Introducing the second-generation OvrC Pro Hub (OVRC-300-PRO), with enhanced remote management capabilities all packed into a smaller form factor with more installation options. In addition, we have partnered with Ookla® to provide you with much improved ISP network tests.
Hub’s New Upgrade – Gigabit Ethernet Port
As more of your clients adopt Gigabit ISP services, the previous model of the Hub is limiting as it can only measure speeds up to 100 Mbps. The new Hub includes a Gigabit Ethernet port, giving you the ability to measure internet speeds up to a Gigabit in download/upload speeds.
Improved Speedtest® Application for Both Previous & New Hubs
We heard you loud and clear that an accurate measure of the ISP performance is important to servicing your clients. We also learned that doing it reliably across the country is difficult to achieve.
In order to provide you the best available data, we decided to partner with the world’s leading provider of internet testing, data, and analysis today – Ookla. We’ll now use their latest ISP test technology, widely known as Speedtest. This change will lead to more accurate and reliable internet speed results through OvrC.
This change will also be applied to previous Hub models via a firmware update, so even your existing deployment of Hubs will provide more accurate and reliable test results moving forward. Of course, the maximum readings you will be able to achieve is 100 Mbps as that is the physical limitation of the port.
We’ve also changed the automated internet testing frequency to 6, 8, or 12 hours. Previously, you could run it every hour, but we found that running it too frequently could negatively impact network performance.
Smaller Hardware with More Installation Flexibility
The new Hub features a sleeker hardware that is 23% smaller than our previous model. We’ve also included new bracket options allowing for easy installation on a 1U/2U rack, on a wall, or in a structured wiring can.
No More Activation Codes
We removed the hassle of using activation codes. Now you can claim the Hub like any other OvrC product, and your location will automatically be enabled for “OvrC Pro.”
Our Commitment to Ongoing Enhancements
Since the initial launch of OvrC Pro, we never stopped evolving its capabilities. We released six major updates since launch, including greater breadth and depth of integrations to products and more advanced ways to troubleshoot and access those devices on the network. With the launch of the new Hub, we’re committing to continued investment in the OvrC Pro platform.
Previous Hub (OVRC-200-PRO) End of Life
Once inventory of existing Hubs is sold through, we’ll stop offering that model and only carry the Gigabit Hubs.
As always, we continue to evolve our product based on your feedback. Please continue to provide your thoughts and ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
