A gateway is a node (router) in a computer network, a key stopping point for data on its way to and from other networks and often acts as a proxy server and a firewall. Gateways regulate traffic between two dissimilar networks, while routers regulate traffic between similar networks. These devices are selected by specific function, modulation or protocol, operational frequency, data rate, power output and interface.
Media converters provide industrial grade media conversion from cable-based Ethernet equipment to fiber-optic protocols such as Gigabit, SFP, XFP, 10BASE-FL or 100BASE-FX in singlemode or multimode setup. Fixed or modular configurations with managed or unmanaged topology are selected by number of ports, manufacturer's series, communication distance, mounting and connector types, and voltage input.
A variety of devices that are related to parts in this category, but do not fit into a specific family.
Serial Device Servers
Serial device servers allow RS-232/485/422, USB, TTL or UART serial devices to join single or multiport networks by providing serial to network two-way data transmission. Network types include CAN, CC-Link, ControlNet, DeviceNet, Ethernet, FIPIO, Interbus, Modbus, PROFIBUS, PROFINET, wireless and fiber-optic.
Products in the switch and hub family are finished goods products that allow the interconnection of multiple branch circuits in USB or Ethernet networks. Among Ethernet products, interconnection of different transport media such as fiber optic and twisted-pair cabling is also supported, and devices offering PoE support as either power sourcing equipment (PSE) or in a powered device (PD) capacity are also available.
