Lan-Secure Switch Center

Network Monitoring Software


Switch Center Datasheet

Product Overview

Switch Center is network management and monitoring software for managed network switches, routers and hubs from any vendor supporting SNMP BRIDGE-MIB that helps to discover, monitor and analyze network connectivity and performance and provides real-time network discovery, mapping and topology solution for IT environments.

Switch Center can be connected through any network port without the need of remote agents or special network configuration. The unique network discovery and monitoring engine provides complete network topology mapping and performance of local and remote network devices and nodes with interconnecting trunks and VLANs information. The software supports SNMPv1/2 and SNMPv3 discovery options including VLANs monitoring engine and port mapping capabilities. The built-in central software viewer supports multiple management levels and provides automatic network discovery and mapping using OSI Layer 2 and Layer 3 topology monitoring including real-time reports, statistics and alerts.

Switch Center can be combined with Network Access Control (NAC) monitoring engine that implements 802.1X capabilities on any network switch port using Switch Center Protector to enforce network organization policy and create complete management solution for network monitoring and security.
