Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Opengear (www.opengear.com), provider of next generation console server and remote management solutions today announced that SSi, a recognized leader in the field of remote and rural connectivity and the largest ISP in Northern Canada, is using Opengear products to remotely access devices across its large network, which covers almost a third of Canada’s landmass. 

SSi is a recognized leader in providing remote and rural Internet connectivity to some of the harshest climates on Earth. SSi delivers broadband Internet via an advanced satellite delivery platform, as well as local distribution services using licensed and unlicensed wireless technologies. 

“Opengear provides us a unique, secure remote console access to our equipment including Cisco devices, satellite modems and environmental monitors,” said Erik Sejr, Satellite Network Tech at SSi. “With its open source license, Opengear doesn’t charge us ongoing licensing fees despite their constant software development. The scale of their 48 port console server allows us to have access to pretty much everything with one unit.”

“SSi came to Opengear because of our ability to provide industry-leading functionality, flexibility and security in our next generation console servers,” commented Todd Rychecky, vice president of sales and marketing, Opengear North America. “They continue to do business with us because we are a trusted partner and the quality of our support.”
