RiT Technologies, provider of Structured Cabling Solutions for enterprises and a developer of an innovative indoor optical wireless solution, has integrated its CenterMind solution with PatchView+ bringing advanced intelligent network connectivity to the enterprise datacenter. PatchView+ is RiT’s most advanced intelligent connectivity solution available to date.
The integration of CenterMind with PatchView+ provides datacenter managers with the industry’s first IIM solution to support mixed inter-connect, cross-connect and combined topologies, as well as combined copper and fiber cabling. In addition, the PatchView+ breakthrough architecture requires no rack space to support an unlimited number of ports, meaning a lower upfront investment in panels and rack space, and less power consumption than previous IIM systems.
The integration of PatchView+ with CenterMind, RiT’s enterprise datacenter solution, provides enterprise data center managers with complete real-time visibility and control of all network physical components, with 100 per cent accurate status of devices and their current locations, including switches, servers, switch ports and connected devices.
In addition to PatchView+ integration, CenterMind now offers a new tablet application for automated work order administration that saves on technician overhead, and an upgraded report center that proactively sends alerts on unplanned network changes and unusual variations in critical environmental parameters such as cabinet temperature.
According to Alex Shar, RiT’s CTO, “Unnecessary downtime due to preventable equipment failure can put organizations needlessly at operational risk. Our enhanced CenterMind Solution helps enterprise datacenter managers resolve network issues quickly, taking the guess work out of troubleshooting and maintenance work; providing managers with greater intelligence by bringing together all the variables needed to respond quicker to business changes.”
