WIN-T Increment 2 continues to use Parvus Ethernet switches

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah. Parvus Corp., a Eurotech subsidiary, won follow-on orders from General Dynamics C4S, the prime contractor for the U.S. Army’s Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) program. Parvus Ethernet switches have bene used in the WIN-T tactical network for about four years. Deliveries for the latest follow-on orders - valued at $4.8 million -- are expected to happen over the next 3-5 months.

Increment 2 uses proven government and commercial technology, including the ruggedized Cisco-based Ethernet switch subsystem from Parvus. The equipment enables soldiers and commanders to have communications capabilities while on the move and also enhance warfighter safety and effectiveness. WIN-T Increment 2 began fielding in the Fall of last year and enables soldiers to use applications for maneuver, fire, and intelligence from inside vehicles, allowing commanders to make decisions on-the-move.

The Parvus Ethernet switch is MIL-STD qualified and hardened for extreme ingress, temperatures, shock, and vibration for reliable local area network (LAN) connectivity to IP-enabled computing and net-centric devices. For more information, visit www.parvus.com.
