Atlantik Systeme presents the SLC 8000 from Lantronix

08. September 2016 | Planegg

Atlantik Systeme presents industries first modular console server for RS232 and USB ports. The Lantronix SLC 8000 is designed to reduce deployment and management costs and time by providing secure, centralized out-of-band management to most IT equipment, the new SLC 8000 can be expanded from eight to 48 ports.

In a typical deployment, each port would manage one piece of IT equipment such as a switch, router, or server.  This modular design makes the SLC 8000 the first of its kind, allowing users to simply add or swap modules to expand device port density and power supply, or introduce new interfaces such as USB.  Users can access the SLC 8000 device ports via Telnet/SSH, or a web browser-based console client without any proprietary software.

Any IT asset that provides console or serial port management services can be managed remotely and locally with the same interface and capabilities. The SLC 8000 enables users to leverage the command line interface of most IT equipment for reconfiguring, rebooting and reloading firmware from a single point of contact. This can be done over an in-band network with dual Gigabit Ethernet connections for both public and management networks, or through out-of-band connections including dial-up (optional internal modem, sold separately) and cellular connectivity (PremierWave® XC HSPA+ intelligent gateway, sold separately). The users can securely access and control a wide variety of IT and network equipment, including Linux, Unix or Windows® servers, routers, switches, firewalls, PBXs, UPSs, and even building access devices through their serial ports.

The modular design of SLC 8000 allows users to keep the main unit and simply add or swap modules to expand the number of device ports, upgrade from a single power supply to dual, and easily introduce new serial interfaces such as USB to support a combination of existing and new IT equipment that are connected. This reduces the time required to develop and deploy new services, and this flexibility minimizes capital expenditures while offering easy scalability and upgrades. 

Protecting IT resources is a top priority. The SLC 8000 provides security features such as SSL and SSH for data encryption in addition to remote authentication for integration with other systems already in place. For added protection, the SLC 8000 also includes firewall features to reject connection attempts or block ports and has NIST-certified AES encryption.  

IT equipment downtime can significantly impact revenue, customer satisfaction, and brand loyalty”, said Ottmar Flach, General Manager of Atlantik Systeme GmbH. “The new Lantronix SLC 8000 was clearly designed with the customer’s use case and bottom line in mind – delivering a combination of modularity, high-level security and affordability that we believe will provide a strong return on investment and allow users to keep the focus on their business. With the explosive growth of social networking, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things, ensuring uptime and optimization of IT equipment is now more critical than ever to data centers and enterprises of all sizes, locations and markets”, added Ottmar Flach.
