Effective government is
increasingly dependent on information technology. From
e-government initiatives to
the introduction of new systems,
it’s one of the
most demanding sectors. Information technology is underpinning
all aspects of government from parliaments to people.
The government’s ability to keep its systems and networks
operational is essential. Systems administrators need to
ensure mission critical applications and networks are effectively
managed at all times. Any downtime must be minimised so as
not to affect user access.
Although systems and equipment can often be managed from the network itself,
such access may not always be possible. Fortunately, most computer systems and
network devices provide a serial port for local access. The problem comes when
such equipment is not readily accessible.
Perle’s multi-port console servers and Serial Cards offer network
or dial-up access to local system ports. Administrators are able to have access
from anywhere, just as if they were connected locally through a serial connection.
Remote management helps reduce costs yet maintains network security.
