48-Port Serial Console Server with Dual Power / SFP

MSRP: Quote Upon Request
  • Secure in-band, out-of-band remote serial console and USB console access
  • Auto-sensing DTE/DCE feature supports a direct connection to Cisco network switches
  • Dual power supplies and SFP slots allow fail control
  • Sensor ports for environmental monitoring

ATEN SN11xxCO Series (SN1116CO / SN1132CO / SN1148CO) serial console server provides IT and network administrators secure, out-of-band access to serial devices located at data centers or remote sites (such as network switches allowing console operation using RS-232 and USB console1). With dual power / SFP in the SN11xxCO models, all of them integrate cutting edge technologies to provide convenient installation, secure serial device access, easy management and comprehensive control for data centers.

All series of serial console server features Cisco pin-outs and auto-sensing DTE / DCE function, providing a direct connection to Cisco network switches (and other compatible devices) without rollover cables for more time-saving IT infrastructure deployment. In addition, it support online detection of connected serial devices (including terminal blocks) for device status monitoring. An e-mail notification will be sent to the administrator when connected devices are offline. With dual Ethernet ports and power supplies (AC), the SN11xxCO supports power redundancy as well as failover, or dual IP addresses access, ensuring 24 / 7 availability of access to serial devices. A DC power option is also available for each of the SN11xxCO model for more flexible implementation2.

The SN11xxCO Series supports environmental monitoring through its sensor ports, remaining vigilant around the clock to detect any abnormal conditions. It offers audited and controlled door access using a cabinet lock through its relay port, enhancing security measures. All of the serial console servers can be utilized through ATEN’s CC2000 software to provide centralized serial device access and integrated power management.

Available in 16-, 32- and 48-port models, the SN11xxCO serial console servers offer both in-band and out-of-band (OOB) remote serial console and USB console access to servers and network devices via a direct Telnet / SSH client, Java viewer and WebClient. The OOB management enables IT administrators to manage network devices (e.g. router, switch, UPS) in server rooms using management networks that are separated from the main / production networks. Where access difficulty occurs in the production network, the administrators can still access them via the console server. The serial console servers offer out-of-band access methods such as direct console connection from a local computer, USB console connection from a laptop, or hybrid network connection via the dual SFP (one connected to the production network and the other connected to the management network).

Implemented with various security technologies such as TLS 1.2 data encryption, RSA 2048-bit certificates,configurable user permissions for port access and control, local / remote / third-party authentication and authorization, IP / MAC address filter, and FIPS 140-2 certified cryptography, the SN11xxCO serial console servers assure administrators the security for easy and high-level access. For instance, access rights and privileges can be applied to 16 / 32 / 48 serial ports individually. Data encryption is provided to ensure that information and control are always protected. Logging and alerting of system events help to quickly resolve issues and mitigate risks.While secured by the above examples, the consolidated password authentication simplifies management.

The serial console servers are used to connect serial devices to an Ethernet network to allow access and control of demanding applications that manage industrial control, data acquisition, environment monitoring, remote facility operations and equipment management. Multiple operational modes are available to administrators including Console Management, Console Management Direct, Real COM Port, TCP Server / Client, UDP Server / Client, and Virtual Modem.

With their comprehensive features, the SN11xxCO Series help to maximize IT productivity, increase scalability, as well as reduce installation and operational costs with easy and secure remote management of serial devices. The 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, and ensuring the highest availability for data center services.
