A large broadcasting company deployed the Lantronix SLC 8000 console managers in their data centers to provide a robust infrastructure management solution at each of their geographic sites. Conscious of their need to provide service at all times, the customer was forced to consider a robust and effective cellular out-of-band management solution which would provide an uninterrupted alternative route for control of their equipment.
The customer was particularly worried about access to their key infrastructure and data equipment in the event of a denial of service attack on the Internet.
The console ports of all equipment were already conveniently aggregated by using the Lantronix SLC 8000 console manager which could be used as an efficient gateway to any particular site and its device. It was now just a question of choosing the right complementary solution to allow the engineers and network administrators to remotely access the console manager potentially from anywhere in the world during an unprecedented network outage.
Could Lantronix provide an ideal remote cellular access solution that would give users the ability to securely and remotely access the console manager and hence its connected data center equipment?
In order to meet their customer’s needs, the customer incorporated the Lantronix PremierWave XC cellular unit at each key site as an added solution to each SLC 8000 Advanced Console Manager. Having set up a GSM cellular connection to the main administrator port on the front panel of the SLC 8000 unit provided direct access. Administrators now have Command Line level access for debugging, rebooting any piece of equipment attached to the console manager even in the event of a denial of service attack on their network.
High Performance, GPRS, Linux-Based Application/Device Server that offers Ethernet or GSM/GPRS connectivity for remote access and easy management of machines and equipment over the network and across the Internet.
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.
