IRIS slashes 80% re­mote net­work man­age­ment is­sues

OffComm News - - PRODUCT NEWS -

In Novem­ber 2015, BVM Lim­ited added ca­pa­bil­i­ties to help with the man­age­ment of re­mote sys­tems from a cen­tral lo­ca­tion. The ad­di­tion, called iRIS, has been added to some of the com­pany’s SBCs ( sin­gle board com­put­ers), Panel PCs, and com­plete em­bed­ded sys­tems. This is a soft­ware suite with an as­so­ci­ated, small mez­za­nine card that can be in­serted in a header on the SBC.

Em­bed­ded In­tel­li­gence

Skip­ping past the need to go into the op­er­at­ing sys­tem, or lo­gin shell, to im­ple­ment re­mote con­trol, the iRIS card is in­de­pen­dently pow­ered from a 5V standby line. This means that it can help to power on/ off un­re­spon­sive sys­tems through an em­bed­ded WAN or sep­a­rate WiFi con­nec­tion. Mul­ti­ple sys­tem alert chan­nels are pro­vided via email, SMS, as well as di­rect to the man­age­ment server. In ad­di­tion, video stream­ing record and event trig­ger set­tings give oper­a­tors a real- time ac­tiv­ity view. iRIS is IPMI ( In­tel­li­gent Plat­form Man­age­ment In­ter­face), 2.0 com­pli­ant and 3.0 ready for IPv6 sup­port. In tri­als, iRIS demon­strated that more than 80% of prob­lems with re­mote sys­tems can be re­solved over a net­work. Fur­ther, if an en­gi­neer does have to at­tend site, the di­ag­nos­tic and log­ging ca­pa­bil­ity of iRIS re­duce the on- site time re­quired, typ­i­cally by more than 15%.
