The IM7216-2-24E – a 16-port console server with built in Smart OOB™ technology and a 24-port Gigabit switch – ensures IT resilience.
Opengear has introduced the IM7216-2-24E Infrastructure Manager, the newest addition to Opengear’s 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 UPSes. 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 centers and remote environments, the IM7216-2-24E – like all IM7200 products – includes Opengear’s Smart OOB™ out-of-band management capabilities. The embedded Smart OOB 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.
Additional mission-critical capabilities standard across all IM7200 solutions include environmental monitoring, audit trail logging, Zero Touch Provisioning, and enterprise-grade security. All IM7200 devices also include redundant Gigabit ethernet/fiber connectivity, an embedded POTS modem, and an optional embedded cellular modem ready to utilize Opengear’s Failover to Cellular™ technology for ensuring uninterrupted network connectivity.
Other solutions available from Opengear include the Remote Site Gateway ACM7004-5 and the Resilience Gateway ACM7004-5-LMx, which offers the same level of flexibility as the IM7216-2-24E in a compact form factor. Attendees at Interop ITX will have the opportunity to explore and demo the full slate of Opengear’s solutions.
“This marks Opengear’s seventh year at Interop in Las Vegas,” said Todd Rychecky, VP Sales at Opengear. “We know from experience that businesses attending Interop really understand the critical need for remote management solutions in our always-on world, and we’re particularly excited to announce the IM7216-2-24E this year. We invite organizations to Booth #435 to see how our Opengear’s technology can provide the resilient network infrastructure and uninterrupted connectivity that businesses – and their own customers – demand.”
