The IOLAN SDST Device Servers address the need for connecting remote serial devices that operate in extreme temperatures to an enterprise IP network. The IOLAN SDST will operate in industrial grade temperatures the parameters of which are -40F to +165F (-40C to +74C). Serial based equipment found with traffic management, oil and gas pipelines, weather tracking and other remote applications must function in temperatures that cannot be supported by commercial based serial device servers. Boasting this extended temperature feature along with a rugged steel casing, the IOLAN SDST enables administrators to securely access remote serial console ports on equipment subjected to harsh environments and severe temperatures such as security cameras, alarms, traffic controllers, sensors and tracking devices through an IP network. Why IOLAN SDST Device Servers are the preferred choice: Powerful processors for the best throughput and performance on the market Operation in environments requiring extended ambient operating temperatures on -40C to +74C (-40F to +165F). 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 SDST 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 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 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.
