Uplogix passes the Cisco Interoperability Verification Testing

Our Cisco Unified Computing System Express platform solution was recently re-verified by the CIsco IVT

Back to press releases

AUSTIN, Texas (June 20, 2013) - Uplogix, the leader in Local Network Device and Machine-to-Machine Management, recently re-verified the Cisco Interoperability Verification Testing (IVT) of our Cisco Unified Computing System Express platform solution. Using the UCS Express as a hosting environment to embed Local Management Software on Cisco ISRs, the router becomes a full featured Uplogix Local Manager. 

First released by Uplogix in 2011, a 2900 or 3900 series ISR is configured with HWIC serial port cards to allow serial port connections to up to 48 managed devices. An HWIC wireless modem is used for out-of-band access.

“The ability to run Uplogix software on an UCS platform gives Cisco users even more flexibility in deploying Local Management”, said James Dollar, VP of Product Strategy at Uplogix.

The IVT program is important for both Cisco Developer Network members (like Uplogix), and customers. According to Cisco, developers can promote products as "Cisco Compatible," and for customers:

"...faced with a choice between tested and un-tested products [customers] may prefer the product that has gone through IVT. Customers may also be reassured by knowing that technologies have been pre-tested, reducing integration costs, accelerating deployments and minimizing risk of failure. Often Cisco IVT is a pre-requisite for customers to consider the solution."

In deploying the power of Uplogix on Cisco hardware, customers can take advantage of their investment in extensible Cisco Integrated Services Routers with support for SRE Modules (SRE 710 or SRE 910) to locally manage configuration, security & compliance, and performance & availability. With Uplogix, Cisco users can automate many tasks normally requiring an onsite technician and get secure out-of-band access to devices when they require human attention.

In our research, the more sophisticated IT executives who run 'aggressive' IT organizations consistently place 'automated problem/resolution' as a key item on their wish lists.
