The company is headquartered in Sandy, Utah and has R&D operations in Australia and a sales office in the UK.
"To succeed in the today's economic climate, organizations must look at innovative methods of meeting remote support and management requirements, while reducing costs," said Robert Waldie, business development manager, Opengear EMEA. "This has prompted customers from the distributed enterprise to the data center, to adopt smart remote management technologies that streamline and automate many of the time consuming, expensive management and problem remediation processes -- reducing both OPEX (News - Alert) and infrastructure downtime.
