Lighthouse Management Software
A clear view across your Network Resilience Platform
Lighthouse software manages all of your network devices via connected console servers at each location. As an API-driven platform with an HTML5 interface, it provides secure access to remote networks regardless of how they are connected or how a user interacts with the system. In combination with NetOps Console Servers, Lighthouse can push and manage Docker containers to each remote location to provide additional functionality and automation.
When deployed across a distributed enterprise of data centers and edge locations, Lighthouse is the control center of a comprehensive Network Resilience Platform, independent of the production network.
A Single Pane of Control
For all of your network management needs
Security: Lighthouse management software adds a layer of security to your network with integrated authentication via AAA protocols ((TACACS, Radius, LDAP); and the ability to closely control permissions for every operation, from logging in to logging events.
Automation: Run NetOps routines on your Opengear appliances by deploying Docker containers using Lighthouse; and access the local Python runtime environment to automate routines.
Scalability: As a subscription service, it’s easy to add additional nodes. Lighthouse Enterprise also allows the use of multiple instances to distribute the connectivity load and provide for redundancy when issues occur at a particular location. Lighthouse can be hosted on the hypervisor of your choice either locally or on Azure or AWS.
High Availability: For widely distributed networks, Lighthouse Enterprise can run multiple instances across sites to balance connectivity load and ensure redundancy when an issue occurs at one or more locations.
Secure Provisioning: Remotely provision network devices via a connected Opengear console server. Without a network engineer on site, and with no existing LAN or WAN, use NetOps tools to automate the configuration and provisioning of a unit once it.
Third Party Integrations: Tie a Lighthouse event (such as a connected node failing over to cellular) to one of 2000+ integrations via Zapier. The Lighthouse event can be a trigger for a range of Zapier integrations such as Zendesk (create a ticket) or PagerDuty (alerting the on-call team)arrives at site.
Broad Access: Out-of-Band is no longer about just connecting to a serial port. Beyond USB connections, fiber and ethernet ports, connecting through IP protocols is now critical to communicate with a range of IoT and edge devices. Lighthouse Enterprise adds Remote IP access to Out-of-Band Lighthouse can connect to any switch, router, PDU or UPS through an Opengear appliance, and can even manage third party console servers.
Usability: Designed for everyday use – from secure Day One provisioning and “just give me a console” in an emergency, to ongoing monitoring and complex configuration and automation routines.
Simple node enrollment can be done via ZTP, USB file, File Server, CLI, node user interface or directly in Lighthouse. Access managed devices by name regardless how they are connected.
