Future Proof Your Secure Out-Of-Band Management Solution
The Lantronix SLC 8000 advanced console manager is the industry’s first modular console server that provides secure remote access to IT equipment, while reducing deployment costs and time.
Did You Know?
Like modern laptops and computing devices, modern IT equipment vendors are providing USB console ports as an extension or a replacement of RS-232. The Lantronix SLC 8000 allows you to make that transition at your own pace.
Centrally Monitor, Manage, and Troubleshoot
Designed for system administrators, quality and test engineers, the SLC 8000 provides easy, secure administration and management of IT equipment from anywhere and at any time. Users can access the SLC 8000 device ports via Telnet/SSH, or a web browser-based console client without any proprietary software. Any IT asset that provides console or serial port management services can be managed remotely and locally with the same interface and capabilities. The SLC 8000 enables users to leverage the command line interface of most IT equipment for reconfiguring, rebooting and reloading firmware from a single point of contact. This can be done over an in-band network with dual Gigabit Ethernet connections for both public and management networks, or through out-of-band connections including dial-up (optional internal modem, sold separately) and cellular connectivity (PremierWave® XC HSPA+ intelligent gateway, sold separately). Users can securely access and control a wide variety of IT and network equipment, including Linux, Unix or Windows® servers, routers, switches, firewalls, PBXs, UPSs, and even building access devices through their serial ports.
The modular design of SLC 8000 allows users to keep the main unit and simply add or swap modules to expand the number of device ports, upgrade from a single power supply to dual, and easily introduce new serial interfaces such as USB to support a combination of existing and new IT equipment that are connected. This reduces the time required to develop and deploy new services, and this flexibility minimizes capital expenditures while offering easy scalability and upgrades.
Protecting IT resources is a top priority. The SLC 8000 provides security features such as SSL and SSH for data encryption in addition to remote authentication for integration with other systems already in place. For added protection, the SLC 8000 also includes firewall features to reject connection attempts or block ports and has NIST-certified AES encryption. The SLC 8000 also supports FIPS 140-2 certified mode for government and military applications.
