Out of Band Management
Out-of-Band Management refers to the solution that helps the network operators to establish trust boundaries. These are useful for accessing the management function and applying it to network resources. Such solutions can also be used for ensuring management connectivity while determining the status of the network component. The primary benefit of this solution is that it is available even when the network is down. So, whether the device is turned off or hibernating, or in the sleep mode, Out-of-Band Management is always available. In addition, OOBM can be used for remotely rebooting the devices to manage the devices when they crash, thereby preserving 24*7 network uptime.
