Console Management for IT assets
The IOLAN SCR1618 Console Server supports Ethernet and RS232 RJ45 connectivity to console ports on equipment such as Cisco, Juniper, HP, routers, switches, firewalls, servers, PBXs, network storage equipment, and security appliances through an IP network. The RS232 RJ45 ports are software configurable to use straight thru or rolled cables to connect your Cisco equipment. In addition, a DCD pin can be configured for 3rd party devices that need this extra signal. This means the Perle IOLAN SCR supports more serial devices than any other Console Server on the market. This makes it an ideal out of band management solution for IT equipment located in data centers or remote sites.
Advanced Network Security, Authentication, and Data Encryption
2 Factor Authentication (2FA) ensures access to equipment and data is limited to authorized users, while remote authentication (RADIUS, TACACS+, & LDAP) management, enables integration with enterprise-grade systems to control access to devices in the field.
The built-in firewall offers intuitive policies to protect inside networks from unauthorized access. The firewall also allows inside networks to be separated from each other. If there are network resources that need to be available to an outside user, such as a web or FTP server, these resources can be placed on a separate network behind the firewall in a demilitarized zone (DMZ).
Network data transmissions and access to remote console admin ports on IT equipment are protected through standard encryption tools such as Secure Shell (SSH) and Secure Sockets Layer (TLS/SSL). By using encryption technologies, an IOLAN SCR Console Server protects sensitive and confidential data before being sent across a corporate Intranet or public Internet. For compatibility with peer encryption devices, all the major encryption ciphers such as AES, 3DES, RC4, RC2, and CAST128 are fully supported.
With multiple concurrent VPN sessions, OpenVPN, and IPSec VPN, robust authentication and encryption of IP packets is provided at the network layer of the OSI model. This is ideal for multi-vendor interoperation within a network, providing flexibility and the ability to match the right solution for a particular application.
High Availability Access
To simplify management and respond swiftly to issues, network administrators require access to all console ports via a single portal view. Perle’s cloud-based centralized management solution puts all your network and IT infrastructure into a single application and provides secure reliable access and visibility during normal operations and critical network failures. Scalable to suit any business requirement, Cloud Centralized Management reduces human error and guarantees repeatability.
The IOLAN SCR has built-in fault-tolerant capabilities to ensure secure and reliable access for managing important mission-critical equipment. With 18 x Routing / Switching Ethernet interfaces, the IOLAN SCR provides multiple redundant network paths to ensure that console management access is available even if part of the network is down. The dual AC power supply ensures that console management is available even if the primary AC power source fails.
Protection against electrostatic discharges and power surges is provided with robust 15Kv ESD protection circuitry on each console port.
All Perle IOLAN SCR models are backed by the best service and support in the industry including Perle’s unique lifetime warranty. Since 1976 Perle has been providing its customers with networking products that have the highest levels of performance, flexibility, and quality. With the Perle IOLAN SCR deploying and upgrading new services and equipment while minimizing capital expenditures, is easy.
