Opengear Extends NetOps Functionality for Advanced Out-of-Band Solutions Ahead of Cisco Live 2019

New Lighthouse features aimed at ensuring the network edge is as
resilient as the core

EDISON, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Opengear (www.opengear.com),
a leading provider of solutions that deliver secure, resilient network
access and automation to critical IT infrastructure, today announced
that it will be exhibiting at Cisco
Live 2019
and participating in the event’s Tech Field Day Extra.
Opengear will be unveiling several new product features at its booth
(#2728) 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 AutomationTM
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. IT professionals are invited to benchmark their own network
knowledge using this
interactive quiz
and can also download
the new white paper
on the subject.

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

  • Remote IP Access: The latest release of Opengear’s Lighthouse
    software includes Remote IP access and multi-instance operation, as
    well as the ability to deploy the software on Microsoft Azure Cloud.
    The Remote IP access feature allows customers to connect to any device
    that uses an IP-based connection whether they are managed via a web
    interface or service processors embedded in servers and high-end
    networking devices. These additions are significant in the movement
    from traditional OOB management to network resilience, as they allow
    support for automated network environments and extend the reach of
    management systems to the network’s edge.
  • NetOps Automation: The Opengear NetOps Automation platform
    provides an easy way for enterprise customers to implement secure and
    vendor-neutral network automation, going beyond traditional OOB access
    to provide network resilience to the edge of an organization’s IT
    infrastructure. With a new release of the Secure Provisioning Module,
    Opengear has expanded coverage and is able to automate provisioning of
    all Cisco devices running any of the iOS variants. Opengear is also
    introducing a new SDinfrastructure module, which adds
    resilience to SDN and SD-WAN deployments by extending the reach of
    management, manual or automated, to the edge of the network. Both of
    these NetOps modules are available immediately as Lighthouse
    Enterprise add-ons.
  • Universal Cellular Interface: The newest version of Opengear’s
    Resilience Gateway ACM7000 product suite, the ACM7000-L, features a
    universal cellular model with a single cell module that can be
    configured to work anywhere, across any carrier, with a single SKU
    rather than requiring different model numbers based on region and
    carrier. With this first-of-its-kind solution, Opengear customers are
    able to provide fully integrated, fully certified and complete
    cellular OOB management from high-density data centers to the network
    edge.

Since becoming a Cisco preferred partner in 2010, Opengear has
maintained a strong presence at Cisco Live. This year, in addition to
exhibiting its products and solutions on the show floor (booth #2728),
Opengear representatives will also be presenting at Tech Field Day Extra
at Cisco Live. Chief Technology Officer Marcio Saito and Distinguished
Engineer Robert Waldie will be on live at 11:00 a.m. PT – 12:00 p.m. PT
on Wednesday, June 12. Watch

“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.”
