How the Presidio Exchange Forum 2014 Learned About Cellular Out-Of-Band Failover: Opengear's Joe Valha recently participated in the Presidio Exchange 2014 forum, an event focused on training and knowledge transfer for Presidio engineering and sales teams and key partners. In-depth sessions and hands-on labs made this an extremely valuable event and we were glad our participation could help improve the understanding about how cellular improves on existing out-of-band management solutions.

Embedded Cellular vs External Dongles - Don't Get Left Hanging: You wouldn't use an acoustic coupler modem to connect your enterprise network to the Internet, so why would you use an external dongle for out-of-band management? While 4G/LTE speeds that are as much as 1,000 times faster than dial-up is a good reason to consider moving to cellular out-of-band management, there are so many additional benefits that come with a device that has cellular built-in.

NEW INFOGRAPHIC! Out-Of-Band Management Delivers Business Resilience: Network downtime is frustrating and very costly to millions of businesses all over the world. Out-of-band management systems mitigate the costs and frustrations of IT downtime.
