Opengear's sales and support staff listened to its needs and provided it with a solution placing the needs of the customer first. Having utilized numerous competing systems the cost/feature benefits of Opengear's solutions and their pleasant staff made its decision effortless. The continued reliability and functionality of Opengear's systems have meant that they can unquestionably recommend their systems to others.
