Eaton Corporation introduced an intuitive, cost-effective, and secure way for IT managers and administrators to remotely manage and monitor all their networked power and environmental devices across the enterprise. The software, known as Intelligent Power Manager software, is a scalable program that can substantially lower costs for supervising networked and associated equipment compared to using major network management system platforms. Intelligent Power Manager can carry out a scan for all the UPS systems regardless of vendor, using both XML Web services and SNMP protocols. It also discovers and manages other critical power components, such as ePDU products, shutdown modules and environmental sensors to give administrators comprehensive control of their protected infrastructure.
