Crystal Group Rugged Networking appliances bring plug-and-play functionality to harsh environments and demanding military, industrial, and commercial applications. Top-of-the-line switches, firewalls, and routers are housed in rugged, lightweight, and compact enclosures, such as transit cases or 19-inch racks with strain-hardened aircraft aluminum, designed to survive extreme environments, extreme temperatures, and high shock and vibration.
Crystal Group rugged networking appliances are lightweight, ranging from 9 pounds to 48 pounds (4.8 kilograms to 21.77 kilograms) and compact, with depths from 12.25 inches to 20 inches. Crystal Group’s rugged networking devices are encased in all-aluminum chassis constructed with 6061T-651 strain-hardened structural aircraft aluminum, cross-sections, and MIL-C-5541E Class 3 Chem Film protection.
Shock and vibe survivability is enhanced through multiple attachment points on circuit boards to stabilize the printed wiring board (PWB), all fasteners and connectors retained with locking mechanisms, and all cables dressed and secured to prevent chafing. Crystal Group’s ruggedized switches, firewalls, and routers work in extended temperature ranges (-15°C to +55°C); offer basic routing protocols (RIPv1, RIPv2, RIPng, Static) and advanced routing protocols (OSPF, IGRP, EIGRP, IS-ISv4, BGPv4); support IPv6 routing; and are compatible with industry-standard command line technology.
