Secure Deployments With Trusted Platform Modules (TPM)

Turvalliset etäyhteydet kriittisiin verkkolaitteisiin

Secure Deployments With Trusted Platform Modules (TPM)

A Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip is a secure crypto processor that provides hardware based, security related functions. Introduced in 2009, more than 2 billion of these chips have been embedded into a wide range of devices such as PCs, ATMs and most recently, in Opengear console servers.[1]

These specialized TPM chips can be used with any major operating system. They are placed into end point devices and store critical data such as passwords, certificates and encryption keys. The encryption keys are specific to each host system for hardware authentication[2] :

  • Endorsement Key (EK): Each chip contains an RSA key pair. This special purpose TPM resident RSA key is maintained inside the chip and is never visible, it can’t be accessed by software
  • Storage Root Key: This is created when a user or administrator takes ownership of the system
  • Attestation Identity Key (AIK): This second key protects against unauthorized modifications by hashing firmware and software before they’re executed. Once a device arrives onsite, the system tries to connect to the network. Each hash is sent to a server to verify that each line up with expected values. If any component doesn’t, that tells engineers that something has been modified and ensures that the deployed system won’t be able to get access to the network

As travel restrictions remain in place and uncertainty grows due to the pandemic, enterprises must have the capabilities to securely deploy to a new location. Most times an organization will ship the devices and send a tech on site. In transit, boxes can be tampered with and even stolen. When something like that occurs, if there’s no TPM chip embedded, a lot of sensitive information is at risk. The NetOps Console Server solves that challenge.

NetOps Automation Platform

The NetOps Console Server

The new Opengear NetOps Console Servers includes a TPM 2.0 chip, which consists of an encryption engine with secure memory. TPM technology has been common in laptops and server systems for a few years, but Opengear is one of the first vendors to include and use its capabilities in a network appliance.

For organizations deploying equipment to a new site, they aren’t always able to have technicians on site. The NetOps Console Server is a secure device, that can be sent to a new location, to manage Day One deployments with an embedded TPM 2.0 chip. This protects configuration files and prevents tampering.

When the device lands at the new site, it uses a 4G LTE secure connection to call home and enables the deployment process to be managed through our centralized management software. Up to date configuration and image files are pulled in while standard Docker containers and Python runtime environment allow automation procedures to run directly on the device.

TPM utilized in the NetOps Console server provides:

  • Secure Boot: The firmware is signed and the signature is validated by the TPM chip when the unit is powered on. The TPM will stop the boot process if the firmware image has been tampered with. This prevents the introduction of malicious code that could compromise the security of the device
  • Secure Configuration: The contents of config partition is encrypted and keys stored in secure memory , all corporate information like, passwords, VPN keys, network addresses and topology info, is protected. If a bad actor steals or gain undue physical access to a unit, they cannot retrieve any critical information. That is relevant for companies shipping pre-configured units to remote locations where shipping carriers, co-location employees, rack-and-stack contractors and other untrusted personnel have temporary custody of the equipment

Case Study: Boliden ensures Gold Standard Network Resilience with Opengear

Turvalliset etäyhteydet kriittisiin verkkolaitteisiin

Case Study: Boliden ensures Gold Standard Network Resilience with Opengear

How do you reach equipment located more than 1 kilometer beneath the Earth?

Boliden is a European mining and smelting company with sites in Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Ireland. For more than 90 years, Boliden has been exploring, extracting, and processing metals. They are an industry leader of sustainable metal production, from deposits to recycling used metals.

Boliden operates both underground mines and open pit mines. At several of Boliden’s mines, operators sit in an office above ground and control loaders and drilling rigs with the aid of CCTV. The autonomous loaders drive to shafts where they tip out the ore before travelling back to load their buckets with new ore.

Boliden also relies on mobile control rooms where operators have access to process data in real time via wireless technology. The operators control and supervise the processes via smart phones or tablets.

Fredrik Hases, IT department manager at Boliden’s Garpenberg mine, the world’s most productive underground zinc mine, says that the mine is focusing on a Cisco Campus Architecture for their network which means they have both core and scattered distribution points.

