Overview

For secure serial to Ethernet connectivity applications,
the IOLAN SDG Device Server is the most advanced compact product available on the market today.
Delivering high performance in a compact size, an IOLAN SDG offers extensive security, flexibility and next generation
IPv6 technology making it ideal for applications that require remote device/console management, data capture or monitoring. IOLAN Serial Device Servers are also available with an integrated V.92 modem, support for Power over Ethernet (PoE), Class 1 Division 2 or Extended Temperature ranges.

Why IOLAN SDG Device Servers are the preferred choice:

  • Powerful processors for the best throughput and performance on the market
  • 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 SDG 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 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.

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.

IOLAN Plug-ins

By choosig a Perle IOLAN 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. In the unlikely event that the Perle IOLAN Device Server does not enable this out of the box, Perle will make
it work
.

Perle IOLAN Device Servers utilize customer installable “Device
Plug-ins
” to successfully network devices where other solutions have failed. Request

Advanced IP Technology

With support for Next Generation IP (IPv6) the IOLAN Serial to Ethernet Device Server range
provides organizations with investment protection to meet
this rapidly growing standard.

Demand for IPv6, which is compatible with IPv4 addressing schemes, is driven by the
need for more IP address. With the implementation and rollout
of advanced cellular networks, a robust method is needed to handle
the huge influx of new IP addressable devices on the Internet.
In fact, the US Department of Defense has mandated that all equipment purchased be IPv6 compatible. In addition, all major Operating Systems such as Windows, Linux, Unix and Solaris, as well
as routers, have built-in support for IPv6.

It is therefore important for end users and integrators
to select networking equipment that incorporates the IPv6
standard. The IOLAN line with support for IPv6 already built
in, is the best choice in serial to Ethernet technology.

Flexible and Reliable Serial to Ethernet Connections

An IOLAN SDG Device Server is ideal for connecting serial based COM port,
UDP or TCP socket based applications to remote devices. Perle’s TruePort re-director provides fixed TTY or
COM ports to serial based applications enabling communication with remote
devices connected to Perle IOLAN’s either in encrypted
or clear text modes. You can also tunnel serial data between
devices across an IP network.

Perle’s Device Management software provides better
centralized control of multiple units resulting in maximum
uptime for your remote equipment.

All IOLAN SDG models have added protection against electrostatic discharges and power surges with robust 15Kv ESD protection
circuitry enabling organizations to utilize this solution
in the field with confidence.

Lifetime Warranty

All Perle IOLAN SDG Serial to Ethernet Device Servers 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.

Application Diagrams

TCP

Using RAW TCP Sockets

A raw TCP socket connection which can be initiated from the serial-Ethernet device or from the remote host/server. This can either be on a point to point or shared basis where a serial device can be shared amongst multiple devices. TCP sessions can be initiated either from the TCP server application or from thePerle IOLAN serial-Ethernet adapter.

diagram-tcp
 
UDP

Using Raw UDP Sockets

For use with UDP based applications, Perle IOLANs can convert serial equipment data for transport across UDP packets either on a point to point basis or shared across multiple devices.

diagram-udp
 
Console Server

Console Management

For access to remote console ports on routers, switches,etc, Perle IOLAN’s enable administrators secure access to these RS232 ports via inband Reverse Telnet / SSH or out of band with dial-up modems. Perle IOLAN models with integrated modems are available.

diagram console
 
COM/TTY

Connect Serial-based Applications with a COM/TTY Port Driver

Serial ports can be connected to network servers or workstations running Perle’s TruePort software operating as a virtual COM port. Sessions can be initiated either from the Perle IOLAN or from TruePort.

diagram com tty
 
Tunneling

Serial Tunneling between two Serial Devices

Serial Tunneling enables you to establish a link across Ethernet to a serial port on another IOLAN. Both IOLAN serial ports must be configured for Serial Tunneling (typically one serial port is configured as a Tunnel Server and the other serial port as a Tunnel Client).

diagram tunneling
 
Virtual Modem

Virtual Modem

Enables the serial-Ethernet adapter to simulate a modem connection. When connected to the IOLAN and initiates a modem connection, the IOLAN starts up a TCP connection to another IOLAN serial-Ethernet adapter configured with a Virtual Modem serial port or to a host running a TCP application.
