With its new Resilience Gateway model – containing all the features that earned the original Resilience Gateway popularity among Cisco partners and global enterprises – Opengear continues to expand its successful product line to deliver new highly resilient networks and high value managed services.

The new Resilience Gateway model includes true out-of-band management via Opengear’s Smart OOB.