Mining and Smelting company

For more than 90 years, Boliden has been exploring, extracting and processing base metals and precious metals. Our production is based on experience, innovation and modern technology, developed in collaboration with Nordic technology and engineering companies. Today, we are an industry leader in terms of sustainable metal production from deposits to recycling used metals.

Original case study at Opengear web pages: Boliden ensures Gold Standard Network Resilience with Opengear

The Challenge

Boliden’s mines are highly automated. Hases says, “The same network controls drilling equipment, loading equipment, pumps, ventilation systems, everything.”

This poses a special challenge. They have server rooms that are underground and are very hard to get to. Being hundreds of meters beneath the surface, it can take several hours to reach devices when they need to. And every time the mine has had a scheduled blasting, they have to wait for several hours afterwards to physically access the underground server rooms.

Some of their mines are more than a kilometer deep. Hases says, “They’re extremely dusty and unhealthy unless you’ve got all the right equipment, such as breathing gear. And you can’t keep your server rooms in those kinds of environments super clean.”

Being in the mine makes as simple a problem such as needing to reboot a piece of equipment complex. Hases says you need special keys to access these rooms because they are shared with other active equipment like high-voltage electrical switch gear. The air quality is poor. The noise level is extremely high.

Before Opengear was deployed, it took considerable time to make even simple fixes. He adds, “When a problem happens, an IT person has to take an elevator more than a kilometer below the earth, and they have to be accompanied in case anything happens. That takes more time, and makes it more complicated.”

Fredrik Hases, IT department manager at Boliden’s Garpenberg mine

Just an hour of outage means a huge production and profit loss. Hases says, “For us, every second counts. Avoiding downtime is really important.”

Opengear mitigates downtime

The mine is using Opengear’s IM7208 and CM7132 devices that feature Smart Out-of-Band (OOB) management.

“The Opengear units are inexpensive and work really well. We can remotely connect to both our console ports and distribution ports,” says Hases.

Boliden also uses Opengear devices for configuration of switches remotely from the office. Hases says, “This eliminated the long time it took to get from the office down to the actual device.”

The mine continues to grow and the challenge of having to physically visit sites will only increase. Hases says, “It gets deeper and deeper, and you don’t want to have to employ more people for that reason when there is a better solution. We want to do more with the people we have.”

Network Design

Before switching to a Cisco Campus network architecture, Hases says that there was a tradition to have a ring-based network. The thinking was that a fiber outage would definitely be the worst-case scenario. But, today, when everything is connected, they need more performance. Hases says, “We have so much automation of autonomous vehicles that are controlled via a wireless network. The performance just wasn’t there, so, we had to redesign the whole network.”

The Cisco Campus is designed so every individual access point has a direct connection to a distribution point. Keeping these distribution points operational is critical.

The mine network is now designed with the Opengear devices on a separate fiber, giving them a separate management plane and adding to their network resilience, ensuring 99.8% uptime.

Hases notes that having a resilient network means you have both high security and high availability. “Opengear is the insurance policy that you hope never to use, but when you need it, it’s great to have.”

Opengear: The Right Choice

He adds that they are continuing to explore the further capabilities of their Opengear devices, and they plan to investigate Lighthouse centralized management solution for their distributed networks across the region.

Hases is confident that Opengear was the right decision. “Opengear is more robust than other solutions we looked at, and it gives us more opportunities to increase efficiency and capabilities at our mines.”

Setting Up A Failover To Cellular (F2C) Network with Opengear

Turvalliset etäyhteydet kriittisiin verkkolaitteisiin

Setting Up A Failover To Cellular (F2C) Network with Opengear

Failover to Cellular (F2C) allows enterprises to efficiently change over to an always available connection when a disruption occurs on the primary, wired internet line. An outage scenario is inevitable. Those with distributed sites, like in the retail industry, are all too familiar with it. When a POS system stops working, organizations are faced with losing business and money, with the cost of downtime at $260,000 per hour.[1] Not being able to process payments, customers will have to go elsewhere or an organization can take a riskier route and manually write down credit card numbers. This opens up a wide range of liability and non-PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliance.

