What is a terminal server?
A terminal server connects serial equipment over IP based networks that can be local or remote. Typical uses for terminal servers involve connecting multiple pieces of critical equipment that are co-located at a particular facility or job site in applications such as manufacturing control, equipment monitoring, data processing, and remote access for troubleshooting. Terminal servers connect a wide range of critical industrial and commercial equipment that provide essential information concerning business safety, reliability, and efficiency.
Digi terminal servers come in serial port densities from 8 to 32 ports and provide serial over Ethernet connectivity using robust encryption using TLS/SSL or SSH connections.
