The WireX converter, from eDevice, enables legacy equipment with embedded analog modems to immediately be switched from connecting through the traditional phone line to connecting through a cellular GSM / GPRS wireless network. WireX is the first Analog-To-Wireless converter designed for self installation by the end-user. It does not require any changes on the existing legacy device, the user only needs to disconnect the phone cable from the wall and plug it into the WireX dial-up connector. The data previously transferred over the phone link is then automatically transmitted using phone line emulation over a GPRS or GSM data cellular network. WireX is ideal for remote patient monitors, telecardiology monitors, alarm and security systems, TV set-top-boxes, point-of-sale equipment, energy metering systems, security, and access control devices.
Ethernet Direct rolled out the Falcon FWI-705 industrial 2.4GHz wireless ceiling access point. The FWI-705 links two or more separate networks to create a single expanded LAN network cost effectively and efficiently. A built-in 4dBi directional antenna is included for flexibility in installation. The Falcon FWI-705 supports three different operation modes: Access Point, Repeater, and AP + WDS. The wireless ceiling access point features WEP encryption and WAP function. The Ethernet Direct FWI-705 is ideal for industrial applications.
PMC-Sierra introduced the PAS65823A-KIT pluggable GPON Optical Network Terminal (ONT) reference design. The PAS65823A-KIT pluggable ONT reference design enables OEMs and ODMs to easily and cost-effectively connect any customer premises equipment (CPE) using a standard SFP port to a high-speed Passive Optical Network (PON) without any hardware or software redesign. The PAS PAS65823A-KIT pluggable GPON ONT reference design is available now.
GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the GS12 rugged, Ethernet switch. The GS12 switch is a standalone, fully managed Layer 2/3 Gigabit device with 12 Gigabit Ethernet ports and support for IPv6 switching and routing.
