Overview

The Boston Product Division of MRV Communications, Inc. is pleased to announce the addition of its LX-8000S NEBS Series of 20 and 40 port console servers to the LX Family. The new LX-8020S and LX-8040S models further extend the industry-leading MRV product line of console management solutions.

Product Details

The LX-8000S 20 and 40 port AC and DC NEBS units (single or dual power supplies) with an optional internal modem add high-end NEBS console server management to the MRV's LX Series. All models are powered by 32-bit RISC embedded processors with embedded co-processors that enable the execution of an extensive software feature set with processing power to spare. Like the LX-4000S series, the LX-8000S series is driven by the In-REach Operating System (IROS); a Linux based operating system tuned for optimal performance, security and reliability.

The LX-8000S model NEBS console servers are designed for telco applications that demand high quality and reliability standards, dual power and NEBS Level-3 Certification. The rack requirements for the telco environment were a design factor for the LX-8000S and resulted in a unit that has all its primary connectors and power on the rear of the unit and LIDs, modem (telco) and diag ports on the front. There are two status LEDs for the A and B feeds of each power unit in a dual powered system, as well as LEDs indicating System, Voltage Regulator and Temperature status.

Software wise, it offers secure console server or serial console server port management, sensor management and power control. It offers the industry's most comprehensive security features, including per port password protection, RADIUS, Secure Shell v2.0, SecurID, LDAP, TACACS+, PPP PAP/CHAP, PPP dial-back, on-board database and others. The LX software offers its Cluster Control and Configuration (C3) features for LX deployments in large networks. It supports the configuration and control of clusters of sizes up to 1000 LX units without a single point of failure and is an invaluable tool for managing software updates in a very large network.

MRV has designed the LX-8000S NEBS units to be software upgradeable, offering investment protection with the ability to meed future console management needs. Future software releases will incorporate all of the software features available in the LX-8000S today along with IROC's complete set of In-Reach alarm management capabilities. The LX-8000S's software configurable ports provide the total flexibility required to control a variety of core network, discrete alarm and environmental sensor devices, all with a single box. The LX-8000S meets today's console, sensor and power management needs with the capacity and scalability to address even the most demanding future needs.
