KEY-BASED REMOTE REBOOT CONTROLLER (K-RRC)
SECURITY and EASE OF USE
The K-RRC is a Key-based Remote Reboot Controller that allows a caller to very easily, yet very securely, control the AC power or press the reset button on remote equipment out-of-band, over ordinary telephone lines. A number of options are available to meet a variety of application requirements.
A matchbox-sized hardware Key, connected to the phone line at the calling end, performs a high level of authentication before the remote controller will take any action. The desired action (ON/OFF/RESET) is selected via a rotary switch on the key. A single Key can be used to control an infinite number of K-RRCs.
The type of control available to the caller is determined by the type of control device that is connected to the K-RRC. AC power control is provided through an Intelligent AC Power Strip or an International Power Controller, whereas simple push button resets can be accomplished through an economical PC-RJ Cable Assembly that connects to the reset pins on the motherboard of the target PC.
When using the proper Key, the caller has only to dial the proper phone number to initiate the desired action. No other Touch-Tone commands or other involvement is required and the Key is passive to all other inbound or outbound line activity.
If the Key is not present when the K-RRC receives a call, the call may be aborted (secure mode) or switched to the default port where normal voice, fax or modem activity may occur (shared mode). This eliminates the requirement for a separate phone line for the power control or reset function while maintaining the security and ease of use features.
The unit can also be set to automatically reset the associated AC power device or the reset button adapter, if the associated modem or PC does not answer the line after five rings. It may also simply be used to gain access to remote modems in a highly authenticated manner, but the Challenger P2, on which the challenge/response technology is based, may provide a more economical approach to this basic requirement.
Any of these operating options can be selected via four dip-switches on the K-RRC. It is about the size of a cigarette package, requires no AC power and has three RJ-11 telephone type connectors.
Field Programming Option
Option Control Devices
The International Power Controller (IPC) has two standard IEC (PC type) AC power connectors. It can be installed anywhere in the world using locally available PC power cords. It also automatically senses the line voltages for any country. An automatic "heartbeat" reboot function through the serial port of the target PC is also included.
The PC-RJ Cable Assembly installs in an opening on the back panel of a PC and connects to the reset pins on the motherboard. It does not require a slot on the motherboard.
