In today’s world, everyone is online, computer literate and
IT savvy – Schools, Colleges and Universities are no exception.
From application, to enrolment, to acceptance, submission of coursework
and examinations, right through to graduation, thousands of students
depend on the University network being up and running at all times.
Confidential student information, lecturer and professor information,
sensitive research data, internal communications and other business
applications, running on tens of thousands of PC’s and peripherals,
need to be managed and accessed by Network Administrators.
Perle technology enables IT staff to network enable all printers,
PC’s, Servers and Peripherals – allowing them to be managed
and accessed remotely, minimising network downtime and eliminating

University of Victoria Underwater Observatory Uses Perle
Technology to Deliver Data to the Surface in Real-Time
Challenge: Connect serial based underwater
instruments to the network via Ethernet to allow for
real time data delivery and remote configuration. The
connectivity devices must meet four critical criteria
established by the engineers.
Solution: Perle IOLAN Device Servers
meet all four stringent requirements and the units
are installed on the underwater observatory
- Real time data collection allows for multi disciplinary
interactivity between various types of scientists
- Remote monitoring and configuration mean massive
cost savings because the equipment can remain submerged
for longer periods of time.
Uptime At Universities – Mission
Challenge: Managing tens of thousands of distributed
IT assets, spread over several University halls, campuses,
cities and even countries, insuring maximum uptime.
Solution: Console Management Solutions from Perle
help maximise uptime and enable IT managers to centrally
manage the University network infrastructure, ensure
connectivity to enterprise-network equipment even when
the network is down.
Benefit: Maximum uptime and overall
lower network-management costs.
