Console Servers

Automated Out Of Band Access With Network Incident Remediation

Console Servers

A console server or terminal server is a device that provides remote/out-of-band access to servers and networking devices. Commonly, a console server provides a number of serial ports, which are then connected to the serial ports of other equipment, such as servers, routers or switches. The consoles of the connected devices can then be accessed by connecting to the console server over a serial link such as a modem, wifi, or over a network with terminal emulator software such as telnet or ssh, maintaining survivable connectivity that allows remote users to log in the various consoles without being physically nearby.
