Rugged IPv6 GigE switch subsystem to be displayed at MILCOM 2009

16th October 2009 - 01:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Parvus announces the availability of its DuraNET 1268 Gigabit Ethernet switch, an ideal Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) IP networking solution to enhance situational awareness in Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP)-constrained aircraft, tactical ground vehicles and maritime assets.

The DuraNET 1268 is a compact, rugged Layer 2+ Gigabit Ethernet switch subsystem equipped with ten triple-speed 10/100/1000Mbps ports for connecting IPv4 and IPv6 compatible computing devices onboard demanding network-centric (un)manned vehicle and aircraft platforms. Designed for very demanding MIL-STD-810F environmental and MIL-STD-1275/704/461 vehicle power and EMI conditions, the unit features all industrial temperature grade components, near cable-less design, a fully submersible chassis and no moving parts for maximum reliability.

The unit features 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. 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, such as Parvus’ DuraMAR®, to expand onboard Ethernet port density.

Key features:
–  10x Gigabit Ethernet LAN Ports
–  RS-232 Console w/ Command Line Interface (CLI) or Ethernet Web GUI
–  Conduction-Cooled, Aluminum Chassis with MIL-C-38999 Connectors
–  Small Form Factor: < 5 lbs Weight, < 4″ Height
–  MIL-STD-1275D/ MIL-STD-704E Vehicle Power Supply with Voltage/Surge
–  Designed to MIL-STD-810F (Shock, Vibration, Temp, Humidity, Altitude,
–  Designed to MIL-STD-461E (Radiated & Conducted Emissions and
–  Data Zeorization Support for Secure Data
–  802.1Q Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) Trunking
–  802.1P Class of Service (CoS) / Quality of Service (Qos) Traffic
–  802.1d/w Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol

Parvus has begun shipping pre-production DuraNET 1268 units to select customers who have specified this GigE switch into several platform modernization and transformational warfare programs. General production availability is scheduled for Q1 2010. Full MIL-STD qualification testing has begun and is expected to be completed by early Q1 2010. Parvus continues development on advanced software protocol features, which are scheduled for full support during the same time period.
