It is a stand-alone solution designed to work straight from the box and requires no installation of additional software or servers and is extremely simple to operate.

"The EPV solution for the small-to-medium business (SMB) market will give IT Infrastructure administrators a complete intelligent solution that offers the market's best price/performance,” commented Aunally Maloo, managing director of Mart Network Solutions Ltd., in a statement. “The use of EPV generates direct financial advantages, reducing total cost of ownership [TCO], capital expenditure [CAPEX] and operating expenses [OPEX (News - Alert)]. As an additional advantage, EPV can be easily upgraded to the RiT PatchView system, the industry's leading full-featured intelligent infrastructure management [IIM] solution, giving customers a clear migration path from initial installations to large-scale Enterprise deployments."

"The EPV solution supports up to 4,608 panel ports including remote sites, which is ideal for the SMB market and appropriate for all vertical markets,” Fab Boolaky, Giganet Networking Solutions product manager said. “As a 'plug-n-play' system, it requires no installation of additional software or servers, and is easy to install, configure and monitor, yet provides the comprehensive, real-time connectivity information needed to manage cabling infrastructure effectively."

By using proprietary intelligent scanners and panels to automatically collect up-to-date information regarding connectivity throughout the network. EPV system brings intelligence to existing communications systems. This connectivity information is displayed on an embedded web-based application, making it accessible wherever there is Internet connectivity. Moreover, due to immediate detection of connectivity changes, the system is able to send notifications and real-time alerts the moment a change occurs, both to the system GUI and to the IT staff via e-mail.
