Console Servers

Remotely control critical equipment with from anywhere serial ports.

Ensure maximum uptime with out-of-band management console servers. Console servers are also sometimes known as terminal servers. Console servers give network managers a single-point-of control to remotely monitor, manage, and troubleshoot critical IT infrastructure from anywhere in the world. Save time, money and labor where it counts the most. Console server technology will enable you to grow your business, since you and your team will have quick access to necessary equipment from far away.

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. Essential troubleshooting no longer has to be at the mercy of travel. Serial ports enable your team to take control of equipment from almost anywhere.
