PolNet 2.01 Offers Protection!
Don't take chances with your network! PolNet helps protect valuable equipment and information from transient voltage surges often carried over phone lines*.

PolNet 2.01 Secures Information!
Protect your network information! User-determined security access codes for device ports keep your information safe from unwanted callers or system hackers. Up to seven characters long, your access codes become virtually unbreakable.

How the PolNet ACP 2.01 Works:
When installed, the ACP automatically answers the line and determines where each call should be routed. "Data Polling" calls that produce the proper security access code (DTMF tones) get routed to the assigned modem or device for each code. The ACP also detects CNG tones for automatic routing to fax equipment. In the absence of tones, the ACP routes calls to phone or phone system.
