Wireless, RAS, PPP, Web Gateway and ... Modbus

We have it all

I hope they are doing every piece right because there is a lot of room for error here.

For that matter the vendor might get everything fine and in this design it would be real easy to see a lot of customers mess it up.

They mention the word security "all in total security." once in their marketing blurb but I can't find any white papers at their site.

Show me the meat!!!

No search capability either.

Far too many vendors say some really dumb things such as "it's spread spectrum, a technology used by the military to hide their signals --it's gotta be secure." All you have to do to shut them up is show them an Allied or a Digi-Key catalog. You can find all the modules and chip sets you'll need to duplicate their spread spectrum gear. Unless they built and certified their own stuff, chances are that they can get hacked with ease.

The bottom line is simple: These folks are peddling security through obscurity. The less they say about what they're selling, the better the product looks.
