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.
Today, many leading IT equipment manufacturers (like Cisco, Brocade, Dell, HPE and others) are moving towards launching USB-only based solutions. The Lantronix SLC 8000 is the industry solution that can support up to 48 high-density USB ports and is compatible with multiple manufacturers’ USB solutions.
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 Lantronix SLC 8000 advanced console manager’s unique modular chassis allows for easy and cost-effective field upgrades with user-swappable 16 port USB and RS-232 modules — helping you protect your legacy equipment investment and transition to newer USB solutions at your own pace. Need to switch from serial to USB (or support a combination of both)? Expand the number of ports on your console manager (up to 48)? Change from single to dual power supply? All of these are possible with the modular design of SLC 8000. The : with SLC 8000, you have the ability to more easily deploy and upgrade new services and equipment, minimize capital expenditures.
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.
The Lantronix delivers mission-critical LTE connectivity as a failover solution to protect your data center and branch office out-of-band management infrastructure against landline failure. With new automatic fail-over functionality built into your SLB Branch Office Manager, deployment of a secondary enterprise network connection is simple and quick, and automatic fail-over from a land-line network outage is seamless.
