I believe we were recently quoted a price of like $900/month (between cross-connect and monthly charge) for 10Mb OpenGear OOB access in a large Canadian Data Center.  We passed.  While I don’t disagree, you have to pay for these services.  The cost far exceeds the value for what is provided in many cases.

Ha! “Surprised”? Well, offering OOB for a reasonable price could be a differentiator for the savvy colo providers, but bean counters say: “Huh? If customer X wants OOB, they can pay ~$300/mo for a cross-connect”. ~$300/mo might seem an exaggeration, but not for some of us. Even ~$150/mo is ridiculous.

If 4G-ish mobile service won’t work, expect to pay. ;-(

I have routers in both 60 Hudson St & 1 Summer St and I’m looking for some low cost bandwidth options for out of band management.  Currently I have Opengear boxes at each site with cell modems but they don’t work too well.  I either need to replace them with new cell based devices or find a wireless/ethernet bandwidth option.   I only need a couple serial ports and ethernet for when everything breaks.

I’m in DR space @ 60 Hudson and the Markeley MMR @ 1 Summer

I’m surprised OOB bandwidth isn’t a feature for colocation providers.
