Data Centre ICT Networking Product of the Year
The first NetOps console server with both Smart Out-of-Band management and advanced automation tools, featuring support for 10GbE network infrastructure as well as 24-port serial and 24-port 1GbE Ethernet
Opengear, a Digi International company, and a leading provider of solutions that deliver secure, resilient network access and automation to critical IT infrastructure, launched the OM2224-24E-10G-L, the first console server to combine Smart OOB™ management and standard NetOps tools with support for 10GbE networks. The new model features 24 managed 10/100/1000 Base-T switched Ethernet ports, and a 10GbE SFP+ interface allowing for 10 Gbps transfer rates.
The OM2224-24E-10G-L is the newest member of the NetOps Console Server series, enabling both advanced automation applications and Smart Out-of-Band features in a single appliance. With the dual 10GbE SFP+ Ethernet ports, the new model supports the higher bandwidth infrastructure common in data centres and high-density installations and also adds flexibility to configurations with both serial console and Ethernet ports. An embedded 4G-LTE cellular modem ensures access even when primary connections are not available.
Managed through Opengear’s Lighthouse software, the OM2224-24E-10G-L is part of Opengear’s Network Resilience Platform, which provides an independent, secure management plane that supports secure remote access and standard automation to critical devices.
“The growing popularity of the OM2200 series of NetOps console servers among network and data center managers has driven us to expand and enhance the product line further,” said Ryan Hogg, senior product manager at Opengear. “The OM2224-24E-10G-L meets the growing customer demands and reinforces Opengear as an innovator and leader in out-of-band access, monitoring and management of network infrastructure.”
