Network management for industrial networks

Belden : 09 September, 2013  (New Product)
Belden announces a major new release of its Hirschmann Industrial HiVision network management software. Version 5.0 of Industrial HiVision adds extensive functionality for configuring and supervising an industrial Ethernet network.
Network management for industrial networks
Like their office counterparts, industrial networks are becoming more heterogeneous. Rarely does a network consist of equipment from a single manufacturer. HiFusion, a tool provided free of charge with Industrial HiVision v5.0, is a stand-alone application which facilitates the integration of any SNMP-capable device into Industrial HiVision. HiFusion also includes a wizard, to guide users through the creation of the integration files. Industrial HiVision v5.0 now offers the best of both worlds: the device management granularity of a manufacturer-specific application and the device management diversity of a generic open network management platform.
 
Whilst industrial networks are becoming larger and more complex, and Industrial HiVision v5.0 offers an intelligent response: distributed management. A network management hierarchy provides master and slave network management stations, to ensure that any size of network can be supervised. 
 
Product Manager Mark Cooksley points out: “In the office world, network management is the domain of the IT department; experts with many years of IT experience. In the industrial world, not everyone is an IT specialist. Industrial HiVision was designed from the ground up to be a product which will be used by automation engineers. The project set-up wizard in v5.0 leads step-by-step through the most daunting task - getting started. The resultant configuration can be customised later.”
