Key Features

Comprehensive Network Topology Information

RG-SNC displays visual topology of the network infrastructure. And all the devices are discovered through three ways: ARP table, routing table and network segment.

Topology management allows users to work on their networks topology. Many types of topology diagram are available, such as L3 global and user-defined topology diagram. In the diagram, the joining links between the devices and PCs reflects the real physical cable links. Users can hence monitor the connectivity among devices network segments, device status and link bandwidth in real-time.

Besides, users can drag device icons freely and to add or delete links & devices manually for a better displaying purpose of the physical network topology. Key link detection is another key feature of RG-SNC. The connectivity of some sensitive links can be tested periodically to make alerts before network failure happens.

The SNC offers additional features below:

Topology management: Offer strengthened topology discovery performance for Layer 2 and 3. With automatic network topology display, it supports monitoring of device status displayed by a customizable topology based on users’ needs. It also supports accurate location tracking and provides a complete list of devices, allowing users to view devices in groups or in personalized format based on the actual demands.

IP Surveillance

●Low-threshold Bandwidth Monitoring

The RG-SNC provides advanced low-threshold bandwidth management feature which can monitor the transmitted bandwidth of each IP camera for fault management purpose. When video is being recorded in the IP camera, a minimum amount of bandwidth is required for data streaming over IP network to the NVR server. This feature allows users or administrators to configure the minimum threshold bandwidth for each of the IP cameras and NVR applications. When there is an error or the IP camera recording function is not operating as normal, the low threshold rule with key link detection of low bandwidth will be triggered and the RG-SNC will provide proactive alert and alarm generation. This will facilitate the administrator to find the root cause easily with the unified management software.

This feature is mainly designed for environments and situations that require 24-hour video recording for high security purpose. CCTV surveillance is critical to a lot of industry such as large logistic sector, business banking environment and public sector which requires high security with video recording used as criminal evidence in court.

Low-threshold Bandwidth Monitoring

●Remote Power Management

The RG-SNC supports remote power management such as power on/off and power restart for wireless APs, IP cameras and other PoE-powered devices via the topology management view which facilitates operation and maintenance support. The RG-SNC enables remote power control of IP cameras instead of operating on the NVR. When the IP camera is not functioning properly, identify which device it is connected to and select the port which needs to restart the PoE power. The RG-SNC can control the PoE power in the switch to turn off or restart the device.
