Government agency networks are geographically dispersed. To ensure that systems are able to be accessed despite their location, agencies need a secure solution. Using Failover to Cellular™ and Smart Out-of-Band, redundant back up access is enabled to preserve the bandwidth needed for the primary network.
Smart Out-of-Band allows government agencies to manage systems, devices and equipment remotely. If an outage occurs, they are able to identify and resolve the issues quickly.

Failover to Cellular provides connectivity for remote LANs using 4G LTE when the primary link is unavailable. If during a deployment an outage occurs, always on access is ensured.

Opengear solutions ensure that Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) are adhered to. Published by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and specific to cryptographic modules, FIPS 140-2 are security requirements that cover 11 areas related to design.
All Opengear devices have been tested and validated by US and Canadian governments ensuring that they meet 140-2 requirements.
Having partnered with OSSI and the OpenSSL projects, Opengear sponsors an extension of the OpenSSL Object Module v1.2 validation, ensuring that it meets the FIPS 140-2 standards for ARM processors. Embedded FIPS 140-2 OpenSSL cryptographic modules located in Opengear devices have been validated to meet the FIPS 140-2 standards and have received certificate #1051. When using SSH, HTTPS or SDT Connector to connect any service on the console servers when in FIPS mode, government agencies will be using the FIPS compliant module. All Opengear also meet the requirements of the Trade Agreements Act.
Opengear products can be purchased on US Federal government acquisition contracts through Synnex or Ingram.
IoT has empowered government agencies to deliver services more timely and reduce operating costs by collecting real time data. The potential for IoT in government continues to grow, already being deployed in a variety of ways. Sensors are attached to military vehicles to monitor assets and view what’s occurring on the ground. State departments are using weather tracking solutions to make road treatment decisions. The airforce is attaching sensors to aircrafts to better view battle information. These IoT solutions are beneficial however create security and regulation challenges.
Opengear solutions enable government organizations to use these IoT solutions and provide secure access.
