The suite includes Moxa’s MXview network management software, MXconfig network configuration tool, and N-Snap industrial network snapshot tool.

MXstudio’s three key benefits – easy configuration, smart visualisation, and quick troubleshooting – are designed to meet the demands of industrial automation networks.
“MXstudio enables users to maximise productivity with Moxa industrial Ethernet solutions,” added Ray Hsu, assistant manager, product marketing, Moxa.
MXview provides auto discovery of network devices and physical connections; event playback for quick troubleshooting; and colour-coded VLAN/IGMP groups and other visualsed network data.
MXconfig offers mass configuration to reduce setup time; topology analysis to eliminate manual setting errors; and configuration overview for efficient management.
