Opengear Advances to Preferred Solution Partner Within the Cisco Solution Partner Program

Opengear (, a leading provider of critical infrastructure management solutions through advanced console servers, remote management, monitoring, and cellular out-of-band products, announced that it is now a Preferred Solution Partner within the Cisco® Solution Partner Program. The Internet of Everything (IoE) continues to bring together people, processes, data and things to enhance the relevancy of network connections. As a member of the Cisco Solution Partner Program, Opengear is able to quickly create and deploy solutions to enhance the capabilities, performance and management of the network to capture value in the IoE.

Opengear’s infrastructure management solutions are designed to maximize IT resilience. Opengear delivers features like Smart OOB™for out-of-band access and monitoring even during primary connection outages, along with auto-response capabilities for intelligently and proactively detecting and repairing faults before they become failures. The Opengear product line – including the popular IM7200 Infrastructure Manager, newly certified as Cisco compatible and at the forefront of resilient network and server console management – also offers Opengear’s Failover to Cellular™ technology with embedded Wi-Fi and 4G LTE connections that provide wireless access and complete independence from infrastructural faults. This ensures uninterrupted availability for remote networks and eliminates the need for manual intervention. Additional capabilities such as enterprise-grade security, environmental monitoring, and Zero Touch Provisioning automation all simplify and bolster infrastructure management to safeguard network uptime and ensure IT continuity for businesses.

“The increasing reliance of businesses and products on always-on connectivity – especially visible with the rise of Internet of Everything technologies – is quickly increasing the necessity of IT network resilience, and it’s a need we are glad to provide the solutions to meet,” said Gary Marks, President, Opengear. “We’re proud of our longstanding relationship with Cisco (including our role in the Cisco Solution Partner Program), and honored to have Opengear named a Preferred Solution Partner.”

“We depend on Opengear to ensure we’re never without access to our networking equipment at any remote site throughout the world,” said Jeremy Stretch, Network Engineer, DigitalOcean. “Opengear allows us to quickly and proactively address any issue when a server is offline and inaccessible by other methods. With remote data centers all over the globe, we don’t always have personnel on-site everywhere – that’s why we find the out-of-band access Opengear provides to be so essential to our operation.”

The Cisco Solution Partner Program, part of the Cisco Partner Ecosystem, unites Cisco with third-party independent hardware and software vendors to deliver integrated solutions to joint customers. As a Preferred Solution Partner, Opengear has achieved Cisco compatibility certification on at least one solution and can provide its customers with 24-hour, 7-days-a-week customer support.
