As engineer I have one really important tool in my backpack

Not everywhere I go, there is an option to remote access equipment. Sometimes I find myself in front of a rack, and could use a second pair of eyes. Other way around, there is not always time to send our best engineer on his/her way to resolve a device that won’t recover from a reboot/power issue/etc. That’s when we use our Airconsole!

What is Airconsole? – The Only Serial Adaptor You’ll Ever Need

Airconsole 2.0 is our popular portable, battery powered, RS232 Serial over WIFI and Bluetooth Adaptor. Designed to be seamlessly used with Mobile Apps on iOS, Android and also on PC, MAC OSX and Linux, Airconsole provides flexible and convenient access to physical Serial and Ethernet ports from devices (such as iPads and iPhones) that have only WIFI or Bluetooth interfaces.

 

The Universal Serial Adaptor:

Airconsole for Personal Use

– Connects to everything – RS232, DB9, DB25, DEX, Cisco serial console (RJ45 and USB), Serial over USB

– Flexible – Operate as a Wireless AP, AP Client or combination of both. Also bridges WIFI to Wired Ethernet to give Wireless only devices a “Wired” Ethernet port.

 

Airconsole gets your modern devices connected to the legacy and USB serial ports on industrial, networking, home automation or other field equipment quickly and easily. No more hunting for the right cable or converter – auto-discovery and setup is built into our Get Console and SerialBot apps, and on PC and Mac our drivers make Airconsole appear as a physically connected serial port.

 

The Portable Terminal Server

Airconsole low cost serial terminal server

 

Why spend hundreds or thousands on a Moxa*, Perle* or Opengear* serial terminal server – the Airconsole is a full featured remote access and out-of-band management device for server and network equipment serial ports – it happens to also be portable and draw very little power. Connect Airconsole’s into your wired or wireless management network and it can auto-tunnel back to the Airconsole Enterprise Server management software (available for customers to host internally or on Amazon EC2). Licenses are included with Airconsole Pro / XL kits.
