Perle Systems Announces Support for Additional Wireless WAN Cellular Cards

IOLAN SCS Console Servers provide reliable out-of-band management with Perle’s Cellular Card Driver support

NASHVILLE, TN—August 19, 2008— Perle Systems, the global developer and manufacturer of serial to Ethernet connectivity solutions today announced support for two additional cellular cards on the IOLAN SCS Console Servers. Perle already provides support for several cellular cards and is pleased to addThe Sierra Wireless AirCard 881 and the Sony Ericsson PC300 to the list.

“Perle has more and more users who located equipment in remote areas where line based IP network access is not readily available,” says Julie McDaniel, Vice President Marketing for Perle Systems. “Perle technology utilizes the extensive cellular digital network to provide an extremely cost effective and reliable solution to manage and monitor IT assets remotely.”

IOLAN SCS Console Servers come standard with a PCI Interface and are used worldwide to perform secure remote data center management and out-of-band management of IT assets. Perle’s optional PC Card Adapter enables the use of 3rd party PC (PCMCIA) cards.  Third party cellular cards from Sierra and Sony are commonly used with the IOLAN SCS. Supporting these cellular cards means an IOLAN SCS user without access to Ethernet or a phone line for a modem can, with out-of-band management, obtain a fast reliable connection to remote IT assets in order to manage and monitor them. Perle also supports the Sierra Wireless AirCard 860 and the Sony Ericsson GC83.