However, if an enterprise has a Failover to Cellular solution in place, or equipment with this capability built in, they are ensured always on network connectivity. If the primary wired internet connection is lost, Failover to Cellular kicks in. Providing speed to keep the network running smoothly, and continued internet connectivity for remote LANs and equipment over 4G LTE, engineers are able to restore the WAN without the need of manual intervention or impacting normal operations. They are then able to automatically activate a secondary connection to reestablish in and outbound network access.

Working similar to the 4G LTE technology on a smart phone, this kind of connection allows enterprises to pay per unit of data. Ensuring a consistent monthly cost depending on the carrier chosen to use, it can be deployed by simply plugging the SIM card from the carrier into the networking equipment.

Failover To Cellular With Opengear

In Opengear devices, Failover To Cellular is built-in with the internal or external PSTN modems that can be used for this. Once it is enabled, the equipment is able to detect failures by sending ICMP ping requests from the network to a primary and secondary probe address remotely. If these requests fail, the primary connection has been reestablished and the devices automatically fail forward. Opengear devices have three operation modes:

✔ Always Up Out-Of-Band Mode

This is the default mode when no failover scheme has been configured. Failover detection is disabled. Only inbound connections on the cellular interface are routed back out the cellular interface, to enable Out-of-Band access from remote networks, like through incoming SSH. Otherwise outbound network connections, like through a VPN client tunnel or SNMP alerts, are established according to the main static routing table, regardless of network state.

✔ Failover Mode

Failover detection is enabled on the primary interface. The secondary interface remains in a down state with no network configuration. When failover is initiated, the secondary network interface is started and configured. If a default route is installed on the secondary interfaces, it takes precedence over the default route on the failed primary interface. During failover, the outbound network traffic is established from the secondary connection.

✔ Dormant Failover Mode

This mode combines Always Up and Failover mode. Failover detection is enabled, however the secondary interface is kept in a dormant up state. Only inbound connections on the cellular interface are routed back out the cellular interface, to enable Out-of-Band access from remote networks.

When failover is initiated, the default route of the secondary interface takes precedence over the failed primary interface. Outbound network traffic is established out the secondary connection during failover.

Implementing Failover To Cellular

There are many advantages to having Failover To Cellular. Providing remote access even when the WAN and LAN networks are down, engineers have the ability to quickly remediate the issue while having full network visibility. Failover To Cellular is a necessity for enterprises looking to ensure resilience and keep the network running at all times.

How Opengear helped Eagle Eye Networks deliver cloud video surveillance round the clock

Turvalliset etäyhteydet kriittisiin verkkolaitteisiin

How Opengear helped Eagle Eye Networks deliver cloud video surveillance round the clock

“Keeping a close watch on business continuity” – How Opengear helped Eagle Eye Networks deliver cloud video surveillance round the clock

Founded in 2012, Eagle Eye Networks is a global leader in cloud video surveillance, addressing the security needs of businesses, alarm companies, security integrators, cities, and individuals. Eagle Eye Networks’ 100% cloud managed solutions provide cloud and on-premise recording, bank level security and encryption, and broad analogue and digital camera support – all accessed via the web or mobile applications.

As a cloud services company, Eagle Eye Networks is dedicated to delivering service to its customers and its goal is to ensure the end-to-end solution meets its customers’ needs.

Video Surveillance Company

Eagle Eye Networks, Inc. provides cloud-based video surveillance products for physical security and business operations applications.

Original case study at Opengear web pages: Eagle Eye Networks delivers cloud video surveillance around the clock

As Tijmen Vos, Technical Director, EMEA at Eagle Eye Networks, explains: “Turning a whole industry to using cloud comes with its own set of challenges such as issues around bandwidth, cheap (non-cloud) alternatives and the need to have your video available 24/7/365 on any device in real-time. Whenever you run a global cloud solution and follow a ‘rack and stack’ data centre strategy for your cloud, it is essential that you have 24/7/365 access to equipment deployed in a professional and secure way.”

