The Parvus DuraNET 3300 is the embedded market's most rugged Cisco IOS-based small form factor switch. Integrating Ciscos ESS-3300 switch, the DuraNET 3300 offers best-in-class networking capabilities, such as 10 Gigabit (10G) optical connectivity, MACsec Layer 2 encryption, and SWaP-enhancing Power over Ethernet (PoE) support all in a highly reliable chassis engineered to endure the harshest environmental conditions.
Enhancing Network Security with MACsec
IEEE 802.1AE (also known as MACsec) crypto has somewhat levelled the playing field between copper and fiber optics in regards to security, and positioned copper wiring for some applications where optical wiring was formerly the sole contender. First standardized in 2006, but not fully embraced for another decade, MACsec is now seeing increased adoption, driven by the fact that MACSec support was added to the Linux kernel (as of kernel 4.6) in 2016.
