Lockheed Martin chooses Perle Console Servers to replace discontinued Cisco devices

Perle Servers meet every need — for a fraction of the cost.

John Rumbles, an engineer at Lockheed Martin, faced replacing numerous discontinued Cisco 2509 Access Servers across the UK. A straightforward option was to replace the 2509s with newer Cisco 2610 Access Servers, but due partially to budget restraints he decided to research what else was available in the market. As long as the replacement product could be dropped into the existing application, without replacing any cabling, he was open to alternative solutions at a more competitive price.

During an internet search he identified Perle IOLAN Console Servers as an alternative to Cisco. The Console Servers from Perle provided a drop-in solution that would not require any cabling changes. After extensive testing, Lockheed Martin chose the Perle IOLAN Console Servers to replace the Cisco 2509s.

John realised that the IOLAN Console Servers did everything he needed them to do at a fraction of the cost of the Cisco 2610 Access Servers. Perle Console Servers proved to be a high quality, reliable and secure alternative.
