NETWORK AND DEVICES UNDER CONTROL
Are you using a multiplicity of routers, WIFI routers and access points? Our Network Management System (NMS) simplifies configuration and management of them all. For example, you can:
  • Manage many devices in a variety of company areas or multiple customers
  • Create configurations, deploy per mass rollout and monitor currentness
  • Roll out new firmware on devices
  • Manage SIM cards and device passwords
  • Assign devices and SIM cards to vehicles and locations
  • Manage IP addresses and allocate to devices
CENTRALIZED MANAGEMENT – DEVELOPED THROUGH EXPERIENCE
Our software has been developed through experience: for transport companies,like the Stadtwerke Augsburg, we have installed a centralized management andmonitoring system for routers in buses and trams. The Network ManagementSystem for public transport is an ongoing development with countless functions including a pilot project for the Munich Stadtwerke / SWM Services. The NMS is also in use in Nuremberg. Benefit from our experience!

STANDARDIZED SOLUTIONS INSTEAD OF PATCHWORK
You receive exactly those functions that you need in order to smoothly operate all your devices from NetModule, bintec and other manufacturers: It saves time and effort in creating and rolling out configurations. No more Excel spreadsheets for managing all your devices, vehicles, passwords, IP addresses, SIM cards, etc. Software and data can be hosted in your data centre or in our vWORK cloud. The web-based interfaces allow employees to access the software anywhere, at any time.

ADVANTAGES

  • Configure several devices at the same time instead of one by one
  • One database instead of loads of lists
  • Web-based interface, internet access is enough
  • Simple navigation of tree structures
  • Scalable, clustering available
  • Ongoing improvements and extensions
  • Support with personal consultant
5 FUNCTIONS IN ONE SOFTWARE
1. INVENTORY
  • Manage many devices in different company areas or with multiple clients
  • Create inventory of devices and modules (w/ history)
  • Allocation of SIM cards, vehicles, customers
  • Device search by serial numbers, MAC, IP
  • List all devices of a certain type or customer
  • Define individual fields, e.g. inventory number
  • Status (in stock, productive, return, maintenance)
  • Import / export function (CSV)
  • Guarantee status (optional)
2. CONFIGURATION AND ROLLOUT (DEPLOYMENT)
CREATE CONFIGURATIONS
  • Easily create configurations using templates and add-ons (e.g. VPN connections)
  • Specify the number of devices to be configured
  • Import serial numbers or enter later
  • Mass creation of configurations
ROLL OUT CONFIGURATIONS
  • Router regularly loads up-to-date configurations. If a reconfiguration is available in the system, an upload is initiated for the device.
  • Vulnerability detection recognises changes on a device that have not been made by the Management System. The changes can be accepted in the system.
TRANSFER CONFIGURATIONS TO DEVICES
  • By HTTP transactions (login, download, upload)
  • By regular device downloads (provided in URL)
  • By SSH (partially)
VERSION MANAGEMENT
  • History of configuration statuses with rollback function
  • Compare configuration versions
  • Download version statuses for manual installation
  • Manage scripts/jobs, revision control and allocate to configurations
3. MANAGEMENT OF FIRMWARE, PASSWORDS, SIM CARDS
  • Management of firmware statuses, recording of firmware and release notes for automatic distribution
  • Management of passwords, PSK, PIN and PUK
  • Management of SIM cards, including status (active / inactive), provider, card number, telephone number and allocation to device
  • Certificate management: Distribution via system or SCEP, expiry dates monitored
4. HEALTH CHECK
  • Last online
  • WAN connection
  • Number of VPN connections established and IPSEC-SAs
  • GPS status (last position)
  • Wireless LAN status
  • Signal strength WWAN
  • By Ping, SNMP and SSH
5. IP ADDRESS MANAGEMENT
