Opengear provides a configurable family of management appliances with a free custom development kit (CDK) available for all the IM4200, CM4100, ACM5000 and ACM5500 models. Using the CDK you can generate custom firmware images without certain programs or with new custom programs included; or with unique configuration files or custom defaults in the firmware image.

However you may require more extensive customization. So Opengear also offers OEM and custom product development services to provide customers with custom branded and custom designed secure gateway and management appliances. We provide a timely and competitive option to enterprises looking for quality, high-performance and reliable management appliances that meet their custom needs.

Our developers have extensive knowledge of embedded Linux and open source development, and experience in the widest range of security protocols and communication technologies. So we reduce the risk and the cost for new platform development. We also reduce the time to market, particularly where customer's existing software can be quickly customized and integrated into existing platforms.
