Serial Interface Converters

Metrodata’s serial interface converters offer a cost effective way to connect Router Serial WAN Interface cards (or similar) to alternative serial interface technologies, such as E1/G.703 leased lines. This conversion is performed transparently and so is independent of protocol or router configuration. Various serial port combinations options are available. These products are available as standalone modem style units, can be rack mounted using either a 1U two unit rack mount kit or a 6U eighteen unit rack mount kit.
