Increased efficiency, reduced fatalities, and cost-effective, integrated
systems are some of the mandates demanded of today’s highly
developed transportation technologies. Perle products IP-enable
a diverse range of transportation equipment to assist in maximizing
Systems that utilize information processing, communications, and electronics
such as Intelligent Transportation Systems, Rail Signals and Switches,
Dynamic Message Signs, Amber Alerts and Flight Arrival/Departure Displays,
all use Perle products to monitor and manage transportation and travel.
The advanced technologies used today provide congestion relief, incident
management, safety and alternate route notifications, in order to improve
transportation efficiency and increase public safety

Stories / Application Notes
Department of Transportation (DOT)
Adds Variable Message Signs to Existing Network Thanks
To IOLAN Scalability
Challenge: Add Variable Message Signs
(VMS) to Existing Network while keeping existing traffic
controllers and serial to Ethernet device servers while
avoiding hard line construction costs.
Solution: Original Perle IOLAN Device
Servers were installed with scalability in mind, making
the addition a VMS straightforward.
- Reduced congestion and improved traffic management
- Avoided construction and hard wiring costs
- Eliminated risk of error - no Dip Switches
A Municipality Saves Costs When Adding Video Detection
to Intersections by Using IOLAN Device Servers
Challenge: How to implement new Ethernet
based technologies such as Video Detection while maintaining
use of existing serial based traffic controllers and
traffic management control software applications
Solution: Install IOLAN
Device Servers to consolidate video,
Ethernet and serial traffic controllers across one
- Upgraded intersections with video detection
- Maintain use of existing traffic controllers and
- Avoided costly hard-line deployment
A City Implements a New ATMS While Leveraging Existing
Challenge: How to implement a new
Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) along with
the latest Ethernet-based traffic devices while maintaining
use of thousands of serial based traffic devices such
as variable message signs, signal controllers, roadside
sensors, lane control signals already in the field,…..
Solution: Install Perle IOLAN Device Servers in the
field to IP-enable the existing traffic control devices.
Benefits: The City IP-enables existing traffic control devices
in order to interface with both the new ATMS and
the new Ethernet-based traffic equipment. This way
the City avoids costly equipment replacement & leverages
their initial traffic control equipment investment.
Perle Helps National Railway Implement Real-time Traffic Information System
Challenge: Provide departure times
of trains and to keep passengers and staff informed
about the traffic status at all times
Solution: Perle UltraPort 4 port
RS232 serial cards to handle the communication with
the video monitors
with all major operating systems and operational without
needing to make modifications to equipment or cables.
Dial-In Solutions Keeps Track of Warehouse Stock
Challenge: The company was looking for a dial-in solution
that would allow its customers’ suppliers to check warehouse stock levels.
It also needed to give IT staff remote access to the AS/400 and provide
office-based employees with Internet access from the LAN.
Solution: Eddie Stobart chose a Perle
833AS Access Server to meet its multiple requirements.
Perle 833AS has provided the company with a secure
and scalable solution for its customers’ information
requirements. It also met the company’s internal needs
for an easy-to-use, reliable solution that provides
remote access to the AS/400 and offers LAN-based dialout
Serial to Ethernet Products
Serial to Ethernet
- Connect devices with serial interfaces to Ethernet
- Extend serial device connections over longer distances with Ethernet
- Connect to the serial console port on remote equipment ( Servers,
routers, switches, PBX’s, etc )
