The Uplogix platform utilizes the reliability of the Inmarsat satellite network to provide out-of-band (OOB) connectivity to managed remote networks. With Inmarsat’s high-speed data services, Uplogix can automate management of network infrastructure, including the ability to provide a secure connection for administrators to remote gear.

Uplogix automates numerous network support, maintenance, configuration and recovery procedures—reducing the time, cost and error associated with manual support. A crucial aspect of managing devices locally is the need for OOB connectivity. In the event of a problem that disrupts the remote site’s primary connection, like a hung router or VSAT modem, or even an antenna failure, the Uplogix appliance “dials-out” over Inmarsat to establish a management connection.

Over this two-way connection, administrators in the NOC are alerted of the specific device with a problem. Then they can monitor automated actions taken by Uplogix, or issue their own commands over the OOB connection. To maximize data efficiency and minimize cost, Uplogix appliances can be configured to only send information about changes in device state, and timeout automatically by disconnecting a session after a set time or data volume.
