Features and Benefits

CPS units, and attached devices, can be centrally managed using Avocent DSView 3 software. They can also be accessed in a stand-alone manner using third-party software or Avocent vConsole® management software. These methods are designed to meet the needs of data centers of all sizes.

The CPS serial over IP appliance is also available in a 16-port model.

Large Data Center Application
In large data centers, the CPS serial over IP appliance may be configured to work in unison with the DSR™, SPC and other Avocent switches and appliances. When attached to the KVM, serial and power ports of devices within a data center, the Avocent appliances enable administrators to manage those devices through local access at the rack or by remote access via KVM over IP connections.

Small to Mid-sized Data Center Application

For small to mid-sized data centers, the CPS unit may be configured for stand-alone operation. In this mode, the CPS serial over IP solution can be used in conjunction with third-party Telnet and/or SSH client software for secure console port management. User accounts and permissions may be stored within the CPS unit or on an external RADIUS server.



Software Features
  • Complete KVM, Serial and Power Management Solution: Works in unison with the DSR, SPC and other Avocent appliances to enable administrators to manage a wide range of data center devices through local access at the rack or by remote access through KVM over IP connections.
  • Centralized Management: Avocent DS management software coordinates remote access to DS appliances, and attached devices, in a centralized manner. The software suite consists of the DSView® software client; the DSAuth central authentication, access control, audit server, and administration for DS user accounts and appliances. DSWebview provides browser-based users with a secure gateway into the DS environment. Avocent DS management software is sold separately.
  • Security: The CPS appliance offers internal and external user authentication methods and port-specific access rights.
  • Ease of Access: Avocent DS management software provides an explorer function that presents your servers within an intuitive graphical user interface, allowing you to locate and access your critical resources via a simple mouse click. With support for custom labels and icons, it is no longer necessary to recall cryptic machine names or IP addresses.
  • Avocent Telnet Client: Compatible with third-party SSH and Telnet clients. The CPS appliance comes complete with an Avocent Java-based Telnet client. The supplied Telnet client offers file-based session logging, cut and paste, print screen, session history, macro support and a wide range of terminal emulations.
  • Browser Access: DSWebview combines ease of Internet access with central security and management.
  • Scalable: The CPS appliance architecture is scalable rather than stackable; there are no restrictions on the number of DS appliances that can be added to an installation.
  • Non-blocked Access: The CPS appliance architecture supports simultaneous sessions to all serial ports

Note: DSView 3 software is sold separately.

Hardware Features
  • Solaris Ready: Hardware break suppression ensures uninterrupted operation of your Solaris server even if power is lost to the CPS appliance.
  • Break Generation: Hardware break may be intentionally generated via Telnet or SSH clients
  • Port History: Port history functionality includes offline buffering, string search and various modes to save or clear onboard history buffers.
  • Direct Port Addressing: Sessions may be established directly to any CPS appliance port by using SSH to bypass the CPS appliance command line interface.

Customers agree: The CPS serial over IP appliance makes it easier to upgrade and reconfigure their data center:
"The Avocent CPS appliance allows our administrators to manage servers, Cisco routers and switches, APC MasterSwitches and other console-enabled devices from local workstations or remote monitoring stations. The vConsole software was incredibly easy to install and provides us with a single application for combined Telnet and Web-based management."
