"Digi International announced today that Linux drivers are now available for its EtherLite line of network serial concentrators, enabling powerful serial port connectivity under the popular, versatile Linux operating system."

"Serial concentrators connect terminals, modems and microcomputers over serial lines to local area networks (LANs) or wide area networks (WANs). They provide network access to terminals, printers and computers that don't have built-in network support. Serial concentrators provide the inter-network intelligence that is not available in the connected devices."

"Digi EtherLite serial concentrators simplify the process of adding RS-232, 6 RS-422, and RS-485 serial ports to the network by combining the control and performance of local ports with the convenience of an Ethernet connection. As the EtherLite ports are real serial devices, they aren't weighed down by complex network terminal server overhead. The result is a much simpler configuration, less Ethernet congestion, and a much lower cost per port when compared to conventional Ethernet terminal servers."
