The Network for Network Engineers

When you rely on your Production Network to manage that same network, you end up with costly disruptions when outages occur, as well as unnecessary security risks. To be truly resilient, companies need a management plane built for more than emergency use: a separate, independent Management Network that is used to configure and manage network devices and services.

This white paper discusses how an independent management network for network engineers facilitates everyday configuration management, secure access during network outages, and NetOps automation.

Download our whitepaper to:

  • Understand the risks of relying on the Production Network for everyday management tasks
  • Learn how an independent management plane enhances network security
  • Recognize the network management challenges of work from home, edge locations, and IoT
  • Understand how an independent management network supports NetOps automation

Connecting Your Customers (MSP White Paper)

Enterprises rely on Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to provide constant uptime. To meet the growing needs of customers, MSPs require advanced tools that can monitor devices remotely, from a wide range of vendors. Not being able to provide the proper management, monitoring, and reporting expected by customers can lead to lost revenue as well as decreased customer retention.

This white paper will explore the challenges of MSPs and provide solutions on how to ensure network resilience with an independent management plane.

Download our whitepaper to:

  • Learn about challenges that can occur when managing multiple networks
  • Understand the top reasons why customers switch MSP vendors
  • Ensure network uptime and differentiate offerings

Research Commentary: Measuring the True Cost of Network Outages

Discover the networking issues that are keeping 500 senior IT decision-makers awake at night, in this new independent research commissioned by Opengear.

A resilient network is vital to the success of almost every organization. Whenever it is not available, productivity drops off, the business is financially impacted, and its reputation suffers. Organizations are adding layers of complexity to networks and that often results in more vulnerabilities.

Key findings from the new research highlighted that improving network resilience was the #1 priority for nearly half (49%) of respondents, while nearly a third (31%) have lost more than $1 million in the past 12 months due to network outages.

Download this research commentary today and discover how your organization could benefit from huge time & cost savings by building a resilient network:

  • Explore why downtime happens
  • Understand why network resilience is the solution
  • Discover what benefits Out-of-Band and NetOps bring
  • Look at ways to address the network downtime challenge

White Paper: Why You Need Out-of-Band Management

System outages can result from cyberattacks, human error, or any number of environmental conditions. A wide range of network elements can also cause outages. Cable interconnects, power supplies, switches, dense compute chassis, storage arrays, and even air conditioning are potential sources of problems. And network devices are only increasing in complexity, with software stacks that are frequently updated and susceptible to bugs, exploits, and cyberattacks.

If your primary network becomes unavailable, do all parts of your network, from data centers and branches to edge networks and IoT devices, have connection resilience? As your business grows, your network becomes increasingly complex and new deployments or acquisitions may lack the ability to connect seamlessly through the internet.

Reading this white paper you will learn:

  • What can cause an outage
  • The difference between In-Band and Out-of-Band management
  • Advancements made with Out-of-Band management console servers

Looking to the Edge

Enterprises have become increasingly data-driven creating a need to expand outside of the traditional data center, at the edge. Edge computing has played a prominent role in IoT deployments with its ability to mitigate latency associated with the cloud, ensure the latest developments are available to enterprises and capture data in real-time. As organizations continue to add more critical applications at the edge, they must be able to match the resilience, scalability and high availability found in the data center.

This white paper discusses the proper solutions to deploy at the edge to ensure network resilience needs are met.

Download this white paper to:

  • Understand the key benefits of edge computing
  • Address areas of weakness with added intelligence
  • Learn about SD-WAN deployments at the edge

Why You Need Out-of-Band Management (White Paper)

Las interrupciones del sistema pueden ser el resultado de ataques cibernéticos, errores humanos o cualquier cantidad de condiciones ambientales. Una amplia gama de elementos de red también puede causar interrupciones. Las interconexiones de cables, las fuentes de alimentación, los conmutadores, el chasis de computación denso, las matrices de almacenamiento e incluso el aire acondicionado son posibles fuentes de problemas. Y los dispositivos de red solo están aumentando en complejidad, con pilas de software que se actualizan con frecuencia y son susceptibles a errores, exploits y ataques cibernéticos.

Si su red principal no está disponible, ¿todas las partes de su red, desde centros de datos y sucursales hasta redes periféricas y dispositivos IoT, tienen resistencia de conexión? A medida que su negocio crece, su red se vuelve cada vez más compleja y las nuevas implementaciones o adquisiciones pueden carecer de la capacidad de conectarse sin problemas a través de Internet.

Al leer este documento, aprenderá:

  • ¿Qué puede causar una interrupción?
  • La diferencia entre la gestión dentro y fuera de banda
  • Avances realizados con servidores de consola de administración fuera de banda

Building Network Resilience

White paper: Building Network Resilience

Network Resilience: Keeping the network running at the core and out to the edge of the infrastructure, with no disruption to the customer experience in the event of human error, external issues or hardware failures.

Network outages have a direct impact on an organization’s revenue, customer retention and brand. Network resilience plays an important role in ensuring business continuity. When the network is down, money can be lost, productivity can be stunted and data security can be at risk.

Achieve true network resilience, when an organization is able to maintain services, remove points of failure and has an understanding of how to bring the network back up during a disruption.

  • Why network resilience is important
  • How to get support from top leadership
  • The most important factors in building a resilient network

SD-WAN & Out-of-Band: A Smart Solution (White Paper)

Modern networks are utilizing Software-Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) to increase flexibility, reduce costs and secure connections of standard broadband. Providing the ability to dynamically choose the most efficient traffic route, SD-WAN routers are more sophisticated requiring more firmware updates which can create more opportunities for challenges to arise.

This whitepaper delves into the benefits and challenges of SD-WAN and how Smart Out-of-Band (Smart OOB™) can be used to minimize truck rolls, decrease disruptions and address points of failure to provide organizations with enterprise-grade WAN.

 

This whitepaper discusses:
  • Reducing downtime by using Smart OOB access to detect outages immediately allowing staff to bring the network back up as soon as possible.
  • Allowing for always-on access by Smart OOB to rapidly identify and remediate issues between dispersed internet-connected devices and remote infrastructure.
  • Providing cellular OOB with a connection independent of the data path.
