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
