Falcon Electric's USHA SNMP/HTTP Agent

Contributed

Falcon Electric has introduced an internal USHA SNMP/ HTTP agent that supports TCP/IP-based remote Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) monitoring and management agents.

Supporting HTTP and a security-improved Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) v3 together the with the latest Internet protocol, IPv6, Falcon's new agent is a secure system for the remote monitoring and management of UPSes, the company said.

The internal agent enables remote UPS monitoring and management over any Ethernet LAN, enterprise network or the Internet. Users install the agent board into the communications option slot of any Falcon SG, SSG or FN series UPS and connect it to any Ethernet LAN. If a DHCP server is present, the agent automatically assigns an IP address.

Users can access a UPS remotely using most common Web browsers or through the use of network management software such as HP OpenView or IBM NetView, using the included RFC 1628-compliant management information base, or MIB.

Available now, the USHA SNMP/HTTP sells for $290.
