Easily and affordably set up efficient, secure remote monitoring and management of infrastructure devices with the 8-Port Secure Serial Server with Cisco Pinout from Black Box. As a remote infrastructure management (RIM) gateway, the device gives you visibility and control of your network and its physical environment for reliable 24/7 uptime. It provides serial console-port connectivity and supports environmental monitoring, power management, and monitoring, plus remote site storage of off-line logs.
This console server device gives you dependable console port access in a secure platform that fits the budget of small to medium-size businesses and cash-strapped educational, healthcare, and government institutions. It provides access to equipment without sacrificing security, flexibility, and interoperability with your current IT environment. With it, you can monitor, access, and control all the infrastructure at your local or remote site, whether they are security cameras, power supplies, sensors, or other I/O devices. It also enables you to manage embedded service processors. The 8-Port Secure Serial Server with Cisco Pinout features native IPMI 1.5 and 2.0 (RMCP/RMCP+) support for BMC and service processor access and control, plus secure SOL (Serial over LAN) access to BIOS, EMS, and ACS data. Via a single point of access, you can reach PMI, ILO, and LOM processors, as well as access KVM built into service processors, such as Dell DRAC and RSA. This way, you can remotely cycle power and reboot computers, even when their operating system is unresponsive.
The 8-Port Secure Serial Server with Cisco Pinout supports extensive environmental monitoring, alert, and power event-notification functions. Alerts can be sent via e-mail, SMS, and SNMP traps. Also, the console server supports graceful shutdowns, ping detect reboots, and running of custom scripts when alerts are triggered. Because you can use the console server to manage ports on PDUs, UPSs, and environmental monitoring devices - and, in the process, cut power consumption, reduce utility bills, and lessen environmental impact - it is a great addition to any IT department or company wanting to initiate "clean tech" energy conservation. The console server is also ideal for service providers who need access to client-side devices, even those located behind firewalls.
And, ultra reliable, the 8-Port Secure Serial Server with Cisco Pinout supports Ethernet bonding and auto-failover via its two Ethernet 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX connections. It detects any communications failure on the primary port and switches to the second RJ-45 connection automatically. It also features 1500-VAC isolation and ESD protection on the Ethernet ports.