Tijmen Vos, Technical Director

To ensure this continuous access and the ability to keep its video surveillance systems up and running at all times, Eagle Eye Networks went to market to seek out a suitable network management solution. The CM7100 Console Server from Opengear stood out from the competition because it delivered exactly what Eagle Eye Networks was looking for around reliability, uptime and security.

According to Vos: “We wanted to have an alternative means to access our data centre network remotely and securely, so that in the event of a network outage, we could rectify and remediate it quickly and efficiently, without having to get an engineer out on site. We were recommended to look at Opengear. It is among the leading providers of network management consoles operating across the market today.

Out-of-Band management offered us a reliable way of ensuring uptime and system availability, and we saw that opting for the Opengear management consoles would enable us to achieve the network resilience we needed,” Vos added. “At Eagle Eye Networks, we’re continuously striving to have the best cloud video surveillance solution and we see deploying the Opengear hardware as a key part of that process.

Opengear CM7100 Console Server Simplify Out-Of-Band Management

Engagement process and solutions roll-out

Impressed by the features and functions of the Opengear CM7100 solution, Eagle Eye Networks initially ordered a single unit for testing purposes and deployed it in one of its main data centres. It ran trials for three months before making a final decision to choose the Opengear solution.

With the decision taken, Eagle Eye Networks began the process of rolling it out across its data centres globally as part of its standard solution. It has already completed the process in Europe, with the US and the Asia-Pacific region set to follow in due course. Moving forwards, every new Eagle Eye Networks’ data centre that comes on stream will be deployed with the Opengear solution in place.

Putting the solution to good use

Today, Eagle Eye Networks is actively using the Opengear management consoles to create triple-redundant Out-of-Band management access across its global cloud solution, covering maintenance, support, and configuration management.

With the solution now deployed across multiple data centres, Eagle Eye Networks is achieving a range of benefits. These encompass everything from global Out-of-Band management access, to qualifying for high-quality, easy to manage global support. With the Opengear solution in place, Eagle Eye Networks can ensure its video surveillance cloud achieves high levels of uptime, and can thereby become less dependent on the uptime of individual carrier companies.

Looking ahead positively

Eagle Eye Networks has been reaping the rewards of the Opengear solution ever since it was rolled out and deployed. Vos said: “We benefit from having a robust, secure, yet flexible, remote access out-of-band management solution in place and still, more importantly, we can pass these benefits onto our customers through the higher uptime and stronger reliability of service we can provide them through our global cloud.”

Looking further ahead, Eagle Eye Networks is evaluating the potential of Opengear’s application programming interfaces (APIs) within the system’s Lighthouse software to extend and integrate Opengear and out-of-band management features into its own applications and systems. Moreover, as it continues to roll out new data centres it will at the same time continue to ensure that it embeds Opengear’s Smart out-of-band management solution at their very heart.

Opengear NetOps Console Servers and Docker Containers

Turvalliset etäyhteydet kriittisiin verkkolaitteisiin

Opengear NetOps Console Servers and Docker Containers

Deploying With Docker Containers.

Containers are lightweight standalone software that ensure applications run quickly and efficiently on each computing environment. A form of software virtualization, a container can be used to run many things, this includes everything from software processes to microservices and large applications. They bundle everything an application needs to run; such as libraries, utilities and configuration files. They hold a kernel, a complete file system and the application itself which makes them portable. Previously, applications and workloads had to be rebuilt before being able to migrate to another environment. Containers solve this time-consuming challenge.

Creating and running containers necessitate three types of software:

  • Builder: Technology that is used to build a container
  • Engine: Technology that is used to run a container
  • Orchestration: Technology that is used to deploy, manage, and scale containers

Out-of-Band: More Than A Safety Net?

