Secure Serial Port Access and Remote Reboot

Console Server + Power Switch - Secure Serial Port Access + Remote Reboot

WTI CPM-800-1-ECAM Console Server + Power Switch

Serial Console Server + Power Switch

The CPM Series console server + power switch provides system administrators with two vital network management tools in one compact package. Combining secure console port access and remote power control in a single 1U device is the ideal solution for installations where rack space is limited.

The CPM allows you to remotely access multiple console ports using a single secure IP. Administrators can switch power on/off/reboot on specific outlets, receive temperature alarms when user defined thresholds are breached, change configuration parameters and assign user access to ports and plugs.

Unit Management:


Intelligent Port Selection

Each RS232 serial port of the CPM can be individually accessed by number, name, or group via SSH or Telnet sessions. The CPM also allows direct connections using TCP port assignments. Each serial port can be separately configured using simple menu driven commands to set the port password, data rates, flow control and other operating parameters.

The full matrix capability of the CPM allows you to easily connect any two ports on the switch, even when the ports are using different communications settings. Ports can also be connected or disconnected by a third party with supervisor rights, and system managers can swap various RS232 devices between ports at a remote location.


Security and Co-Location

Secure Shell (SSHv2) encryption and address-specific IP security masks prevent unauthorized access to command and configuration functions. The CPM also provides four different levels of user security; the Administrator, Supervisor, User and View Only level. The Administrator level, which is intended for use by system managers and other administrators, provides complete access to all port connection / disconnection functions, operating features and configuration menus, and also allows access to any port on the switch. The User level is ideal for co-location applications, since users are only permitted to view status and connect to the ports allowed by their user name and password.


Capture Buffer

"Buffer Mode" allows individual ports to capture and store incoming data, such as error and status messages received from attached console ports. This "snapshot" of the last data received is stored in memory, and can be viewed, saved or erased by the system operator at any time. Console messages can be stored in the CPM port buffers, and sent to a remote location via SYSLOG, or an SNMP message can be generated to alert administrators when new console messages are received.
