Thanks to its industry standard Cisco Internetwork Operating System (IOS)-based managed switching and routing architecture, the DuraMAR 5915 can also significantly reduce user training requirements. Designed to deliver optimal performance in harsh conditions, the rugged, compact unit is designed to meet MIL-STD-810G, MIl-STD-461F, MIL-STD-1275, MIL-STD-704F, and RTCA/DO-160G standards. The DuraMAR 5915 speeds and simplifies the integration of networking routing and switching functionality in deployed military and commercial aerospace applications such as tactical ground vehicles and rotary and fixed wing aircraft. It enables system integrators to deploy Cisco Mobile Ready Net capabilities, including data, video, and voice services, virtually anywhere LAN or WAN connectivity may be required, especially in mobile, airborne, ground, manned or unmanned vehicle and sensor applications.
Because the DuraMAR 5915 subsystem integrates a Cisco-based router/switch solution in a single subsystem, it eliminates the need for the system designer to choose between either a rugged Cisco router/non-Cisco switch approach or the use of multiple, standalone Cisco-based router and switch boxes.
The DuraMAR 5915 complements Curtiss-Wright’s Parvus DuraNET 20-10 20-port GbE Switch and Parvus DuraCOR 80-40 mission computer subsystems in IP networking technology refresh and situational awareness upgrade applications deployed at the tactical network edge. When optionally integrated with a DuraCOR mission computer, the DuraNET 5915 forms the basis of a DuraWORX system to deliver further levels of LRU and SWaP-C reduction.
