HP Intelligent Management Center Basic WLAN Manager Software Platform


  • HP Intelligent Management Software (IMC) — cohesively integrates fault management, element configuration, and network monitoring from a central vantage point; built-in support for third-party devices enables network administrators to centrally manage all network elements with a variety of automated tasks, including discovery, categorization, baseline configurations, and software images; the software also provides configuration comparison tools, version tracking, change alerts, and more
  • Centralized deployment model — IMC Basic software delivers an extensive set of capabilities for managing small heterogeneous wired and wireless networks and is designed for simplicity and ease of use
  • Rich resource management — IMC software provides powerful network discovery and topology, including a detailed inventory of the network and highly accurate depictions of how it is configured; supported views include Layer 2 and 3, and the ability to create custom views like a dashboard homepage; customization enables administrators to organize and control the network infrastructure based on their preferred organizational model
  • Integrated sFlow traffic analysis — using the integrated sFlow traffic analysis, the system can collect flow information from sFlow-capable devices; through traffic analysis, IMC Basic software can help identify network bottlenecks, recognize anomalous traffic, and pinpoint varying levels of bandwidth traffic for different services and applications
  • Flexible, centralized reporting — simplifies an organization's report administration; flexible historical reports provide the information needed for network trend analysis and capacity planning, and offer predefined reports or customization options to define parameters; reports can be viewed in a number of formats, including .pdf and .xls, and can be sent automatically via email, or be scheduled to run at a set timeframe
  • IMC mobile application — IMC software provides a new mobile application for the iPhone and the Android operating system; this provides administrators with the flexibility to monitor the network while away from their offices
  • Telnet/SSH Proxy — with the Telnet/SSH proxy, an administrator can use a browser to remotely access and manage devices through Telnet/SSH without installing a Telnet/SSH tool on the PC client used to access the device; this promotes secure and controlled access to devices while providing an audit of changes made on any device
  • Traffic topology — is based on the network's physical topology and enables users to view the traffic conditions of various links
  • Performance monitoring — IMC Basic software provides new ways to view performance data; includes four interface performance views: TopN, trend analysis, summary data, and at a glance; the GUI is flexible and allows for instant viewing, switching between multiple views, and quick access to the various interface performance summary views; WSM displays graphs and performance charts for wireless device status, wireless alarms statistics, online client trending, and AP traffic monitoring
  • Network data collection — generates, packages, and sends archived information about your network, device, or IMC software to the appropriate HP Networking support or sales organizations in one simple step; this feature gathers the data you selected and then generates reports and data files containing the relevant information; finally, it delivers the reports to your selected destination, either by email, FTP, SFTP, or to a file location
  • WLAN device management — supports HP MSM series WLAN devices, including controllers, fit APs, and fat APs; provides access controller list, access controller detail information, fit/fat access point list, and fit/fat access point detail information
  • Wireless status view — displays key information in one place; provides north-south status views (high-level information on network health down to the detailed status of services such as RADIUS running on your controllers); for controllers, it maintains the status of mobility activity, DHCP Server, VPNs, ports, VLANs, IPSec, and RADIUS; for APs, the software provides details on usage at the client level down to the CPU load level, and across neighbors and local meshes
  • WLAN management — automatically displays WLAN SSIDs in your network, compares performance, and relates APs to the WLAN by SSID
  • Batch configuration wizard — helps users configure the WLAN network step by step, including WLANs, AP groups, and radio parameters
  • Topology views — displays logical and physical views of a WLAN by AP, controller, or WLAN so that status as well as detailed information can be viewed in real time; provides links that allow you to quickly click and find device location
  • Client management — tracks client connection history and provides top-down (AP-to-client) and bottom-up (client-to-AP) views to ease the troubleshooting of connection issues
  • WLAN reports — abundant WLAN service reports are available, including AP statistics, radio statistics, client statistics, and traffic statistics
  • Wireless terminal trace display — logs the online and offline records of a wireless terminal and uses these records to display the movements of the wireless terminal in the location view
  • PoE port management — the software can automatically learn which APs are connected to a switch's PoE ports, enabling control of those PoE ports; if necessary, a cold restart of a faulty AP can be made through the software, providing a fast resumption of the device
