Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. has announced a new version of its MultiConnect AW analog-to-wireless converter, the MultiConnect AEW analog-to-Ethernet/Wireless converter. Well suited for customers leveraging legacy analog networks, the converter is a turnkey solution that allows legacy equipment with built-in analog modems to continue to connect natively using analog connector to the cellular packet data network or a wired Ethernet internet connection.
The newest model features an integrated cellular radio, an RJ-11 port and RJ-45 Ethernet 10/100 support. Additionally it supports inbound and outbound traffic for enhanced monitoring and control. MultiConnect AEW features a Web interface for easy set up and configuration and acts as a gateway between analog to cellular and analog to Ethernet with failover capabilities.
“The options to connect over either Ethernet or cellular is an attractive proposition for those customers that wish to reduce costs by using an always on wired or wireless broadband network,” said Alex Romero, product manager at MultiTech. “The easy-to-install and versatile AEW emulates a traditional dial-up PSTN network over Ethernet or cellular and is ideally suited for customers in the Medical, Industrial Automation and ATM/Vending Machines markets for whom it imparts new life to devices currently using traditional analog dial-up communications.”
