Out-of-band management

Access to your infrastructure in the event of network failures

Out-of-band management (OOB) offers alternative access to your network devices from an external location, even if the primary network has failed. Regardless of the production network, administrators can securely monitor, access and manage all devices without affecting normal operations. The console servers can be seamlessly integrated into existing IT networks and management systems and minimize the risk of no longer being able to access the infrastructure in the event of disruptions through a permanently established connection.

In order to guarantee even more continuity and up-time for business-critical applications, companies use intelligent automatisms of the Smart Out-of-Band ( Smart OOB ™) solutions.

First Day, Worst Day, and Everyday

Is it smart to rely on the Production network to manage your network every day? With secure remote access to your devices via the console servers, Out-of-Band (OOB) management creates an always-on independent management plane, giving you reliable access to monitor and manage your IT infrastructure. Lock down the most critical functions on the Production network, and use the more secure OOB network to configure and manage your devices. Out-of-Band is the Network Engineer’s Network.

An investment in Out-of-Band Management is an investment that pays off every day.

  • Secure Day One provisioning is now possible, using an OM2200 or OM1200 with embedded physical security, capable of running Docker containers and Python scripts.
  • Every Day management and monitoring of your IT infrastructure is more secure and more resilient over the independent management plane, separate from the Production network
  • Global cellular modules and centralized management software ensures access to your critical devices to fix the issue, when the primary network goes down
