The Opengear ACM5000 enables efficient management all the infrastructure at your local or remote site — from servers through networking equipment, power supplies, security cameras, door sensors, temperature & humidity monitoring and digital I/O sensing. The Smart OOB™ enabled Opengear ACM5000 remote site manager delivers secure remote monitoring, access and control of distributed networks and remote sites, delivering complete and uninterrupted out-of-band management of critical equipment.
The ACM5000 deploys alongside distributed IT, network and power infrastructure, providing always-available secure remote access, true out-of-band management, proactive monitoring and smart automated response capabilities. The result is rapid problem resolution and a drastic reduction in the need for expensive on-site technical visits.
Smart OOB™ for advanced out-of-band management
Maintain complete control during infrastructure fault conditions and network outages with serial, Ethernet and USB connectivity to critical infrastructure management consoles. Monitor infrastructure status as well as environmental conditions and physical sensors. Detect water ingress and physical tampering in remote cabinets with digital I/O sensor ports. Smart alert escalation through SNMP, email and direct SMS — extend the reach of Nagios or SolarWinds NMS and respond before a catastrophe. Automatically detect and recover from common causes of network outages including device misconfiguration and lock up. Smart OOB™ minimizes mean-time-to-repair and increases efficiency.
Multi-vendor, multi-device management
ACM5000 supports the widest array of network, IT and power infrastructure and vendors. Manage firewalls, switches, routers and WAN optimization via RJ45 or DB9 serial console, or Ethernet management interfaces. Vendor-neutral power management support for UPS and switched PDUs enables complete out-of-band power control and hotkey power cycling from inside the console management session.
Solutions for Cisco® installs
Immediate access to any Cisco device at any time from anywhere, with ACM5000's integrated serial and USB console server. Simple straight-through Cat 5 cabling to Cisco-style RS-232 consoles of remote routers, switches, security appliances and other network equipment — no special cables, no adapters. Detect console warnings and errors, break into ROMmon for remote provisioning and recovery. Built in TFTP server stores and serves IOS images, running configuration and offline logs.
Transparent failover and failback
The Opengear ACM5000 has a built-in 3G cellular or dial-up modem with smart failover features for improving reliability of network connectivity at remote sites. Failover to Cellular™ using reliable IP Passthrough technology provides continued Internet connectivity over high speed 3G networks and increases business continuity. Smart failover can also operate between dial-up PSTN, cellular and network interfaces to ensure out-of-band access to your IT devices is always available. This enables problems to be remediated promptly and remotely — without the need for on-site visits.
Features and Benefits
Maintain complete control during infrastructure fault conditions and network outages with serial, Ethernet and USB connectivity to critical infrastructure management consoles. Built-in dial-in or cellular modem provides secure alternate path for trouble-shooting and repair. Monitors and controls virtually everything that affects uptime, including the physical environment. Proactive problem identification, quick notification and automated remediation reduces operating costs and improves MTBF and MTTR.
Increase reliability of your network at remote sites and in data centers with integrated failover to 3G cellular. Combine with out-of-band access and monitoring of network devices for rapid remediation of problems and increased IT resilience. Minimize disruption and downtime with transparent, automatic failover to cellular — and failback. No manual intervention, and costs are minimized with connectivity watchdog and data usage monitoring.
Fast to provision, simple to deploy and fully integrated into ACM5000. Always-available, high-performance remote access over the 3G network. Minimize costs with connectivity watchdog, Failover to Cellular™ and data usage monitoring. Out-of-band access and monitoring of all of the devices at remote sites even when behind firewalls or the primary network connection is impaired.
Leverage total remote site monitoring and connectivity to detect and respond to issues before they become outages. Power cycle unresponsive equipment, back-up and restore known good device configurations. Time-based alert escalation during protracted outages reduces the cost and incidence of false alarms. Reduce mean-time-to-repair, detect and alert on faults and outages, meet SLAs and reduce downtime with remote and auto-remediation.
Lock down management interfaces with local and remote AAA including Active Directory, Kerberos, TACACS+ and RADIUS with RSA SecurID. Encrypt sensitive management traffic with IPsec and OpenVPN. Simple, secure console access via your preferred SSH client or HTTPS AJAX web terminal. Provides persistent enforcement of corporate security policies by using secure access to all managed services and devices.
Monitor UPS battery status, automate routine maintenance and load testing. Control PDU outlets via serial, USB and Ethernet. Enforce remote power permissions and map managed consoles to outlets, minimize MTTR with manual and automatic remote power control. Uniquely supports over 100 power vendors' equipment.
Stand alone, complete remote management solution in one box. Cost effective with rapid ROI. Spec into standard network build as an inexpensive safety net. Reduce IT costs by equipping central operations teams with always-available, low-level remote control of IT, network, UPS and PDU systems. More features out of the box, with extensible root-level scripting access and custom development kit for specialized applications.
Onboard storage accelerates initial network provisioning while out-of-band access enables remote maintenance and disaster recovery. Extend best practice management from the data center and NOC to remote sites, with per-port user & group AAA, access logs & audit trail.
Accelerate deployment, increase efficiency and reduce errors with Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) enabling automated provisioning and configuration of newly deployed Opengear appliances over the network, without manual interaction. Extend ACM5000 with Opengear Lighthouse central management to manage up to 5,000 remote installs.
