Perle Systems, a manufacturer of device networking hardware, has launched IOLAN Firmware v6 for all IOLAN SCG Console Servers to enhance secure Out-of-Band-Management capabilities.
Perle Systems added new functionality that includes full routing capabilities with support for RIP, OSPF, and BGP protocols, Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP), two-factor authentication (2FA), integrated firewall, and advanced failover to multiple networks.
“This firmware upgrade for the IOLAN SCGs was designed with remote access monitoring and provisioning at its core. When deployed top-of-rack, or at remote locations, network engineers will have secure access to all equipment, as well as automated provisioning of configuration and firmware files,” says John Feeney, COO at Perle Systems.
The optionally integrated Wi-Fi, V.92 modem, and 4G LTE provide multiple alternate access methods to manage, maintain and troubleshoot critical network devices, as well as transmit data from mission-critical equipment over LTE and wireless LAN networks.
Network administrators can use Perle’s cloud-based centralized management solution to put their IT infrastructure into a single application for 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 SCG has built-in fault-tolerant capabilities. Redundant Path technology assures availability to Console Management ports through Active Standby or Dual Network Access modes. Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRPv3) enables a group of devices to form a single virtual device to provide network redundancy. The dual AC power supply ensures that console management is available even if the primary power source fails.
With advanced network security features, recognized authentication schemes, and leading-edge data encryption tools, IT administrators can feel confident that network data transmissions, and all access to the console management ports on IT equipment, is secure. This makes the IOLAN SCG Console Servers an ideal out of band management solution for IT equipment located in data centers or remote locations.
All Perle IOLAN Console Servers use high-end components to ensure product reliability. Perle offers a Lifetime Warranty to guarantee user satisfaction.
