Remote Access Control for Your Critical Infrastructure

Out of band access control

Whether your critical environment is a server room, test lab, remote site, or data center, CEG has the equipment and accessories you need to meet your remote access, control, and monitoring requirements.

KVM Switches

CEG provides a variety of KVM-over-IP Switches that leverage today’s Ethernet and TCP/IP networks to provide anytime/anywhere remote access, control, and management. Utilizing advanced security and regardless of operating system, KVM-over-IP products allow you to remotely control all your servers – including pre-boot functions such as editing CMOS settings and power cycling your servers.

Serial Console Servers

Serial console servers, also known as terminal servers, provide IT and network administrators secure, serial-over-IP access and control of serial devices — anytime, anywhere.

While KVM is specifically for controlling computers, a console server can access devices with RS-232 serial ports. These are designed to work with “headless” devices such as routers, LAN switches, UNIX and Linux servers, firewalls, power distribution units, uninterruptible power supply systems, and storage systems.

Which Remote Access Solution is Right for You?

K
It depends on what equipment you need to control. In general, the choice between KVM and serial management has to do with how you want to manage the equipment and whether the device has serial or KVM ports. While one may offer all the functions you need, you may need more than one device to handle all your computers and electronics.
