With inteliPhy net 4.0, it is easy to specifically select the most relevant data, display it clearly and raise an alarm in the case of an error.
Configurable dashboard widgets and other features allow users to handle data in new ways. Users can view and validate end-to-end physical connections, associate devices, and drag and drop links.
Metamodels for Planning
Furthermore, users can create their own metamodels with inteliPhy net 4.0. A metamodel can represent a pre-configured device with various plug-in cards or a completely assembled and wired cabinet. One simple step is all it takes to integrate a complete metamodel into an existing data center. The time-consuming construction of cabinets from individual components is no longer necessary.
inteliPhy net 4.0 contains tools with which Optical Distribution Frames (ODF) can be configured and visualized. This function is suitable for planning the setup of 19” and ETSI-based meet-me rooms. The software inventories the IT equipment and applications. A powerful global search function for quickly finding specific devices rounds out the feature set of inteliPhy net 4.0, optimized both in terms of performance and ease of use.
