Personnel in offices apart from corporate headquarters often face unique challenges when it comes to managing IT equipment such as servers, routers, switches, firewalls, VPNs, PBX and UPS systems. Often, there is no dedicated or on-site system administrator. Therefore, when issues with networked equipment arise, they require a consultant or excessive phone time with corporate technical support - both adding cost and potentially extending downtime. With the newly redesigned Lantronix® SLB secure branch office manager, these are no longer concerns. IT administrators can remotely control and manage console and power (on/off/reboot) of IT equipment anytime, anywhere.
