Console Servers for Out-of-Band Management (OOBM)

Perle IOLAN Console Servers provide data center managers what they need most - secure out-of-band management of routers, switches, firewalls, servers, PBXs, or any device with a serial console port. Give your IT professionals and network operations center (NOC) personnel the only serial console server product on the market with the advanced security functionality needed to easily perform secure remote data center and IT asset management of from anywhere in the world. They are also the ideal solution for large distributed enterprises with multiple branches such as banks, insurance companies, hospitals, utilities, retail, and schools, that may not have IT staff on-site. A Modular design supports RS232 RJ45 and USB 3.0 interfaces. You can also choose models with optionally integrated 4G LTE Cellular (with failback support), WiFi, or V.92 modem for multiple alternate access methods when the network is down.

Industrial Ethernet Switches

 

Industrial Ethernet Switches

Perle Industrial Ethernet Switches stand up to temperatures of -40°C to 75°C, vibrations, and shocks found in industrial automation, military, marine, rail, oil and gas, mining, and outdoor applications. With 5, 7, 8 or 10 ports Perle DIN Rail Switches have a vast array of options including 10/100/1000 Ethernet, Industrial Protocol Management support (PROFINET and Modbus TCP), PoE and fiber. PoE/PoE+ PSE capable models that are fully compliant to IEEE 802.3af/at. These rugged, yet easy to use, switches exceed the specifications of commercial switching products with industrial safety certification and approval for hazardous locations making them ideal for use in harsh environmental conditions.

 

5G & LTE Routers
5G & LTE Routers are used to minimize the cost of downtime, reduce service calls, and bring distributed sites online faster. Whether enabling secure financial transactions, or routing data in rugged outdoor environments for mass transit and industrial applications, Cellular Routers and Gateways accelerate deployment of high-performance cellular networking with secure connectivity, location-based services, and remote management. Perle IRG Cellular Routers are certified for operation on 3G, 4G LTE, & 5G bands internationally to deliver reliable LTE connectivity to any remote location or hazardous environment. Perle does not charge any annual subscription or license fees to maintain operation, download software updates, or access features.

Fiber Media Converters

 

Fiber Media Converters

Perle Fiber Media Converters easily connect fiber cabling to different types of devices, cables or networks. While linking fiber and copper together is the most common application, Fiber Media Converters also enable users to link Single Mode to Multimode or extend the data transmission distance of a Multimode network. They are the perfect solution to convert and extend various types of data signals throughout your network. If you have two devices or LANs that do not match due to different speeds, operation types, modes, or cable types, Perle has a solution for you.

 

Device Servers

Perle IOLAN Serial Device Servers connect devices with a USB, RS232, RS422, or RS485 serial interface to a local area network for transmission of serial data over Ethernet. With a physical wired Ethernet network connection on one side, and one or more serial ports on the other side, Device Servers enable network access to attached devices as if they were locally connected to the serial port. Device servers make it easy to put electronic equipment on an Ethernet network making M2M communication possible in a wide variety of applications by enabling client access independent of any operating system or proprietary protocol. While some device servers can be very simple devices, it is best practice to use a device server with advanced security functionality, data encryption, and user authentication to ensure network data transmissions, and access to network equipment, is protected.

Terminal Servers

 

Terminal Servers

A Terminal Server, also known as Serial Server, connects devices with a USB, RS232, RS422, or RS485 serial interface to a local area network for transmission of serial data over Ethernet to network server applications. The most common application for Terminal Servers is out-of-band management of routers, switches, and firewalls as an efficient way to recover equipment when the network is down. It serves as a single hardware solution for a secure alternate route to monitor IT, networking, security, and power devices from multiple vendors. Terminal Servers have physical wired or wireless (LTE or WiFi) network connection on one side, and one or more serial ports on the other side.

 

Ethernet Copper Extenders

When you need to extend Ethernet services beyond the general IEEE 802.3 limits of 328ft (100m), and new fiber cabling is cost prohibitive, Ethernet Extenders are the perfect solution. Perle Ethernet Extenders transparently extend 10/100/1000 Ethernet connections across copper wiring. Use single twisted pair (CAT5/6/7/8), coax or any existing copper wiring previously used in alarm circuits, E1/T1 circuits, RS-232, RS-422, RS-485, CCTV and CATV applications.
