Ensure network uptime and business continuity with console servers. Console servers work with your network equipment, such as switches, routers, and servers that have RS-232 console ports for out-of-band management. They are often connected to a management network that’s separate from the data network. They can also be set up for out-of-band management using cellular wireless, POTs modems, Ethernet LAN/WAN, or an internet connection.
Commercial console servers are ideal for organizations with multiple remote sites and branch offices but with few or no on-site staff available to resolve problems. With console servers, problems can be monitored from headquarters.
