A router can play a critical role in protecting the entry point into a government IT infrastructure. The Perle IRG7440 5G Router is the first product in its class that does not require an annual subscription or license fee to access features, maintain operation, or download software updates. This router provides fast, secure, and reliable 5G NR or CAT20 LTE coverage for a wide variety of IoT and M2M applications. It can function as a 5G Router and four-port 10/100/1000 Ethernet Switch in a single-box solution. Ideal as a 5G failover and out-of-band management solution, the IRG7440 Router can also be deployed in 3G or 4G environments to ensure a seamless transition to 5G over time. The extensive routing protocol support (RIP, OSPF, BGP-4, VRRP, IPv4, IPv6, OpenVPN, IPSec VPN, DHCP), zone-based firewall, 2 Factor Authentication, and remote authentication (RADIUS, TACACS+, LDAP) management, ensures the IRG7440 5G Router will integrate seamlessly with any infrastructure to control access to devices in the field and protect inside networks from unauthorized users.

The Perle IOLAN SCG Console Server provides secure out-of-band (OOB) access to government, data center and IT infrastructure equipment. This is the best way to gain access to critical equipment when the network is down, a device is turned off, in sleep mode, hibernating, or otherwise inaccessible. By establishing secure direct access to the console management port of critical IT assets such as routers, switches, and firewalls, disruption and downtime are minimized by providing better visibility of the physical environment and the physical status of equipment.

With support for full routing (RIP, OSPF, and BGP) capabilities, Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP), two-factor authentication (2FA), an integrated firewall, advanced failover to multiple networks, RADIUS, TACACS+, & LDAP authentication, plus leading data encryption tools, the IOLAN SCG Console Servers provide the most robust OOBM solution to keep networks and data secure.

The IDS-710HP is a 10-port PoE Gigabit Switch with fiber and copper uplink ports. In addition to transmitting network data, the IDS-710HP has a built-in PoE injector to supply up to 100W PoE per port for a total of 450W across all copper ports. Classified as Layer 2 Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE), the switch will detect if connected devices, such as surveillance cameras, are PoE-compatible and will automatically supply power. The IDS-710HP will not need to be replaced as PDs are updated because, as a fully 802.3bt compliant switch, it supports all PD types, classes, and topologies. The IDS-710HP can also remotely reboot attached PDs to save technicians a trip to service locations that are difficult to access like exterior walls, ceilings, light posts, pipelines, and kiosks. All of this powerful functionality is packed into an extremely small chassis ensuring the switch will fit into any space.
