4G LTE-Certified IM7200 and Other Feature-Rich Solutions on Full Display

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Mar 31, 2014) - Opengear (www.opengear.com), a leading provider of critical infrastructure management solutions through advanced console servers, remote management, monitoring, and cellular out-of-band products, today announced its attendance at Interop Las Vegas, where the company will again be a part of the InteropNet Network Operations Center (NOC). Opengear continues to execute its cellular strategy for out-of-band management and will be showcasing its powerful IM7200 remote infrastructure manager, now with Verizon and AT&T 4G LTE PTCRB certification and integration, among other products.

Opengear designs and manufactures secure remote infrastructure management solutions that are high in capabilities, cost-effective, and flexible. The products save businesses time, effort, and money by reducing mean time to repair and insuring business continuity. At Interop Las Vegas, Opengear will be participating in the InteropNet NOC for the fourth consecutive year, enabling attendees to see a real-life implementation of Opengear's answer for reliable remote site management.

"The InteropNet looks forward to using the IM7200 at this year's show and demonstrating the LTE 4G cellular out-of-band connectivity to the show attendees and the NOC tour participants," said Glenn Evans, Lead Architect of InteropNet.

"We're excited to come back to Interop Las Vegas with some really great new products and updates," said Todd Rychecky, VP Sales Americas, Opengear. "Integrating cellular connectivity is the future of remote infrastructure management, so the IM7200 Infrastructure Manager's recent 4G LTE PTCRB certifications across the Verizon and AT&T networks solidify our commitment to pushing the industry forward. The IM7200 is now certified for use on Verizon Private Networks, which not only strengthens our relationship with Verizon but also makes it easier for our customers to introduce cellular connectivity into their infrastructure management plans. We know Interop attendees are really going to like what they see at the Opengear booth."

The IM7200, which has made Opengear a finalist in Network Products Guide's upcoming 2014 Hot Companies and Best Products Awards, is designed to be the most advanced remote management solution on the market. With the IM7200, businesses can improve business continuity and resilience in their high density computing environments. Some of the console features include:

  • Advanced console management: Immediately access consoles from preferred SSH client or integrated HTTPS AJAX web terminals, for full lifecycle remote management of mission-critical infrastructure -- through provisioning, maintenance and rapid repair.
  • Future-proof infrastructure management: Fastest connection speeds and lowest latencies through fibre, GbE, 4G LTE connections that are designed to integrate with, and optimize management of state of the art data centres and existing brownfield installations.
  • High performance and high security: A class-leading platform driven by a 1GHz ARM processor more than twice as powerful as any competition, for high-performance encryption of sensitive management traffic across many simultaneous connections, through built-in VPN and strong-cipher SSH and SSL.

Opengear will also be featuring the newest feature available across all appliances, the Smart Connection Manager. Designed to simplify and enhance the central management of remote networks and IT infrastructures, the free upgrade automatically restores out-of-band management network connectivity for distributed enterprise and service providers. In keeping with Opengear's continued leadership in cellular out-of-band management, the Smart Connection Manager has built-in 3G and 4G LTE connectivity.
