Out-Of-Band Management Made Easy ...
Out-Of-Band Management Made Easy
The ACM5000 line of products give network managers simple and cost effective tools for managing the network, power and computer devices in their small and large distributed networks. Organizations can now centrally monitor the status of the power at all the remote outlets and centralize alarms to set up automatic shut-downs to be triggered in the event of battery back-up outages or excessive operating temperatures.
In event of an outage, they can access all their branch office sites out of band and reboot the systems using the inbuilt service processors. Or they can run software applications on the virtual servers at the head office that communicates securely to serial devices at the remote sites.
The ACM5000 family uses an embedded FIPS140-2 cryptographic module that has been validated and has received Certificate #1051. The ACM5000 family also employs IPsec VPN for advanced security to meet the most demanding applications.
Out of Band
The ACM5000 can be ordered with integrated 802.11n wireless, 3G cellular or analog modem cards. The heartbeat monitor can trigger dial back or redundant path during network outages. Be prepared for diaster recovery and ensure maximum uptime.
2 Gig USB Flash Drive for TFTP Server
Store local copies of router and switch configurations on our 2 Gig USB flash for disaster recovery. This allows you to make backups of existing configurations before making changes, that way if you break it you can simply roll back the config.
Store offline logs on our USB flash to provide an audit trail, we log both the serial ports and the available networks to provide syslog, keylogging and a .pcap file for wireshark.
Pattern Match Alerting
Opengear console servers can help you ensure uptime by proactively scanning the serial stream on the console ports for specific errors or phrases. We monitor the traffic on the serial port and will watch for user defined patterns or phrases and send alerts via SMS text or email based on pattern match.
Hotkey Power on RPS/PDU
Imagine yourself having out of band access to a dead communications device that is entirely locked up in a frozen condition, simply hotkey via SSH or telnet to launch our power menu to check power status, power cycle, turn off or on. We have support for thousands of RPS/PDU units, both serial and SNMP connected units.
Unlike other proprietary vendors we allow access to the linux core including bash. Why do i need this? Well, you can create proactive self-healing solutions that cycle power on a router or switch on ping failure.
