Parvus Announces First Customer Shipment of DuraMAR 5915, Cisco IOS-Managed Rugged Mobile IP Router

Parvus Packages Cisco 5915 Router Technology in Rugged, Sealed Enclosure Ready for Extreme Military / Aerospace IP Networking Applications (March 22, 2012)

SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwire) -- 03/22/12 -- Eurotech subsidiary Parvus announces first customer shipments (FCS) for the DuraMAR 5915, an ultra-rugged Commercial-Off the Shelf (COTS) mobile router subsystem based on Cisco Systems' 5915 Embedded Services Router (ESR) card. Initial shipments of the DuraMAR 5915 were in support of land-based satellite communications (satcom) and fixed wing aircraft programs.

Optimized for Size, Weight and Power (SWaP), as well as mechanical robustness under extreme environmental conditions per MIL-STD-810G (thermal, shock, vibration, humidity, dust, water), the DuraMAR 5915 empowers military and civilian contractors to deploy Cisco Mobile Ready Net capabilities, including data, video, and voice services virtually anywhere LAN or WAN connectivity may be required, particularly in mobile, airborne, ground, manned or unmanned vehicle applications.

"The DuraMAR 5915 represents Parvus' fifth generation, military-grade rugged mobile access router based on Cisco networking technologies," said Parvus Director of Marketing Mike Southworth. "During the design phase, Parvus considered previous military program requirements where legacy designs have been deployed and included enhanced capabilities that represent best of class specifications to enable this ruggedized COTS router solution can be deployed in the harshest vehicle, aircraft, and shipboard environmental conditions as-is without modifications. It truly is an ideal migration path for legacy Cisco 3200-based router subsystems for rugged IP networking technology refresh and situational awareness applications, and we are excited to see it roll out to customers in the field."

The DuraMAR 5915 is available as either a standalone 5 port router or with an integrated Gigabit Ethernet switch for a total of 19 Ethernet ports. The unit is completely sealed against dust and water ingress, requires no active cooling, provides interfaces over MIL-C-38999 style connectors, and features a military-grade power supply supporting aircraft (MIL-STD-704F) and ground/marine (MIL-STD-1275D) vehicle voltage inputs, spikes, and transient levels, as well as MIL-STD-461F EMI/EMC filtering.

The unit delivers the performance, security, advanced Quality of Service (QoS), high availability and manageability expected from Cisco Enterprise IOS-based routing technology. It supports extensive IPv4 and IPv6 routing protocols, IP multicasting, Radio Aware Routing (RAR), Dynamic Link Exchange Protocol (DLEP) and Mobile IP routing for transparent connectivity to a roaming vehicle network in Comms on the Move (COTM) applications. An onboard AES hardware encryption engine offloads encryption processing from the router to provide highly secure yet scalable data, video, and voice services.
