helps connect the world
The telecommunications industry require new and more cost-effective
ways of managing networks, technical expertise, space, and other
Telephone and data networks have to provide 100
percent availability for customers making calls or accessing the
internet. All this is made possible by a range of networking equipment
ranging from ATM switches in major hubs to DSLAMS for internet access
in telephone exchanges. If these key components fail, revenue
may be lost and customer satisfaction affected.
Telecommunications equipment is often installed in lights-out
data centres, distant POP sites, co-location facilities and
other sites. As a result, gaining access for re-boots, configuration
changes or diagnostics may be a costly exercise. And remote
in-band SNMP management systems may not provide an effective
Perle technology enables network administrators to access the
serial ports on telecommunications equipment whatever the circumstances.
With its sophisticated authentication and security features,
the Perle Console Server is one excellent choice. The Console Server will complement in-band management tools with a remote
access path, even when the network is unavailable.
