USRobotics debuts USR4204 Courier Console Server & Power Hybrid
USRobotics, a Platinum Equity company, launched the USR4204 Courier Console Server & Power Hybrid, a critical back-up business solution that provides remote access for up to 4 console ports and control of up to 2 power ports over a single modem connection.
The solution allows companies to quickly reboot or configure routers, servers and firewalls from remote locations when the network goes down, or Out-of-Band is the only option available. It also keeps costs to a minimum and reduces rack space and maintenance by consolidating to a single console server power hybrid and just one modem, while retaining the same amount of control.
Users can switch between four serial devices remotely, with a modem or locally with a connected terminal. The serial Ports have 2 LEDs that indicate select, transmit and receive. It also features additional dialback security with a Courier Business Modem that checks calls for password authorization, and then dials back preset numbers to ensure appropriate users establish connections.
“The new console hybrid saves time, space and money, along with the headaches involved with downtime when the network isn’t accessible,” said Bruce Swail, CEO of USRobotics.
The new console server hybrid is currently shipping throughout North America and Europe. It is available direct from the company’s website and can also be purchased through the authorized distributors Ingram Micro, Tech Data (News - Alert), D&H, Synnex; and reseller partners CDW, Provantage and Tiger Direct.
Meanwhile, USRobotics recently launched a 56K USB Soft Modem (USR5639) that features plug-and-play installation, making it ideal for most confined spaces. Broadly compatible with Windows including 64 bit and server systems, the modem uses the CPU of the host computer for high compression throughout for direct parallel access. Features include ring detection and qualification, eliminating unintended wake-on-ring events via activity on the phone line other than ringing, as well as handling pulse dial control to eliminate system timing dependencies common with soft modems.
