The ACS 5000 Console Server Series meets the remote management needs of medium to large data centers. The series is available in 4, 8, 16, 32 and 48 ports with a single AC power supply.
Security features such as SSH v2, RADIUS authentication, IP filtering and user access lists per port allow data center managers and system administrators to manage the network and servers remotely with greater control and reliability.
Console management features such as data buffering, direct access methods to the serial ports (TCP port and server name) and event notification improve monitoring capabilities, which allow for faster problem-solving and higher network uptime.
