Out-of-Band Device Management
 

In networks with critical components, securing device access through a dedicated channel for managing network devices is crucial. A console port, dedicated Ethernet management port, or other OOB access must be created to recover failed devices, or to ensure management connectivity for configuration and auditing purposes independent of in-band connectivity and its status. With Neeco M2M OOB, network administrators can securely access their devices at any time, without the need to go on site to handle the outages even when the network is down.




Leveraging M2M technologies, Neeco can deploy rapid wireless connectivity anywhere Clients’ assets are located, with one SIM and choice of compatible wireless standards for international coverage. Using 2G/3G/4G mobile networks, all devices can easily be connected to central management systems to share information they are gathering, in real time. Management systems that are set up to look for anomalies can take automated actions, for example raising a trouble ticket with Field Engineers, or remotely initiating a failover to a backup system.

Neeco M2M OOB allows network administrators to:

Securely access the device management console during standard operations or network outages through the fully encrypted 2G, 3G, or LTE connection

Simultaneously operate and configure multiple devices on one site at one time

Set up preventive maintenance activities to minimize the probability of network down emergencies

Access the management console of a device through a web browser application. Administration runs in an HTML5 compatible web browser, without the need to install potentially insecure flash, java, or similar plugins. The alternative option is to access managed devices through the Client’s 3rd party monitoring applications through secure VPN connections

Utilize Neeco spare management and on-site support to restore operations in case of network component failure detection

Backup and restore configuration or system images, and set up automated work-flow to minimize administrative overheads while managing large numbers of sites and devices

Access a management console through any common interface type, including RS232 and Ethernet connections, thus the solution can be easily deployed in multi-vendor and multi-technology environments

Web console Client Application

IThe Web console client application is the key to Neeco M2M OOBTM management. Through this application, a Client’s administrator can access the device securely, with the same experience as when connecting to a management console locally.

Key features of the web console:

Session resume

Copy & paste support

Device session sharing: multiple users can open the same remote network device and see the same output

Runs in an HTML5 compatible web browser, without the need to install potentially insecure flash or java plugins
