The HP IMC Wireless Services Manager Software provides unified management of wired and wireless networks. It works in conjunction with the Intelligent Management Center (IMC) platform adding network management functions into existing wired network management systems such as WLAN device configurations, performance monitoring, radio frequency heat mapping and WLAN service reports.

This IMC Wireless Services Manager Software provides uniformity over a wireless network even one that is geographically dispersed.

What's New

  • Leverage the next phase of Cisco and Aruba device support.
  • Identify necessary inventory with map and bill of materials (BOM) software.
  • Identify unwanted network users with Wireless Intrusion Detection (WIDS).
  • Import CAD maps and understand the layout of the network.
  • Leverage third-party applications with eAPI.

Features

Versatile Wireless Management Allows for More Efficient Network Management

  • The HP IMC Wireless Services Manager Software manages a multi-vendor wireless environment, including devices from Aruba and Cisco.
  • View both basic and extended performance monitoring for online fat access points (APs), fit APs, and clients.
  • Configure the WLAN network in a step-by-step manner, making network management much easier and faster.
  • Stay in the know with wireless service alarms, which promptly alert administrators of faults on the network based on system log entries set via user-defined rules.

Organized Data and Reports Assist in More Effective Network Decision Making

  • The HP IMC Wireless Services Manager Software provides reporting capabilities and summarizes performance data in easy-to-read visual graphs and charts.
  • Obtain a top down view of the network with robust topology management showing a location view of clients and access points (APs).
  • View real-time client monitoring information, allowing network administrators to see everyone from approved devices to rogue clients.
  • Detect any unwelcome visitors to the wireless network with the Wireless Intrusion Detection System (WIDS) and ensure the right visitors are on the network.

More Effective Networks for Better Coverage for a Better User Experience

  • The HP IMC Wireless Services Manager Software helps network administrators optimize their networks through radio frequency (RF) and network planning management.
  • Use the Radio Frequency Management function to understand what obstacles like concrete walls and doors might serve as barriers to a higher transmission rate.
  • Have peace of mind with network planning management which helps network administrators select AP models and plan AP deployment by analyzing coverage at specific locations prior to purchase.
  • Automatically detect which APs are connected to a switch's PoE ports, enabling remote management of those PoE ports.

Management

  • WLAN device management — manages HP MSM series ACs, fat APs (also called autonomous APs), and fit APs (also called controlled APs) through SNMP and protocol buffers, and manages Comware-based ACs, fat APs, and fit APs through SNMP; it also supports the Cisco wireless and Aruba wireless devices (Consult HP about the models supported by WSM). IMC WSM is able to manage up to 8,000 fit APs.
  • WLAN management
    • view and manage device information
    • view and export client history
    • show and modify radio information
    • view information about devices that provide wireless services with the same SSID and display information about fat APs, fit APs, and clients of specified SSID.
    • collect statistics on access ports of all manageable fat APs, fit APs, and rogue APs.
    • query information about AP access ports and enable or disable PoE
  • Wireless service alarming — promptly detect and resolve faults on the network. Polls wireless devices periodically to test their reachability and generates traps for unreachable devices. Generates alarms based on the traps received from ACs and fat APs, according to system and user defined alarm rules in the Alarm Management module. Administrators can set thresholds for WLAN performance monitoring to generate appropriate alarms.
  • Wireless performance monitoring — provides basic and extended performance monitoring and real-time monitoring for online fat APs, fit APs, and clients.
  • Batch configuration wizard — the batch configuration wizard can help users configure the WLAN network step by step, including WLANs, AP groups, and radio parameters
  • Wireless topology — provides wireless device topology (ACs and fat APs in WSM), Location view topology (APs and associated clients), Custom view topology (Fit APs and associated clients managed by a specific AC) and Mesh topology (AC and fat AP, MPP, MP, and MAP connections in a mesh network and client information).
  • RF
    • includes network planning management and RF management.
    • helps to select AP models and plan AP deployment by analyzing signal coverage at specific locations before you purchase APs.
    • creates a heat map predicated on the radio type, transmission rates, and obstacles such as concrete walls, windows, and metal barriers.
    • can sort APs by signal strength, access rate, channel, or SSID.
  • Client management — helps manage online clients, client online history, and client information. It displays all online clients that are connected to the WLAN on a client list to facilitate your management, including query client lists, detailed client information, export client information, configure sampling clients, modify client information, and view real-time client monitoring and history.
  • Performance monitoring — displays graphs and performance charts for wireless devices status, wireless alarms statistics, online client trending, and AP traffic monitoring; users can define tasks to monitor performance items of interest
  • WLAN reports — analyzes the data collected by WSM and also summarizes the performance data, such as AP performance, utilization, and service availability, and displays the data in a bar chart, line chart, or pie chart.
  • 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
  • WDS/mesh management — allows for managing of MP policy, mesh profile, mesh interface, and peer MAC address configurations for a specific wireless device.
  • PoE port management — automatically learns which APs are connected to a switch's PoE ports, enabling control of those PoE ports; fault AP can be set to perform a cold restart, which will be a fast resume
  • Wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS) — Provides early detection of malicious attacks and intrusions on a wireless network
  • Wireless intrusion detection system — provides early detection of malicious attacks and intrusions on a wireless network.
  • Support for radio resource management — provides configuration management of radio resources, including auto power, auto channel, and scheduling
  • Wireless location management — locates online clients, rogue clients, rogue APs, and iNode clients so that operators can determine the physical locations of wireless clients and rogue devices locate APs and connected clients. WSM supports AP-based sampling, iNode-based sampling, and GIS (Geographic Information System).
  • Real-time Spectrum Guard — scans the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands to detect interference and affected channels, as well as to generate real-time spectrum data; operators can obtain the wireless spectrum performance and WLAN security by viewing the current interference data and real-time spectrum data; real-time Spectrum Guard requires a license.
  • Network evaluation — enables to determine the AP operating status in an area to optimize the network based on the evaluation results and records. WSM periodically collects data for APs and clients in the specified location view and summarizes the collected data and evaluates the APs and clients based on the predefined thresholds. HP Wireless (Comware OS) is required
  • Energy Policy Management — allows you to apply policies to wireless devices for energy saving and cost reduction. Manageable wireless devices are APs, radios, and SSIDs
