That's right, now you can really ditch those costly POTS lines and dial-up modems used as a patch whenever the primary network goes down and you can enjoy the complete high-speed out-of-band experience that only Opengear 4G LTE enabled cellular devices can provide.

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.

Top Three Reasons to Adopt Cellular Out-Of-Band Management Solutions: Ensuring up-time and system availability are key benchmarks for the IT department of just about every organization, and if they aren't they should be. By adopting cellular out-of-band management solutions, organizations can expect to realize at least three major core benefits, and probably a lot more.

RISK UK State of Ultimate Dependence (Pages 34-35)
Remote site management systems can monitor physical environments, detect security breaches, control access to a site, provide an audit trail and alert security and risk managers within seconds about any signs of physical tampering.

NextGov Beware the Risks of Government Data Center Consolidation
The US Government, like all of us, is trying to save a little cash and make its day-to-day operations a little more efficient. And while most of us might not run data centers as part of our daily routines, they are vital to the ongoing (and some would argue, important) functions of the federal government. In an effort to cut costs, Washington is consolidating its data centers, and though consolidation is a smart move, data centers - both federal and otherwise - invite specific risks when they are merged. How those risks are managed will ultimately determine the success of the mandate.
Wired Hop On the High Speed Bus
The first general purpose computer, known as ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer - circa 1964), was heralded as the "Giant Brain." It was literally larger than a dozen passenger buses and weighed about as much. Every computer since then has employed a system known as a "bus" for transferring signals and data both internally and to peripherals.
