Internet-enable Virtually Any Device.  Multi-Connect provides the powerful ability to IP-enable serial devices allowing more options for data acquisition, device management, and industrial control than would otherwise be available. The device server includes an embedded TCP/IP protocol stack that provides transparent serial data-to-Internet protocol conversion, eliminating the need for any hardware modifications. Simply install MultiConnect between a serial device and an analog, ISDN or wireless modem to send and receive data over the Internet. It can also serve a single web page in response to a web browser request.

Reduces Development Time.  Multi-Connect actually provides faster time-to-market because it relieves the burden and expense of writing and maintaining Internet applications. The complete, ready-to-integrate MultiConnect device server allows you to enhance your product while you focus on developing its core features.

Management and Configuration.  Multi-Connect has several means of management and configuration built into the design. It supports remote configuration, which means you can have central site setup and control of the remote device servers via a telnet session.
