IR-15000 and IR-6000
Modular Console Server and Alarm Management

The In-Reach 15000 and the In-Reach 6000 are high-performance, multi-processor and modular chassis-based out-of-band network element management (NEM) systems. These multifunctional platforms offer the same powerful and innovative remote console, alarm and sensor management features found in the In-Reach standalone solutions.

The reliability, security and performance of the In-Reach chassis-based solutions significantly reduce the cost of network operations by eliminating the need for trained technicians at every site and minimizing costly on-site visits. The In-Reach solution enhances operations support system (OSS) management by enabling more centralized monitoring and control of network elements (NEs). NEs such as server farms, switches, routers, CSU/DSUs, alarm devices, environmental sensors and telecommunications equipment can be managed efficiently from a single In-Reach chassis.

Ideally suited for communication network service providers and enterprise networks, In-Reach solutions offer a range of processor and I/O module configurations to provide an all-in-one solution for remote console, alarm/control and sensor management.

High Port Density
In-Reach chassis models deliver the highest port density NEM system in the industry. The IR-15000 is a 15-slot chassis that scales from 20 to 336 physical ports. The IR-6000 is a 6-slot chassis that scales from 20 to 100 physical ports.

The IR-15000 can provide a maximum of 336 remote console ports, 560 alarm/control points or 280 sensor ports and the IR-6000 can provide a maximum of 100 remote console ports, 200 alarm/control points or 100 sensor ports, all in a single chassis.

Scaleable Architecture
In-Reach systems can scale to thousands of ports by interconnecting multiple chassis and standalone systems either locally or remotely. In-Reach networking modules support Ethernet or switched asynchronous dial-up connections.

The scaleable In-Reach software architecture offers maximum investment protection by using a common software image across all In-Reach IR models. This design simplifies the management of all remote console, alarm and sensor devices. Further, the In-Reach software is equipped with an intuitive command line interface (CLI) for installation, configuration, maintenance and troubleshooting. The In-Reach chassis operates efficiently in heterogeneous networks and can be managed by any industry-standard, SNMP-compliant NMS such as Megavision, HP OpenView, Sun NetManager, etc.


Console Management
The In-Reach remote console management processor and I/O modules connect to the serial console or craft ports of the network elements to be managed. This serial connection allows network operations and OSS managers to remotely access, configure, manage, troubleshoot or upgrade their network elements as if attached locally. This centralized out-of-band management approach is required for maintaining the operational stability of in-band networks and geographically dispersed network elements.

In-Reach console management systems also support script-based automated provisioning for unmanned environments. Optional external modems can be connected to serial ports for reliable and secure out-of-band access to the console ports of remote network elements. In addition to the physical ports, In-Reach provides nine virtual management ports enabling multiple users to perform system operations simultaneously.

In-Reach systems do not generate serial break signals when powered off; therefore, Sun servers attached to In-Reach chassis are protected from unexpected and costly server outages.

Next Generation IP-Based Alarm and Sensor Management
In-Reach alarm management processors and I/O modules connect to dry-contact closures and provide discrete alarm management. Our next-generation IP-based alarm management enables network managers from a centralized network operations center (NOC) to monitor all types of alarm devices, such as door, pressure, flood, gas and battery. It also allows either manual or automatic handling of control outputs such as emergency lighting, sirens and power generators. In-Reach software enables each physical alarm management port to operate as an alarm master port or pairs of alarm inputs and control outputs.

Alarm inputs accept discrete input signals that are generated when contact closures change state. In-Reach control outputs send voltage signals to relays in devices such as backup generators or emergency lighting systems in response to state changes from alarm devices.

The serial ports of the In-Reach system can be configured to monitor the readings of temperature/humidity sensors. Coupled with its Intelligent Self-Healing feature, environmental conditions of equipment facilities can be managed efficiently.

Automated Response to Alarm Conditions
The Automated response to alarm conditions feature in the In-Reach software facilitates timely, intelligent and unmanned alarm and sensor management. Using this feature, alarm or sensor trigger-conditions and corresponding response actions can be defined.

Response actions can be defined to initiate an SNMP trap or control output signal, or automatically execute a pre-defined command script. These trigger actions can also be configured to initiate a response whenever measured parameter values of a sensor port change beyond preset thresholds or when an alarm input changes state.

The self-healing feature has the provision to define as many as 255 trigger conditions and 255 actions, ensuring reliable alarm and sensor management.

To add to your peace of mind, In-Reach software offers a set of robust security features such as per-port and multi-level password protection, access control lists (ACLs), IP filtering, PPP PAP/CHAP, PPP dialback, SecurID and RADIUS. In addition, support for the industry-standard Secure Shell encryption serves as a secure alternative to Telnet and prevents unauthorized intrusion.

The In-Reach software also includes a powerful data-logging feature that provides the ability to track previously entered commands and data. With this feature, security breaches and last change events are accounted for and easily identified.

Redundant Power
In-Reach chassis N+1 power redundancy guarantees the delivery of reliable power to the system in the rare occurrence of a power supply failure. The IR-15000 can accommodate up to five load-balancing power supplies and the IR-6000 can accommodate a maximum of two power supplies for critical applications that require power redundancy. In-Reach chassis can also accommodate redundant power inputs from multiple power sources.
