Amaro (Italy) – May 5th, 2011 – Eurotech subsidiary Parvus Corp. announces a $2.2M (USD) follow-on order for rugged Ethernet switches with a US prime Defense contractor in support of a US Department of Defense (DoD) tactical communications program. Due to non-disclosure agreements, no further details about the customer can be provided. Deliveries will take place during this year.
Specified by the customer is the Parvus DuraNET 2955 Ethernet switch subsystem, a ruggedized Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) product based on Cisco technology and developed for military and harsh mobile applications.
