Siemens Industry Automation Division launches new network management software

Topology and performance monitoring of industrial Ethernet networks

By CBR Staff Writer

The Siemens Industry Automation Division has developed new network management software, which is designed to monitor and visualise the topology, availability and performance of industrial Ethernet networks.

The company said that the Sinema Server (Simatic Network Manager) software automatically recognises changes in the network and helps to identify and clear malfunctions.

The new offering documents the utilisation and availability of a network over any chosen period.

At regular specified intervals, the software recognises any change to the network, including all components within the network from whatever manufacturer (autodiscovery) and displays the current topology and any changes.

An extended, detailed diagnosis is available for Scalance network components.

The firm said several users can access the Sinema Server data simultaneously from any location using a Web browser and the display can be personalised for each user.

The content can be displayed on monitors in the production facility using HMI (Human Machine Interface) or Scada (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems.

The software supports protocols such as OPC, SNMP, LLDP, DCP and "Ping".
