The NETGEAR Network Management System NMS200 allows for smarter management of NETGEAR infrastructures. Powerful, scalable, and simple to use, this management platform is installed and ready to use in a matter of minutes. NMS200 offers a single console for extensive visibility, granular control, and seamless automation across the entire network. By normalizing how the infrastructure is discovered, configured and monitored, administrators can save time, reduce errors, and increase operational efficiency.
Discovery and Mapping
NMS200 automatically discovers all NETGEAR compatible equipment, interfaces, physical and logical connectivity, using various protocols and centralized credentials. NMS200 periodically “re-syncs” with the environment to ensure accurate network integrity. IT administrators can maintain a complete inventory of NETGEAR managed infrastructure and easily view the network environment in the customizable topology viewer. The NETGEAR Network Management System displays the network logically and geographically – enabling IT teams to see conditions as they occur and gain additional network knowledge by drilling down in detail with a mouse click to sub-components and logical connections.
NMS200 configuration management capabilities let administrators automatically maintain, back-up, restore, and compare network device configurations, eliminating the inefficiency and errors associated with manual configuration. Using an easy-to-use graphical user interface, administrators can configure devices, save, and update configuration data with direct access. The NETGEAR Network Management System also centralizes firmware/OS management: firmware versions can be deployed to individual devices or groups of devices, based on a schedule.
The NMS200’s built-in monitors accurately collect and analyze real-time health-affecting conditions and performance metrics for NETGEAR managed equipment, indicating current and historical performance. The NMS200 provides graphical dashboards for key device performance indicators as well as service performance metrics, to consistently ensure the network is meeting the expectations. Based on pre-defined and user-defined criteria, the management platform escalates appropriate issues as alarms via multiple notification methods – the Alarm Viewer, via email or pager, to 3rd-party systems, etc. System-initiated operations such as script-execution, configuration backups and/or restorations can be automatically triggered, while NMS200 displays dependable and filterable record of all events and alarms that have occurred in the environment, for troubleshooting and remediation purposes.
