entraNET: Extended Range IP / Ethernet and Serial Networking

MDS entraNETThe entraNET™ is a secure IP/Ethernet solution optimized for longer range and higher speed industrial wireless, with a high level of cyber-security. entraNET™ allows the connection of Ethernet and/or serial devices to an IP network. This includes mission-critical remote devices monitoring and controlling fixed assets (oil and gas wells, compressor stations, pipelines, fluid storage tanks, utility meters). The entraNET™ has also been optimized for mobility that allows it to be used in vehicles when applications require mobile network access.

entraNET Key Benefits:
