Lantronix EMG - Edge Management Gateway New

A Small Form Factor Out-Of-Band Solution

The Lantronix® EMG™ - Edge Management Gateway is the perfect edge solution for branch offices, remote locations, retail stores or anywhere an offsite network device gateway is needed and space is limited.

Lights Out Management for Branch Offices & Remote Locations

Benefits You Can Depend On

Lights Out Management (LOM)– is the ability for a system administrator to connect, monitor, manage and repair servers by remote control. Lantronix enables LOM in all of its Out-of-Band Solutions. The new EMG8500 offers remote access so onsite
personnel are not needed while offering easy access to minimize system downtimes.

Field Replaceable Units (FRU’s) – the industry’s first modular designed console manager offering users the ability to reduce the time required to develop and deploy new services. Both RJ45 serial and/or USB device ports can be added to existing and new infrastructure equipment.

ConsoleFlow™ Software – helps to reduce downtime. See why our centralized management software won the Interop 2019 Special Prize with a free trial.

Overview for Lantronix EMG

Improve Business Continuity

The EMG ™ Edge Management Gateway is fully integrated into our range of out-of-band scalable solutions. With its modular design, the EMG™ enables users to place the product where it is most effective, alongside critical infrastructure in data centers, branch
offices and remote sites. This solution delivers remote troubleshooting, resilience, and remediation to improve uptime and efficiency of networks to keep businesses running smoothly.

Quick Recovery from Downtimes

An integrated automatic fail-over/fail-back mechanism allows users to connect to their network equipment even when the primary network connection is congested or unresponsive. The EMG can fail-over to a cellular 4G/LTE connection where all global carriers
are supported with services such as Private APN, VPN access, public, and private IP addressing.Network Performance Monitoring with support of IPSLA simulation traffic can ensure continuous and reliable network communication and help mitigate Lights Out scenarios.

Cost-Effective Secure Connectivity – Anytime, Anywhere

The EMG provides easy and secure administration and management of IT equipment from anywhere, at any time. Users can access the EMG 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. The EMG includes firewall features to reject or block unauthorized connection attempts. The EMG also has NIST-certified AES encryption.

Easy Centralized Management – ConsoleFlow™

ConsoleFlow™ is Lantronix’s on-premise and cloud-based management platform for all deployed Lantronix edge management gateways and connected IT equipment. It offers a single pane of glass for centralized management and automated monitoring with real-time notifications.
