NASHVILLE, TN - April 16th, 2012 — Perle Systems, a global provider of advanced serial to Ethernet and secure device networking solutions announced today Linux Kernel 3.x support for the full range of PCI-RAS Multimodem Cards. All drivers can be downloaded from Perle’s website.
“Perle Systems PCI-RAS Multimodem cards to provide an easy to administer dial-in/dial-out solution for remote workers and customers.” comments Julie McDaniel, Vice President Marketing, Perle Systems. She adds, “With the Linux Kernel 3.x support, we are demonstrating our commitment to support our customers for the long term.”
Perle PCI-RAS cards allow users to integrate 4 or 8 modems into a server using PCI or PCI-X bus slots. They provide a simple solution coupled with high performance to deliver multiple voice, fax and data communications over V.92 56K integrated modems. The applications it can serve include Remote Access, Internet access and Fax Serving for either Windows or Unix/Linux operating systems.
New features of Linux Kernel 3.0 include: Btrfs data scrubbing and automatic defragmentation, XEN Dom0 support, unprivileged ICMP_ECHO, wake on WLAN, Berkeley Packet Filter JIT filtering, a memcached-like system for the page cache, a sendmmsg() syscall that batches sendmsg() calls and setns(), a syscall that allows better handling of light virtualization systems such as containers. New hardware support has been added: for example, Microsoft Kinect, AMD Llano Fusion APUs, Intel iwlwifi 105 and 135, Intel C600 serial-attached-scsi controller, Ralink RT5370 USB, several Realtek RTL81xx devices or the Apple iSight webcam.
