Lantronix Secure Console Servers provide unlimited access to remote network and telecom equipment, helping you maintain optimum system performance and availability.

Using your existing IP network or a single modem connection, Secure Console Servers provide remote access to data and voice equipment. All that is required is an available console or serial port (RS-232, RS-422, RS-485) on your equipment. Secure Console Servers are a flexible and powerful tool to manage devices such as: hubs, switches, routers, servers, UPS systems, PBX systems, and telecom switches.

Using In-Band management, you can manage your equipment over the network, from virtually any place you have access, using familiar tools like Telnet or Secure Shell (SSH).

Even if the network is down, Secure Console Servers have an Out-of-Band management feature that allows dial-in access through a modem connection. Where multiple pieces of equipment are installed, modem sharing allows you to realize a significant savings in installation and monthly operating costs.

Secure Console Servers ensure the integrity of your equipment and data through several measures. Authentication limits access to authorized users only, using usernames and passwords, modem dial-back, PAP/CHAP, Radius, Kerberos and SecurID. Authorization restricts access to equipment and services, based on stored user profiles. Secure Shell (SSH) safeguards login passwords and in-transit data through strong encryption.

Managing remote equipment can be a challenge, especially when system configurations vary from location to location. For quick and direct access to your equipment, Lantronix Secure Console Servers feature a configurable menuing system. This system allows remote equipment to be selected using your own descriptions. For example, menus could be organized by equipment location and name. Menus can also be configured specifically for each user, limiting access to specific equipment.

Event management features help you locate the source of equipment problems and diagnose them quickly. Each serial port can be independently configured to store console messages from attached equipment, and to alert a network manager of a potential problem by e-mail over the network or through an alternate modem connection. Upon receiving notification, network managers can review the stored console messages to determine the cause of the problem.

Secure Console Servers are available with 1 (SCS100), 2 (SCS200) or 4 (SCS400) high-speed serial ports and a 10/100 Mbps (10Base-T, 100Base-TX) Ethernet interface.s. Setup can be accomplished through a serial port, by using Telnet or with the included cross-platform EZWebCon™ configuration utility.

When you need to remotely monitor and manage your network and telecom equipment, look to Lantronix for a complete Console Management Solution - connecting you with your information.
