June 2013 | Raising the Stakes in Network Management
“Many network management vendors are focused on automation advances. Austin-based Uplogix has a product suite that automatically detects, diagnoses and resolves network-related faults at customers’ remote locations while ensuring connectivity with isolated locations.”

November 2012 | Network Management Solutions: Strive to Create the New “Office of the Future”
“Network management and monitoring solutions providers often talk about satellite being the most extreme networks to work with because they are both mobile in space and located in places on the ground where deploying fiber or traditional land-based connectivity is next to impossible. Dollar thinks of satellite network management issues as an extension of problems that you have inside a metropolitan area. “The remote nature of some of these enterprise satellite networks just means that it takes longer to get those critical systems up and running,” he says.”

July 2011 | Uplogix certified for Cisco UCS Express blades
“IT organizations using Cisco Systems Inc.’s UCS Express blade servers now have the ability to use local network management tools from Uplogix Inc. ‘It allows us to capture a market segment that is really looking at optimizing the amount of equipment they have,’ said Lisa Frankovitch, Uplogix’s vice-president of corporate and business development.”

November 2010 | Viewing a Network: Tools for Keeping Tabs from Afar
” The technological innovation in monitoring tools is affecting dramatically the concept of remote management, including remote access to terminals. In the past, if a connection to a remote site was lost, there were a few options — contact someone at the remote location and try to walk them through troubleshooting over the phone or send out a repair engineer. In the case of satellite communications, the latter generally was an expensive proposition, because satellite likely will be used in remote locations. Remote management is replacing this.”

August 2010 | Stop using the network to manage the network (Russian translation in PDF)
“There is no slowing down the increasing need for connectivity at remote sites in the energy industry. IP networks are moving information from SCADA data controlling pipelines, delivering drilling telemetry over satellite links from platforms at sea, and then there is the anticipated massive flow of data from the Smart Grid. To be successful, this exponential increase of networking devices in the field can’t require a similar increase of administrators to manage the network.”

February 2010 | Teleport Operations: New Technologies Help Cut Costs“The automation of network management tools is reducing the amount of time needed to diagnose and fix problems, and even identify problems which are likely to occur in the future.”

December 2009 | Must Win Markets For Maritime VSAT Vendors
“IT managers desire a solution that includes bandwidth, hardware, bandwidth management software and any other value added service, all managed through one point of contact. The ultimate nightmare for shipping IT management is to be bounced between software and hardware providers with each leveling responsibility for a system failure on the other.”

November 2009 | Executive Spotlight: Patrick Shay, Iridium
“One of the most interesting applications is one that has been developed by our partner Uplogix. It uses the Iridium RUDICS service for an automatic out-of-band connection to the satellite and network infrastructure equipment at remote VSAT sites around the world. It provides console-level access for fault management and recovery, configuration management and maintenance activities…”

November 2009 | Empowering Martitime Service Providers
“iDirect, Sea Tel, Uplogix and Parallel have created an integrated network architecture to help maritime VSAT service providers meet growing customer demand”

October 2009 | Securing Your Satellite Network and its Contents
“Prior to the Internet, securing a satellite network and its content from real-time invasion was relatively easy, however, the interconnection of satellite-based networks with the World Wide Web has opened a Pandora’s Box of problems.”
August 2009 | iDirect and Uplogix in satcom remote management deal
“Prior to the Internet, securing a satellite network and its content from real-time invasion was relatively easy, however, the interconnection of satellite-based networks with the World Wide Web has opened a Pandora’s Box of problems.”

August 2009 | Remote Management Leads to Greater Uptime

“SatManage takes Uplogix data feeds to highlight abnormal events on the network as well as allow at-aglance analysis of network performance. This can show problems developing over time and even highlight wasted bandwidth and resources. Because problems can be spotted in advance, pre-emptive action can be taken on-site by Uplogix to eliminate negative impact on the business.”

April 2009 | Watch the video

Mark Piening, Uplogix Vice-President for Marketing and Product Management is interviewed by Erik Linask, Group Managing Editor, TMC at Interop 2009 on automation in network management.

April 2009 | Making Satellite Networks Stronger
“Hazards of working in the isolated locations of oil, gas and mining are easy to understand. The most obvious hurdle to quick IT “truck rolls” for network repair is just getting to these locations. Frequently, it’s not even a truck. For offshore rigs, helicopters are the most prevalent mode of transportation, as well as ships for equipment and supplies. Even in locations connected by roads, facilities are separated by great distances, ensuring that downtime is prolonged.”

April 2009 | Monitoring Your VSAT
“A large amount of equipment is involved in VSAT communications—these hybrid networks contain both satellite devices like antennas, amplifiers, and modems, as well as traditional terrestrial IP network devices like servers, routers, and switches. A problem with any individual piece of equipment can cause the communications link to go down.”

January 2009 | Divide and conquer
“This past election season might have been all about change, but for information technology managers, change poses multiple challenges. Configuration changes to servers, routers, desktop computers and other devices could lead to network crashes or, even worse, security breaches. Dedicated management tools provide a much more secure connection between a home office and outlying bureaus.”

December 2008 | Setting the standard“When Highcross shopping centre opened in Leicester during early September, it set a new benchmark for the sophistication of the technology contained within its infrastructure. Many of the key applications for operating the centre are run from an integrated IP-based network.”

October 2008 | Maritime Market: Signs Point to Strong Growth for Satellite Providers
“The increasing use of automation makes a ship’s information technology infrastructure and network connectivity extremely important. Advanced out-of-band network management systems such as the system made by Uplogix allow a shipping line to manage a ship’s entire infrastructure while it is at sea, even if the main VSAT link is down. ”

October 2008 | Data Center Power Players“Managing remote sites effectively is a lofty idea that doesn’t always work out as planned. When devices can’t be recovered remotely and need to be physically powered off and on, data center managers are often forced to dispatch technicians to the remote location. It’s expensive and time-consuming.”

September 2008 | Uplogix named one of 12 technologies midmarket companies need now“CRN set out to identify the 12 must-have technologies that solution providers should be putting in front of their midmarket customers as well as some of the key vendors that will help them get there.”

September 2008 | Locking the Back Door to Distributed Branch Office Networks (by guest author Bert Wilhelm, Uplogix director of product and technical marketing)
The security of branch office networks has been enhanced in the last decade through the adoption of technologies such as directory systems, AAA security policies, logging and encryption. More recently, financial services organizations have undertaken major projects to move access and tracking security to a more comprehensive and powerful model called Identity and Access Management (IAM). IAM aims to securely manage user identities and access rights across multiple business functions and applications.
