  • Includes a built-in modem RJ-11 port for setting up out-of-band access, as well as a DB9 port for an external modem.
  • Accessible in band (via Ethernet or secure tunnel over the Web) or out of band via a modem link.
  • Three USB ports plus an included 2 GB flash drive enable local FTP/TFTP storage.
  • Stores multiple local boot images locally for easy rollback. Supports off-line logs for audit trails, file backup, and disaster recovery.
  • Supports up to 50 concurrent sessions (SDT tunnels) open at the same time.
  • No limit on the number of clients who can access one gateway or the number of hosts accessed concurrently through one tunnel.
  • Advanced power management functions for monitoring a remote UPS and resetting a PDU or RPS using a user-friendly GUI.
  • Comes with IPSec High Availability VPN gateway software—great for electric utilities who need to meet NERC CIP standards.

  • For cost-effective console server management and reliable remote access to remote data center equipment, choose a Black Box Advanced Console Server.

    This platform provides secure serial console port control in a single box, whether you need 24/7 in-band or out-of-band access to your vital network-attached and serially attached devices in the data center. Plus, it's priced to fit the budget of most enterprises and educational, healthcare, and government institutions.

    Equipped with a built-in modem as well as dual 10/100 Ethernet ports, it gives you multiple access paths, plus a redundant AC power supply for power backup and maximum uptime. It also features 2 GB of USB flash memory for local FTP/TFTP storage, which you can use for disaster recovery and storing device configurations and logs off-line (such as for syslog and Wireshark packet analysis). Quickly store local copies of your router and switch configurations and backup configurations, and roll back to an earlier configuration if necessary.

    What's more, it includes IPSec High Availability VPN gateway software, which enables you to set up console connections within a secure IPSec VPN network. If there's a network outage, the Advanced Console Server will automatically reconnect the VPN using a modem link or broadband failover route.

    This means you can set up 'round-the-clock access to vital data center systems—without sacrificing security, flexibility, and interoperability with your current server environment. Use it as a gateway to remotely access servers, virtual servers, service processors, and similar network IT equipment. You can also monitor and control routers, switches, firewalls, PBX systems, and many other network infrastructure devices.

    And because you can use the console server to manage ports on PDUs and UPSs and, in the process, cut power consumption and reduce utility bills, it's a great addition to any IT department or company wanting to initiate "clean tech" energy conservation. It's a great way to unify power and IT resources while controlling your data centers and networks from anywhere in the world!

    The console server comes with Network UPS Tools for UPS monitoring. It supports complex power architectures typical of many modern data centers and NOCs where you find a mix of UPSs from various manufacturers. Through this interface, you can not only more easily manage and monitor UPS hardware connected to your expensive devices, you can also ensure a safe systems shutdown.
