Jim Toepper "In ITS, video is the sexy new technology everyone wants"
Moxa manufactures the switches, routers and gateways, and now the company is putting all those pieces together as an end-to-end traffic management network.
“In ITS, video is the sexy new technology everyone wants,” explains Jim Toepper, product marketing manager, industrial ethernet infrastructure, Moxa. “But people forget that you cannot just put a camera out there. How do you get the video back to the traffic management center? It's all about the network.”
Moxa offers industrial IP cameras that are ideal for ITS applications – tough and reliable performance in harsh, extreme temperature environments. But that is just one piece of the puzzle. Networks are built from many diverse components, and any one of those elements could be the reason for a performance failure. The only way to truly manage the network is by looking at the big picture in real time. Moxa has taken that picture and put it on the desktop, easily accessible via a web browser.
Moxa's MXview iNMS (industrial network management software) enables this level of visibility. A network monitoring and visualisation tool delivering a graphical view of the entire network, MXview is designed for configuring, monitoring and troubleshooting Moxa's managed ethernet switches, as well as SNMP-enabled devices.
