The SN Series of Serial Console Servers integrates cutting edge technology to provide secure serial device access and management for data centers. Available in 16 port models, the Serial Console Servers offer both in-band and out-of-band remote serial console access to servers and network devices via a direct Telnet/SSH client and applet viewer. SN Serial Console Servers work in tandem with ATEN’s Power Over the NET™ remote power management systems. Both can be utilized through ATEN’s CC2000 software to provide centralized serial device access and integrated power management. With its comprehensive features, the SN Series of Serial Console Servers help to maximize IT productivity, increase scalability and reduce operational costs with easy remote management of serial devices.

ATEN 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. The SN Series offers multiple operational modes that include Real COM Port, TCP Server/Client, UDP Server/Client, Serial Tunnel and Virtual Modem. Our Serial Console Servers help transform the capabilities of serial devices by taking advantage of network access to configure and manage control of these devices from anywhere in the world via the Internet.

The ATEN Serial Console Server is a secure remote access and control solution for any serial device. Access rights and privileges can be applied to 16 individual serial ports while consolidated password authentication simplifies management. For security, data encryption is provided to ensure information and control is always protected. Logging and alerting of system events helps to quickly resolve issues and mitigate risks. Enhanced security functions are integrated to ensure the compliance of internal security mandates. The Serial Console Server’s ease of use, vast accessibility and manageability of serial devices and servers enable a business to quickly integrate remote control of serial devices to consolidate operations and run facilities more effectively.

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.
