Bothell, WA, United States, 2014/01/07 - Intact™ Intelligent Port Management System monitors port activity, adds phyical security - Leviton.com.
Leviton today introduced the Intact™ Intelligent Port Management System, a solution for fiber and copper networks that monitors port status and manages network changes. The system sends alerts and real-time information to IT managers, allowing them to diagnose problems and handle changes quickly using Intact software.
"Intact provides infrastructure managers with a monitoring solution that’s easy to use, economical, and works seamlessly across multiple systems and devices," said Mark Dearing, senior product manager for Leviton. "It's an open system with a simple interface that eliminates complexity, and it's the most cost-effective solution for a layer 1 infrastructure."
The Intact Patch Cord works through a programmable microchip with a unique identifier applied to one or both ends. The cords combine with Intact Patch Panels to communicate the port status to the Intact Device Manager through USB cable. LED lights on panels indicate the port's status and serve as visual guidance for work order execution. The Intact Device Manager hosts the system's software, which is accessible on any standard web browser over a corporate network, and is optimized for PCs, tablets and smartphones.
USB Intact Device Hubs are available to expand the number of Intact Patch Panels that can connect to an Intact Device Manager. Also, multiple Intact Device Managers operate together seamlessly, allowing the system to scale easily.
Existing QuickPort® Copper Panels (1RU, 24-port) and Opt-X Ultra® Fiber Enclosures (1RU, 2RU) are "intelligent-ready" and can be upgraded with Intact Panels on the rack to become an Intact intelligent device.
Intact software also allows users to assist technicians with changes and troubleshooting by managing work orders, logging events and creating network topologies. By providing visual displays and detailed connection information, the software makes it easy to navigate to the right panels and identify specific ports, eliminating accidental moves and changes. The software arrives pre-installed on the Intact Device Manager, so there's no additional set-up or configuration required.
As the only port management system with additional physical security, Intact Secure RJ (copper) and LC (fiber) Patch Cords include a patented locking mechanism that cannot be released without an extraction tool of the same color.
The Intact Intelligent Port Management System (Leviton.com/Intact) is available through Leviton's extensive distribution network.
