Keeping Your “Connected Things” Connected.

The arrival of the Internet of Things (IoT) requires a new level of resilience in data center and edge networking equipment. Gartner forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, reaching 20.8 billion by 2020. In 2016, 5.5 million new devices will get connected every day. As the number of connected objects continues to grow and the IoT becomes ubiquitous, organizations in almost every industry will have to bolster their networks with fog computing and cellular out-of-band management solutions.

Manage your mission-critical endpoints — wherever they are — and keep them connected at all times via 3G and 4G LTE.

The Internet of Things Done Right

By moving certain compute resources away from the center and closer to the edge of a network, organizations will be able to more effectively handle all of their data — no matter where it’s coming from or going to. Routers, switches and other hardened gateway devices that will be the core part of a fog computing deployment can help to effectively facilitate data handling and backhaul.

Opengear’s smart network management solutions give IT admins the ability to use robust and always-available 3G and 4G LTE connections instead of legacy wireline modems. Your team will be able to remotely manage and oversee the switches, routers and other endpoints that form the core of any fog computing arrangement. This way, even a small group of IT admins can ensure that any number of mission-critical endpoints, no matter where they’re located, are working well at all times.

By pairing an investment in the IoT with Opengear’s SmartOOB management, organizations can rest assured that the network at the heart of their newly connected operations will function properly and that problems can be quickly identified and easily resolved.
