R&M encompasses the innovative automated infrastructure management system R&MinteliPhy by upgrading the analyzer, the core component of the monitoring system to include additional displays. With these additional displays the limit of 2000 ports becomes unessential as it can control even more plug connections from an R&MinteliPhy analyzer. The expansion means that R&MinteliPhy uses fewer IP addresses than before, allowing the system itself to monitor large data networks.
R&MinteliPhy automatically generates connection plans if new computers are integrated into the network or plug connections are changed. Unused patch panels and free active device ports can be detected immediately. This information improves the way in which the infrastructure is used, thereby increasing the profitability of the network or Data Center.
Talking on the up gradation, Reinhard Burkert, Product Manager at R&M said, The additional displays enable alarm messages and instructions to be displayed in each network cabinet, irrespective of whether they are fitted with an analyzer or not. “Cabling faults can therefore be localized even faster. Technicians receive information about patching the patch cable exactly where it is needed.” Previously, information could only be displayed in the cabinet in which the analyzer itself was installed.
- The R&MinteliPhy analyzer is a component for 19″ cabinets.
- The device has a rack height unit (1U) and the consumption is 1.8 watts.
- With the new additional display, this information is also available in other network cabinets controlled by the same analyzer.
R&MinteliPhy is a system for automated infrastructure management (AIM) in Data Centers and local data networks. Every link can be monitored continually. A central server records the cabling status from a distance and at remote locations too. Its functions include the management, analysis, and planning of the cabling.
