Parvus' DuraNET 3825 Ruggedized Cisco Integrated Router/Switch Subsystem for Military Apps

SOFTWARE HARDWARE: Parvus Corp. announced the DuraNET® 3825, a ruggedized version of the 3825 Series Integrated Services Router (ISR) from Cisco Systems. Featuring mechanical packaging enhancements designed to suit shipboard / military shock and EMI environments, the DuraNET 3825 provides a robust Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) solution that extends the application use of industry-leading Cisco hardware.

Designed to meet MIL-S-901D Grade B shock levels and MIL-STD-461 radiated emissions requirements, the DuraNET 3825 comes in a rugged rack-mountable 2U chassis fitted with circular MIL-DTL-38999 connectors. The unit brings out up to nineteen (19) Ethernet and ten (10) serial ports, including dual Gigabit Ethernet WAN uplink ports, a Gigabit Ethernet Switch port, sixteen 10/100 Ethernet switch ports, eight Asynchronous / Synchronous RS-232  ports,  console and auxiliary serial ports.

The DuraNET 3825 combines the powerful features available in Cisco IOS® software, Catalyst® Layer 2 LAN switching, and flexible Layer 3 WAN routing into a single ruggedized platform. This robust Internet Protocol (IP) networking device integrates embedded security processing, generous performance, high memory capacity, and high-density interfaces to deliver the performance, availability, and reliability required for scaling mission-critical applications.

Network features include port autosensing, QoS and VLAN capabilities compliant with 802.1p and 802.1Q standards, and 802.1D Spanning Tree protocols. For ease of management and configuration, the router features the intuitive, Web-based Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) with support for Secure Shell Protocol Version 2 (SSHv2) and Simple Network Management Protocol Version 3 (SNMPv3) protocols to encrypt the management session. Select models also integrate a Cisco VPN Hardware Encryption Acceleration module and upgraded system and Flash memory configurations.

DuraNET 3825 units have already shipped in support of US and NATO defense programs and are built-to-order.
