The IOLAN SCR1618 Console Server provides data center managers with secure remote console management of any device with an RS232 or Ethernet RJ45 console port. This cost-effective 1U rack solution maintains protocol integrity across Ethernet and adds full IPv4/IPv6 routing capabilities with support for RIP, OSPF, and BGP protocols. An integrated firewall and two-factor authentication enhance security while the powerful multi-core CPU ensures lightning-fast routing and switching. With advanced failover to multiple networks and Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP), the IOLAN SCR is ideal for data center management and out-of-band management of IT assets from anywhere in the world.
Console Management for IT assets
Advanced Network Security, Authentication, and Data Encryption
Network data transmissions and access to remote console admin ports on IT equipment are protected through standard encryption tools such as Secure Shell (SSH) and Secure Sockets Layer (TLS/SSL). By using encryption technologies, an IOLAN SCR Console Server protects sensitive and confidential data before being sent across a corporate Intranet or public Internet. For compatibility with peer encryption devices, all the major encryption ciphers such as AES, 3DES, RC4, RC2, and CAST128 are fully supported.
With multiple concurrent VPN sessions, OpenVPN, and IPSec VPN, robust authentication and encryption of IP packets is provided at the network layer of the OSI model. This is ideal for multi-vendor interoperation within a network, providing flexibility and the ability to match the right solution for a particular application.
High Availability Access
The IOLAN SCR has built-in fault-tolerant capabilities to ensure secure and reliable access for managing important mission-critical equipment. With 18 x Routing / Switching Ethernet interfaces, the IOLAN SCR provides multiple redundant network paths to ensure that console management access is available even if part of the network is down. The dual AC power supply ensures that console management is available even if the primary AC power source fails.
Protection against electrostatic discharges and power surges is provided with robust 15Kv ESD protection circuitry on each console port.
