New virtual and hardware platforms offer an out-of-band management solution optimized for critical IT infrastructure and distributed networks

Sandy, UT: Opengear, a leading provider of critical infrastructure management solutions, has announced its new central management system (CMS) product offering. Opengear Lighthouse allows network engineers and system administrators to centrally manage their Opengear infrastructure management and console server appliances, and attached IT networking gear in their data center or at remote sites. The Opengear Lighthouse product release includes new hardware offerings and updates the previous CMS software package to version 4.0. It brings further support to an open, vendor-neutral platform that addresses critical IT management needs by enabling network and security professionals to manage their data center and remote network infrastructure while minimizing business disruption.

The Opengear Lighthouse product line consists of either a software appliance, which can be deployed to virtualized environments, or a choice of two hardware appliance solutions. Two new Dell rack mounted servers offer a proven, reliable hardware platform in standard and enterprise models. Both software and hardware appliances may operate in standalone, or in redundant configurations. These flexible product delivery methods allow Opengear’s customers to deploy the solution which best fits their environment.

The Opengear Lighthouse centralized management software offers enhanced management of corporate out-of-band (OOB) networks including upgraded centralized dial functionality, which provides network engineers and administrators quick and easy connection to remote locations. This builds on Opengear’s cellular Call Home technology, allowing those customers using Opengear appliances to centrally manage and access their IT infrastructure, whether they are reachable over the production network, through out-of-band cellular or through dialup connections. This unique end-to-end management solution streamlines provisioning, maintenance and remediation of distributed equipment, allowing central technical staff to securely manage more infrastructure with fewer resources.

“Our goal is to help large and small organizations manage their infrastructure in a secure and efficient manner,” said Rick Stevenson, CEO of Opengear. “Central management is a key requirement for any distributed network. Our new Lighthouse solutions provide better hardware options, new features targeted at improving usability, and an architecture which can scale from small to large organizations with many remote sites. Our partnership with Dell provides an improved quality solution and aligns with our strategy of providing best in class network infrastructure management.
