Opengear Powers InteropNET NOC 2012
We have been selected for the second year in a row by UBM TechWeb’s InteropNet’s NOC team to provide our IM4200 product family of console servers to monitor and manage Interop’s show network. Our Interop activities include managing the Interop show network. We manage the out-of-band access for device configuration and troubleshooting for the Interop NOC, show floor and off-show floor production infrastructure, including:
- Logging configuration history for operators to use in forensic/diagnostic situations.
- Providing a secondary secure wireless/cellular connection to key racks in the unlikely event of an out-of-band network outage. Uptime, redundancy and fault tolerance were key factors in designing the Interop NOC network and the Opengear solution can be used for emergency recovery or equipment configuration access in situations where a network device malfunctions and needs to be bypassed.
- We designed our portion of the Internet NOC remote infrastructure management architecture to be set up and torn down very quickly, since it is a temporary event network.
At InteropNET Las Vegas we had the chance to showcase our cellular out-of-band access and centralized management capabilities in the NOC. We look forward to Interop New York this fall October 1-5, 2012.
