That’s why we proudly offer Opengear as the go-to choice for network resilience, trusted by more than 75% of Fortune 500 organisations. But what makes Opengear indispensable for IT Resellers? Let’s explore why your customers’ networks need Opengear.


1. Always Evolving Solutions:

Your customers’ networks, organisational goals, and expectations are in a constant state of evolution, and so are Opengear’s solutions. To meet your customers’ current demands and anticipate future challenges, Opengear introduces new additions to the Network Resilience Platform.


   – Lighthouse Software Solution:

Lighthouse Software simplifies Out of Band network management, offering network engineers effortless device control. It eliminates error-prone manual methods, ensuring data integrity and efficiency. Lighthouse delivers centralised provisioning, a single source of truth, scalability, and secure remote network access via an API-driven platform. It can even push and manage Docker containers, adding functionality and automation.


   – CM8100 Console Server:

The CM8100 is the latest addition to the Network Resilience platform. It simplifies management for network engineers dealing with dense IT environments. With the capacity to manage up to 96 serial devices and direct high-speed network connections, the CM8100 offers cost-effectiveness, fanless design, and reduced PDUs, making it an optimal choice for modern data centres.


   – OM1200 and OM2200 Operations Manager:

These devices empower network engineers with advanced automation capabilities and Smart Out of Band functionality. OM1200 supports edge locations, while OM2200 is designed for data centres. Both support Docker containers, secure boot processes, open architecture, and an embedded LTE-A Pro cellular module for global access.


2. Compliance and Maintenance:

Legacy solutions and applications are still prevalent, but they pose risks. End-of-life (EOL) hardware / software lacks support, updates, and bug fixes, leaving them vulnerable to security threats and regulatory non-compliance. Maintenance costs for post-EOL software can exceed replacement costs, and ageing servers and workstations increase the risk of downtime.


3. Mitigating Risks with Opengear:

To mitigate the risks associated with EOL technologies, IT Resellers can empower their customers by offering Opengear’s Network Resilience Platform. Opengear offers advanced capabilities for resilient networks on the First Day, Worst Day, and Every Day. Leveraging Smart Out of Band and automation technologies, Opengear ensures your customers’ networks remain robust and secure.

Our goal is to empower IT Resellers to provide their customers with innovative solutions. Opengear continues to lead the way in network resilience, offering the end user a competitive edge by delivering solutions that adapt to the ever-evolving landscape of IT infrastructure. Help your customers secure their network’s future with Opengear and ensure business continuity and security.
