Why Network Management Is Important
For control engineers, their primary goal is to ensure that they have system availability, but they often do this without focusing on the network status. This is becoming problematic because even though the Industrial Internet of Things is helping to connect more and more devices, it is unfortunately increasing network complexity and introducing new security risks. Without network visibility, it is very difficult to identify the root cause of problems. Control engineers often have to revert to trial and error to get the system back to normal, which is time consuming and troublesome.
What if control engineers had clear visibility of the network status and could quickly identify the root cause of network downtime?
Moxa’s industrial network management software offers visibility of operational technology (OT) that allows network operators to make more informed decisions throughout network deployment, maintenance, and diagnostics. Furthermore, MXview now supports the MXview Wireless module to extend this visibility to Wi-Fi networks, featuring dynamic topologies for at-a-glance monitoring and roaming playback for more efficient troubleshooting.

MXview's new interface helps users easily
integrate network management software
into their existing systems such as SCADA
via OPC DA tags or RESTful APIs.
Manage Device Security
MXview and MXconfig provide visibility
and control to enhance device security.
Users can view the security status of
devices at a glance and quickly enhance
the security of their devices.
Understand Why Our Customers Chose MXstudio
Real-time Network Visibility of a Rail Network
A high-speed railway operator built a fiber Ethernet backbone for data
transmission between its Operation Management Center and multiple
stations to ensure high network availability. In order to manage large-
scale networks effectively, the customer chose Moxa's industrial network
management software to help their automation engineers view detailed
Integrating Industrial Networks and Enterprise Networks
A communication device manufacturer wanted to integrate their industrial
networks and enterprise networks to increase operational efficiency. To
achieve this goal, IT engineers needed to manage both enterprise and
manufacturing networks at the same time. The customer chose MXview
it provides RESTful API, which allowed the IT engineers to monitor the
network from a single monitor. In addition, by deploying industrial-grade
devices with fast recovery times, Moxa helped the customer ensure the
reliability of their industrial networks.
Increase Network Device Security With Just a Few Clicks
A water and waste system spanned the majority of a European city
and was monitorable from an industrial network. The local government
wanted to increase the network security in order to keep the infrastructure
secure. As the plant manager was not an expert on network security and
this project had to be implemented quickly, it was a challenge to ensure that
the network security was sufficient in a short period of time. MXview's
Security View was the ideal solution because it offered a way for the plant
manager to visualize the network security status. Equipped with network
visibility, the plant manager could direct resources to the parts of the network
that needed additional security features. In addition, MXconfig Security Wizard
helped the plant manager to identify the critical security parameters. This
information was passed to the control engineers who were able to quickly
ensure that the device configurations met the industry standards.
