National Instruments Inc. deploys Opengear's VoIP management and networking products
Enterprise Opengear, being prominent vendor of next generation console servers and telecoms management solutions, has announced that company National Instruments, a manufacturer of premier, innovative products that massively simplify the operations and projecting activities of engineers and scientists, has taken an Opengear solution to distantly manage its associated networks.
Dedicated infrastructure management ensures an out-of-band, standing alone, reliable access path to specific networks in cases of infrastructure operational outages; supporting uptime and business unimpeded functioning for enterprise connections and data centers. The National Instruments network conjoins more than 50 detachments around the globe and is supported by Cisco, Juniper, and Citrix networking firmware. National Instruments will deploy the gateway named ACM5004-G Cellular Remote Infrastructure Management (RIM) from Opengear, in order to interconnect Cisco 2800, 2900, and 3900 collaborated services routers, added by the Catalyst 3750 switch, dedicated Cisco 574 Wide-Area Virtualization Engine (WAE), and Juniper’s different series of EX Series switches and stacks. Having deployed the Opengear ACM5004-G, NI can backup uptime by getting the network across the cellular connections, even if the remote destination is far away from company main headquarters, thus massively freeing IT resources and mental energy. National Instruments has initiated the IT project by installing Opengear applications in 20 offices, and this initiative has already brought up proven ROI. As is boasted by Craig Langerman, network engineer at National Instruments, "Our Californian offices already had deployed Opengear products, and when we have initiated a WAN optimization activities on the network, it delivered quite unstable connectivity to our main premises. We became capable to connect remotely by means of the Opengear device and find out all troubleshooting mechanisms to fix up the issue, without having to deploy someone from our main office in Austin to California." The Opengear tools is a new firmware in majority of National Instrument's offices, but company will be replacing or upgrading Avocent engines with Opengear in its headquarters. Opengear addressed NI's stringent security standards by ensuring SSH and SSL connectivity, and provides an integrated Nagios tool as an collaborated management. Nagios supports centric monitoring of all the servers, software and networking associated services in geographically distribute data centers of different designations. "The application covers all the data centers for out-of-band access, with space for further growth, which is very lucrative," stated Langerman. "It ensures a wide feature asset, and backs up stable networking interconnectivity for National Instruments, whilst allowing company’s IT resources to be spared for higher-level IT projects instead of onsite remote office support." Proceeding forward, National Instruments looks forward to install Opengear's bigger IM4200 infrastructure management utilities, with plans for dynamic redundancy at its Costa Rica destination. "Opengear knows how important is a resilient network platform and devices are for business unimpeded proceeding," stated Vice President at Opengear, Todd Rychecky. "National Instruments accepts our support as for GSM, as for CDMA cellular deployments, making them to get and alleviate a problematic network device globally, with no stops to related business." Opengear develops intelligent solutions for basic network infrastructure handling. Opengear's Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) and Remote Infrastructure Management (RIM) tools deliver security and user-friendly remote monitoring, access and control of essential IT objects.
