Transition Networks, Inc., a leading provider of innovative, high-value, data network integration solutions, today announced an expansion of its portfolio of PoE+ enterprise switches with the new smart managed PoE+ switches. This portfolio includes an innovative device management system (DMS) ‒a technology that offers advanced tools necessary for management of IP-based powered devices.
The DMS capability built into the switches is new from Transition Networks and provides time-saving features enabling security integrators or network administrators to establish and document a baseline deployment, and automatically discover and remotely configure attached IP-addressable powered devices (PDs). The DMS provides simplified management of devices through various views, such as a graphical topology view, floor view or using Google Maps™ mapping service, allowing users to easily locate and keep track of these devices. It also features auto power reset (APR) to monitor and automatically restart edge devices, saving truck rolls to remote locations for simple rebooting of the attached PDs.
Other DMS features simplify troubleshooting cable and IP connection issues, allow monitoring and analyzing traffic by day, week, port or device, and conduct health checks with thresholds and auto-alarm on error conditions.
