Fujitsu Adds IP Serial Console Switch for Remote Device Management

December 12, 2006

With increasing corporate globalisation prompting the need for remote management capability, Fujitsu Europe today added a software-free, IP-Serial console switch/1-port converter to its SERVIS™ system product line. This new device expands Fujitsu's existing line of KVM switches, console drawers and Cat5 extenders for flexible network connectivity solutions.

Using a Character User Interface, the new FX-3001SR series provides one administrator and up to four registered users with secure access to remote servers and serial-based peripherals through a local or remote IP network using a 10/100BASE-TX or serial connection. Applications include headless servers, routers, LAN switches, process controls, scanners, and power supply management in various industries such as enterprises, medical and healthcare facilities, industrial factories, and retail establishments.

The FX-3001SR IP-serial console switch/1-port converter supports all major server platforms as well as SSH, Telnet and IPv4 clients. Transmitted data is encrypted and user access is authenticated by user name and password.

The 1U device measures 110(W) x 114(D) x 32(H)mm and is RoHS compliant. It supports auto negotiation and serial-to-LAN interface conversion. A Compact Flash model for data logging is also available in the series.

Available immediately, the SERVISTM FX-3001SR series IP serial console switch/1-port converter (part number NC14008-B027RS R) has a suggested resale price of £299 RRP ex VAT. Discounts are available for OEM quantity purchases.
