Lantronix Inc., provider of secure data access and management solutions for the industrial Internet of Things (IoT), will showcase a new software release and updates to its IT Management solutions at Cisco Live Europe (Booth E34) in Barcelona, Spain, next week.
Lantronix’s IT Management solutions, including the modular SLC 8000 advanced console manager and SLB remote branch office manager, are designed to reduce deployment and management complexity and costs. The solutions provide secure out-of-band management to enable IT personnel of any size enterprise to remotely monitor, manage and troubleshoot equipment from anywhere, while maintaining low-level access to their gear even during network outages via secondary dial-up or cellular connections.
Lantronix SLC 8000 is an advanced modular console manager that provides secure access to IT equipment with RS-232 and USB console, while minimizing deployment headaches and time.
The new software release for the Lantronix SLC 8000 provides real-time network performance monitoring with its seamless monitoring of network performance data allowing IT and data center managers to troubleshoot network slow-downs using IP SLA protocol. It delivers expanded automation and monitoring through auto-detection of attached device port names eliminating manual configuration and the resulting configuration errors.
It also delivers enhanced security through expanded support for SHA-2 across multiple protocols and expanded TACACS+ support for groups, It also delivers fail-over support including enhanced cellular fail-over and fail-back support.
The modular console server offers both RJ45 and USB connectivity with user swappable I/O modules allowing for easy upgrades and scalability to enables custom “mix-and-match” configurations with USB and RS-232 modules; integrated dual 1 Gb Ethernet or dual 1 Gb SFP interfaces; HTML5 support for Java-free web based telnet/SSH remote access to console ports that is browser independent. It also provides multiple layers of out-of-band access with optional dial-up and cellular technologies; reduces operating costs and security risks by eliminating the need for on-site interventions; simplifies service deployments and balances capital and operating expenditure with its modular design; and minimizes cable clutter with software-reversible device port pins.
The server also increases testing productivity and efficiency as a DUT (device under test) aggregation tool; protects management interfaces with authentication and FIPS 140-2 compliant encryption; and delivers built-in support for environmental sensors and dry contact access control devices
“With mission-critical devices increasingly connected to the cloud and essential data processed or analyzed closer to the edge, the need for remote management of unmanned critical assets is increasing like never before,” said Shahram Mehraban, Lantronix’s vice president of marketing. “Lantronix has established a reputation for delivering state-of-the-art solutions that maximize the uptime of mission critical data center, edge node, and remote office assets, and these latest enhancements further add to our differentiation in this category.”
