Perle Systems Technical Note
IOLAN SCS Fiber Card Support
For those applications that require a direct fiber connection to their console / terminal server, the IOLAN SCS has support for a 3rd party gigabit fiber card via its standard PCI Interface.
This is ideal for enterprises that wish to deploy a fiber based out-of-band management network to manage remote equipment via their serial console ports.
Having an integrated fiber card installed in an IOLAN offers superior reliability over competitive console servers that require an external Ethernet copper to fiber converter box in order to connect to the fiber infrastructure.
