Is there another meaning for 'online' apart from the obvious one?

The sentence:

"The [cushioning] system can be configured to stand upright, online, or horizontally for under-the-table placements."

disagree  fivexs (X): the word would be internetiin kytketty, but in this case it just doesn't sound right by looking at the whole sentence.

Explanation:
To be fairly honest, i'd love to know what the device is, but for a thing that can be put to stand upright, online, or horizontally, the whole sentence reeks from word misplacement. Why would you talk about putting the device upright or horizontally and at the same time talk about connective?

kytketty, not kytketyy - spelling mistake