Article

NetOps Automation: The Opengear Way

Article

There’s a variety of benefits when it comes to deploying containers, these include:

  • Portability: Container engines are highly portable and able to run on any operating system. This enables developers to write applications on any system they’d like. They can then deploy it on Mac, Linux or Windows once it’s ready.
  • Resource Efficiency: Containers don’t require a separate operating system which means they use up less resources. Containers are kept small, only storing the needed kernel, libraries and files for the specific application. This makes it easier to run more containers than virtual machines (VMs) on a server.
  • Effective Isolation: Containers run on the same server and use the same resources, however they have limited interaction with each other. This means that if one application crashes, it’s far less likely that others will be affected. They continue to run, uninterrupted without issues. This also helps with security
  • Designed For Disposal: Quick to start up, they don’t have to be upgraded live, like a hard node in a data center. Instead it’s faster and easier to dispose of the container and replace it with a new one.
  • Reduced Total Cost Of Ownership: Containers allow many applications to be run on a single host, so the need for additional compute resources are minimized.
  • Scalability: Containers allow developers to easily adapt application deployments through vertical and horizontal scaling. Horizontal elasticity allows for the number of application instances to decrease and increase. Resource costs are reduced by only running the containers that you need in real time.
  • Improved Development: Containers eliminate environmental inconsistencies which makes testing and debugging easier. They ensure that applications can be run and work as designed which promotes an effective development process.

Organizations can use containers in multiple ways:

  • Lift and shift existing applications into modern cloud architectures
  • Easily isolate, deploy and scale using containers
  • Provide support for continuous deployment and integration
  • Ensure easy deployment for repetitive tasks

Although there are many platforms to perform the tasks above, for our NetOps Console servers, we choose to deploy Docker. An open source containerization platform, Docker provides a wide range of benefits, like ensuring software source code can be inspected and modified by anyone. It also allows for the development and delivery of software in packages, also known as containers. Each Docker container targets a specific application. This enables enterprises to build distributed applications while using processes they they’ve had in place. Applications can be shipped with necessary dependencies in one package enabling applications to run smoothly in any kind of environment. Docker allows developers to use whatever tools, stacks and environments they’d like, simplifying the roll out of applications across multiple systems.

Docker:

  • Provides a CLI based workflow to make building, sharing and running containerized applications available to developers.
  • Enables developers to code and test locally.
  • Ensures consistency between development and production.

One of the most frequent questions about Docker is how does it differ from a VM? In the past, VMs have really been the go to with cloud infrastructure. Acting similar to a computer, it is an isolated computing environment that’s created by taking resources from a machine. It makes it possible to run what appear to be many different computers on hardware, however it’s actually one just one computer. Docker containers are a more lightweight, economical and scalable alternative. Operating system support, security and portability are a few of their significant differences. All that containers need to run is just enough of an OS to support programs, libraries and system resources to run a specific program. This means that you can run more containers at a lower cost vs. traditional virtual machines.

NetOps Console Servers and Docker Containers

Now to dive a little deeper into Docker and our NetOps Console Servers. Enterprises are becoming increasingly software oriented. This has increased the need for IT organizations to have the ability to build versatile applications that can run across multiple channels at the edge. Responsible for network infrastructure, NetOps teams must ensure uptime. A very dynamic role, their every day tasks could range from managing tickets to resolving any network issues that may occur. To properly manage all of that infrastructure, most times remotely, it’s critical that their network architectures are software-defined, application-aware and automated. Containers provide them with the ability to meet accelerated deployment and mobility demands. When building the NetOps Console servers, we took that need into consideration. That’s why it has an x86 platform that was specifically designed to run Docker containers, known as the industry standard, because they have everything needed for an application to run.

NetOps Automation Platform

NetOps Console Server Capabilities

Opengear provides a platform which is dedicated to supporting containerized applications and can be used for management purposes. In many cases, NetOps teams have to ask for space in a production application server. This can cause many challenges due to multiple applications running on the same platform. The NetOps Console servers provide an always on management plane, that is there on day one and when things go wrong in the production network.

