Lighthouse 4 will reach end-of-life (EOL) as of December 31, 2018. After this date, the Opengear team will no longer continue to urgently fix remote, unauthenticated, privilege escalation, critical information leaks or remote-code execution vulnerabilities.
Cease of Standard Support
After the EOL date, Opengear will cease providing any type of Standard Support, including any content updates.
Opengear technical support will provide organizations with known fixes, patches and workarounds. Existing Maintenance Packs or information from our technical knowledge base in response to requests for assistance will also be available. It will not include development of any new modifications to Licensed Software or testing of interoperability with new releases or new hardware. Nor will we attempt to reproduce any problems or to escalate issues through management channels or to our engineering resources.
As the EOL of Lighthouse 4 approaches, the Opengear team is committed to providing organizations with always-on access even during critical failures, with Lighthouse 5, released September 7, 2017.
Lighthouse 5 Enhancements
Providing a modern architecture and built for NetOps, Lighthouse 5 centralizes out-of-band (OOB) management through a single pane of glass. Below, is a functionality comparison of Lighthouse 4 and Lighthouse 5.
Lighthouse 5 is a centralized management system that allows network engineers to remotely connect and manage devices. Providing an always-on resilient access to IT infrastructure, Lighthouse 5 reduces manual operations, decreases deployment costs and guarantees repeatability.
