Perle launches Modular Console Servers for In-Band and Out-of-Band-Management
Support for up to 50 USB and RS232 Console Ports, redundant copper and fiber Ethernet network access, WiFi network access and a V.92 modem connection
NASHVILLE, TN—October 30th, 2018 — Perle Systems, a global provider of advanced serial to Ethernet and device networking hardware, today released the IOLAN SCG Secure Console Servers as an advanced IT Infrastructure Management Solution.
Most devices today can be accessed directly over an Ethernet network. However, in environments where 24/7 uptime is expected, this single point of access is simply not enough, especially if IT assets are in controlled server rooms, off-site, or difficult to access. This is where a Console Server comes into play. It gives Administrators a secure way to remotely access the console management port of every device on the network. This ensures the ability to monitor, manage, trouble-shoot or re-boot critical IT assets at any time from any location.
The new modular IOLAN SCG Console Server takes this solution to the next level. It offers up to four secure remote access methods to critical network devices.
- Every Modular IOLAN SCG Secure Console Server comes with redundant copper and fiber Ethernet network access support. Any dual combination of the two 10/100/1000Base-T Copper Ports and two 100/1000Base-X SFP Fiber Ports can be used to meet unique network access requirements.
- Every IOLAN SCG W Secure Console Server also comes with built-in WiFi network access over dual-band radio antennas for optimal wireless performance, signal reliability and range. With broad range support of Wireless LAN Technology (IEEE 802.11 a,b,g,n,i @ 2.4Ghz/5Ghz) and fast wireless speeds up to 150Mbps, the IOLAN SCG W is ideal to ensure you always have access to critical network devices.
- Every IOLAN SCG M Secure Console Server also comes with an on-board RJ11 V.92 modem connection for a secure and reliable out-of-band connection over the POTS network. This means that should IP network access become unavailable, the IOLAN SCG M can serve as the necessary alternate access method to troubleshoot and reboot critical network devices.
- The IOLAN SCG WM gives you everything -- redundant copper and fiber Ethernet network access, WiFi network access and the V.92 modem connection.
The modular IOLAN SCG Console Server, with 18, 32, 34, 48 or 50 Console Management Ports, supports both RS232 RJ45 and USB connectivity to console ports on equipment such as routers, switches, firewalls, servers, PBXs, network storage equipment and security appliances. The modular design of the IOAN SCG allows the user to swap, upgrade and scale to any “mix-and-match” combination of 16-port USB 3.0 or RS-232 RJ45 interface module cards. The IOLAN SCG Console Server can be purchased fully populated or partially populated so that modules can be swapped or added by users as needs grow or change.
John Feeney, COO at Perle Systems comments, "We recognise that every network is unique. A one size fits all approach doesn’t work when it comes to in-and-out-of-band-management of IT assets. These new modular ‘mix and match’ Console Servers allow multiple layers of accessibility and management to ease deployment frustrations, while future proofing existing investments"
With advanced network security features, recognized authentication schemes and standard data encryption tools, IT administrators can feel confident that network data transmissions, and all access to the console admin ports on IT equipment, is secure.
All Perle IOLAN Console Servers only use high-end components to ensure product reliability. Perle backs this up with a Lifetime Warranty to guarantee user satisfaction.
