Product details

Monitoring/SNMP

Function: receive CATCenter NEO status info

Operation via: web interface/SNMP

Efficiency: 1 cluster

The "CCNEO Monitoring" feature allows you to detect the system status of G&D devices. The web interface of the particular device provides these information, which can also be sent (SNMP trap) or queried (SNMP GET).

Both the monitoring function and SNMP trap and agent are included in the scope of supply. The information section shows the configuration settings and the detected status values of the device.

Among others, the following status values can be monitored:

  • Device's main power supply
  • Device's redundant power supply
  • Device's temperature

Status changes (e.g. power on/off) and exceeding defined threshold values (e.g. temperatures)  highlight these values in red in the web interface. Based on defined parameters, the device also notifies the administrator.

The monitoring values ​​can also be obtained from AMX Crestron control.

Easier access with SNMP tool Zabbix

For customers who are not yet using extensive SNMP tools, G&D offer a simple way to use the functions included in the devices. Templates for the open source tool Zabbix are provided here. The program lets users monitor SNMP-capable devices in a network and, among other things, issues warning notifications about critical device states, which have been received via SNMP trap.

Application field of the CATCenter NEO

The CATCenter NEO is designed for the deployment in applications with large traffic and an accordingly large number of computers and simultaneous accesses. The application can even be placed at several locations.

Thanks to their modularity, the matrix switches can be adapted to growing functions as well as a growing amount of computers that need to be connected. The devices are deployed e.g. for administrating large server rooms, control centres or OB vans.

The main differences to other compact KVM matrix switches are:

  • Possibility to switch audio signals
  • Configuration via web interface
  • All variants provide network ports
  • Up to 128 consoles
