Storage Solutions for Networking and Communication

Today's modern life can't be imagined without a wide and stable network for data access, distribution, and storage. Exabytes of data travel daily through the internet, zettabytes are already stored. Millions of routers and bridges are spread out over the globe bringing internet access to even the most remote location. 5G technology requires a much higher number of small form factor edge devices to reach out to the end users and connected devices. Those networking and communication systems need to operate 24/7 and sometimes under extreme environmental conditions including poor power supply stability. Since many edge devices are positioned in high and prominent locations that are difficult to maintain, the service interval must be extended.


  • Reliability: Storage solutions for Networking and Communication systems must provide reliable operation even in the most extreme conditions: wide temperature changes, sudden power interruptions, and environmental influence.

  • Data integrity: Boot devices may be inactive for months and need to bring back the system after an unexpected power loss quickly and reliably. The storage data rate must remain high with fully utilized capacity.

  • Customized for Networks and Communication: Small form factors with rather low densities and high endurance ask for specialized solutions while keeping the total cost of ownership low.

  • Longevity: Legacy interfaces still need to be supported, and qualification requirements of new products are among the most demanding in the storage industry.

Swissbit Solution

  • Varied products: Swissbit offers a range of products for networks and communication applications, including legacy items like Compact Flash cards and USB modules, as well as the most recent PCIe 4 / NVMe 1.4 SSDs in m.2 and U.2 formats. We also provide small form factor solutions like PCIe BGA and e.MMC, all designed to operate between -40°C and +85°C.

  • High endurance: Swissbit is offering SSD solutions with high endurance by using pSLC technology or high overprovisioning to meet the requirements for a high write data rate and long service life.

  • Superior quality: Swissbit ensures the highest quality in its products through hardware and firmware enhancements, achieving the lowest DPPM rates to prevent system failures due to storage issues. Each product undergoes rigorous temperature testing to eliminate early failures.

  • Rigorous testing: Swissbit products undergo comprehensive testing, including temperature cycling, high-temperature operation, environmental and shock/vibration assessments, firmware checks, and power failure resilience, ensuring long-lasting quality before mass production.
