Industrial Network Management

Info05 May 2016
Every industrial network has a lifecycle consisting of four basic stages: installation, operation, maintenance, and diagnostics. Throughout all four aspects of the industrial network lifecycle, integrators and operators would encounter many challenges. To optimise network efficiency and minimise total cost of ownership, a management software suite that combines all the tools needed throughout the network lifecycle is essential.

MXview - Industrial network managment software

Moxa’s MXview network management software is designed for configuring, monitoring, and diagnosing networking devices in industrial networks. MXview provides an integrated management platform that can discover networking devices and SNMP/IP devices installed in subnets. All selected network components can be managed graphically via web browser from both local and remote sites—anytime and anywhere.

  • Discovers and visualises network devices and physical connections automatically  
  • Network diagnostics and event notification
  • Comprehensive reports
  • Centralised configuration and firmware management
  • Supports MXview ToGo mobile app for remote monitoring and notification

N-Snap - Industrial network snapshot tool

Network Snapshot

  • Topology information (LLDP table)
  • VLAN, IGMP, routing, forwarding, interface table
  • Switch configurations

Network and device comparison

  • Highlight the differences between snapshots and generate reports
  • Highlight the differences between two switches (LLDP, configuration, routing)

Display device information in multiple windows

  • Monitor multiple ports
  • Routing table, VLAN table, IGMP table, MAC table, interface table
  • Event log

Standalone tools

  • Collect diagnostic data and mail the compressed file to backend TS/RD
  • Scheduler for executing CLI command
  • Connect to remote agent
  • Event log viewer
  • Ping, Telnet, web console, trace route

MXconfig - Industrial network configuration tool

Moxa’s MXconfig is a comprehensive Windows-based utility that is used to install, configure and maintain multiple Moxa devices in industrial networks. This suite of useful tools helps users set the IP addresses of multiple devices with one click, configure the redundant protocols and VLAN settings, modify multiple network configurations of multiple Moxa devices, upload firmware to multiple devices, export/import configuration files, copy configuration settings across devices, easily link to web and telnet consoles, and test device connectivity. MXconfig gives device installers and control engineers a powerful and easy way to mass configure devices, and effectively reduces the setup and maintenance cost.

  • Easy broadcast search of the network for all supported Moxa managed Ethernet devices
  • Mass network setting (such as IP addresses, gateway, and DNS) deployment reduces setup time
  • Mass configuration duplication reduces installation cost
  • Multiple grouping for easy classification
  • User-friendly port selection panel provides physical port descriptions
  • Link sequence detection eliminates manual configuration errors
  • VLAN Quick-Add Panel speeds up setup time
  • Deploy multiple devices with one click using CLI execution
  • Export device list for easy backup, and import device list for quick searching

EDS-SNMP OPC Server Pro- OPC server software that works with all SNMP devices

Moxa's EDS-SNMP OPC Server Pro provides a user-editable Tag file for any SNMP device. Use the default MIB file, or create and edit a standard or private MIB to generate a dedicated Tag file. This powerful function lets operators use an existing HMI software environment to create a customised and real time view of the integrity of all Ethernet network devices, the overall Ethernet network traffic volume, and overall Ethernet network status.

Moxa's managed Ethernet switches are ideally suited for connecting Ethernet-enabled industrial devices in mission critical applications. Combined with EDS-SNMP OPC Server Pro software, your HMI (Human Machine Interface) packages and SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) software will be turned into a complete remote network traffic and status monitoring tool. This solution gives control engineers the power to monitor the network from a central location with existing and familiar visualisation and control applications.

  • "Broadcast search" the network for Moxa's managed Ethernet switches and any SNMP device
  • Easy to create and edit the configuration of connected devices in advance
  • Easy to create and edit the MIB Template for dedicated tag file of any SNMP device
  • User-definable tag file meets the requirements of many different applications
