The 3002 Client, a small-footprint, book-sized device designed for wall mount or table top operation, currently comes in two models. The CPVN3002-K9 has two 10/100 Mbps RJ-45 Ethernet autosensing interfaces: one for the outside or public connection and one for the inside or private connection. This makes the device ideal for placement between a DSL or a cable modem, either connected directly to a workstation or to multiple hosts via a separate switch or hub.
The CVPN3002-K9 sports a single 10/100 Mbps RJ-45 Ethernet autosensing interface for the public connection plus eight 10/100 Mbps Ethernet autosensing interfaces via an integrated switch. This device can provide simplified installation for the small office or home that needs to connect several computers to the network, or the switch can connect to additional switches, providing connections for up to 253 host devices. Figure 13-2 shows the back of the 8E unit.
