Siemon has launched MapIT IM (Infrastructure Manager) software. Combined with the company’s MapIT enabled copper and fibre-optic network cabling systems, the new software provides robust new network infrastructure management capabilities and features.
Launched in 2005, Siemon’s end-to-end intelligent infrastructure solution was designed to help IT professionals manage their networks, improve documentation, enhance security, improve productivity and reduce downtime. The system utilises a powerful combination of software and specially designed connecting hardware to track any changes made to the physical layer and provides location information for any IP enabled device connected to the network.
In order to help simplify the setup and administration of the system, a new version of the software was developed, streamlining its capabilities to provide the most critical management features in an enhanced user interface.
Siemon MapIT IM software continues to offer the ability to monitor and record mission-critical connections in data centres and wiring closets in real time, 24/7; detect unauthorised moves, adds and changes; detect unauthorised devices and provide alerts when such actions occur.
The new software also enhances the unique ability to offer complete and flexible control of IT infrastructure records, network documentation and auditable event logs. MapIT IM software features 60 easy to use reports that can provide useful information on the network resource availability or potential security threats. Plus, its advanced work order module tracks changes as they are made and ensures that the infrastructure documentation is updated automatically once the work order is signed-off.
