Upgraded software detects network device connect/disconnects regardless of power or broken cables.

Molex Premise Networks has released the latest version of MIIM, the company's "intelligent infrastructure" platform for providing enhanced network management capabilities at the physical layer.

According to the company, MIIM System application software version 3.0 continuously monitors and maps the physical layer, facilitates work order management, and enables patch guidance for technicians utilizing patch panel LED's for port indication. In addition to MAC and work order management, the upgraded platform also detects network device connect/disconnects regardless of power or broken cables. An Event Driven Discovery feature provides constant information on network devices connected to the work area outlets.

The company notes that the latest MIIM system is also easy to implement and manage vial industry standard components (no special-construction patch cables, interconnection cables, or sensor strips are required), thereby reducing the incremental cost of installation. Molex asserts that the new MIIM platform offers "true centralized management of the channel not just in the cabinet/comms room, but right out to the work area regardless of LAN topology."
