Moxa Bolsters Network Control Panel With Device, Inventory Management
Event playback is one of the features of Moxa Inc.’s MXview network management software that allows managers of industrial networks to monitor the health and activity of their networks. The company has recently updated the product with new features for better device and inventory management. (Source: Moxa Inc.)
As industrial networks become more intelligent and are connected to more devices, there will be an increased need to manage and secure these devices. Adding these types of functionality to network control panels will help those in charge keep better track of all the myriad devices on an increasingly more complex network.
Excellent story. These kind of tools are essential for industrial networking to achieve its next level of development. With security issues and general management problems, there needs to be new tools that make all of this more manageable. Glad to see these developments.
Thanks, apresher. It's true--not only technology for the awareness of new connected devices but also security of them will become more important as industrial networks become more advanced and interconnected. This is something that's also happening in the typical company network as well, but as businesses have been using more mobile devices for some time, that industry is further along in securing the network.
What if algae borne of fertilizer runoff that pollutes rivers and lakes could be harvested and used as biofuel feedstock? What if the leftovers could be recycled into farm soil nutrients, eliminating at least some of the need for artificial fertilizers in the first place? Western Michigan University researchers have a plan.
Manufacturers of plastic parts recognize the potential of conformal cooling to reduce molding cycle times. Problem is, conformal molds require additive manufacturing (AM), and technologies in that space are still evolving. Costs also can be high, and beyond that, many manufacturing organizations lack the knowledge and expertise needed to apply and incorporate additive technologies into their operations.
