SPECTRUMSOFTTM WIRELESS NETWORK MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

The Complete Management Tool for Wireless Networks
Network management is a necessity in today's large and complex WAN/LAN enterprise environment. Standard network management tools do not adequately address the dynamic aspects associated with wireless networks and mobile computing, such as cell association, roaming, random connections, and power management. SpectrumSoft Wireless Network Management System (WNMS) from Symbol Technologies fills this need by providing administrators with the most complete package available for configuring and managing their Spectrum24 networks. 
WNMS provides a migration and expansion path from single site management to complete integrated enterprise management systems such as OpenView, Tivoli/NetView, and Unicenter TNG. WNMS allows your wireless management system to grow with your organization. 
Comprehensive Yet Easy to Use
SpectrumSoft WNMS is seamlessly integrated into the corporate enterprise network management platform. Constructed using proven network management standards (SNMP, MIB-2), WNMS provides the most comprehensive solution to the unique aspects of wireless networks. The system has been designed for ease of use. The graphical user interface provides an intuitive tool for navigating, examining, and managing the wireless network. Symbol Technologies is committed to providing fully integrated technology solutions that address business issues. With WNMS, IT managers now have the tools to install, configure, centrally monitor and manage their entire enterprise, wired and wireless.
