First it provides Smart Out-of-Band Management of your entire IT infrastructure and second it provides back up VAN or backup internet connectivity at your remote sites via its in-built cellular connection. This combination of Smart Out-of-Band and failover to cellular, not only reduces network outages at your enterprise remote sites but it also helps you recover efficiently and quickly from any infrastructure failures. Thus providing you high levels of network resilience at remote sites.

In response to these external conditions, the script can send administrators an immediate alert or can do some remedial action to take care of the situation.
