Tyco Electronics introduces new iTRACS Infrastructure Management Software
May 12, 2005 - Enhanced software is designed to better examine and map network connectivity.
Tyco Electronics has introduced new iTRACS Infrastructure Management Software. The software is designed for use with AMP NETCONNECT AMPTRAC Connectivity Management System.
The enhanced software is designed to better examine and map network connectivity, simplify moves, adds and changes and eliminate time-consuming manual work order processes by tailoring access to help desks, network administrators and technicians.
"iTRACS IM software is ideal for customers with complex telecommunications networks and critical applications, like financial and educational institutions, data centers, medical facilities and government entities," explains Tony Beam, director of business development for Tyco Electronics. "These customers share the difficult task of managing complicated networks while requiring accurate documentation, security and frequent moves, adds and changes."
When used in conjunction with AMPTRAC Connectivity Management System, iTRACS IM software enables real time monitoring and reporting of the physical network connections and devices. These include automatic alerts and event logging whenever a connectivity change is detected. The software's Automated Work Order Process function enables administrators to determine rights and privileges for authorized users to propose MACs and create detailed work orders and schedules. Once an accepted work order is complete, the iTRACS IM software instantly updates all records. When unauthorized changes occur, work orders to reverse unwanted actions are generated.
Detailed reports of cable and port usage and suggested AutoRouting are valuable tools for network administrators to optimize asset utilization and prevent costly errors. The new iTRACS IM software enables full functionality by remote users via any Windows Tablet PC.
"iTRACS IM software and the AMPTRAC Connectivity Management System take connectivity management to a whole new level, revolutionizing the way customers control, monitor, secure and document their infrastructures," says Beam.
