Carrier certification expands Opengear’s out-of-band solutions built for customers using the Verizon Wireless Private Network
Edison, NJ – April 9, 2018 – Opengear (www.opengear.com), a leading provider of solutions that deliver secure, resilient network access and automation to critical IT infrastructure, today announced that the ACM7000-LMV Resilience Gateway has been certified for use across the Verizon Wireless Private Network. The designation means that all cellular-enabled solutions in Opengear’s ACM7000-LMV Resilience Gateway and IM7200-LMV Infrastructure Manager product lines have now been successfully tested and approved by Verizon.
The ACM7000-LMV Resilience Gateway provides reliable out-of-band access to critical IT infrastructure at branch offices, retail stores, and other remote network locations. The solution enables IT administrators to remotely manage, thoroughly monitor, and quickly remediate issues to ensure network uptime. All Resilience Gateways include Opengear’s built-in Smart OOB™ technology for achieving secure cellular-based out-of-band connectivity, a feature which delivers proactive, automatic detection-and-response to disruptions that can cause network outages. Connectivity is further bolstered by Opengear’s Failover to Cellular™ capability that uses IP Passthrough technology to ensure transparent failover and failback for uninterrupted access – even when primary connections experience outages.
The Verizon Wireless Private Network provides businesses with an isolated network for connecting their mobile devices – private data is kept separate from public traffic via a direct connection to a company’s internal network. Doing so allows an organization to completely control access to and from this private network. Combined with Opengear’s Resilience Gateway, businesses can quickly implement secure out-of-band management networks with LTE speeds. This provides a significant advantage to organizations concerned with securing data, especially those in the financial sector or among enterprises where isolating data greatly reduces data security risks.
“We’re proud to offer customers a full slate of Verizon-certified solutions for secure out-of-band management and network resilience,” said Todd Atherton, Carrier Sales Manager – Americas, Opengear. “Our goal is make our products work as seamlessly as possible, for as many businesses as possible. Adding certification for the ACM7000-LMV Resilience Gateway across the Verizon Wireless Private Network – in response to customer demand – will bring cellular out-of-band connectivity to more organizations’ branch offices, stores, and other remote locations where network reliability is absolutely critical to business success.”
