Monday, November 21st, 2011

The power and reboot control capabilities provided by a remote reboot unit enable network administrators to quickly deal with problems at off-site network equipment cabinets without the expense of a service call and without unnecessary delays while the service team is en route to the remote site. Remote power and reboot control are obviously important functions, but in addition to the reboot functions provided by a basic remote reboot product, some remote reboot units also provide additional capabilities that can help administrators to be kept better informed regarding conditions at the remote network equipment site.


A Console Terminal Server with Event Logging Improves Remote Network Management

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

In many remote network management applications, a console terminal server does more than merely providing remote access to console port command functions. Often, the console terminal server also helps network administrators to keep better track of events and conditions at remote sites without the need to constantly send technicians out to check on the site in person. In addition to providing out of band access to remote network elements, a console terminal server can also monitor and log power interruptions, user activity, temperature trends, alarm events and other significant data concerning a remote network site that can help to give administrators a broader perspective of conditions and trends at a remote site in order to assist in planning for future needs and contingencies.
