R&MinteliPhy marks the beginning of a whole new era for network managers. Now, they can also manage their physical IT infrastructure fully automatically in real time. And they need neither special cables nor new patch panels. R&MinteliPhy is the intelligent, retrofittable solution for automated infrastructure management in data centers, company facilities and structured building cabling.
R&MinteliPhy Monitor and R&MinteliPhy Manage are two pillars of the AIM solution from R&M (AIM = automated infrastructure management). R&MinteliPhy Monitor consists of a small number of components that can be retrofitted:
- RFID tags for connectors
- Sensor strips for patch panels
- Analyzer for network cabinets
R&MinteliPhy Manage is the client-server solution with central database in a LAN or in a cloud. It offers numerous functions that can be automated plus routing and planning tools and extensive libraries for the management of cabling and IT infrastructure.
That is all a company needs to manage the passive infrastructure of a data center or corporate network from any location. And R&MinteliPhy grows with a company’s needs. Users have the flexibility to choose which part of their R&M infrastructure they wish to manage automatically and control fully and when.
The system records and monitors the network configuration in real time. It ensures complete monitoring of every port. It shows which ports are free or which racks still have space available. The administrator notices malfunctions immediately. Sets of documentation, cabinet layouts, labels or connection plans can be created error-free with a few clicks of a mouse. The result: greater transparency, more efficient management of quality and risks, improved compliance, and successful audits.
AIM is urgently needed because data centers have no leeway anymore. Resource utilization has to be maximized. No one can allow themselves the luxury of delays, downtimes or mistakes. Change requests have to be carried out immediately and perfectly. ITIL and other rules set narrow limits. Manual data management is subject to a natural error rate.
By contrast, a reliable AIM system delivers an absolute overview of the status and configuration of the network and does so in real time. AIM replaces manual activities with standardized processes. After covering the initial expenses, a company can dramatically reduce operating expenses. The payback period for an investment in an AIM system is typically less than a year.
