Plover Bay Launches Zero-Touch LAN Management Service, InTouch
Hong Kong, 14 April 2022 – Plover Bay Technologies Limited (Plover Bay, or the “Group”)(stock code: 1523). Today, Plover Bay announced the launch of InTouch, a service zero-touch remote network management solution that helps administrators manage camera systems, IP phones or any connected devices while avoiding expensive OOBM or VPN licensing and infrastructure overhead. By leveraging Plover Bay’s global SpeedFusion Cloud network, each remote site will establish a management tunnel that lets administrators reach any remote site network device and manage it - without any port forwarding, public IPs or VPN infrastructure.
Today, corporate networks must support enterprise users and devices at remote locations for a variety of reasons. Managing a large number of IP phones, camera systems, or other specialized devices becomes really challenging when the devices in question are behind home broadband networks or on cellular networks. Traditional network management tools such as OOBM and VPN solutions are designed and priced with the large corporate office environment in mind. The cost of extending these enterprise-centric tools to those remote locations becomes tough to justify, let alone support.
Plover Bay’s InTouch service extends the ability of a network administrator to reach any device UI that is behind any Plover Bay router. This new service leverages Plover Bay’s InControl2 single pane-of-glass management system to provide visibility into the network and combines the backbone of SpeedFusion Cloud to allow the service to reach remotely to each device. This means users do not have to deploy any infrastructure to enable this capability. Any new or existing Plover Bay network running the latest 8.2.0 firmware is capable of InTouch. This also means that both the user and the administrator get the benefits of SpeedFusion Cloud, so the connectivity experience is always protected and seamless - keeping everyone productive.
Gordon Beck – Vice President, USA Phone said, “Using InTouch to remotely log into the web interfaces of VoIP Phones and Managed POE Switches on a customer’s network with a click of the mouse is a massive time saver for our Support staff. This will be a feature that in only a few months’ time you’ll wonder how you ever lived without InTouch.”
Keith Chau, CEO of Plover Bay said, “We hear from customers that they are tired of the cost and complexity of managing network devices at remote locations like cameras, phones, and other infrastructure. These solutions are either not possible in a WFx or field environment, or they are just too expensive to scale in this new way of working. Now we can give them a tool they don’t even have to deploy - it’s just built into their SpeedFusion powered network”. *
