Communicate with remote telcom and IT network assets more efficiently.
Designed for out-of-band network access to service ports, the TL500A enables businesses to communicate with remote telcom and IT network assets more efficiently and securely while cutting costs. Share up to five devices on one phone line. The switch can be used to routinely access remote service ports on equipment and to provide redundant POTS connectivity to equipment when the IT network is down. It automatically routes incoming calls to modems, faxes, phones, and/or service points. Vulnerable PSTN pathways are protected with seven-character security access codes (DTMF), creating a telephony firewall for dial-up devices.
