NASHVILLE, TN—July 24th, 2012— Perle Systems, a global provider of advanced Ethernet over fiber and secure device networking solutions, introduces PerleVIEW, enterprise-grade central management software for Perle Managed Media Converters. This multi-user, Windows server-based centralized management package simplifies the configuration, administration, monitoring and troubleshooting of Perle Fiber Media Converters in medium to large-scale deployments.

As information networks grow in size and businesses expect greater uptime and performance from their network backbone, there is an increased need to proactively monitor activity, notify when or before problems occur and provide alerting to administrators.

“To remotely access and manage large numbers of deployed devices one at a time is extremely inefficient and insecure,” says Al Davies, Director of Product Marketing. “Instead, network administrators require a secure centralized management package that can be used from any PC that has an Internet Browser. PerleVIEW is that package when it comes to Perle Media Converters.”

PerleVIEW is the most complete centralized management package for a managed media converter installation. This enterprise-grade solution is purpose built to work with Perle Managed Media Converters and is based on standardized Windows Server and SQL functionality to ensure security and reliability. Network Administrators, using their Internet Browser, can securely access PerleVIEW and manage 10’s, 100’s or thousands of Perle Media Converters from a centralized server. The management of the media converter network is simplified by using PerleVIEW for numerous tasks such as:

  • See all network problems at a glance and take appropriate action
  • Track inventory and display how the devices are performing
  • Gather statistics and run reports from network data stored in the SQL database
  • Schedule, or issue on-demand, mass deployment of firmware updates and configuration files
  • Backup and restore configuration
  • Automatically check the latest firmware levels

Customers can download full function copies of PerleVIEW for a free 30-day evaluation period from the Perle Systems website.
