LX Series

Out-of-band networking

Our LX Series provides IT administrators with the ability to perform secure remote management of network infrastructures with an advanced out-of-band networking solution. Network infrastructures utilized in data centers, remote sites and test labs can be managed simply and effectively, reducing operational costs.

Our LX Series is a family of secure communication servers designed for applications requiring console or serial port management. The LX Series enables administrators to securely manage and configure remote network devices and servers. This simplifies operations and removes the need for personnel to be physically present at remote equipment sites. The LX Series provides a rich set of security capabilities meeting industry standards. For government focused customers and applications an optional version is available which meets the demanding US government FIPS 140-2 cryptographic security standard. The LX-4000T Series can meet a wide range of needs including dial-up access as well as sensor and alarm management. Sophisticated trigger/action control can be used for customizing notification and control needs. Our LX Series provides an intuitive web-based graphical user interface (GUI) and an extensive command line interface. What’s more, it also provides the ability to define subscriber based menus greatly easing navigation to common features and tasks. Our LX Series delivers the most secure and rich set of features.
