- port EIA232/422/485 Remote Access Server
The IOLAN SDS 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.
Backed with the experience of connecting hundreds of thousands of different devices to Ethernet over the years, using a Perle 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.
With support for Next Generation IP (IPv6) the IOLAN range provides organizations with investment protection to meet this rapidly growing standard.
An IOLAN SDS is capable of pseudo connections to servers via Telnet, Rlogin, UDP or TCP socket based applications to remote devices. Where a server’s application needs to access a fixed TTY or COM ports, Perle’s TruePort software supplied with each device server performs COM port redirection across IP networks to remote Perle device servers either in encrypted or clear text modes.
Centralized control and management of multiple deployments is maintained through Perle’s Device Manager software resulting in maximum uptime for your remote equipment.
Protection against electrostatic discharges and power surges is provided on all IOLAN SDS models with its robust 15Kv ESD protection circuitry enabling organizations to utilize this solution in the field with confidence.
