Networking & Communication

Ethernet switches connect wired devices such as computers, servers and printers to a local area network using multiple ports. Ethernet switches provide a more robust performance over hubs because they can devote more bandwidth to certain ports rather than an even distribution between all ports.

Firewall routers most commonly connect local area networks to wide area networks with the added protection of monitoring the data and blocking incoming threats.

Serial device servers modify serial transmissions into Ethernet compatible signals so that they can used remotely by network connected applications. Serial devices will then be able to communicate over an IP-based network without disrupting the method used for communication.

Industrial modems and routers connect devices to local area networks and wide area networks with high-speed applications that transfer large amounts of data. These industrial-grade devices are made of robust materials that can withstand harsh environmental conditions.

Media converters are network devices that convert electrical signal in copper network cabling to light waves used for optic cabling. This allows two network devices to be connected across long distances and a smooth integration of new equipment into an existing cabling infrastructure.

Gateways act as a portal between two programs to communicate by converting the protocol of one device to a suitable protocol for the other device. This single point of access can provide safety and rapid data transmission.
