Connectivity Suite

Centralized Management System for VPN Based Networks

Connectivity Suite

The NetModule Connectivity Suite is a lean device and network management system, which simplifies device overview, installation and maintenance of a NetModule router network thanks to central administration.

Description

The ongoing digitalization (IoT) and its high demand for system interoperability increases complexity of rapid growing networks and components. The maintenance of devices is inefficient and extremely expensive if a technician has to access devices on-site. Also, manual remote access to individual devices should be avoided as firmware or configuration updates must be performed for each device separately.

Connectivity Suite, a web-based and modular management platform for NetModule routers solves these problems. It supports administrators to integrate, configure and monitor their devices from one location in a secure way.
So-called network tenants allow logical grouping and separation of several network sites within one management platform. The responsible technician can only access the tenants and devices he has been assigned to.
Every tenant is served by its own VPN server, to which the routers connect automatically after a simple initial configuration and certificate assignment - juggling with IP addresses and certificates is no longer necessary! Connectivity Suite automates the management of secure communication between server, tenants and devices with proven encryption techniques such as OpenVPN, SSL and IPsec.
The configuration management gives instant access to latest configuration of any device and enables bulk configuration updates. Firmware and configuration updates can be scheduled so that they’re executed automatically at the desired time.
The health platform component continuously supervises the connection status of devices and networks. The overall status is part of the platform dashboard.

The Linux platform builds on state of the art technologies, such as a uniform REST API. It allows the integration of Connectivity Suite into existing 3rd party tools or the functionality could be extended with additional components. By being powerful enough for projects with hundreds of devices Connectivity Suite guarantees a sustainable investment. The platform can also be installed on-premises. This ensures the confidentiality, authenticity and integrity of the data and information flows.
