USRobotics présente le Courier™ Console Server & Power Hybrid, une solution pour l'accès et la gestion d'un réseau « hors bande »

USRobotics, une société du groupe Platinum Equity, présente aujourd'hui le Courier™ Console Server & Power Hybrid USR4204, une nouvelle solution qui garantit un accès « hors bande » permanent à l'infrastructure réseau d'une entreprise, sur site ou à distance lorsque le réseau est indisponible en cas de pannes matérielles, ou quand l'accès « hors bande » est la seule alternative possible. Cette nouvelle solution est actuellement disponible en Europe et en Amérique du Nord.

Développé en interne par une équipe d'ingénieurs chevronnés d'USRobotics, le nouveau USR4204 est un module hybride combinant un serveur de console et une unité de gestion de l'alimentation au sein d'un châssis compact qui peut être installé sur un bureau ou dans un rack standard 1U de 19 pouces. Conçue pour les bureaux distants et les petites et moyennes entreprises, cette nouvelle solution hybride permet un accès sécurisé à l'infrastructure informatique d'une entreprise via un simple modem « hors bande » (analogique ou cellulaire), pour tous les périphériques connectés, ce qui réduit les dépenses en équipements ou services redondants (lignes téléphoniques, modems, espaces de rack, etc.). Cette solution propose en plus une console complète pour la gestion et le redémarrage des périphériques du réseau, que l'administrateur se trouve dans le bureau voisin ou à l'autre bout du monde.

« Ce nouveau serveur de console hybride assure des gains de temps, d'espace et d'argent considérables, en évitant notamment la multiplicité des lignes téléphoniques. Elle simplifie également le travail des administrateurs pour la résolution des problèmes d'accessibilité au réseau », explique Bruce Swail, PDG d'USRobotics.

Bruce Swail précise que le serveur de console autorise des connexions sécurisées depuis n'importe quel endroit, par la simple utilisation d'un nom d'utilisateur et d'un mot de passe. Une couche de sécurité supplémentaire (notamment via des fonctions de rappel) peut être obtenue par l'utilisation conjointe d'un modem USRobotics Courier Business (USR843453C), dont les performances ont déjà été saluées dans le monde entier.

Le nouveau USR4204 est l'une des rares solutions hybrides du marché à offrir deux ports d'alimentation indépendants et utilisant des sorties C13 normalisées IEC, pour un contrôle de charges 120-240 V CA 50 ou 60 Hz. Avec cette solution, les administrateurs peuvent redémarrer facilement et efficacement les pare-feux, routeurs ou tous les autres dispositifs connectés au réseau. En complément, l'USR4204 permet un monitoring distant et indépendant de la demande en courant alternatif sur chaque port d'alimentation, à des fins de diagnostics et d'optimisation. En parallèle, la partie « console » de l'appareil permet de basculer entre quatre périphériques série, à distance (via un modem) ou localement (par le biais d'un terminal connecté par câbles Ethernet standard). Des fonctionnalités Flash distantes permettent des mises à jour logicielles sur des sites distants depuis un point de contrôle centralisé, et offrent une prise en charge des dispositifs Cisco ROMmon pour réseau Cisco.

Le Courier™ Console Server & Power Hybrid USR4204 mesure 25,3 x 19,7 x 4,4 centimètres et pèse 1,55 kg. Il est livré avec un câble RJ45, des adaptateurs DB9 et DB25, deux supports pour montage en rack avec vis, quatre pieds en caoutchouc pour une installation sur un bureau et une alimentation universelle avec prises pour l'Europe, le Royaume-Uni, les États-Unis, le Canada et la Chine.

Le produit est homologué FCC, ICES, UL/CUL, CAN/CSA, CE, RoHS et DEEE.

DISPONIBILITÉ

Le nouveau Courier™ Courier Console & Power Hybrid USR4204 d'USRobotics est disponible par le biais du réseau de distributeurs et de revendeurs de USRobotics en France, notamment TechData, Azlan et Intervalle. Disponible au prix de vente conseillé de 564 € HT, l'USR4204 bénéficie d'une garantie fabricant limitée de 2 ans à partir de la date d'achat.

The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
The 3rd International @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the most profound change in personal and enterprise IT since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago. All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
