Immediate access to any Cisco device at any time from anywhere with Smart OOB™

Maintaining a distributed infrastructure requires immediate access to any device on the network at any time from any place in the world. Providing this remote access securely and reliably becomes increasingly complex with the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), M2M and cloud computing. Traditional out-of-band management solutions with basic console access no longer support these critical needs.

Opengear’s Smart OOB™ was architected with Cisco management in mind, to deliver remote troubleshooting and remediation at the edge and minimize disruption. Smart OOB™ raises secure remote access and infrastructure management to a new level. With everything monitored at the edge, including the physical environment, auto response and remediation and Failover to Cellular™, uninterrupted availability for remote networks is ensured, saving time and money.
