SALT LAKE CITY, 18 Oct. 2009. Oct. 15, 2009 Parvus Corp. in Salt Lake City is introducing the DuraNET 1268 Gigabit Ethernet switch for military combat vehicles, aircraft, ships, and submarines.

The commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) rugged IP networking switch is to enhance situational awareness in size, weight, and power (SWaP)-constrained harsh-environment applications.

The Layer 2+ Gigabit Ethernet switch has 10 triple-speed 10-, 100-, and 1,000-megabit-per-second ports for connecting IPv4- and IPv6-compatible computing devices aboard network-centric manned aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles, unmanned ground vehicles, and other military platforms.

Designed for demanding MIL-STD-810F environmental and MIL-STD-1275/704/461 vehicle power and EMI conditions, the unit has all industrial temperature grade components, near cable-less design, a submersible chassis, and no moving parts.

This GigE switch can operate as a standalone network switch for intra-vehicle device communication or as a companion device for Layer 3 mobile routers to expand onboard Ethernet port density.

The unit has an onboard microprocessor for local/remote control and monitoring, as well as support for Quality of Service (QoS) traffic prioritization, virtual local-area network (VLAN) trunking, and rapid spanning tree protocol (RSTP) redundancy.

To enhance security and system management, the unit integrates recoverable data zeroization capabilities for declassifying switch data, along with RS-232 command line interface (CLI) and Ethernet management ports.
