The Parvus DuraNET® 3000 is a ruggedized version of Cisco Systems’ IE-3000 industrial Ethernet switch, specifically hardened for use in demanding military / civil IP networking technology refresh applications. This fully managed network switch delivers the security, advanced Quality of Service (QoS), high availability, and manageability that customers expect from Cisco IOS-based switching technology, including optional Layer 3 IP Routing services. Designed with mechanical enhancements to support deployment of data, video, and voice services in extreme temperatures, shock, vibration, humidity, and exposure to dust, water, and EMI/EMC environments, the unit requires no active cooling, is completely sealed, and provides proven MIL-DTL-38999 connector interfaces (including a variant with a fiber optic Gigabit Ethernet uplink).
Leveraging the modular nature of the Cisco IE-3000 platform, Parvus’ DuraNET 3000 subsystem comes in several configurations to flexibly scale Ethernet port density from ten (10) to eighteen (18) or twenty-six (26) Ethernet ports. This enables customers to match size, weight, and power (SWaP), along with cost and functional requirements to program needs. Suitable for ground vehicle and aircraft installations, the DuraNET 3000 features MIL-STD-1275 / 704 transient protection and MIL-STD-461F filtering, and is qualified to meet MIL-STD-810G / DO-160G environmental conditions.
With software built on the Cisco IOS Catalyst architecture, the DuraNET 3000 offers ease of use and can be configured and managed using a web-based GUI Cisco Device Manager, plus network management tools like Cisco Network Assistant and CiscoWorks. The Layer 2+ version features a specialized Catalyst 2960 LAN Base Image, whereas the Layer 3 version offers a Catalyst 3750 IP services image with a Layer 3+ feature set. The Layer 3 switch supports high performance routing features, such as static, InterVLAN routing, dynamic routing protocols, multicast and IPv6 routing. Security features include port security, layer 2 to layer 4 access list, enhanced identity-based networking with 802.1x, network admission control, DHCP snooping, dynamic ARP inspection, IP source guard, private VLANs, and others. These features help protect network from unauthorized users, prevent denial of service attacks and ensure that sensitive information is protected.
