Intelligent Management Software manages hardware, monitors the health of all the cabling components and also collects network data using its own discovery mechanism as well as data from external applications. IMS can be deployed in centralised or distributed configurations and can manage sites locally and remotely. Using this 100% accurate data, it builds and maintains a database, a trusted source of information on all network components and their connectivity to other network components. It immediately identifies disconnected devices and users, enabling proactive network troubleshooting and reducing mean-time-to-repair (MTTR).

Building on this accurate data, IMS automates and accelerates a broad variety of previously manual tasks, including automated provisioning, work order planning and execution, reporting capabilities, production and management, guided moves, adds and changes (MAC) and maintenance forensics, web-based configuration, connection troubleshooting, security monitoring, utilization optimization and others.

IMS Core is mainly used for cabling documentation and includes IMS Software plus Report Centre (1 user). IMS Standard is the core package plus the ability to detect and monitor network equipment and includes IMS Software plus Discovery and Report Centre (1 user). IMS Advanced allows leveraging the system’s capabilities in provisioning and utilising the system’s values to the fullest extent, not only at the maintenance stage of the network, but also during planning and implementation. It includes VIMS Software plus Discovery, Report Centre (1 user), Provisioning Module, Site Pro (1 user) and CAD module. Other Modules are available
