Redpark ships Ethernet Cable for iPad and iPhone

Redpark Product Development announced today that it is now shipping the industry’s first Ethernet Cable for iPad and iPhone.
Lightning to Ethernet cableThe Redpark Ethernet Cable is a specialty version of USB to Ethernet adapter. It provides a general purpose ethernet connection — however, throughput is limited to 5 Mbps and only apps which use Redpark’s RedSocket SDK are able to communicate with the cable.

“We’ve designed the Ethernet Cable for use in field service applications”, noted Redpark president Mike Ridenhour. “It enables field technicians to use Ethernet to connect an iPad or iPhone to equipment in the field in order to configure or troubleshoot the equipment.”

“iPad and iPhone are rapidly replacing laptops for use in field service applications,” explained Ridenhour. “Our serial cables for iPad and iPhone have been very well received in this market. The new Ethernet Cable allows enterprises to make further use of iPad and iPhone for field service work.”

An Ethernet Cable FAQ provides more details about cable functionality and app compatibility. The Ethernet Cable has an MSRP of $89 and is available today.
