The Advantages of a Remote Console Server with Monitoring and Alarm Features

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

One of the most common challenges to those who manage remote network equipment sites, is the need to know exactly what’s going on at those remote sites. If an equipment rack is located just down the hall, then checking environmental conditions and communication status is obviously easy, but if that equipment rack is located hundreds or even thousands of miles away, then how can a network administrator know when rack temperatures are too high or power conditions are unstable? A remote console server provides a simple solution to this challenge; in addition to providing out of band access to console port command functions on remote devices, a full-featured remote console server can also help to track events and conditions at remote network equipment sites.
