AUSA 2013: Techaya Debuts Military-grade, Ruggedized Compact 12-port Ethernet Switch with new embedded Cisco Router

  • November 21, 2013

    New Ethernet Switch delivers full Cisco routing capabilities to defense and avionics industries while delivering smallest size, weight and power (SWaP) specification available

    Washington DC, Nov 21, 2013 – Techaya, a prime developer of military-grade, ruggedized IP-based communication solutions will debut the MILTECH™ 9012-C military- grade Ethernet switch with routing capabilities, at AUSA 2013, October 21-23, Washington, D.C., Israel Pavilion, Hall B, Stand #2357. Designed for defence and avionic applications, the Cisco-based 2-kg device combines full Ethernet switching and routing capabilities in to the industry’s smallest form factor.

    The MIL-STD MILTECH 9012-C is a 12 port Gigabit managed Ethernet switch that has embedded the Cisco IOS routing functions to deliver a flexible communications platform with industry-standard network control and management. The MILTECH 9012-C uniquely combines high-throughput managed Gigabit switching with the full capabilities of a Cisco ESR router.

    The MILTECH 9012-C features mechanical packaging and technological enhancements designed to comply with MIL-STD-810F, MIL-STD-461 & MIL-STD-1275/704A to deliver high reliability in the most extreme environments. Successfully tested in multiple locations in
    Israel and around the world, the uniquely ruggedized unit has been hardened – as part of the manufacturing process – to improve ingress, impact, and shock/vibration protection. The switch-router is passively cooled with no moving parts and uses sealed Amphenol connectors to comply with IP67 standards.

    “Techaya has significant investments in R&D to develop products that withstand the tests of the modern battlefield and avionics. We are dedicated to the creation of cutting-edge communications solutions that deliver innovative size, weight and power (SWaP) requirements that are needed at the intersection of mobility and networked communications,” according to Ehud Palgi. “The MILTECH 9012-C is another example of how Techaya has taken a novel approach to combine and switching and routing capabilities in to a unique architecture and physical platform.”

    Techaya products are distributed exclusively through MilSource in the United State.
