Quatech Inc., provider of wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) networking and device connectivity solutions, is shipping what it calls the "industry’s most advanced enterprise class IEEE 802.11b/g wireless Ethernet bridge adapters."

The Airborne Wireless Ethernet Bridge allows Ethernet enabled devices to connect to a high performance wireless 802.11 network. Available in external or embedded board versions, the units provide an integrated Network Address Translation (NAT) functionality, which provides plug and play connectivity and simple integration to any system with an Ethernet port.

Equipped with WPA-2 Enterprise Class security, the Quatech Ethernet Bridge supports the most flexible certificate delivery and management available in the M2M market, the company says. Capable of storing multiple certificates and private keys with support for PEM, DER, P12 and PFX formats, the management interface provides full control of delivery and configuration to ease end-user implementation of Enterprise-class embedded security.

Along with WEP, WPA, WPA2, 802.11i and Pre-shared Key (PSK), the integrated supplicant supports a wide variety of EAP processes including EAP-TLS/MSCHAPv2, EAP-TLS/MD5, EAP-TTLS/MSCHAPv2, and LEAP.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
