Other features include; sophisticated mobile networking capabilities and rugged mechanical design.

With a fully dust and water proof enclosure and ruggedized M12 or RJ-45 connectors, the DuraMAR 31-5915 is designed to reliably interface with on board vehicle computers, cameras, Ethernet switches, sensors, monitoring devices, and command-and-control equipment in extreme environments. Company believes that these capabilities can enable transportation authorities, government agencies, energy companies, and heavy industry suppliers to deploy Cisco mobile ready net capabilities; including data, video, and voice services virtually anywhere LAN or WAN connectivity may be required.

The DuraMAR 31-5915 features a shock/vibration resistant design supporting extended temperature operation from -40ºF to +160ºF, providing Ethernet connectivity over rugged field deployable RJ-45 or M12 connectors in a sealed metal chassis designed for mounting to any machine or flat surface.
