This family of network serial concentrators is capable of delivering additional serial ports to an Ethernet based computer network. The installation of this hardware component eliminates the need to install serial adapters within the computer server. The device driver of the Digi Etherlite 160 Port 1 provides the computer user with an easy installation option which results not only in network efficient but also control for a fraction of the cost of deployment. The possible areas of deployment of this hardware component and its associated device driver can be in the area of process control, retail Point Of Sales, data collection, as well as console based management of routers, clusters, hubs, PBXs, and other similar networking components that are equipped with console ports. What happens with the deployment of this hardware component is that it multiplexes all of the available serial ports into one session of the TCP/IP protocol. According to some industry experts this is done to minimize the amount of traffic flowing across the Ethernet based computer network.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
This communication port redirector hardware component along with its corresponding device driver is also responsible for the implementation of a device initiated proprietary technology. The device driver also supports the indicator LEDs found on the hardware component to symbolize the flow of power as well as the available links that are active. The automatic detection process carried out by the Digi Etherlite 160 Port 1 and its corresponding device driver allows for the automatic detection of either a 10 or 100 megabits per second on a standard Ethernet connection. The fields are likewise all upgradeable and supports the usage of a DHCP for easier Internet Protocol address configuration process. The design of this device allows for the implementation of a built-in transient voltage suppression system. The presence of the appropriate device driver allows for the implementation of data transmission speeds that can reach up to 115 kilobits per second on all available ports. The manner of transmission implemented by this device is done simultaneously. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Digi Etherlite 160 Port 1 errors before installing any driver updates.
