Dasdec triple port Ethernet expansion option
The EXP3NICGIG adds three additional 10/100/1Gig Ethernet ports for a total of four independent Ethernet ports in the DASDEC-II emergency messaging platform. The only encoder/decoder with four completely independent and assignable Ethernet ports, the option allows users to easily allocate each port for a different network; a port for external access, a port for different users, and perhaps a firewall for any outside access. The unique benefit is multiple points of access across domains without needing complex bridges or modifying routing tables in existing equipment. To further ease integration each port can be assigned a static IP address, while ports one and two can also be set for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). With two lamps per port indicating link (green) and activity (amber) it's easy to confirm connection and communications between devices.
