Access infrastructure during network outages
Out-of-Band (OOB) management provides an alternative path to devices located at remote sites when the primary network is down. Separate to the production network, this allows administrators to securely monitor, access and manage all devices without impacting normal operations. Able to integrate seamlessly with existing IT network and management systems, it minimizes disruptions with an always-on connection.
To ensure even more continuity and uptime for mission-critical applications, organizations are utilizing the automated intelligence of Smart Out-of-Band (Smart OOB™).
Provide the needed assurance of uptime
Architected to exceed the demands of IT and IoT resilience, highly scalable Smart OOB is able to manage the infrastructure of hundreds of sites and thousands of devices. It protects business continuity at the hardware layer. This approach enables advanced capabilities for automatic responses and repair allowing organizations to detect faults before they become failures. Advanced troubleshooting and remediation at the network’s edge allowing organizations to reduce operating costs and minimize downtime, all from one centralized console.
So what makes Opengear’s Out-of-Band so Smart? It can:
- Detect and remediate issues automatically
- Operate independently from in-band network
- Send automated alerts via email or SMS to notify of any network issues
- Identify any inconsistencies or unusual activity with temperature conditions, cage door positions and network availability
