Maintain and establish connectivity in remote locations via Nodegrid’s secure out of band management and control platform.
Imagine you’re the IT guy in charge of making sure the remote assets are running properly. Think of the locations – A drilling rig or platform out there on the ocean, a moving ship, or even the warehouse on shore or in some other remote location hundreds if not thousands of miles away; How do you troubleshoot issues way over there?
Sure you’ve got staff on location, but are they smart hands? If they are, great, you’ll be back up in no time… maybe. Do they have the technical background to get your network up and running? Can you afford the business impact with said downtime? Is there alternate routing while the main network is down?
Technically, you could hire dedicated IT staff for the remote location but chances are your CFO won’t approve that; So what do you do?
If you value efficiency and want to ensure maximum uptime, a remote management appliance like our Nodegrid family of solutions are exactly what you need in this situation.
Be there without having to physically be there. With ZPE Solutions, you can take care of network/connectivity issues at the remote location remotely from the convenience of your own home office/branch at any time.
