Secure Data Center & IT Infrastructure Manager
Out of Band Network Access
A Console Server, enables secure remote console management of any device with a serial or USB console port, including Cisco routers, switches and firewalls, Servers, PBXs and more. It is a single hardware solution that provides a secure alternate route to monitor IT, networking, security and power devices from multiple vendors. While software management tools can be used for performance monitoring, and some remote troubleshooting, they only work when the network is up. A Console Server, commonly used as an Out-of-Band Management Solution, ensures that on-site infrastructure is accessible, even during system or network outages. They can be used to reconfigure, reboot and reimage remotely across the internet or WANs. Disruption and downtime are minimized by providing better visibility of the physical environment and the physical status of equipment. This ensure business continuity through improved uptime and efficiencies.
