IOLAN SCS Console Server
perle.com /products/iolan-scs-terminal-server.shtml
8, 16, 32 or 48 RS-232 serial port interfaces
Dual 10/100/1000 Ethernet support with Redundant Path Technology
PCI Slot for integrated out-of-band access
Advanced AAA security and encryption to meet all data center
compliance policies
IOLAN SCS Console Servers have a truly fault tolerant design to minimize downtime and provide reliable,
secure remote device management. With built-in dual Ethernet and Redundant Path technology the IOLAN
SCS provides assured serial console port access, offering the most reliable solution for managing data center
and remote branch equipment… all at the best price performance.
Why IOLAN SCS Console Servers are the preferred choice:
High performance 400 MHz, 750 MIPS, 32 bit processor with integrated hardware encryption processor
for the best throughput
Clustering – Provides a single view of all out of band console ports. Ideal for large data centers
Intelligent Power cycling of equipment with Perle Remote Power Switches
Next Generation IP support (IPv6) for investment protection and network compatibility
Primary/Backup host functionality enables automatic connections to alternate hosts should the primary
TCP connection go down
EasyPort Web – Access equipment serial console ports by using your java-enabled Internet browser
FIPS 140-2 – Cryptographic modules meet US Government NIST compliancy
Dynamic DNS – Easy console management access from anywhere on the Internet
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
Lifetime warranty – best investment protection available
Secure Serial Console Management
IOLAN SCS Console 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. Data management 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 Console Server protects sensitive and confidential data 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.
High Availability Access
The IOLAN SCS has built-in fault tolerant capabilities to ensure secure and reliable access for managing
important mission critical equipment. Dual Ethernet interfaces on the IOLAN SCS provide redundant network
paths while dual AC power supply models ensure that console management is available even if the primary AC
power source fails. For remote administrators that require access from home, on the road or in the event of a
total network failure, an optional IOLAN V.92 modem card delivers a solid, integrated solution with direct phone
line attachment via its onboard RJ11 jack.
Protection against electrostatic discharges and power surges is provided with robust 15Kv ESD protection
circuitry on each serial port.
Advanced IP Technology
With support for Next Generation IP (IPv6) the IOLAN 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.
Lifetime Warranty
All Perle IOLAN SCS 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.

*Calculation model based on MIL-HDBK-217-FN2 @ 30 °C
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 the
Perle IOLAN serial-Ethernet adapter.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
