Industrial - Belden’s Updated Management Software Increases Industrial Network Availability
Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has released the latest version of its Hirschmann network management software. INDUSTRIAL
HiVision 5.1 enables faster and easier configuration of firewalls and wireless devices from any manufacturer. With this software, industrial networks can be managed holistically, ultimately increasing the network’s availability.
The enhanced flexibility of Industrial HiVision 5.1 allows industrial manufacturers to:
- Configure hundreds of devices simultaneously, even on a live network, which saves time and ensures a consistent network infrastructure. Using Belden’s MultiConfig parameters, firewalls with varying rules can be configured together,
in addition to multiple wireless solutions, such as those inHirschmann’s BAT wireless family.
- Manage devices from different manufacturers in a single network application for maximum network visibility. Any network equipment following the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) can be integrated, including Hirschmann- and Belden-branded routers, switches, racks, etc.
With quick and simple access to a visual of the network structure, companies can more easily configure and manage all of the components on their network. A look at the complete system, with constant oversight of the network’s status, enables network managers to quickly locate and resolve issues or faults. These cost-effective benefits require little
