Data Centre ICT Automation/Orchestration Innovation of the Year
Entry Description
Opengear brings network resilience to IT organizations, ensuring business continuity through Smart Out-of-Band management solutions. Over our fifteen-year history, we have led the evolution from simple terminal servers to complex console servers with the development of centralized management software, embedded 4G-LTE cellular access and NetOps-ready appliances

As large amounts of compute have moved from data centers to edge locations, the ability to securely manage critical network components from anywhere has become increasingly important. Your users expect the same level of service whether from a core compute location or a local POP; the cloud may be just a concept to them, but it’s a reality for you.

Opengear helps you to manage, monitor and remediate your network remotely, even when the primary network is down, or the production network is too congested to respond. Our network resilience platform provides an independent management network, giving you secure access to provision, configure and troubleshoot critical IT infrastructure without sending someone to site – minimizing downtime, protecting SLAs, and saving you money.

Innovations include the NetOps Console Server, the only appliance that combines Out-of-Band management and Network Automation in a single unit, using open architecture tools.
