Garden Grove, CA— DPAC Technologies has released AirborneDirect Ethernet, which is the third product in its Airborne 802.11b wireless line. AirborneDirect Ethernet is a plug-and-play Wi-Fi solution designed for OEMs, value-added resellers (VARs), and systems integrators. Similar to the company’s recently launched AirborneDirect Serial product, AirborneDirect Ethernet also uses DPAC’s Airborne Wireless LAN node module that further leverages the firm’s Airborne 802.11b 'wireless engine.' DPAC will begin volume production of AirborneDirect Ethernet in 2Q 2004.

'AirborneDirect Ethernet enables plug-and-play wireless LAN and Internet connectivity with equipment, devices and instruments that have a 10BaseT Ethernet port,' says Brett Trowbridge, DPAC’s VP. 'OEMs will now be able to instantly offer customers wireless access to currently selling industrial equipment or any installed base industrial equipment with an Ethernet port. VARs and system integrators also will be able to offer the same wireless access capabilities to their industrial customers.'

DPAC’s Airborne consists of 802.11b wireless networking products that provide LAN and Internet connectivity to instrumentation, process control, automotive, and medical, and other industrial equipment. AirborneDirect Serial and Ethernet products are 802.11b wireless LAN bridges designed to instantaneous, plug-and-play wireless network access to equipment that has a serial or Ethernet interface.
