The serial console server is used to connect serial devices to the Ethernet network to meet the needs of demanding applications in industrial control, data acquisition, environment monitoring, and remote facility and equipment management. It offers versatile operation modes including Real COM Port, TCP Server/ Client, UDP Server/Client, Serial Tunnel and Virtual Modem. It helps transform the capabilities of legacy serial devices to take advantage of the TCP/IP network to allow remote access, configuration, and management of the serial devices from anywhere in the world over the Internet.
SN series is a complete secure remote access and control solution. Access rights and privilege control can be applied to individual ports. Consolidated authentication simplifies password management. Data encryption is provided. Logging and alerting helps speed resolution of issues and mitigates risk. Enhanced security functions ensure the compliance of internal security mandates. The ease of use, accessibility and manageability of the SN series serial console servers enables a quick response to changing demands and helps meet ultimate business goals.
The SN series offers out-of-band (OOB) management that enables IT administrators to manage network devices (e.g. router, switch, UPS) in server rooms via management networks that are separate from the main/production networks. So if there’s difficulty in accessing the network devices through the production network, the administrators can still access them via the console server. The console server offers several out-of-band access methods, such as a direct console connection from a local computer, a USB console connection from a laptop, a PSTN connection via modem, or a dedicated management network connection via the Ethernet (LAN) port.
The SN series of serial console servers save you time and money by allowing administrators to manage their data centers from practically anywhere – minimizing travel and MTTR (Mean Time to Repair) costs, ensuring the highest availability for data center services possible.
