WTI Releases Console Server & Power Management Solution for Remote Enclosures

Milan, Italy, January 28, 2014 –Stand E75, Cisco Live — WTI (www.wti.com), a leading manufacturer of out of band branch office, console server and remote power management solutions, has announced the release of a compact remote management solution designed for network enclosures.

“The RSM-2R4 Console + Power Combo units are new additions to our existing Console + Power Management offering, providing the perfect mix of features to reduce downtime and ensure user availability in secure, remote applications where space is limited,” said Dustin Morrison, WTI Marketing Manager. “The RSM-2R4 combines two powerful troubleshooting tools, remote console access and power reboot control, with the latest security and authentication features in a compact device, designed specifically for remote equipment enclosures.”

When problems arise at remote branch offices, kiosks, ATMs or roadside enclosures, administrators can quickly establish a secure Ethernet connection with the RSM-2R4 in order to access console port command functions, control power switching or initiate reboot cycles at the remote site. Once a secure connection to the RSM-2R4 is established, NOC personnel can communicate with connected devices to invoke troubleshooting commands or change configuration parameters or simply reboot unresponsive equipment in order to restore vital services in a fraction of the time that would be required for a traditional service call.

The RSM-2R4 complements existing security measures by helping to maximize uptime at remote sites and ensuring that communication with remote devices is safe from unauthorized access. The latest security and authentication protocols work together with powerful encryption technologies to make certain that all communication with the RSM-2R4 remains confidential and can only be interpreted by authorized support personnel.

The RSM-2R4 includes the following features for secure and simplified out-of-band management:

  • Secure, Authenticated, Encrypted Access to Remote Console Port Command and Power Reboot Functions
  • Two Serial Console Ports plus Four Switched AC Outlets
  • IP & SNMP Control
  • Ping Response Monitoring
  • Port Access and User Activity Logging

For nearly 50 years, WTI has been a leading innovator in the design and manufacture of remote console management and power control tools for enterprise data centers, remote network equipment sites and other out-of-band management applications. WTI products are designed and manufactured in Irvine, California with partner locations in over 20 countries worldwide.
