Managing the IT infrastructure is a constant
challenge for large financial institutions. From complex head office
applications to office automation servers in remote branches, support
staff are always kept busy. Many companies now wish to streamline their
support operations by introducing centralised remote management tools
to cut costs and improve efficiency.
The key to effective management is having the right connectivity across
the whole infrastructure. Central or remote devices must be readily
accessible for diagnostics, configuration, or user setups. Although
specialist management software provides in-band remote monitoring across
the network, some tasks may require physical access to a serial port.
Perle technology enables financial institutions to connect, manage,
share, and configure remote equipment through Serial Cards,
terminal servers, and, for the largest networks, Perle console servers.
Offering the choice of point-to-point serial connections via dial-up
or full serial to IP network connectivity, there's a solution for all
circumstances from the corporate HQ to distant offices.
Perle Serial Cards help add essential connectivity
between PCs/servers and peripheral devices such as printers. Perle
terminal servers offer stand-alone connectivity for serial devices
to Ethernet LANs while sophisticated console servers enable the secure
administration of remote devices from any location. It all adds up
to an anywhere, anytime management solution for pro-active yet cost-effective
support across the entire IT infrastructure.
