OOB



I am curious what is the best practice for OOB for a core
infrastructure environment. Obviously, there is
an OOB kit for customer managed devices via POTS, Ethernet, etc ... And
there is OOB for core infrastructure
typically a separate basic network that utilizes diverse carrier and diverse
path when available.

My question is, is it best practice to extend an inband VPN throughout for
device management functions as well?
And are all management services performed OOB, e.g network management, some
monitoring, logging,
authentication, flowdata, etc ..... If a management VPN is used is it also
extended to managed customer devices?

What else is can be done for remote management and troubleshooting
capabilities?
