The managed chassis models of the High-Density Media Converter System II become fully manageable if you add this optional SNMP Management Module. It features a 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX twisted-pair port for connection to your LAN and is used in the chassis to enable both module and chassis management. Once connected to your network, a chassis can even be assigned its own IP address. The software included with the SNMP Management Module enables you to configure and manage your chassis and its connections. Through the user-friendly IView interface, you can manage the chassis' modules and any intelligent networking devices on virtually any 32-bit Windows system. The GUI features device control panels, gives you detailed conversion port information, presents statistical information as charts, and more! And because the management module includes SNMP MIBs for support of industry-standard SNMP, you can monitor chassis temperature and voltage levels, diagnose network problems, and set up SNMP traps to alert you to potential network failures to lessen any potential downtime. You can even set a SNMP write-lock switch to protect the configurations of your installed modules from being accidentally overwritten. For out-of-band management, connect a console to the SNMP module's RS-232 port. The managed system uses DCHP, includes a TFTP client, and supports Telnet.
