CrossLock Technology

Quite simply the most advanced network management tool on the market today, CrossLock gives users the ability to manage and bond multiple data connections together simultaneously. When a new network is introduced, Crosslock will immediately evaluate how much bandwidth is available, while factoring in latency and jitter information, and combine the two connections to take advantage of all available bandwidth. More than just combining networks, CrossLock can also monitor each data connection individually and, when necessary, apply appropriate error correction, recovery, or concealment techniques.


With its 7-hour Lithium Ion battery, integrated mixer, easy-to-navigate touch screen, and handheld form factor, ACCESS can go (and has gone) just about everywhere.
