Granite Launches edgeboot: Powerful Device Control Made Simple

AI-Powered Technology Provides Rapid Recovery for Network Devices, Eliminating Downtime and Delivering Time and Cost Savings

QUINCY, Massachusetts – July 31, 2023Granite Telecommunications, a $1.85 billion provider of communications and technology solutions to businesses and government agencies, is excited to announce the launch of edgeboot, an advanced managed power distribution unit (PDU) that leverages powerful artificial intelligence and dual ethernet/LTE connectivity to revolutionize network management. With edgeboot, Granite customers can significantly reduce downtime, streamline troubleshooting efforts, and minimize dispatch costs.

edgeboot combines state-of-the-art technology with intelligent features to provide unprecedented control and monitoring capabilities. Utilizing customizable endpoints and configurations, edgeboot monitors network device connectivity, promptly detects issues, and takes necessary actions, including automatic rebooting, without requiring human intervention. Managing edgeboot devices is made simple through the user-friendly edgeboot Portal. This platform offers out-of-band access to device health statuses, performance metrics, event logs, and most importantly, the ability to reboot devices on a recurrent schedule or on-demand.

Key Features and Benefits of edgeboot:

  1. Automated Troubleshooting: edgeboot reduces the burden on IT personnel and non-technical site contacts by automating the monitoring and troubleshooting of devices and services.
  2. Enhanced Network Visibility and Control with the edgeboot Portal: The edgeboot Portal enables users to conveniently schedule device reboots, adjust the self-healing algorithm across their fleet or at the device level, and gain valuable insights into their network. It provides a comprehensive view of network health, device metrics, and recent device events, empowering users to analyze network performance trends and eliminate chronic issues.
  3. Security First Design: edgeboot prioritizes data security with features such as data encryption at rest and in transit, a private cellular connection, and two-factor portal authentication. Ethical hacking firms have extensively tested the product, providing businesses with assurance that their network and sensitive data are well-protected.
  4. Redundancy: edgeboot introduces redundancy by providing out-of-band LTE connection and console access for connected devices, ensuring uninterrupted connectivity and access to critical resources, even during network disruptions.
  5. Scalability and Flexibility: With effortless installation and preconfiguration for quick deployment, edgeboot seamlessly integrates into most existing network topologies.
  6. Network Monitoring, Alerting, and Support: Granite’s Network Operating Center (NOC) takes immediate action if a reboot does not restore service to a device. This includes contacting and dispatching the underlying Internet Service Provider, among additional customizable, device-specific directives.

“At Granite, we are committed to developing innovative solutions that empower our customers to optimize their network management strategies,” shared Rob Hale, President and CEO of Granite. “Our journey has been shaped by the invaluable insights gained from serving a diverse array of organizations, ranging from small start-ups to many of America’s most recognizable institutions. Leveraging this wealth of knowledge, we introduce edgeboot, a managed PDU with patent-pending AI technology that simplifies device console management for network administrators, setting a new standard for efficiency and performance. With a focus on intelligent features, user-friendliness and scalability, and fortified with essential security features crucial for businesses today, edgeboot is tailored to meet our customers’ unique needs in today’s ever-changing tech landscape.”
