Manage your entire network from a single console! Motorola AirDefense Infrastructure Management offers centralized network management for the wireless enterprise for multi-vendor, multi-architecture, multi-generation and multi-version WLAN management and control. This vendor and device agnostic solution features a UI that ensures consistency in configuration, compliance with policies, while reducing device and model specific expertise required by network administrators. From a single management console, you can update device configurations and firmware, monitor device status, capture faults, audit and automatically correct device configuration issues, gather network statistics, generate trend and compliance reports, and more. Motorola AirDefense Infrastructure Management provides a cost effective and manageable way to help organizations upgrade/migrate to 11n technology while leveraging legacy infrastructure.
The AirDefense WLAN Management module eases the management of various infrastructure vendors, with multiple consoles, by providing IT staff with a centralized, holistic view into the network. The module runs on the Motorola AirDefense Services Platform (ADSP) and requires no additional hardware for functionality.
Centralized Management Console (CMC)
For large-scale deployments that require thousands of sensors and/or tens of thousands of managed devices, the CMC within Motorola AirDefense Infrastructure Management, provides aggregated views of the data on multiple appliances and a single point for configuration changes.
Policy-based fault management
The solution supports a variety of back-end management protocols to incorporate multiple vendor platforms and presents a normalized representation of statistics, configuration and faults to the administrator. Simply put, users can define network configuration profiles and effortlessly apply them to different portions of the network hierarchy, ultimately reducing the amount of administrative time required to manage the wireless LAN.
Enhanced visibility and control of wireless infrastructure for organizations with diverse WLAN deployments consisting of multiple vendors and equipment models. Administrators can obtain a uniform view into the network with security and network health/performance alerts.
It uses a plug-in architecture that abstracts vendor and device specific attributes from the end user, and allows the system to rapidly add new models without changing the UI or upgrading the system. IT departments can use the centralized management console to update device configurations and firmware and can automate the distribution of firmware updates to streamline management of consumer devices. Motorola AirDefense Infrastructure Management provides operations staff with granular visibility of firmware distribution status to enable comprehensive bulk campaign management.
