Today’s modern flight test systems are based to a large extent on Ethernet technologies. The never ending demand for increased bandwidth and speed also rises the need for clever packet filtering solutions on the Ethernet switches. The challenge is to avoid network bottlenecks and to ensure that Ethernet end nodes are not overwhelmed with data not meant for the given node. This paper describes the different packet filtering methods and how these techniques can be optimized for Flight Test Instrumentation (FTI) use.
