Access All Your Serial and Network Devices from Anywhere in the World at Any Time
This USB console server provides secure in-band (primary network) and out-of-band (alternate channel) remote access to serial- and network-connected routers, network switches, firewalls, PBX systems, UPS systems, PDUs and other devices. It offers reliable network connectivity with dual Gigabit primary and failover Ethernet ports, dual SFP ports for fiber optic network connections, and dual power supplies. You can use it in a wide variety of applications, including wiring closets, branch offices, kiosks, point-of-sale and other remote sites where a quick identification and resolution of network issues is imperative. You’ll be able to manage a critical equipment outage quickly and remotely without making a costly and time-consuming physical visit to the site.
Simple and Flexible Accessibility
The 16 RJ45 console ports are configured to use standard Cat5e/6 patch cable when connecting to Cisco devices. They integrate with industry-standard directory servers using TACACS+, RADIUS, LDAP and Kerberos authentication. Provides 16 Gb of internal NAND flash memory, which can be used for log storage and file storage, and is expandable with an SD card.
Connect the Built-In V.92 Modem for Out-of-Band (OOB) Access
For OOB access, connect an RJ11 cable between the front-facing RJ11 port and a functioning landline port to allow the V.92 modem to dial out.
Wi-Fi Diversity Antenna Included
The 16-port serial console server includes Wi-Fi, which supports either Client or WAP mode. Just attach the included 2.4 GHz SMA Wi-Fi diversity antenna to the console server’s main Wi-Fi port. For a stronger wireless signal, connect a second antenna (not included) to the server’s auxiliary Wi-Fi port.
Each gateway can port forward to an unlimited number of locally networked hosts (computers, routers). This rack console also includes a built-in stateful firewall and embedded DHCP server to host a separate management LAN for critical traffic.
The Utmost in Security to Keep Your Sensitive Data Private
The B098-016 supports the following security features and standards: PCI DSS 3.2, FIPS 140-2, SSL and SSH, stateful firewall, OpenVPN and IPSec VPN support. The embedded FIPS 140-2 OpenSSL cryptographic module is validated to meet FIPS 140-2 standards and has received Certificate #2473.
PowerMan PDU and UPS Support
This USB console server uses PowerMan for PDU and RPC management and Network UPS Tools for UPS system monitoring and management. It provides support for Tripp Lite and other power products, so you can remotely manage power to your connected equipment.
Two USB 2.0 console ports allow connection to newer devices with USB console ports, such as Tripp Lite’s wide variety of PDUs and UPS systems with WEBCARDLX or other LX Platform remote management cards.
Compact Design for Convenient Mounting
The heavy-duty steel housing comes with mounting brackets for 1U installation in an EIA-standard 19-inch rack. Its fanless form factor also allows desktop deployment on included rubber feet that help prevent the unit from sliding.
TAA-Compliant for GSA Schedule Purchases
The B098-016 is compliant with the Federal Trade Agreements Act (TAA), which makes it eligible for GSA (General Services Administration) Schedule and other federal procurement contracts.
