Parvus DuraNET 30-2020 Ruggedized Cisco ESS-2020 Ethernet Switch is designed for Size, Weight and Power (SwaP) sensitive harsh environments.

This product has an End of Life Notice.

For new design programs, please consider the Parvus DuraNET 3300 24-port Gigabit Ethernet Switch.

The Parvus DuraNET 30-2020 is an ultra-rugged 19-port Cisco IOS-managed Layer 2+ network switch subsystem integrating Cisco’s ESS 2020 Embedded Services Switch technology with an isolated MIL-STD-1275/704 power supply in an IP67 (dust/water proof) sealed aluminum chassis with MIL-DTL-38999 connectors. Designed for size, weight and power (SWaP) sensitive harsh military and civil environments (i.e. aircraft, vehicle, mining, industrial), the unit provides reliable local area network (LAN) switching capabilities with the ease of use, secure access, and manageability expected from Cisco-based technology. Two levels of Cisco IOS software (LAN Lite or LAN Base) are available to support access layer connectivity and needs for data, security, voice, and video traffic at the network edge for stationary or mobile network nodes. Validating its robust Information assurance (IA) and network interoperability, the DuraNET 30-2020 has been US DoD Unified Capabilities Approved Product List (UC APL) certified.

An ideal solution for IP networking technology refresh and situational awareness applications, the DuraNET 30-2020 enables IPv4 and IPv6 devices (computers, cameras, sensors, routers, etc.) to be networked across extended operating temperature ranges (-40 to +85C) and extreme shock/vibration conditions. The unit is qualification tested to extreme MIL-STD-461F, DO-160G, and MIL-STD-810G thermal, shock, vibe, humidity, ingress, and EMI/EMC conditions. To enhance reliability, the unit features no moving parts, a near cable-less internal design, industrial temperature grade components, EMI filtering, and power protections for the voltage surges, spikes and transients of aircraft/vehicles.

Backwards compatible with the functionality and connector pinout of the DuraNET 2955, the DuraNET 30-2020 provides an enhanced migration path for legacy deployed Cisco Catalyst 2955T-based switch subsystems. Physical dimensions and weight are reduced, Ethernet port density is greater (2x GigE uplinks + 17x 10/100) and EMI/dust/water ingress and input power protections are improved. The DuraNET 30-2020’s modular chassis also enables related configurations that combine the Cisco ESS 2020 switch together with a Cisco 5915 IOS router (see the DuraMAR 5915 2X Series), as well as a multi-function networking and computing appliance, combining Cisco router, switch, and x86 Core i7-based mission computer into a single Line Replaceable Unit.
