EKS angel has introduced a new modular software platform. It includes features that are scalable in steps. The self-explanatory user interface allows for easy configuration and diagnostics of our "managed switches". Furthermore, it can also be accessed via smartphone and tablet for the management, whereby almost ready, all status information anywhere.
This not only increases the network availability, but is also a prerequisite for flexible maintenance concepts according to the industry 4.0 approach. In addition, the software platform is an important component for realizing customer-specific projects faster - in weeks instead of months.
The new software platform, like the hardware, is based on a modular concept, which enables tailor-made modular solutions. "This goes far beyond the graphic implementation of corporate design," emphasizes project manager Christian Gieseler. For example, customer-specific menus can be seamlessly integrated so that a product is created "from a single source". The software function blocks range from quality of service to reliable ring redundancy mechanisms and extensive diagnostic options.
A self-explanatory user interface makes it easy to configure and monitor the switches, even without special IT knowledge. It is also possible to customize the homepage individually.
