Universal Network Management System for Central Management
PLANET’s Universal Network Management System (UNI-NMS) incorporated in a workstation or PC can monitor all the deployed wired or wireless PoE industrial–grade network devices, such as managed switches, media converters, routers, smart APs, VoIP phones, IP cameras, etc. compliant with the SNMP Protocol, ONVIF Protocol and PLANET Smart Discovery utility. It thus enables the administrator to centrally manage the network from a central office, greatly boosting network and power management efficiency. With its user authentication management, UNI-NMS enhances data transmission security in the modern factory automation systems.
Watch Over Network within Minutes
The domain information web page presents a managed devices list and topology view, providing the at-a-glance and efficient summary of your management network. It lets you have a valuable information on the current wired and wireless network statuses via data-driven graphical charts. The topology viewer and event reports enable you to visualize the system usage and node status in real time so as to address whatever issue they may have.
Three Steps to Manage Nodes with Ease
The UNI-NMS enhances user experience by providing more user-friendly Web GUI (Chrome only*) and obvious step-by-step guidance on each related function. Unlike other third-party software, it reduces training time and allows even non-technical users to be able to set up wireless network within minutes.
Real-time Centralized Monitoring
As the UNI-NMS can come out with a topology view of the network of the deployed powered devices, it enables to detect which device is online (green) or offline (red). The real-time centralized monitoring of these devices can help the administrator to know what the current statuses of these devices. As shown below, it comes with the mapping function that enables to detect the location of each network site.
Optimizing Wi-Fi Deployment with Floor Maps
With the floor maps, APs can be located according to the field deployment, thus saving your time and cost of on-site support and monitoring. The current statuses of APs are shown in real time and the heat map is able to show the wireless signal coverage and strength to help the administrator fine-tune the overlapping of the adjacent APs anytime to optimize the wireless network performance.
Browser-based Control on VM Eliminates Limitation of OS
Designed to provide more flexibility, the UNI-NMS utilizes the Oracle virtual box technology to enable to import software image under different OS platforms, capable of operating from anywhere via web browser and network adapter that are able to access managed nodes on a DHCP-enabled network, thus controlling multiple devices through single PC, laptop or tablet which eliminates the hardware limitation of general hardware controllers. For better performance and more scalability, users just need to upgrade the personal equipment without replacing the original hardware controller. PLANET UNI-NMS is a value-added software which makes your network central management solution more efficient without any hardware installation and extra expensive budget.
※ Using Chrome browser is recommended.
Economical Central Network Management Solution for SMBs
PLANET UNI-NMS helps service providers and IT managers control all PLANET network devices at the same time and enables administrators to effectively manage up to 100,000 managed nodes and 200 managed sites simultaneously without purchasing any license, hardware controller and expensive annual subscription fee.
The administrator can automatically discover and configure device profiles, batch provisioning/firmware upgrade, and built-in SAPC (Smart AP Control) that customize Wi-Fi planning against floor maps, and monitor all managed APs through single web-based interface. It allows operating across different platforms through virtualization software. Such design avoids the need to configure the wireless APs one by one and provides more profit to SMB users.
