Managing large numbers of deployed network equipment poses unique challenges to the network administrator. It requires a centralized solution with efficiencies found in a platform that uses standard client tools, databases and protocols.
PerleVIEW Device Management System is an Enterprise-grade, multi-user, Windows server-based centralized management package that simplifies the configuration, administration, monitoring, and troubleshooting of Perle Managed Media Converters, Ethernet Copper Extenders and Industrial Switches in medium to large-scale deployments. Network Administrators, using their Internet Browser, can securely access PerleVIEW and manage 10’s, 100’s or thousands of Perle devices from a centralized server. There is no user client software required to be installed on administrator’s PCs. The management of the Perle device network is simplified by using PerleVIEW to:
- See all network problems at a glance and take appropriate action
- Track inventory and display how the devices are performing
- Gather statistics and run reports from network data stored in the SQL database
- Schedule, or issue on-demand, mass deployment of firmware updates and configuration files
- Backup and restore configuration
- Automatically check the latest firmware levels
- and much, much more!!
PerleVIEW is the most complete centralized management package for a managed device installation. It enables your IT organization to focus less on daily maintenance and more on meeting future business needs.
PerleVIEW Device Management Features
|Try and Buy||
Download a full function copy of PerleVIEW and try for up to 30 days. You can then purchase your PerleVIEW software from an authorized Perle Distributor or Perle eStore. An activation key is sent to you for installation so there no need for you to re-install PerleVIEW.
A simple, single server license with no restrictions on the number of Perle managed devices you are managing or the number of users accessing PerleVIEW.
PerleVIEW follows the ISO Telecommunications Management Network model and framework for network management.
|Health Monitoring||Colored icons on the Status Panel enable you to see at a glance, the operational health of your Perle network devices and quickly drill down to find the elements that require attention.|
|Fault Management and Event Handling||PerleVIEW provides notification of failure alerts to pre-defined users.|
|Automated Event Handling||Handle alert notifications through customizable automated event handling. Send e-mail, text messages and Twitter feeds.|
|Alerts via Twitter||This unique and powerful feature enables alerts received by PerleVIEW to be communicated via Twitter. As a Twitter application, PerleVIEW when given permission, can direct alerts received and securely send these out to a user-owned Twitter account on its behalf. Followers of the user account can then receive Twitter feeds on these alerts.|
|Integrate with your SNMP NMS||Use PerleVIEW within your existing core NMS infrastructure. SNMP traps from the media converter management network received by PerleVIEW can be relayed to another SNMP NMS peer such as HP Openview. Administrators can take advantage of the powerful features available on PerleVIEW as their Element Management System for their media converter network while maintaining their core NMS infrastructure.|
|Customizable pro-active monitoring||Periodic SNMP probes interrogate the health of all your Perle devices on the network ensuring that you have the most update information on your network devices.|
|Configuration Management||Configuration backup, firmware and change management is provided to maintain and control the configuration and software levels of the devices that are deployed.|
|Automatic Device Discovery||PerleVIEW can automatically discover and identify devices attached to the network. Discovery filters enable you to limit discovery to specific network segments, domain name, specific IP address or IP address ranges. Discover devices on the local network as well as those located across routed networks.|
|Device CLI Scripting||Powerful tool for advanced users. Create CLI scripts that can be used for various device activities such as large scale configuration changes.|
|Backup and Restore||Backup your device configuration for future restoration if and when required.|
|Device Firmware Version Control||PerleVIEW can do periodic checks for the latest device firmware and PerleVIEW software levels directly from Perle’s web site. Devices that are not at the latest level are easily identified.|
|Deploy Device firmware||Easily perform firmware updates to a large number of devices through simple deploy device firmware tasks. These can be set up as on-demand or scheduled.|
|Administration, Performance & Security Management|
|Easy Navigation||Easily find your target device in the navigation pane. Navigate the entire device collection by name, IP subnet, device type, hardware type, health status or even your own custom group.|
|Device grouping||Set up your own groups of devices that make sense for your own organizational needs. These group names can then be used for user authorization, views and device tasks.|
|In-band Connection Tool||Directly manage specific devices using Telnet, SSH, http or https. PerleVIEW provides the option of a browser-based GUI or a browser-based command line interface (CLI) to make it easy to incorporate PerleVIEW into your existing troubleshooting processes. Unlike other network management platforms, the connection to the device is made through PerleVIEW and is not a redirected client. This enables the client and the managed devices to exist on separate unconnected networks.|
|Single sign-on for in-band connections||With pre-configuration, an authenticated user connected to PerleVIEW can connect to any of the devices without re-authenticating again to the device.|
|Device PING tool||Device administrators can initiate standard ICMP PINGs from PerleVIEW to a targeted device. This provides a powerful troubleshooting tool right from your browser without having to know device IP address.|
|Audit Trail Log||PerleVIEW logs all tasks performed by all PerleVIEW users. This log can be viewed on-line or exported as a .csv file.|
|Internet proxy||Access to the internet for version update checks, email and Tweets can be configured to work through an internet proxy on the server.|
|Reports||All device activity, status and information is kept by PerleVIEW in an SQL database. Users can create their own customized reports using standard SQL database tools such as Crystal Report or Microsoft Access.|
