This set of seven application notes shows you how to simplify test system integration by utilizing open connectivity standards such as local area networking (LAN). The collective goal of these notes is to help you produce reliable results, meet your throughput requirements and stay within your budget.

Using LAN in Test Systems: Network Configuration, the second note in the series, describes potential risks, suggests two secure topologies for LAN-based test systems, and outlines the essential aspects of system configuration. This note builds on the concepts presented in Application Note 1465-9, Using LAN in Test Systems: The Basics, which provides an introduction to the essential elements of local area networking, the basic attributes of test systems, and the benefits of using a LAN interface for control and data transfer in a test system.
