What is an out-of-band serial console?
An out-of-band serial console connects to network devices via the serial port, which allows engineers to access and manage multiple devices from one centralized console. The OOB serial console includes a secondary network interface, such as a cellular SIM card or v.92 modem, which acts as a network failover and provides OOB management access if the primary ISP connection goes down. Out-of-band serial consoles are crucial tools that simplify remote infrastructure management and ensure consistent access.
Why you need a Gen 3 out-of-band serial console
The latest innovations in OOB serial console technology, known as Gen 3, take things even further by enabling end-to-end network automation. Nodegrid is the first Gen 3 out-of-band serial console solution.
A Gen 3 out-of-band serial console, like the Nodegrid Serial Console Plus (NSCP), uses vendor-neutral hardware and an open, Linux-based operating system. This ensures easy integrations with your choice of third-party automation and orchestration tools like Docker and Ansible and gives you the freedom to write custom scripts in whichever language you prefer.
The Nodegrid Gen 3 OOB serial console can also host third-party applications, Docker containers, and security solutions. This gives network administrators a single, unified control panel from which to orchestrate automated workflows, manage edge computing resources, and secure remote traffic.
Plus, Nodegrid hardware and software are protected by the Zero Trust Security Framework Foundation, which includes security-in-depth hardware features, embedded firewall functionality, and support for SAML 2.0 authentication (e.g., Duo or Okta).
