Parvus Ruggedized Cisco IOS-Managed Switch Successfully Completes MIL-STD 
Certifications for MIL-STD-810G and MIL-STD-461F 
Parvus DuraNET 3000 Passes Extreme MIL-STD Environmental, EMI Tests
Qualifying Rugged Ethernet Switch Subsystem for Airborne, Ground,
Manned or Unmanned Vehicle Applications 
SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwire) -- 02/11/13 --  Eurotech
subsidiary Parvus Corporation announces that the DuraNET 3000, 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. With these certifications in
place, the DuraNET 3000 is now a COTS solution proven suitable for
deployment in military and aerospace applications, saving DoD prime
contractors the time and expense of performing such tests on their
own in support of government programs.  
Passing MIL-STD compliance tests ensures that the DuraNET 3000 can
operate in harsh conditions onboard un(manned) aircraft, ground
vehicles, and maritime platforms virtually anywhere LAN or WAN
connectivity may be required. Designed with mechanical enhancements
to support deployment of data, video, and voice services in extreme
temperatures, shock, vibration, humidity, as well as exposure to
dust, water, and EMI/EMC environments, this ruggedized Cisco
IOS-managed Layer 2 / Layer 3 network switch requires no active
cooling, is completely sealed, and provides interfaces over
MIL-DTL-38999 connectors.  
The MIL-STD-810 parameters used for testing / analysis included: 

--  Operating Temperature: -40 degrees  to +71 degrees C / -40 degrees  to
    +160 degrees F
--  Storage Temperature: -40 degrees  to +85 degrees C / -40 degrees  to
    185 degrees F
--  Shock: 40g Operating Shock, 75g Crash Hazard Shock
--  Random Vibration: Jet, Helicopter and Tracked Vehicle Test Profiles
--  Humidity: Up to 95% RH, NC (Conformal Coated PWBs)
--  Water Immersion: 1 Meter, 30 Minutes
--  Blowing Sand and Dust per MIL-STD-810G, Method 501.5 (Sealed
--  Altitude: 13,000 feet (3,962 meters) Operating, 40,000 feet (12,192
    meters) Storage

The DuraNET 300
0 is currently shipping, and due to its modular nature
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.
