AS communicate to ES using Telephone line?

Environment

Cause

Allowing remote access where broadband/ethernet is not available. Plus redundant access when the LAN goes down.

Resolution

ES and AS communication with the current release requires Ethernet communication. The use of a modem or telephone lines for communication between AS and ES has not been developed. This however is on the roadmap and will be included in a future release.

The AS does have USB ports facing down for future connection to external devices such as telephone modems, printers, memory expansion, and expansion modules.
