When there is a need to access serial console ports on equipment that is located in remote areas where no line based IP network is available, remote access through the use of cellular data technology is a viable solution.
IOLAN SCS Console Servers come standard with a PCI Interface Slot and are used worldwide to perform secure remote data center management and out-of-band management of IT assets. IOLAN SCS Console Servers can, with the simple customer installable addition of Perle’s USB Adapter Card, support a 3rd party wireless USB modem stick.
Using a wireless USB modem means that an IOLAN SCS Console Server installed in a location without access to Ethernet or a phone line can, with out-of-band management, allow a network administrator to obtain a reliable connection to manage and monitor remote IT assets.
When used with Perle USB Adapter Card, Perle supports 3rd party USB modem sticks from major brands used by your local wireless carrier.
