Opengear to Provide Network Resilience Upgrades

Opengear, a provider of solutions to critical IT infrastructure, will be unveiling several new product features that empower customers to improve the reliability of their network.

Opengear continues to focus on network resilience—keeping the network running at the core and out to the edge of the infrastructure, with no disruption to the customer experience in the event of network issues.

By broadening the capabilities of the Lighthouse central management system, the company is expanding the value of Out-of-Band (OOB) management to support organizations as they build out their networks to the edge.

A new SD-infrastructure module within the NetOps Automation platform provides a level of resilience to SD-branch deployments, while the new Lighthouse Enterprise edition enables organizations to manage their entire, globally distributed network from a single dashboard and access devices via Remote IP protocols.

As network resilience becomes critical to organizations in managing edge networks as reliably as the data center, Opengear is introducing Network RQTM at Cisco Live.

Working closely with the company’s broad customer community who are seeking to develop a deeper understanding of the drivers and metrics behind resilience, Network RQ is intended to provide relevant tools and information, as well as highlight a common terminology.

To support the focus on network resilience, enhancements to Opengear products include:

  • Remote IP Access
  • NetOps Automation
  • Universal Cellular Interface

"As organizations apply network virtualization and build out their edge infrastructure, the ability to automate and manage remotely becomes crucial,” said Marcio Saito, CTO, Opengear. "Network Automation is essential to achieve both network resilience and business scalability. At Opengear, we are evolving our NetOps platform so that in addition to connecting human operators to devices, we can also extend the reach of other management systems to the edge of the infrastructure.”
