These holidays wouldn’t you like to relax knowing your network is running smoothly? And if something does go wrong, you won't have to abandon the festivities for a drive to site? That's the peace of mind our customers have gained by installing our out-of-band and remote management solutions in their data centres and remote sites.

The holiday period is generally a quiet time for new works, so what better time to start planning for next year. If you haven’t yet deployed remote management for your critical infrastructure, why not get in touch to see how we can make 2014 a little more stress free?

It's been an exciting year for us - in January we launched the Lighthouse central management platform, providing secure monitoring, access and control of your distributed out-of-band network from a central point. More recently we unveiled the IM7200 Infrastructure Manager. With GbE, dual SFPs, built-in Wi-Fi and optional 4G LTE, it's the most connected and powerful out-of-band management appliance on the market today.

As Gartner's Cool Vendor 2013 for IT/OT alignment, we enhanced our popular ACM5000 Remote Site Manager family with physical and environment monitoring capabilities, as well as a flash drive for offline log storage, managed device config backups and T/FTP server.

As 2013 comes to a close Opengear would like to extend a big THANK YOU to all our customers and partners who made this year a great success. As an Australian started business, we truly value our local clientele, and look forward to doing business with you in 2014. We sincerely wish each and every one of you a safe and relaxing break and a happy new year.

Our sales office will be closed from midday 24th December 2013 and reopening on Thursday 2nd January 2014. Our support team will continue to be available at support@opengear.com and enquiries to sales@opengear.com.au will be monitored during the break.
