Avocent ACS8000 Cellular Module Supports Vertiv Infrastructure & Third-party Devices
Earlier this month, Vertiv unveiled the latest in IT management technology with the Avocent ACS8000 advanced console server with cellular capabilities. This cellular addition to the ACS8000 family ensures seamless, integrated management of Vertiv and third-party equipment even when no wired network is available.
With shelter-in-place being enforced across the globe, this launch is especially relevant and timely. As more employees access data from remote locations and home offices, secure remote visibility and control are required for fully functioning and optimized networks. Healthcare, government and other data intensive essential industries can improve their access with the Avocent ACS8000 cellular.
The Avocent ACS8000 cellular model allows data center and IT professionals and network operations center (NOC) personnel to access their networks remotely to perform secure, out-of-band management of Vertiv and other IT infrastructure assets anywhere in the world. Leveraging the Vertiv Avocent DSView management software, Avocent ACS8000 cellular users can maintain visibility and control of uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems, power distribution units (PDUs), KVM switches and other connected equipment through a simple, secure cellular connection.
In addition to managing devices, Avocent ACS8000 cellular lets users provision new equipment and troubleshoot issues, with or without functioning ethernet connections, for more efficient and secure network operations. It can be used in enterprise, edge, colocation, cloud and hyperscale applications and is ideal for remote environments either without wired internet or in sites without a primary network. It is also a fit for edge environments with a single wired internet connection requiring failover resiliency or for locations that do not want the complexity of adding failover traffic.
