The Cinterion EHS6 modem is powered by an external power Adapter. PoE (Power over Ethernet) is not supported.
The Cinterion EHS6 modem is equiped with a 9-pins serial RS232 connector. A 9-pins serial cable is included.
If you do not have such port available on your physical computer, but you do have a USB port, you'll need an FTDI Cable.
If you do not have physical ports at all (for instance because you're running the software on a Virtual Machine), you'll need a Digi-One TCP/IP-Serial adapter.
FTDI USB/Serial Adapter Cable (USB Interface)
The Cinterion EHS6 modem does NOT have USB port. If you want to connect the modem to USB, you need the 'FTDI USB/Serial Adapter Cable'.
It comes with drivers for all 32- and 64-bit supported Windows operating systems.
Digi-One TCP/IP-Serial adapter (Network Interface)
For virtual hosting solutions (Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware, Citrix), you may not have exclusive access to your serial- or USB port(s). In this case, you can use a TCP/IP-Serial adapter. ActiveXperts offers the 'Digi One SP'. This adapter is also used in situations where you want to place the modem on a different location, for instance because of electrical interference.
