Opengear manages Interop Las Vegas network

For the second year running, Australian-developed Opengear products have been selected to manage the Network Operations Centre (NOC) of this week’s Interop technology show in Las Vegas. For more information, call John Harris on 08 8431 4000 or email

This week’s Interop Las Vegas technology show is using Australian-developed Opengear products to manage its Network Operations Centre (NOC) – for the second year in a row.

Australian-founded Opengear ( is a leading provider of next generation console server and remote infrastructure management solutions. With senior managers and its R&D team in Brisbane, Opengear makes more than 80 per cent of its sales in the US.

Running until Thursday this week, Interop Las Vegas is a flagship technology event in the US, combining in-depth educational programs, workshops, real-world demonstrations and live technology implementations in its unique InteropNet program. The InteropNet is a cornerstone of the Interop event built in collaboration with hand-selected, innovative vendors and volunteer engineers who come together to create a completely interoperable network using the industry’s most cutting edge technology.

For the second year in a row, InteropNet’s NOC team has selected Opengear to provide its IM4200 product family of console servers to monitor and manage Interop’s show network.

Opengear IM4200 products are providing out-of-band access for device configuration and troubleshooting for the Interop NOC, show floor and off-show floor production infrastructure. This includes providing a secondary secure wireless/cellular connection to key racks in the unlikely event of an out-of-band network outage.

Opengear designed its portion of the Internet NOC remote infrastructure management architecture to be set up and torn down very quickly, since it is a temporary event network.

Opengear National Sales and Business Development Manager (ANZ) Brendan Baker said Opengear’s selection for Interop’s Network Operations Centre was important recognition. “It’s the second year running we've provided the management hardware for InteropNet,” he said.

“This is seen as the ultimate network challenge, which has us working alongside some of the biggest vendors in the network world.”
