The Lantronix® SLC™ 8000 advanced console manager provides real time visibility and control over critical IT and communications equipment (network, server, storage, security, power and more) in data center and remote locations securely and quickly minimizing costly downtime and disruptions to operations. The SLC 8000 delivers intelligent out-of-band management features and capabilities even during network outages, while allowing users to create custom combinations of RS-232 (serial) and USB console modules to maintain control over legacy and new systems without costly 'Rip-and-Replace' activities.

Centrally Manage Your IT Infrastructure

Designed for system administrators, quality and test engineers, the SLC 8000 provides easy, secure administration and management of IT equipment from anywhere and at any time. 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. The SLC 8000 enables users to leverage the command line interface for reconfiguring, rebooting and reloading firmware from a single point of contact. This can be done over an in-band network for both public and management networks, or via out-of-band connections including optional dial-up and cellular gateway. The users can securely access and control a wide variety of network, server, and power infrastructure in data centers and distributed sites.

SLC 8000 is Modular So You Can Be Flexible

The modular design of SLC 8000 enables users to keep 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.

Maintain Enhanced Security

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. The SLC 8000 also supports FIPS 140-2 certified mode for government and military applications.
