For secure serial to Ethernet connectivity applications, the IOLAN SDS Device Server is the most advanced compact product available on the market today. Delivering high performance in a compact size, an IOLAN SDS offers extensive security, flexibility and next generation IPv6 technology making it ideal for applications that require remote device/console management, data capture or monitoring. IOLAN Serial Device Servers are also available with an integrated V.92 modem, support for Power over Ethernet (PoE), Class 1 Division 2 or Extended Temperature ranges. Why IOLAN SDS Device Servers are the preferred choice: Powerful processors for the best throughput and performance on the market TrueSerial® packet technology delivers the most authentic serial connections across Ethernet for serial protocol integrity Indicators for network and serial interfaces for easy troubleshooting Plug & Play installation utility eliminates configuration hassles for all IOLAN's on your IP network TruePort - Perle's com/tty redirector for serial based applications operates on Windows, Vista, Linux, Solaris, SCO and Unix FIPS 140-2 - Cryptographic modules meet US Government NIST compliancy Power over serial cable eliminates costs of a separate power installation Next Generation IP support ( IPv6 ) for investment protection and network compatibility Compact and protective solid steel enclosure for tabletop, wall mount or DIN rail mounting Java-free browser access to remote serial console ports via Telnet and SSH Ping watchdog probes enable customers to power cycle equipment with attached Perle RPS power switches in the event of an unresponsive networking gear Secure Serial to Ethernet Connectivity The IOLAN SDS Device Server enables administrators to securely access remote serial console ports on equipment such as PBX, servers, routers, network storage equipment and security appliances through an IP network. Sensitive data such as credit card holder information is protected through standard encryption tools such as Secure Shell (SSH) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Access by authorized users is assured via authentication schemes such as RADIUS, TACACS+, LDAP, Kerberos, NIS and RSA Security's SecurID tokens. By using encryption technologies, an IOLAN can protect sensitive and confidential data from a serial device such as a credit card reader before being sent across a corporate Intranet or public Internet. For compatibility with peer encryption devices, all of the major encryption ciphers such as AES, 3DES, RC4, RC2 and CAST128 are fully supported. Recognized as the most secure method for communicating to remote private networks over the Internet, the IPSec standard provides robust authentication and encryption of IP packets at the network layer of the OSI model. As a standard it is ideal for multi-vendor interoperation within a network providing flexibility and the ability to match the right solution for a particular application. IOLAN Plug-ins By choosig a Perle IOLAN Device Server you can rest assured that virtually any device with a serial COM port will operate in conjunction with your desired application exactly as it did when you had it directly connected. In the unlikely event that the Perle IOLAN Device Server does not enable this out of the box, Perle will make it work.
