The new software is combining the benefits of a manufacturer-specific application with the flexibility of a generic open network management platform.
Belden announces a major new release of its Hirschmann™ network management software for industrial networks, combining the benefits of a manufacturer-specific application with the flexibility of a generic open network management platform.
Ease of installation and use, as well as total flexibility are key benefits of version 5.0 of the Hirschmann Industrial HiVision network management software, designed for use by automation engineers. This new version builds on the success of previous releases and incorporates a range of functionalities for effective industrial network management. Based on the experience of its many users, it meets the specific challenges of configuring and supervising an industrial Ethernet network.
Because industrial networks often consist of equipment from different manufacturers, Industrial HiVision v5.0 comes with a free tool, HiFusion, a stand-alone application which facilitates the integration of any SNMP-capable device. HiFusion also includes a wizard, to guide users through the integration process.
Other new functionality in this major release includes a project set-up wizard to reduce the learning curve, a network hierarchy structure for managing large networks, and a scheduler to automate regular tasks.
Hirschmann Industrial HiVision v5.0 can be downloaded from www.hivision.de, and tested free of charge for 30 days.
