Rugged Ethernet switch for cost-sensitive homeland security applications introduced by Parvus



SALT LAKE CITY, 16 Dec. 2011. Parvus Corp. in Salt Lake City is introducing the DuraNET 10-10 low-cost IP67 rugged Ethernet switch for homeland security applications such as border security, disaster recovery, first-responder vehicles, drug enforcement, and other civilian mobile, tactical or outdoor applications that must resist the effects of extreme temperatures, shock, vibration, dust, and rain.

The DuraNET 10-10 has a dust- and water-proof design with IP67 environmental protection aimed at cost-sensitive commercial applications that may not require compliance to military standards, Parvus officials say.

As an unmanaged Ethernet switch, the DuraNET 10-10 provides local area network (LAN) connectivity to IP-enabled equipment, such as onboard computers, cameras, sensors, monitoring devices, and command-and-control gear for situation awareness and information sharing.

The rugged Internet switch operates in temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius, and provides five 10/100 plug-and-play Ethernet ports over rugged field-deployable RJ-45 or M12 connectors in a sealed and fanless metal chassis. The PC/104 Ethernet switch and vehicle-grade power supply can be placed in hazardous locations and potentially explosive atmospheres.

The device has five 10/100-megabit-per-second Ethernet transceiver ports and support for auto-MDI-MDIX network installation. Any transceiver port can serve as an uplink. Support for auto-crossover, auto-polarity, auto-negotiation, and bridge loop prevention are integrated. A non-blocking switching fabric provides data transmission at wire speed.
