Parvus Displays DuraNET 40-10, Rugged 10 Gigabit / 1 Gigabit Multilayer Ethernet Router, Switch and Security Appliance

DuraNET 40-10 Router / Switch Leverages High-Performance 3U VPX Architecture for Tactical IP Networking Applications Onboard Aircraft / Vehicles

SALT LAKE CITY, UT and TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - Jul 10, 2012) - Eurotech subsidiary Parvus announces the DuraNET 40-10, a rugged, high-performance 10 Gigabit / 1 Gigabit Multilayer Ethernet router, switch and security appliance optimized for tactical edge IP LAN and WAN networking deployments in military / aerospace / civil applications. Parvus will be displaying the DuraNET 40-10 at booth #1119 of the AFCEA TechNet Land Forces South 2012 held in the Tampa Convention Center.

Integrating up to 20 ports of fully managed routing, switching, and security services in a single hardened subsystem, this robust networking solution is primed for Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) sensitive situational awareness tech refreshes onboard aircraft, ground vehicles and maritime platforms. For maximum reliability and 2-level maintenance (2LM) field serviceability, the DuraNET 40-10 features a high-performance 3U VPX blade architecture, including a 3U VPX REDI secure router/switch card and MIL-STD-704/1275 compliant power supply line replaceable modules (LRM), as well as a spare 3U VPX payload slot to support customized system configurations (i.e. integrated Single Board Computer).

Designed to meet harsh MIL-STD-461F EMI/EMC and MIL-STD-810G thermal (-40 to +71C), shock, vibe, altitude, and ingress conditions, the unit features a passively cooled 1/2 ATR VPX chassis fitted with MIL-DTL-38999 connectors for up to 20 ports of copper Gigabit Ethernet connectivity or optional combinations of copper GigE together with optical Gigabit and/or 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for uplinks/cascade ports.
