Gateway / Bridge / Router Solutions


Ixxat gateway solutions enable easy interconnection of communication networks and allow for using powerful data manipulation.

With the Ixxat gateway solutions you can interconnect different bus systems. The gateways are configured by easy to use tools. Although the configuration is easy, you can still use a a lot of filters and mapping rules. Beside that, the gateways do support a variety of protocols, file formats, visualization possibilities and manipulation functions like C user code.  Both the powerful and scalable hardware platforms and the easy-to-use tools for configuration/management make Ixxat gateways the ideal choice for your application. The gateway supports cyclic, event-triggered or user triggered sending methods and can be extended with RBS functionalities for automated checksum and counter calculations.
