The Lantronix SLC 8000 advanced console manager is the industry’s first modular console server that provides secure remote access to IT equipment, while reducing deployment costs and time.

Did You Know?

Today, many leading IT equipment manufacturers (like Cisco, Brocade, Dell, HPE and others) are moving towards launching USB-only based solutions. The Lantronix SLC 8000 is the only industry solution that can support up to 48 high-density USB ports and is compatible with multiple manufacturers’ USB solutions.


Centrally Monitor, Manage, and Troubleshoot

Designed for system administrators, quality and test engineers, the SLC 8000 provides easy, secure administration and management of IT equipment from anywhere and at any time. Users can access the SLC 8000 device ports via Telnet/SSH, or a web browser-based console client without any proprietary software. Any IT asset that provides console or serial port management services can be managed remotely and locally with the same interface and capabilities. The SLC 8000 enables users to leverage the command line interface of most IT equipment for reconfiguring, rebooting and reloading firmware from a single point of contact. This can be done over an in-band network with dual Gigabit Ethernet connections for both public and management networks, or through out-of-band connections including dial-up (optional internal modem, sold separately) and cellular connectivity. Users can securely access and control a wide variety of IT and network equipment, including Linux, Unix or Windows® servers, routers, switches, firewalls, PBXs, UPSs, and even building access devices through their serial ports.


Unique Modular Design Saves You Time and Money

The Lantronix SLC 8000 advanced console manager’s unique modular chassis allows for easy and cost-effective field upgrades with user-swappable 16 port USB and RS-232 modules — helping you protect your legacy equipment investment and transition to newer USB solutions at your own pace.

Need to switch from serial to USB (or support a combination of both)? Expand the number of ports on your console manager (up to 48)? Change from single to dual power supply? All of these are possible with the modular design of SLC 8000. The bottom line: with SLC 8000, you have the ability to easily deploy and upgrade new services and equipment, and minimize capital expenditures. 

Most Compatible USB Solution

Designed to adapt to the changing needs of today’s enterprise network, the dynamic SLC 8000 advanced console manager is the
only appliance on the market that is compatible with Cisco, HPE, Brocade and other leading manufacturers’ USB switches and routers. By leveraging the command line interface of most IT equipment, system engineers and administrators around the world can seamlessly reconfigure, reboot and reload firmware over an in-band or out-of-band connection for optimal data center performance.


Integrated Security

Protecting IT resources is a top priority. The SLC 8000 provides security features such as SSL and SSH for data encryption in addition to remote two-factor authentication for integration with other systems already in place. Whether local or remote, authentication can be achieved via RADIUS, LDAP/AD, NIS, Kerberos, TACACS + and SSH keys. For added protection, the unit is shielded by NIST AES Encryption and firewall features to block ports or reject unauthorized connection attempts. The SLC 8000 also supports FIPS 140-2 certified mode for government and military applications. Real time event notifications expedite response times and special audit logging with automated logout records system activity to ensure compliance.


High Performance

The SLC 8000 console manager is ideal for today’s enterprise data centers as well as collaborative environments such as test and development labs. With the ability to support up to 15 users per port simultaneously and 396 concurrent sessions per console at full line rate, the SLC 8000 unit delivers twice the performance compared to other appliances on the market.


New: LTE Cellular Connectivity Kit

The Lantronix LTE Cellular Connectivity Kit delivers mission-critical LTE connectivity as a failover solution to protect your data center and branch office out-of-band management infrastructure against landline failure. With new automatic fail-over functionality built into your SLB Branch Office Manager, deployment of a secondary enterprise network connection is simple and quick, and automatic fail-over from a land-line network outage is seamless.
