Vertiv introduced the Vertiv Avocent ACS 8000 advanced console server with cellular capabilities, ensuring seamless, integrated management of Vertiv and third-party equipment even when no wired network is available.
With the Avocent ACS 8000 cellular models, data center and IT professionals and network operations center (NOC) personnel can 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 ACS 8000 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.
“As more employees access data from remote locations and home offices, secure remote visibility and control are required for fully functioning and optimized networks,” said Angie McMillin, vice president and general manager of IT Systems solutions for Vertiv. “Healthcare, retail, government and other data intensive industries can improve their access with the Avocent ACS 8000 cellular.”
In addition to managing devices, Avocent ACS 8000 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.
The Avocent ACS 8000 cellular models are available currently in the United States and Canada.
