Serial Connectivity

External serial servers that provide connectivity to any serial device

Terminal servers and serial servers connect critical equipment to applications, providing 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, and 32 port serial-over-Ethernet options with transparent connectivity for existing serial applications. Administrators have multiple connectivity options, for example using Digi's RealPort driver, or TCP or UDP sockets. TLS, SSL or SSH-based connections provide robust encryption. Digi also offers 232-only and MEI-selectable 232/422/485 versions.
