out of band management gear

We're using VerizonWireless CradlePoints, Fortigate 80C firewalls, and Digi CM32's for our OOB solution. 
There were a few times when VerizonWireless went down, but at those times we did not have the emergency need to be on the OOB network.

It's a simple setup and not too costly. We got the CM32s on eBay for $50/ea, not too bad.

We also have one site with a 2500 and octal cables, which is rock solid.

Lately I've been getting a lot of SPAM for 3rd party OOB management solutions. So there seem to be plenty of alternatives to a good OOB setup.

We used old fashioned Cisco 2500's with octal cables. Old school for small deployments.

We have toyed with the idea of trying to obtain OOB access via 3G/4G instead of using a dialup modem. Has anyone tried that and if so, what hardware would you recommend?

Thinklogical Sentinel is great. CLI access via ssh, web access, modem for dial in and two ethernet ports for redundant network access, supports up to
32 devices and is dc/ac http://www.thinklogical.com/sentinel
