ATEN launches a new generation of Serial Console Servers, the SN91xxCO Series (SN9108CO / SN9116CO). With single power / LAN in the SN91xxCO models, they integrate cutting edge technologies to provide convenient installation, secure serial device access, easy management and comprehensive control for data centers.
The SN91xxCO Series 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 even more time-saving IT infrastructure deployment. In addition, the SN91xxCO models support online detection of connected serial devices (including terminal blocks) for device status monitoring. A notification email alert will be sent to the administrator when connected devices are offline.
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 SN91xxCO serial console servers assure administrators the security for easy and high-level access. For instance, access rights and privileges can be applied to 8/16 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 SN91xxCO Series is 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 its comprehensive features, the SN91xxCO Series helps 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, ensuring the highest availability for data center services.
