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 rugged, low-cost IP67 Ethernet switch for homeland defense 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 user applications that may not require compliance to military standards, Parvus officials say.
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.
