IOLAN SDS device servers enable 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). With support for Next Generation IP ( IPv6 ), the IOLAN SDS provides organizations with the investment protection today to meet the compatibility needs of networks tomorrow. The IOLAN SDS is ideal for connecting serial based COM port, UDP or TCP socket based applications to remote devices. Perle s TruePort V5 re-director provides fixed TTY or COM ports to serial based applications enabling communication with remote devices connected to Perle device servers either in encrypted or clear text modes. You can also tunnel serial data between devices across an IP network.
