Eurotech has announced the new DuraMAR® 2150 series mobile-access router, an integrated rugged mobile IP router designed for net-centric operation in vehicle installations such as on trains, buses and metros. Leveraging Cisco Systems’ industry standard IOS® software and 3200 series mobile-access routing (MAR) technology, along with Eurotech embedded Linux wireless communication controller, the DuraMAR router enables prime contractors and systems integrators to achieve mobile communications-on-the-move (COTM) and a wide range of new in-vehicle networking applications: from wireless Internet access to voice-over IP (VoIP), and passenger WiFi services to streaming video surveillance and smart vehicle diagnostic/maintenance.
The DuraMAR 2150 model is particularly well-suited for demanding train-borne applications where system operational reliability and integrated structure are required. This durable router is designed to meet shock, vibration, humidity, safety and protection standards of IP65, EN50155, EN61373, as well as radiated and conducted EMI/EMC levels and immunity of EN50121. One 10Mbit/100Mbit Ethernet port is brought out through a sealed locking automotive grade connector. The wireless terminals, such as GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA, IEEE 802.11 a/b/g and/or CDMA2000 EV-DO Rev.A, may be integrated inside the DuraMAR 2150 router.
An internal three-band GPRS/GSM modem allows remote-access to the DuraMAR 2150 for diagnostics, status-monitoring, configuration, as well as alarms using SNMP protocol. This independent wireless interface enables remote-access to HW modules of the system such as the embedded PC, router wireless interfaces, as well as the CISCO router. SNMP protocol can be used over GPRS TCP/IP data to query the DuraMAR 2150 independently of the wireless interfaces used for primary router communication.
The mobile-access router is ideally suited for integration in vehicles. It offers secure data, voice and video communications, seamless mobility and interoperability across multiple wireless networks. Applications can be made in the transportation, defense, public safety and homeland security markets.
