VistaLINK® Frame Controller

The 7801FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller card provides a single point of access to communicate with VistaLINK®-capable modules. The 7801FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller provides a 10Base-T/100Base-TX/1000 Base-TX Ethernet port, and communication is facilitated through the use of Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

The 7801FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller handles all SNMP communications between the frame (7801FR) and the network manager (NMS), and serves as a gateway to individual cards in the frame.
