Software & Configuration Management
Avalanche saves you time and money by making it easy to manage devices. Preloaded on devices from a growing list of manufacturers, the Avalanche Enabler can automatically find the Avalanche system, eliminating the need for administrators to carry out extensive device discovery efforts. Avalanche also makes extensive use of Profiles and Groups, which allows administrators to predefine configuration details that can be automatically applied to new devices meeting specified criteria, rather than provisioning each device individually as it is added.
Avalanche has always delivered a high level of security to customers and still remains the complete solution for 802.11 provisioning via extensive support for industry standard encryption and authentication protocols. Avalanche supports a full range of wireless encryption and authentication protocols, including WEP (Key Rotation), WPA with TKIP, WPA2 with AES-CCMP, and 802.1X based EAP types such as LEAP, PEAPv0, PEAPv1, EAP-TTLS and EAP-TLS. With Avalanche, organizations have additional tools available to manage and monitor security settings across the entire wireless ecosystem. With improved rogue AP detection and reporting with various IDS-oriented enhancements to assist with identification, alerting, monitoring, and reporting of potential threats, Avalanche gives administrators a full view into the state of the enterprise’s security. System security is ensured through the encryption of communication channels and database encryption on sensitive fields such as passwords and keys.
Mobile Help Desk
With Avalanche, administrators can remotely diagnose and remedy both applications and device settings, or simply provide assisted guidance for an end-user. Avalanche allows administrators to control the device as if they were physically holding it. A mobile help desk solution such as Avalanche reduces your mobile device downtime and increases end-user productivity.
The architecture of Avalanche minimizes LAN, WAN, Wireless WAN overhead and optimizes network resources. Services may be centralized, or located at the managed remote locations to suit the network topology. Client devices adjust automatically to the available bandwidth.
Escape the limitations of vendor-specific management solutions with Avalanche. Avalanche provides broad support for devices from every major manufacturer and type, including everything from legacy DOS-based devices, to wireless printers, barcode scanners, and RFID readers. Additionally, all types of handheld mobile computers, access points, wireless switches, Ethernet-to-Wifi converters, flight data recorders, time clocks and other embedded OS devices are included.
Location Based Services
Avalanche provides an accurate view of both where and how assets are being used. This feature provides detailed information regarding the location of mobile devices under management using GPS and bolsters wireless WAN management capabilities. Avalanche allows administrators to physically locate where the device was and when it was last operational. If a device is ever lost or stolen, Avalanche can help track that device down to the street level, regardless of its location across the globe.
Ease of Use
Avalanche streamlines batch provisioning with the Scan-to-Configure feature that allows configuration parameters to be set using scanned, secure barcodes. Whether it’s a new device that needs configuring or an existing device that needs new settings, the Scan-to-Configure feature drastically reduces the time associated with device set-up and staging.
Performance & Statistics
Access a full range of predefined and customizable reports to help optimize network performance and respond to audit requirements. Included reports cover network and mobile device activity, as well as installed software, asset/inventory information and current configuration of individual devices.
Alerts & Reports
Instantly be alerted to critical events by setting alert profiles to notify you about network resource failures, security threats or other important events. Notifications can be routed via e-mail or pager and forwarded to other enterprise network management systems such as Tivoli, HP OpenView or CA Unicenter.Rich Reporting
