Moxa Technologies was founded in 1987 by five high school classmates who started a consulting business to set up serial communications applications. The expertise they acquired led to the design and manufacture of MOXA multiport serial boards, which are now world renowned for providing high quality data transmission at one of the best cost/performance ratios in the industry.
The MOXA Group, which was established in 2003, consists of three separate companies—Moxa Technologies, Moxa Networking, and Moxa US. Moxa Technologies concentrates on providing serial-to-PC and serial-to-Ethernet solutions, whereas Moxa Networking specializes in Industrial Ethernet and Fiber solutions. Moxa US represents the interests of both Moxa Technologies and Moxa Networking in the North and South American markets. In general, products are marketed under the MOXA brand name, which has gained a reputation as one of the best brands in the industrial communications field.
MOXA focuses on creating data networking products that provide end-users with reliable and cost-effective serial-to-PC, serial-to-Ethernet, and industrial Ethernet solutions. In fact, much of Moxa’s R&D resources are concentrated on serial-to-Ethernet and Ethernet switch technology, since the current trend is to use Ethernet as an overall communications backbone for both business and industry. In addition, Ethernet LANs are now prevalent around the world, making it easy for even non-network professionals to set up Ethernet communications applications.
