The Vantage IP Enabler provides Vantage Master Controllers and
C-Boxes an Ethernet port. This allows a computer to connect to a
Vantage controller through a local area network, or even through
the Internet. This allows long-distance master to master communications.
It also allows master communications with other third-party Internet
protocol devices. With an IP Enabler, both QLink and WebPoint can
have high speed access to the Vantage system directly through the
IP Enabler's IP address. This ability can be used to remotely control
or program a system.
The IP Enabler comes in a standard form, or with an embedded Vantage
Portal, which provides a communications bridge between the Vantage
system and the Vantage Designer Toolbox.
