Emerson Network Power > CHINA > Products > By Type > Infrastructure Management > Serial Consoles > Avocent ACS 6000 Advanced Console Server

The ACS 6000 console server series integrates advanced technologies, adaptive services and secure enterprise communications for high-end, large, enterprise data centers. These console servers offer the performance and reliability necessary to efficiently access and manage IT assets such as servers (UNIX, Linux and Solaris), routers, switches, public branch exchange (PBX) telecommunications equipment (DSU/CSU) and serial power devices.

The high-performance architecture of the ACS 6000 console server series offers advanced hardware and software features to meet the demanding requirements of data center management applications. The series features a high-speed processor platform with dual gigabit-Ethernet ports for redundancy, optional built-in modem and two 16- and 32-bit PC card options. Other benefits include an internal temperature sensor for device-level monitoring and configurable pin-outs for serial ports.
