Discover the advantages that LigoWave products bring to the wireless world
WNMS is a FREE enterprise grade Wireless Network Management System. A single software solution simplifies a large number of management and monitoring tasks for network administrators. LigoWave’s comprehensive network management system supports several thousands of nodes. Multiple networks may be maintained and monitored using one server. A rich feature set helps to diagnose network problems effectively, visualize networks on a map, perform scheduled firmware upgrades automatically, track states of devices, get failure alerts, and collect statistics. The Web-based system environment supports multi-user accounts. Several administrators may manage different networks on the same server, without having access to each other’s equipment.
The WNMS system architecture allows configuring or performing firmware upgrades on any network infrastructure. Monitored devices can be on a LAN behind a NAT or on a WAN. The scalable software design is perfectly suited for small and large networks. Rapidly growing networks may be split it into smaller logical groups (smaller networks) and assigned to different administrators. All information about the devices that are monitored (name, MAC, serial number, IP, firmware version) is stored on the WNMS server. Information storage in a single place, quick search capabilities, and data export options simplify inventory management. Each network device can be monitored individually with predefined tracking parameters (standard and custom based on SNMP value). Reported alerts are shown on the WNMS dashboard in real time. The system can notify contacts (via email) when problems arise and when they are resolved. Alert history is stored on the server allowing analysis of failures.
