Perle IOLAN SDSC LDC Console Servers Awarded NEBS Certification

Serial to Ethernet solution meets safety, electromagnetic compatibility, and environmental requirements for Telecommunications Industry.

NASHVILLE, TN—April 9, 2010— Perle Systems, the global developer and manufacturer of serial to Ethernet connectivity solutions today announced Network Equipment Building Systems (NEBS) Level 3 compliance on the full range of IOLAN SDSC LDC Console Servers. NEBS Level 3 is the strict system design guidelines applied to telecommunications equipment located in a Central Office network for the long haul.

This certification means that Perle IOLAN SDSC LDC Console Servers meet all of the safety, electromagnetic compatibility, and environmental requirements set forth for use of equipment in Regional Bell Operating Companies (RBOCs) central office applications.

Perle IOLAN SDSC LDC Console Servers are a cost effective serial-to-Ethernet solution. In addition to extensive security features, these IOLAN’s are designed to operate in the harsh environments associated with Telecommunications. They have support for Telco DC voltage ranges, extended operating temperatures and meet emission, immunity and safety approvals associated with telecommunications equipment.

“The telecommunications industry requires more cost-effective ways of managing networks,” said John Feeney, Chief Operating Officer at Perle Systems. “Telecommunications equipment is often installed in lights-out data centres, distant POP sites, and co-location facilities. 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 solution. If any key components fail, revenue may be lost and customer satisfaction is affected.“

Feeney continues, “The Perle IOLAN SDSC LDC Console Servers solve this problem by enabling network administrators to access the serial ports on telecommunications equipment whatever the circumstances. The IOLAN will complement in-band management tools with a remote access path, even when the network is down.”
