perle.com /products/iolan-sds-lte-device-server.shtml
Serial over 4G LTE and other WAN Cellular Networks
High-Speed 4G LTE with fallback networks - HSPA+, UMTS, EDGE and
GPRS/GSM
1, 2 or 4 software selectable RS232/422/485 serial port interfaces
Gigabit Ethernet ( 10/100/1000 Base-T )
Advanced security features for data encryption, user authentication and event
management
The IOLAN SDS L Serial Device Server provides High-Speed serial data
transmission over 4G LTE cellular networks. The IoT and M2M drives the desire to
connect serial base ( RS232, RS422 and RS485 ) devices like PLC’s, meters,
sensors, modems, POS, printers and industrial equipment to remote serial based
COM port, UDP or TCP socket based applications. However, these devices are often
located where hardwired Ethernet connections are not available. With the proliferation of cellular networks, and
affordable data packages around the world, the means to transmit that data just got easier.
Delivering high performance in a compact size, the IOLAN SDS L offers support for a broad range of 4G LTE
cellular data networks, extensive security, flexibility and IPv6 technology making it ideal for applications that
require remote serial console management, data capture or monitoring.
Why IOLAN SDS L Device Servers are the preferred choice:
High performance 4G LTE with fallback networks - HSPA+, UMTS, EDGE and GPRS
Cellular data speeds up to 100Mbps
High-Speed Gigabit Ethernet 1000base-T interface including support for 100base-TX and 10base-T
Direct serial to serial peer connection over cellular data networks
Remote equipment console management over cellular data networks.
Redundant dual power inputs ( barrel and terminal block )
TrueSerial® packet technology delivers authentic serial connections for 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
IPv6 support 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 unresponsive networking gear
Secure Serial over Cellular Connectivity
The IOLAN SDS L Device Server enables administrators to securely access remote serial console ports on
equipment such as PBX, servers, routers, network storage equipment and security appliances via a cellular data
1/12
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, the IOLAN SDS L 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 choosing 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 a free engineering consultation now.
Advanced IP Technology
With support for IPv6 the IOLAN Serial 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 LTE and cellular
technology.
Flexible and Reliable Serial Connections
An IOLAN SDS L Device Server is ideal for wirelessly 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 a cellular network.
Perle's Device Management software provides better centralized control of multiple units resulting in maximum
uptime for your remote equipment.
All IOLAN SDS L 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 Serial 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

TCP
Using RAW TCP Sockets over a Cellular Data Network
A raw TCP socket connection can be initiated from the serial 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 SDS L.
UDP
Using Raw UDP Sockets over a Cellular Data Network
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
10/12
Console Management over a Cellular Data Network
For access to remote console ports on routers, switches, etc, Perle IOLAN’s enable administrators secure
access to these RS232 ports via in-band Reverse Telnet / SSH over wireless LANs
COM/TTY
Connect Serial-based Applications over cellular data network 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.
Serial Tunneling over a Cellular Data Network
11/12
Serial Tunneling between two Serial Devices over a cellular data network - Peer to Peer
Serial Tunneling enables you to establish a link across a cellular netowrk 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).
