ESSENTIAL SELECTION Opengear adds to remote management solutions Opengear has launched the IM7216-2-24E Infrastructure Manager, the newest addition to its flagship line of IM7200 remote management solutions. The IM7216-2-24E offers customers a built-in 24-port Gigabit switch embedded alongside a 16-port serial console server device. The flexible IM7216- 2-24E is a complete solution for managing network infrastructure devices either through traditional console ports or over IP for service processors, PDUs, and UPS. The release of the IM7216-2- 24E replaces Opengear’s IM4216- 34, with the new model now offering superior performance, a more powerful CPU, increased RAM and bandwidth, and upgraded cellular technology with 4G connectivity available through multiple carriers. Built for securely managing critical IT infrastructure in data centres and remote environments, the IM7216-2- 24E – like all IM7200 products – includes Opengear’s SmartOOB out-of-band management capabilities. The embedded SmartOOB technology provides reliable, remote access to network equipment regardless of physical location, and supplies the network intelligence required to troubleshoot and automatically remediate network disruptions. All IM7200 devices also include redundant Gigabit ethernet/fibre connectivity, an embedded POTS modem, and an optional embedded cellular modem ready to utilise Opengear’s Failover to Cellular technology for ensuring uninterrupted network connectivity.

The company says the Dante Domain Manager makes audio networking more secure, more scalable and more manageable than ever before. Dante replaces traditional analogue audio cables by distributing synchronised audio signals across large distances, to multiple locations at once, using nothing more than an Ethernet cable. Dante transmits uncompressed audio over a standard IP networks with near-zero latency. Aidan Williams, Audinate’s chief technical officer, said: ‘By providing tools familiar to IT administrators, Dante Domain Manager makes it easy for them to deploy and manage a networked audio/video system regardless of equipment manufacturer. ‘The concepts of building “domains” and “domain controllers” are well understood in the world of network administration. Features such as SNMP traps, Active Directory integration and audit logs are commonplace in IT systems, and all are supported by Dante Domain Manager.’ For further information visit: www.audinate.com Masergy introduces SD-WAN Go for next-generation networking Masergy has unveiled a major extension of its software defined platform with SD-WAN Go. SD-WAN Go is a managed service that supports a dynamic, policy driven approach to networking that addresses application, location and user context. It lets organisations add a variety of connectivity options, data resiliency and security to their WANs in response to their growing bandwidth requirements. Most SD-WAN solutions are proprietary and lock customers into a single vendor or technology approach. Masergy’s fully integrated software defined platform lets customers reap the benefits of SD-WAN while reducing the risk of an ‘all-or-nothing’ solution. SD-WAN Go lets customers use existing or additional connections (private, dedicated, broadband or 4G) to securely tunnel and route data across the public Internet and over Masergy’s software defined network platform. Tim Naramore, Masergy’s chief technical officer, said: ‘Adopting SD-WAN Go is like moving from a paper map to Google Maps. We give users a real-time view into the dynamic nature of their networks. ‘We designed SD-WAN Go to give businesses the ability to quickly and securely add locations to their WAN and introduce a new level of network intelligence to meet their application performance requirements.’ For further information visit: www.masergy.com 40 | May 2017 ESSENTIAL SELECTION Opengear adds to remote management solutions Opengear has launched the IM7216-2-24E Infrastructure Manager, the newest addition to its flagship line of IM7200 remote management solutions.
