Introducing the new Advantage Voice ACS1 Remote Access Server for management of remote IP and serial devices

     Management of IP and legacy telephony de-
     vices is costly! Out of hours connectivity from
     your remote engineering sites to your cus-
     tomer networks can consume endless hours
     of travel for the most simple, yet necessary
     network changes. Until now, equipment that
     connects you to your customer’s telephone
     switches has also been expensive and, it has
     to be said, somewhat insecure. It was these
     reasons that drove Advantage Voice to de-
     velop a solution for RAS management that is both cost effective and secure. The
     ACS1 RAS server provides that level of cost effective management of both IP and
     serial equipment on your customer’s site.
     The ACS1 is a powerful, yet highly compact console server, used to connect serial devices such as
     modems, to a TCP/IP network. Typical applications include branch office IP telephone switch man-
     agement, legacy serial console port management and IP enablement of legacy serial devices.

     Dual PC slots within the ACS1 allow for enhanced functionality with support for multiple interface
     cards, such as Ethernet, modem (V.90, GSM, and ISDN) and wireless LAN.

     The AlterPath ACS1 uses its PowerPC dual CPU to transfer data between the 10/100BT Ethernet in-
     terface and the RS232 serial interface, enabling communication between the serial device and the IP
     network. The ACS1 supports SSHv2 (Secure Shell) for a high degree of security in data connections.

     The unit supports:-

     •   2 x PC card slots, with 1 slot preconfigured with a supplied V.90 modem
     •   1 x RS232 connection for serial managed equipment
     •   1 x Serial console port for maintenance and configuration of ACS1
     •   1 x 10/100 full duplex Ethernet port for IP managed equipment
     •   1 x RS485/422 (not supported by Advantage Voice)

     Thanks to the IP LAN interface, there is no limit to the number of devices that can be managed. This
     means that ACS1 can easily be deployed in single system sites and large multiple system sites alike,
     Connection to the managed devices can be direct, by simply entering its IP address, or can be via the
     preconfigured menu giving you the flexibility to choose the destination device to be managed.

     The ACS1 offers advanced hardware features, included to meet the stringent requirements of even
     the most demanding applications. PC Card slots offer enhanced functionality with support for many
     different types of interface card such as modems (V.92 and ISDN), Ethernet, fast Ethernet (fiber
     optic) and wireless LAN (GSM, CDMA and GPRS). Connection to legacy serial devices can be via the
     integrated VT100 terminal software, resulting in engineers needing only a Java enabled web
     browser to connect to legacy serial systems such as the Mitel SX2000.

In addition to providing secure connectivity and remote access to standalone or cluster environ-
ments, the ACS product family offers the industry’s first Enhanced Security Framework. This provides
pre-set or user defineable security profiles giving the flexibility for IT manager customisable security
profiles to comply with existing network security policies.

A wealth of security features such as secure clustering for console management of up to 1,024 de-
vices, X.509 SSH certificate support and Secure Shell (SSHv1/SSHv2) connections combine to offer a
robust and trustworthy remote management gateway for service providers and network managers of
PBX and IP PBX systems and delivering greater control and peace of mind.

Industry-leading Security Framework (adherence to security policies using pre-set and custom
security profiles):

•   Centralized administration
•   Secure in-band and out-of-band network remote management
•   Rock-solid stability (Linux Inside and NEBS Level 3 Certified)
•   Power management (Integrated multi-outlet power control)
•   Rack space savings (1U form factor)
•   Improved network monitoring
