ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BICSI -- RiT Technologies
(Nasdaq: RITT), the pioneer of intelligent physical layer management solutions
(IPLMS), today launched PVMax(TM), a powerful new hardware platform for its
widely-deployed PatchView(TM) real-time network management solution. The
launch follows a successful six-month beta trial during which PVMax, together
with the latest version of RiT's PatchView for the Enterprise(TM) (PV4E)
software, was used to manage more than 80,000 ports in one communication room
at a customer site.
PVMax will be showcased with PV4E Version 3.3 at the BICSI (Building
Industry Consulting Service International, Inc.) Winter Conference in Orlando
in booth # 1013.
For over ten years, RiT has been developing products which provide an
accurate physical connectivity map of network devices. As the result of
ongoing customer feedback, this latest product sets new records in terms of
ease of use, implementation and maintenance benefits and dramatically improved
ROI. Together with the latest management software version, PV4E 3.3, PVMax
demonstrates functionality which greatly enhances its value to enterprises of
all sizes - from small to very large.
From initial setup all the way through to day-to-day implementation, PVMax
reduces the work load of IT departments. During the setup of new
communications infrastructure, PVMax's "self-discovery" feature automatically
identifies all system elements, verifying and documenting network
connectivity, and making setup time simpler and shorter. The new flexible
architecture translates into support for sites of any size, regardless of
number of ports.
Once installed, organizations can continue to benefit from ongoing
implementation of the solution. To take MAC (Moves, Adds or Changes)
efficiency to the next level, RiT has added a highly visible flashing rack
indicator to each rack. Within the rack, the specific port to be worked on is
indicated by a smaller LED located next to the port. The combination of the
flashing rack indicator and the smaller port light make for even faster, more
fool-proof, MACs and significantly reduces response time to physical layer
faults that cause costly downtime.
Among the other new features in PV4E 3.3, designed to help IT managers and
administrators, are event notification to email, pagers, or SMS and the
ability to upload software to remote PVMax installations.
"PatchView has always set the bar for IPLMS performance, and now it is
better than ever," said Liam Galin, President and CEO of RiT Technologies.
"PVMax brings a new level of size, speed, intelligence, and flexibility to
PatchView deployments, making them even more powerful and cost-effective. The
new features reflect RiT's decade of experience deploying more than 2.5
million managed ports and recent advances in our cutting-edge technologies."
Members of the RiT team will be available to demonstrate and explain the
PatchView IPLMS, including the PVMax platform and PV4E v3.3, from January 12-
15th at its booth #1013 in the BICSI Winter Conference.
