Telnet and Dial-Up Console/AUX Port Switches

CMS Series Console Port Management Switches provide secure, in-band and/or out-of-band access to RS232 console ports and maintenance ports on UNIX servers, routers, and other network equipment. System Administrators can access remote devices in order to change configuration parameters, connect users to restricted ports, collect buffered data, and perform a variety of other administrative tasks. The CMS is ideal for colocation applications; two different password security levels protect access to restricted ports and configuration commands. Users are allowed to connect to only the ports provided by their passwords, while supervisors are allowed to connect to any port or invoke configuration commands. In addition to the convenient features found on our other CMS units, the CMS-32 also includes Syslog Reporting and SNMP capability. The CMS is available in 32, 16 and 8 port Models.
