Opengear and Cormant, developers of the CableSolve physical layer IT infrastructure management system, have announced integration that gives MSPs, VOIP Service providers and others centralized management, secure access, control and visibility into all physical IT assets behind firewalls.
"The CableSolve IT Infrastructure Management solution provides infrastructure visibility, ensures accurate change control and meets corporate compliance, governance and security requirements," said Paul Goodison, CEO of Cormant, makers of CableSolve. "Opengear's secure in-band and out-of-band infrastructure access coupled with CableSolve's single, standard repository ensures complete visibility, centralized secure access and control of the entire physical IT infrastructure."
Opengear provides secure in-band and out-of-band access and remote management using 10/100 ethernet, embedded cellular 3G, V.92 modem, 802.11 wifi, and optional dual ethernet access. CableSolve provides additional visibility and reporting and sends alerts on any changes (for example, when there is a failure of a serial device). With a point and click, the service provider has secure out-of-band access to the equipment at the site to take remedial action.
"CableSolve and Opengear engineers started working together leading up to this year's InteropNet in Las Vegas," said Bob Waldie, CEO of Opengear. "We found that our products complement each other well in providing visibility and control over all the physical assets in edge networks that have hundreds of connections. CableSolve communicates with Opengear console servers to manage all the gear commonly found in remote networks including Cisco, F5 and others."