Case Study – Builders FirstSource relies on Opengear’s Out-of-Band Management solutions

Turvalliset etäyhteydet kriittisiin verkkolaitteisiin

Case Study – Builders FirstSource relies on Opengear’s Out-of-Band Management solutions

THE CHALLENGE

Builders FirstSource is the nation’s largest supplier of structural building products, value-added components, and services to the professional market for new residential construction, repair, and remodeling. They operate lumber yards, millworks, distribution centers, manufacturing locations and retail stores, and ensuring seamless network connectivity for business continuity across its approximately 500 US locations is critical.

Prior to adopting Opengear, Builders FirstSource used a competitive failover solution for terminal servers within the data center. They found that their system worked well for simple cellular access but was not built for reliable Out of Band (OOB) Management. Their system used a Java-based client in the web portal that had many incompatibility issues with their equipment. Greg Taylor, Lead Engineer for Builders FirstSource, explains.

“With the previous hardware, I’d have it plugged into the router and have no response on the terminal server or on the console connection even though it’s working. Then you would have to reboot the device or the router or both which, if you’re trying to fix something, is not acceptable. It’s also configured where after 15 minutes it kicks you out. Even if you’re in the middle of troubleshooting or pasting a config script, you get kicked out. Once you log back in, you have to figure out where it kicked out if you’re running a script and there’s an unacceptable amount of latency in that process.”

Greg Taylor
Building Products Company

Builders FirstSource, Inc. is a Fortune 500 company that is a manufacturer and supplier of building materials. The company is headquartered in Dallas, Texas, and is the largest supplier of building products, prefabricated components and value-added services in the US.

Original case study at Opengear web pages: Builders FirstSource relies on Opengear’s Out-of-Band Management solutions

Finding A Solution

Builders FirstSource wanted to find something to work with their current system to take the place of the incompatible Java-based terminal services. When they began looking for a replacement for their OOB management, Greg sat down with another engineer and came up with a wish list of all the things they wanted a device to be able to do if it was out-of-band. They added things they didn’t think were possible but would be really nice to have.

They asked their VAR, 24/7 Networks, if they knew of something better for their needs. 24/7 Networks recommended Opengear, a solution that combined both Out-of-Band and reliable terminal access. So far, everything on their wish list has been accomplished by Opengear.

Greg says, “For example, we’ll have situations where we need to get firmware on a Cisco switch that has died. We discovered that you can copy the file over to a disk on the Opengear and then from there you can copy it. We were blown away that that was even a possibility.”

Another thing Greg finds valuable is the security within Lighthouse. He says, “We can do TACACS over the same Lighthouse open VPN tunnel, which is important to us. We’re not just sharing out the same username. You can still have the security that you have with your TACACS server locally on your LAN, but have that protected over the internet.”

Simple Deployment at Remote Locations

When the first Opengear unit arrived, Greg’s team tested it in the data center. They tried plugging into a variety of devices, including Aruba and Cisco switches, Silver Peak SD WAN, and Palo Alto firewalls. Greg says, “I tried unplugging and plugging, rebooting things and not once did the Opengear unit fail to respond. If something didn’t work, it was the switch itself that was broken.”

Builders FirstSource needed devices that were going to be reliable and wouldn’t require technical expertise. Greg explains, “A general manager doesn’t typically know what a console cable is.” They are transitioning from specialized Cisco roll over console cables that are shipped with every Cisco device. But if that cable gets lost then they lose access. With Opengear, they can take any straight through cable. And if the cable isn’t long enough, they can just find a longer cable or buy one at the store.

Recently, one of Greg’s colleagues was troubleshooting with the OOB management solution that they are phasing out. He had to take apart the device just to take out the SIM. That means that if it’s shipped out to a site, it’s going to be locked into whatever SIM that’s in with no IT staff available. With Opengear’s new- L series, swapping out the SIM is easy, and no configuration is needed on the Opengear side. Greg says, “I just plugged in the Verizon SIM and it called home, which is fantastic.”

