Console Servers - the Lifeline for IT Administrators
A company network should be able to function 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. It is necessary to maintain the operational status of network equipment in a robust security environment, which includes servers and routers, to ensure secure and stable network performance.
Since SmartCS was released in 2006, it has been adopted by the majority of our customers. It houses serial console ports of network equipment including routers, switches and servers. With SmartCS, IT administrator can more easily build network management to function as a "lifeline". Even in instances when network operations are experiencing problems, the network administrator is still able to access network equipment via SmartCS to keep the company network under control.
