PIOLNK has acquired a patent about the method of configuring a network on a switch, with a data storage device which are supported by switches and computers.
Before this method, you could download the network configuration on a management server, only after designating an IP address on the server.
The new method supports the network configuration on a switch after downloading the configuration from the central management server, through the cellular network.
As each switch needs to be installed in various conditions – even where it is not possible to use wires for the connection, you can dramatically reduce the time, cost, and human resource (which are necessary for the installation step) with this method of using the wireless connection.
PIOLINK plans to apply this technology on their products such as the cloud switch models.
