dominion sx console server

Raritan series of console servers

The Dominion SX II series of console servers is a simple solution for centralised control of the console ports of critical network devices in your racks. The SX ensures secure management across your network of switches, routers, PDUs and all other devices with a serial console port. If a peripheral device fails, the IT technician simply connects to its serial console port via a normal Internet browser. The technician thus solves the problem without having to visit the data center or computer room. The SX II therefore optimises your productivity and reduces your operating costs.

High level of compatibility with serial console ports

Because it auto-senses DTE/DCE serial console ports, the SX II connects directly to the RJ45 console ports on Cisco and other hardware via a Cat5 cable.

DTE & DCE port

Military-grade security

The Dominion SX II guarantees you optimum protection. Its defences? Strong AES, FIPS 140-2 certified encryption module, LDAP, RADIUS and Active Directory authentications and IPv4 and IPv6 network management.

Outstanding security from the DSXII

Other unique characteristics:

  • Access to the online control and management interface via SSH, Telnet and a non-Java browser thanks to direct access to the ports.
  • Local rack-level access via RJ45, Mini-USB or KVM.
  • Redundant power supplies (can be either AC or DC) and network.
  • Versions for 4 – 8 – 16 – 32 – 48 ports.
  • Integration with Raritan's CommandCenter Secure Gateway.
  • Internal phone modem in some models for emergencies.
  • Possibility of having an external modem via USB.

Accessing serial ports for more than 10 years!

The older version of Dominion SX won over thousands of customers during its 10 years of existence. With this second version, the Dominion SX II, Raritan has made the machine much more powerful thanks to its 1GHz processor. As a result, 10 users can connect to a serial port simultaneously and more than 200 simultaneous sessions are possible!
