Console Servers

Remotely control critical equipment with serial ports.

Ensure maximum uptime with out-of-band management console servers, sometimes called terminal servers. They give network managers a single-point-of control to remotely monitor, manage, and troubleshoot critical IT infrastructure from anywhere in the world.

Console servers have in-band data network control and out-of-band management for backdoor control. If a piece of equipment fails, IT administrators can take care of it from the office, home, or the road via modems, cellular wireless connections, or the Internet.

Backdoor management for business continuity:

  • Control switches, routers, servers, and devices with serial ports.
  • Connect to industrial RS-232/422/485 devices, such as PLCs.
  • Reconfigure, reboot, or reimage equipment.
  • Perform disaster recovery after power outages.

Multiple industries, multiple applications:

  • Industrial and process control applications.
  • Oil/gas, wastewater, power, and utilities.
  • Environmental monitoring in the field.
  • Military applications.
  • Distributed, remote-office networks.

Solve the challenge of distributed sites:

  • Centralize serial-port management.
  • Reduce reliance on distant IT staff.
  • Eliminate travel expenses.
  • Enforce enterprise-grade security.
