HP PCM+ network management software enables mapping, network and device configuration, and monitoring. HP PCM+ provides security and extensibility for small to large networks with remote sites. Network-wide management control allows users to securely add, customize, and restrict network management access. With HP security and wireless solutions, as well as extended support, HP PCM+ offers a single-pane management solution. With remote agent extensibility, the software can manage many remote sites with encrypted communications and firewall traversal. Customers will gain superior return on management, security, choice, and flexibility.
Easy-to-deploy and use network management platform
easy to install and configure, requires no additional software or service, and often provides valuable network management information in less than 30 minutes; presents dashboards that provide administrators with an intuitive overview of network status and the ability to drill down into the details; utilizes wizards to assist administrators with some of the most common management tasks.
Web user interface-including mobile view
Web-based interface simplifies monitoring from anywhere and improves performance for distributed deployments; a mobile view is available to help ensure that administrators can monitor and troubleshoot from their mobile devices.
Comprehensive network visibility
Provides views of the network using maps or lists of devices; provides views across the network or by subnet, VLAN, or custom group; allows users to annotate maps with port or connection information as well as traffic levels.
Network services monitoring
Provides proactive monitoring and reporting on the network services that businesses rely on (e.g. HTTP, DHCP, DNS, and FTP); provides an instant view of network service availability and response time.
PoE visualization and monitoring
Real-time and historical view of network PoE availability and usage allows administrators to see when PoE is oversubscribed and proactively balance PoE devices across a PoE infrastructure.
Device configuration monitoring
Automatically monitors device configuration changes, providing a complete history of changes with the ability to quickly view what changes were made and when; with the ability to compare configurations across time or devices, PCM+ helps administrators to easily identify configuration issues.
Device configuration changes
Policy-based configuration makes deployment of devices a snap and can identify devices that do not adhere to policies; PCM+ makes it easy to make configuration changes to one or many devices at the same time.
Event alerting and analysis
Includes event monitoring and filtering capabilities that allow users to view, acknowledge, and sort network events; a summary displays device as well as PCM+ application events and categorizes them by severity, making it easier to identify where bottlenecks or problems exist in the network.
Network performance monitoring
Integrated traffic monitoring delivers detailed network performance views across the entire network with minute-by-minute views of the volume and content of traffic; using the sFlow traffic sampling technology embedded in many HP networking devices, PCM+ can provide detailed traffic views of up to 10,000 monitored segments.
Endpoint awareness and VoIP device tracking
A device map view clearly displays which endpoints are directly connected to the device, including phones, cameras, PCs, and authenticated users; provides real-time location and inventory reporting for VoIP phones, including network details such as VLAN assignment, QoS setting, and PoE status.
User-defined custom groups allow administrators to create collections based on their unique organization of the network; provides the ability to view, take action, or apply policies across these custom groups.
Script wizardProduct Highlights
Allows customers or service providers to securely extend the PCM+ capabilities with custom scripts; handles device authentication and interactions, making the scripts secure and easier to create.
