackplane with 18 SFP ports. Backplane_GlenAir is a miniBackplane in a small form factor with 2 SFP ports and 16 high-reliability GlenAir tranceiver ports. Plugging a standard SCB with standard gateware and software creates a standard 18 port switch.
