Friday, June 17th, 2011 - Opengear
Opengear, provider of next generation console server and remote management solutions, announced a new line of 32 port units. The ten new 32 port units give Opengear more than 100 different products available, more than any other console server manufacturer.

“There is no one-size-fits-all requirement with IT executives and data center managers. Nobody wants to buy a product that doesn’t fit their exact specifications, but sometimes they are forced to because vendors don’t have products that fit their needs,” said Bob Waldie, Chairman of Opengear. “Our open source platform and customer driven product development enables us to create and manufacture a wide range of products to specifically fit our customers’ requirements.”

A few highlights:
  • Opengear is announcing the new line of 32 port units for its Opengear IM4200 and Opengear CM4000 product families, including two new GSM and CDMA cellular smart routers.
  • The 32-port IM4200 starts at $2,726 (incl GST) and the CM4000 is priced at $1,786.
  • Opengear now has more than 100 different products available. This is up from 23 in 2008.
  • Opengear offers a 4-year warranty with free software downloads for the life of every console server.
