WLAN Network Management
The Wireless Network Management Systems architecture allows configuring or performing firmware upgrades on any network infrastructure. Monitored devices can be on LAN behind a NAT or on WAN. Scalable software design is perfectly suited for small and large networks. Rapidly growing networks may be split it into smaller logical groups (smaller networks) and assigned to different administrators. All information about the devices that are monitored (name, MAC, serial number, IP, firmware version) is stored in Wireless Network Management System server. Information storage in one place, quick search capabilities, data export options simplify the inventory management. Each network device can be monitored individually with defined tracking parameters (standard and custom based on SNMP value). Reported alerts are shown on wlan Network Management System dashboard in a real time.
