These How To guides detail the steps to integrate your Opengear product with SolarWinds Orion NPM. This enables SolarWinds to monitor previously undetected devices and provides SolarWinds with out-of-band access - so devices at remote sites can be monitored and accessed even when the main network is down!.
In Opengear devices with firmware versions 3.11 and above, new SNMP status and trap MIBS were created which provide more and better structured SNMP status and traps .... and integration is covered in the attached "Extended How To" doc.
However there is also an option in the Opengear console server SNMP menu in the UI to Use Legacy Notifications (which means the console server will send SNMP traps that are compatible with those sent in older firmware before the new MIBS were added - ensuring that the firmware upgrade won't upset existing SNMP management you may already have in place).
