The 500FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller card provides a single point of access to communicate with VistaLINK® capable 500 series modules. The 500FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller provides a 10Base-T/100Base-TX Ethernet port and communication is facilitated through the use of Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). The 500FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller handles all SNMP communications between the frame and the network manager (NMS), and serves as a gateway to individual cards in the frame. The 500FC is a TRUE SNMP Agent, and can be connected directly to your Ethernet/SNMP network. No external intermediate translator application servers or PC based protocol translators are required.
