Hardware

Opengear has begun shipping a line of "smart" Linux-based cellular routers. The ACM5004-G routers support remote management via 3G, offering console server functionality and control of devices with serial, USB, Ethernet and digital I/O interfaces.

First announced in March, the ACM5004-G was touted at the time as being the first serial device server to offer remote monitoring over 3G cellular network devices. The ACM5004-G offers network administrators all of the functionality of Opengear's console servers, such as power control and distributed site management, and makes it accessible through a 3G connection, says the company.

Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
