The benefits of the Molex Real Time Patching
Much less time needs to be allocated to the
relocation and replacement of equipment. The Real Time Patching
System can indicate the location of the equipment in question, and
indicate when it has been successfully connected.
Identifies the source of problem
Comparison to a customer-defined database allows
the Real Time Patching System to flag disconnections to the
network manager, even by e-mail or on a pager.
Improves MAC process
Moves, Adds and Changes (MACS) are simplified by
the use of computer generated work order. The progress of these
work orders can be monitored anywhere in the world via a web
By identifying the active connections to network
equipment, the Real Time Patching System will provide the network
manager with visibility of equipment utilisation. This way spare
network capacity can be tracked, preventing un- necessary spending
on expensive network hardware.
With the ability to integrate with a camera you
never need worry about who is conducting unauthorized moves, adds
and changes ever again. You can have their picture e-mailed to
you! With the addition of optional events any sort of alarm is
also possible. Details of any unauthorized changes may also be
sent by e-mail. The Real Time Patching System can help prevent
The ability to know the current state of your
network at any given point in time, including all the users and
their associated services and equipment is useful at the best of
times. In a disaster recovery situation Real Time can provides
current DR documentation on the enterprise equipment and cabling
infrastructure. An accurate immediate report can be generated at
the time of disaster detailing all equipment and cabling required
for recovery purposes.
By automatically creating audit trail
information it is possible to produce detailed statistics on
network utilisation and associated work actions, enabling downtime
to be further reduced.
Knowing what is happening Real Time in the
physical network puts the network manager back in control of the
By significantly improving the efficiency and
accuracy of your moves, adds and changes (MACS), and by reducing
un-necessary expenditure elsewhere on your network hardware,
significant cost savings can be brought about by the
implementation of the Molex Real Time Patching System.
