Networking tutorials, including expanded wireless content


Irvine, CA —Tutorials are an important information asset for engineers, so Lantronix Inc. has updated its popular networking materials. As part of the Lantronix Web site “Learning Center,” the updated information expands the popular networking educational tools that have provided a solid foundation and understanding of basic networking protocols and techniques for many years. Advanced topics such as serial-to-Ethernet and wireless serial-port 802.11 connectivity are also covered.

“Networking has become a pervasive, worldwide reality because it is fast, efficient, reliable and effective,” said David Schafer, Lantronix’s senior vice president of worldwide sales. “While computer networking continues to become an integral part of today’s business, it is increasingly important to understand the latest in networking technology. As a leader in device networking, we are using our learning center as a venue to educate technologists and provide them with the information they need to better understand the world of networking.”


Lantronix offers six different papers including:

  • Ethernet tutorials;

  • Networking basics and adding speed;

  • An introduction to servers: device, terminal, and console;

  • A fast Ethernet tutorial;

  • A device server tutorial; and

  • A network switching tutorial.

The tutorials span many important topics, including the newest solutions available for M2M (machine-to-machine) connectivity and remote management of console servers and data center equipment. Understanding the ability to network anything. “Network Everything,”—the tutorials—also focus on the various technologies used to connect any device to a network or the Internet including wired and wireless device servers. In addition, the tutorials educate readers on network security and provide an overview of encryption standards including the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).
