      With flight test data acquisition and avionic bus data demands increasing every year, a new breed of network switches and recorders are needed to handle the new extreme data load to aggregate and record on solid-state media. Flight test instrumentation switches and recorders must perform in harsh environments with ultra-high levels of reliability. They must also facilitate fast and efficient movement and storage of data. Switches also require many features such as data aggregation, port-mirroring, and QoS (Quality-of-Service) support while recorder features such as port truncation, and support for PCAP, DARv3 & CH10 recording formats are important. This paper will discuss these needs and outline some use cases for new 10 GbE network switches and recorders.
