Whatsupp? How 4G is Creating Opportunities for IT VAR’s

If you’re a business with new premises, in most European countries you’ll face a lengthy delay in getting a broadband connection in a time frame that suits your needs.

Busy Tone

Your workforce may be able to function using cellular technology, but what if that location has no IT staff and you have a server room of IT equipment. How can you access, diagnose and fix any issues remotely? You can’t!

This may be an extreme example, however in the digital economy there is a greater need for redundancy in business critical networks and for the ability to maintain availability. Standard remote management redundancy is no longer enough.

The Edge

Enabling technical staff to connect to IT equipment remotely via 4G through console servers is a big growth market. Largely driven by a greater level of critical applications at the Edge, the organisation needs to be able to remotely keep availability up to keep costs down as well as maintaining user productivity and brand reputation. Also where there is no possibility, need or desire to have a fixed line connection it is important for IT personnel to be able to remotely connect to sites.

4G or not 4G, that is the question?

So the simple solution is to build a console server with a built in 4G connection right? Wrong! Many server rooms are deep within, or underneath buildings, many data center managers do not want a 4G connection in the data center to manage. The flexible option is to provide the 4G access but to decouple the switch from the 4G access point and connection through CAT5.


Vertiv partnered with Cradlepoint (a global leader in 4G LTE and cloud services) to give customers the most flexible 4G options for connection. Reliability of service was the key priority in selecting Cradlepoint. In addition, Cradelpoint’s “Enterprise Cloud Management” enables the user to consolidate, view and push firmware to all their Cradlepoint devices from one source.

Simple connection via a VPN tunnel, flexibility on auto or manual fail over. Vertiv’s Avocent ACS Console Server just got more connected.
