CDI Highlights Cisco-Ready Out-of-Band Management Tools

Communication Devices, Inc. (CDI) will sponsor Cisco Live 2016 next month in Las Vegas, demonstrating Out-of-Band Management with industry-leading security, flexible connection options and comprehensive management software.

For Cisco system engineers and network managers, it’s critical to reach remote network devices for configuration and on-going management. Out-of-band access tools facilitate simplified deployment and rapid response to network failures or system events.

When managing routers, firewalls and other network devices, SECURE ACCESS is an absolute must. CDI devices and software simplify out-of-band access within the demanding requirements of both commercial PCI and government FIPS standards. Two-factor authentication and encrypted access to the console ports of Cisco and other network devices establish a trusted toolset for secure network management.

By using traditional analog (POTS) and cellular wireless (LTE) connections, CDI devices provide the flexibility to deploy out-of-band management cost-effectively across various system and site configurations. Built-in network connectivity provides an additional method for simplifying device access and upgrades.

With CDI’s Out-of-Band Manager (OBM) software, network managers can reach across multiple network sites with the assurance of immediate control and continuous audit trails of management activity.

Cisco Live 2016 will be a terrific forum for IT managers and network engineers. Visit CDI in Booth #3254!
