XPRESS provides a unique, flexible and highly cost-effective platform for all kinds of business improvement initiatives - including regulatory compliance, return on investment analysis, capacity planning, customer service level reporting, as well as integration with network operations center (NOC) trouble-ticketing.
XPRESS delivers the following competitive advantages:
Hybrid Network and Systems Monitor & Control
XPRESS optionally manage every component in a network or system including:
• SNMP and Non-SNMP devices;
• Server platforms of any operating system
• Network applications & circuits
• Network intrusion detection
• Facilities and environmental conditions
XPRESS uses SNMP to poll and control network devices, network applications, servers, etc. In addition, The XPRESS Probe Agent is used to poll and control all other devices and systems. The XPRESS Probe Agent is built from innovative state-machine technology that provides management of virtually any device with a serial port, contact closure interface or VT100 terminal interface.
All devices, interfaces, systems and applications managed by XPRESS have a common user interface and information model. This information model provides a consistent, intuitive user interface to managed objects regardless of the management interface, device vendor or type of object.
XPRESS also provides Applications and Data Repository Monitoring including, database polling and real-time data extraction, Server and database management, Application resource management and Server Process management.
Comprehensive Management & Reporting Solution
XPRESS is an Integrated M&C platform providing the essential Fault, Performance, Configuration, Application and Security Management, delivering a single “dashboard” into the network. It provides state-of the-art, real-time web based graphical user interface for superior ad hoc customization, precise representation, and easy remote access via any device supporting a browser.
XPRESS also provides detailed alarm reporting management such as alarm & event correlation, metrics trending and device data reporting, external notification via SMS, pager, email and more. XPRESS provides different layer of user role creation therefore allowing individual permissions & configuration for every user.
XPRESS supports multiple server installations with a replicated, automatically synchronized directory of managed devices. And, XPRESS remote location based intelligent agent technology can be used to manage and control any device located anywhere on the network including devices located in a remote site location.
A redundant XPRESS server can be placed in the network to pickup the network monitoring and control should a remote XPRESS server become unavailable. And, with secure web access to the servers, XPRESS delivers a truly secure distributed solution. Also, XPRESS provides effective network traffic auto-topology dynamically discovering network objects and creating topology maps showing easy to view object relationships.
Scalable and Cost-efficient Solution
XPRESS is an open Source and open standards based system providing robust security, stability, and conformance to standards. Xpress provides the flexibility of creating a Centralized or a NOC-less enterprise M&C system with a distributed architecture to manage “your way”.
XPRESS uses Internet technology and standard protocols, file specifications, security methodologies, drawing products and software throughout its architecture. This translates into a highly stable, secure and scalable solution that easily grows with future network expansion. Xpress can be easily scale up by starting off with our entry level XPRESS LITE where it contains all the basic functionality to manage your network in a small scale. Subsequently, the system can be expanded as you need, without major disruptions by adding more XPRESS probe agents or Xpress add-on modules.
Alphaview uses the “pay as you grow” model where we provided modular licensing in our all our Xpress solutions. In addition, Alphaview uses Off the Shelf Hardware and does not depend on proprietary hardware. Thus, XPRESS is truly a customized and cost-efficient solution.
Open-based & Highly Customized Driver Concept
XPRESS is ready to use “out of the box” and highly customizable. XPRESS is a drop, load, and use application that automatically converts a host PC into a network management appliance. An automated installation process enables rapid deployment with a minimal training requirement. A powerful, easily customizable GUI and extensive library of objects and background images allow the user to create realistic network views and simplify the management and troubleshooting of even the most complex environments.
XPRESS is easily customized for specific local requirements. Screens, reports, thresholds and logic can be created or modified by local administrators. New device drivers and SNMP MIBs can be easily added at any time by local administrators to provide management and control of new devices added to the network.
