EDS8PS / EDS16PS - Hybrid Ethernet Terminal and Multiport Device Servers

Hybrid Ethernet terminal/multiport device servers.

The EDS8PS and EDS16PS are unique, hybrid Ethernet terminal/multiport device servers which allow remote access to and management of virtually any IT/networking equipment or edge device like medical equipment, POS terminals or security equipment.

Featuring Lantronix' powerful Evolution OS®, EDS delivers an unprecedented level of intelligence and safety. With AES, SSH and SSL built in, EDS provides enterprise-level security allowing safe remote access and management from practically anywhere.

With no special software required, setup is a breeze with our Windows-based DeviceInstaller™, which can be used locally or remotely using Telnet, a web browser or XML.

Evolution OS provides 'data-center grade' protection so each networked device carries the same level of security as corporate data center equipment and provides robust defenses to hostile Internet attacks.

A "Cisco-like" command line interface (CLI) simplifies configuration and control, making it easier to integrate edge devices or data center equipment into the network.

Included, Lantronix' proprietary Com Port Redirector™ virtualization software allows existing applications to work with the EDS with no code modifications.


  • Quickly connect any device with a serial port to the network using robust SSH or SSL enterprise-level security
  • Easily customize and enhance the EDS for your unique application with Evolution OS
  • Simple device set-up, configuration and monitoring with powerful, industry-standard management tools (Web, CLI, XML, SNMP)
  • Sleek design (with desktop or wall-mount capability) appropriate for installation in medical or other high visibility applications
