A Power Control and Console Access Solution for Applications where Rack Space is Tight

If you’re faced with the task of maintaining multiple, far-flung network installations, then you already know that remote console port access and remote power reboot control are both extremely valuable tools for dealing with problems at far away branch offices and equipment closets. But what if your network equipment rack doesn’t have enough free rack space to allow both a console server and a switched PDU? Does that mean that you have to choose between console access and reboot control? Of course not; WTI’s Power + Console Hybrid products provide both remote console access and remote reboot capabilities in one, convenient, 1U product.

Our RSM-8R series products are specifically designed for remote management applications in branch office or equipment closet installations. RSM-8R Power + Console Hybrids provide both secure, remote access to console ports on routers, servers and firewalls, and also remote reboot and power control capabilities, without sacrificing rack space that you need for other equipment. This provides a single, compact, 1U solution for out of band management, in environments where both rack space and budget are often prohibitively tight.

The RSM-8R allows network administrators to access multiple remote network devices via a single, secure IP in order to switch power on or off, initiate a reboot cycle, or login to console ports in order to invoke commands or change configuration parameters … all in one convenient 1U device. In addition, the RSM-8R also allows you to set up alarms to provide notification when rack temperatures rise too high, when excessive invalid access attempts are detected, when power to the rack is lost and when a number of other environment events occur. The RSM-8R can also be configured to automatically reboot or disable outlets when certain user-defined conditions are detected, or according to a user-defined schedule.

RSM-8R Series hybrid power + console units provide the perfect solution for out of band management in applications where rack space is limited; compact size, remote console port access, remote power control and an impressive array of alarm and notification features all work together to allow you to diagnose most problems at remote equipment sites … without even leaving your office!
