Why Network Management Is Important


For control engineers, their primary goal is to ensure that they have system availability, but they often do this without focusing on the network status. This is becoming problematic because even though the Industrial Internet of Things is helping to connect more and more devices, it is unfortunately increasing network complexity and introducing new security risks. Without network visibility, it is very difficult to identify the root cause of problems. Control engineers often have to revert to trial and error to get the system back to normal, which is time consuming and troublesome.


What if control engineers had clear visibility of the network status and could quickly identify the root cause of network downtime?


Moxa’s industrial network management software offers visibility of operational technology (OT) that allows network operators to make more informed decisions throughout network deployment, maintenance, and diagnostics. Furthermore, MXview now supports the MXview Wireless module to extend this visibility to Wi-Fi networks, featuring dynamic topologies for at-a-glance monitoring and roaming playback for more efficient troubleshooting.

Explore the New Features to Get Full Visibility for Your Industrial Networks



Visualize Your Industrial Networks

After scanning the devices on your network, MXview's topology

view can automatically draw the connections between devices,

which significantly reduces the amount of time required to draw

the network topology as well as increases the accuracy of network

monitoring.







Moxa’s Network Management Software Can Help You

                     

Maximize System Uptime

MXview network management software

provides real-time alerts when an event

takes place on the network and NSnap

takes a snapshot to help operators quickly

identify the root cause of issues that occurred

on the network.

               

Visualize Network Status

MXview's new interface helps users easily

integrate network management software

into their existing systems such as SCADA

via OPC DA tags or RESTful APIs.



              

        Manage Device Security

MXview and MXconfig provide visibility

and control to enhance device security.

Users can view the security status of

devices at a glance and quickly enhance

the security of their devices.



Understand Why Our Customers Chose MXstudio



Real-time Network Visibility of a Rail Network

A high-speed railway operator built a fiber Ethernet backbone
for data transmission between its Operation Management Center         
and multiple stations to ensure high network availability. In order
to manage large-scale networks effectively, the customer chose
Moxa's industrial network management software to help
their automation engineers view detailed.




Integrating Industrial Network and Enterprise 
Networks

A communication device manufacturer wanted to integrate
their Industrial networks and enterprise networks to increase
operational efficiency. To achieve this goal, IT engineers
needed to manage both enterprise and manufacturing
networks at the same time. The customer chose MXview
it provides RESTful API, which allowed the IT engineers              
to monitor the network from a single monitor. In addition,
by deploying industrial-grade devices with fast recovery
times, Moxa helped the customer ensure the reliability of                      
their industrial networks.



Increase Network Device Security With Just a Few
Clicks

A water and waste system spanned the majority of a European
city and was monitorable from an industrial network. The local
government wanted to increase the network security in order to
keep the infrastructure secure. As the plant manager was not an
expert on network security and this project had to be implemented
quickly, it was a challenge to ensure that the network security was        
sufficient in a short period of time. MXview's security was the ideal
solution because it offered a way for the plant manager to visualize
the network security status. Equipped with network visibility, the
plant additional security features. In addition, MXconfig security
wizard helped manager could direct resources to the parts of the
network that needed additional security features. In addition,
MXconfig security wizard helped the plant manager to identify the 
critical security parameters. This information was passed to the
control engineers who were able to quickly ensure that the device
configurations met the industry standards.
