Published: 22 February 2013 - Rachael Morling
Parvus Corporation, a subsidiary of Eurotech, has announced that the DuraNET3000 (a ruggedized version of Cisco Systems’ IE-3000 industrial Ethernet switch) has successfully completed military standard qualification testing to extreme MIL-STD-810G environmental conditions, MIL-STD-461F electromagnetic interference/compatibility (EMI/EMC), and MIL-STD-1275/704 power requirements. As a result, it is now a COTS solution proven suitable for deployment in military and aerospace applications.
The device can operate in harsh conditions onboard un-manned aircraft, ground vehicles and maritime platforms virtually anywhere LAN or WAN connectivity may be required. It also has mechanical enhancements to support deployment of data, video, and voice services in extreme temperatures, shock, vibration, humidity, as well as where it may be exposed to dust, water, and EMI/EMC environments.
