Remote Network Management for Applications that are Short on Rack Space

Remote power control and remote console port access are two vital tools for network administrators. With these tools, administrators can initiate power reboot cycles, take devices out of service, and access command functions on remote network devices without actually traveling to the equipment site in person. Obviously, remote power control and command access are very valuable tools … but what if your application doesn’t provide room for both a console server and a switched PDU?

WTI console + power hybrid products are designed specifically for applications where rack space is in short supply. By combining the capabilities of a console server and a switched PDU in one compact package, our RSM-8R4-DCM series and DCM series hybrid products are idea for applications such as kiosks, ATMs, branch offices, retail stores and other situations where there just isn’t enough room for two additional devices.

RSM-8R4-DCM console + power hybrids include all of the powerful features found in our console server and switched PDU products in one small enclosure that can either be rack mounted or mounted on a DIN rail or wall. RSM-8R4-DCM series units can either be accessed via network or dial-up and include eight RJ45 serial console ports and four 120 or 240 VAC outlets for power control functions.

Our DCM series console + power hybrids also provide remote console port access and power control capabilities, but are specifically designed for dial-up applications that don’t need network access. DCM units are particularly well-suited for situations where network connection is not available, and network administrators need access to remote management capabilities via dial-up or satellite modem.

Both the RSM-8R4-DCM series and the DCM series come in the same sized, compact enclosure and are compatible with our 19″ rack mount adapters and DIN rail mount kits. These products are ideal for small businesses that don’t have enough space to devote an entire room for network equipment racks, or any other network application where rack space is scarce or unavailable.
