Network Equipment Type
   Equipment Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Access Points       Access points are transmitters/receivers (transceivers) that connect to a network through an interface, such as a bus or connector. They receive, store, and transmit data between the wireless local-area network (WLAN) and the wired structure. End-users access the network through WLAN adapters, which are also equipped with transceiver capabilities. 
   Analog-to-Wireless Converter       Analog-to-wireless converters allow legacy equipment with built-in analog modems to connect to the cellular data networks by emulating the traditional dial-up PSTN network. 
   Bridge       Network bridges interconnect local or remote networks. They centralize network administration by forming a single logical network. Bridges operate at the physical and link layers of the open systems interconnection (OSI) reference model. 
   Extender / Repeater       Network repeaters are 802.3 network cable segments. Regeneration and retiming ensure that the signal is transmitted clearly through all segments. 
   Firewall       Network firewalls are a system or group of systems that, for purposes of security, enforce an access control policy between an organization's network and the Internet. 
   Hub       Network hubs provide a central location for attaching wires to workstations. They can be passive or active. Passive hubs do not amplify signals. Active hubs are used like repeaters to extend the cable that connects to a workstation. 
   IP Phone       IP phones use telephony technology to transmit calls over an IP network. IP phones can transmit audio as well as video over the network, allowing organizations to communicate easily.  
   Modem       Network modems enable computers to transmit data over analog wires or digital lines. They are used to connect to the Internet and to local or wide area networks (LANs and WANs), where users can access and share computing resources. 
   Router       Network routers are protocol-dependent devices that connect sub-networks. Although they can separate a very large network into smaller sub-networks, routers introduce longer delays and typically have much lower throughput rates than network bridges. Routers operate at the Layer 3 network layer. 
   Gateway       Network gateways are devices that can interconnect networks with different, incompatible communications protocols. They perform a Layer-7 protocol-conversion to translate one set of protocols into another (for example, from TCP/IP to SNA or from TCP/IP to X.25). Gateways operate at OSI layers up through the session layer. 
   Multiplexer       Network multiplexers are telecommunications devices that funnel multiple signals onto a single channel. 
   Power Line Network Adapter       Power line network adapters use existing electrical power lines as carriers for data communications signals. They typically have lower bandwidths compared to networks that use dedicated fiber optic or twisted pair carriers. 
   Switch       Network switches connect network devices to host computers. They allow a large number of devices to share a limited number of ports. Network switches are used both in computer networks and in telecommunications networks. Ethernet LAN switches use variable-sized packets or frames. ATM switches use small, fixed-sized cells for telecom applications. 
   Transceiver       Network transceivers (transmitters-receivers) are devices that both transmit and receive analog or digital signals. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary network equipment types. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Area Network Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Campus Area Network (CAN)       Campus area networks (CAN) are networks covering multiple local area networks (LANs) at universities, school districts or small business campuses. They are smaller than metropolitan area networks (MAN). 
   Enterprise Area Network (EAN)       Enterprise area networks (EAN) are networks that securely connect all locations for business networks.  
   Local Area Network (LAN)       Local area networks (LAN) are networks that connect a group of computers and devices, such as printers or scanners, over short distances. 
   Metropolitan Area Network (MAN)       Metropolitan area networks (MAN) are networks that connect devices over medium distances, such as a town or city. They are larger reaching than local area networks (LAN) but smaller than wide area networks (WAN). 
   Storage Area Network (SAN)       Storage area networks (SAN) are dedicated networks that connect storage devices to other storage devices. 
   Wide Area Network (WAN)       Wide area networks (WAN) are networks that connect devices over large physical distances, such as the internet. 
   Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN)       Wireless local area networks (WLAN) are networks that connect devices wirelessly over short distances, similarly to local area networks (LAN).