SD-WAN + Smart OOB = Enterprise Grade WAN

Builders FirstSource is rolling out the SilverPeak EdgeConnect SD-WAN platform to all of its nearly 500 sites. With this roll out, Greg plans to use Opengear Smart OOB™ to prevent outages. SD-WAN routers are more sophisticated and run a larger software stack. Firmware updates are common which means that there are many more opportunities for things to go wrong, so an alternative access path is critical in case of router failure.

Greg gives an example. “I had an outage in Oklahoma and it took me about two and a half hours to fix the problem with our existing solution – we had to move equipment and find special cabling to make it work. If I had Opengear at that site, it could have fixed this in 15 minutes. From a business perspective, that downtime costs you way more than the investment to implement Opengear across the board.”

The Smart Solution

As their current devices reach end-of-life, Builders FirstSource plans to replace with Opengear in all their locations. They have installed 16 and 32 port console servers with embedded cellular access (IM7216-LMV and IM7232-LMV) in their data center. For remote locations such as their lumber yards and retail sites, they now use the Resilience Gateway with 4G-LTE access (ACM7004-2-L). They also use Lighthouse for centralized management of the entire out-of-band network.

As Greg says, “The Opengear system just works. Managing our sites from one central location is so much easier now that we can always access the equipment remotely when a problem occurs.”

The Necessity Of Network Resilience in a Distributed Enterprise by Opengear

Turvalliset etäyhteydet kriittisiin verkkolaitteisiin

The Necessity Of Network Resilience in a Distributed Enterprise by Opengear

The choice of a distributed architecture for an organization is usually determined by the business requirement to support its remote office base at the same level as its main office. Branch offices broaden the reach of the business and are usually a sign of successful business growth. However once the decision to expand with branch offices has been taken, these offices instantly increase the responsibility of the IT/Network Manager who has to ensure that local branch assets including networking devices, such as routers, switches, WAN optimizers, firewalls and any distributed applications and servers for transactions and email are all correctly installed and maintained. The IT/Network Manager must ensure that these remote devices are integrated into the central network management and Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) systems for appropriate management and security.

A distributed network involves many, many different components and increases the vulnerability of service disruptions due to the lack of technically trained personnel at the branch office and geographic isolation from the central support staff. The IT/Network Manager needs a framework for implementing and managing these components, monitoring their status and ensuring they are performing effectively from a central location. Remote access is absolutely critical in a distributed enterprise.

NetOps for Your Network

Secure Provisioning Over Your Out-of-Band Network

The common denominator of most branch office IT deployments is network connectivity, which typically requires a router, switch and firewall. If these components fail in a remote location, then business will suffer. Centralized management of the branch office is imperative, especially from the viewpoint of the branch office since ideally it means that there is nothing to do! No need for local support personnel and no responsibility if the local devices have a problem. For the IT/Network Manager, on the other hand, having tens, or even hundreds of locations to manage can be a daunting task. A central view of, and access to the local assets is needed to remotely address troubleshooting challenges. Not all branch offices are necessarily deployed using exactly the same devices as the main office, it is essential that a centralized management solution can support a wide breadth of devices, as well as advanced security and authorization capabilities This is critical to ensure enterprise security standards are maintained and downtime minimized.

Most networking equipment has serial interfaces, and in-band tools like Telnet are common methods of accessing and maintaining these devices. Unfortunately, if there is a problem with the network then these access tools might well be useless. Remote access using out-of-band management to servers, WAN equipment, networking gear and power control devices enables the IT/Network Manager to maintain and manage these devices, and monitoring of devices ongoing is vital to ensure that problems can be identified and fixed as quickly as possible. With remote monitoring many problems may be identified, and resolved, before they begin to effect local traffic. With out-of- band management the IT/Network Manager can provide modem or cellular access if the WAN is unavailable, which can prevent a trip to the remote location and speed repair time.

It only takes one mistake when an IT/Network Manager can’t connect through the network, and doesn’t have out-of-band management, for there to be a major network issue. The IT/Network Manager would ended up having to send someone to the site, access the server and restart it. A problem that should have taken five minutes to fix could become the cause of major network downtime, increased cost and unhappy customers.
