or ELID, is
an electronic tag. When affixed to a
network asset, this tag emits a globally
unique identification number onto the
premise wiring. The signal emitted is
readable only by EtherLock II or to a
computer through one of it communication
ports (i.e. serial port, parallel port,
etc.). About the size of a postage
stamp, EtherLock ID installs permanently
on any asset in seconds. EtherLock ID is
normally installed by the asset provider
or when the asset is commissioned into
the inventory of the organization.
Each EtherLock ID stays affixed to an
asset for the entire lifecycle of that
asset. EtherLock ID tag maybe
removed from the asset upon the disposal
of that asset. Together with EtherLock,
EtherLock ID instills a transparent
change control platform, utilizing the
physical layer of your existing network.
ID Tethers are also available to
extend tagging to "child"
