High availability for graphical user interfaces and the network
Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has introduced HiView in the EMEA region, a new tool that gives access to the graphical user interfaces (GUIs) of managed switches in its Hirschmann™ range, without the need for a web browser. This tool, which supports a variety of Windows and Linux operating systems, also serves as a client for the network management software Industrial HiVision. Java libraries no longer need to be installed on users’ computers, thus increasing the availability of both the user interface and the network.
Since the new tool records all the necessary information in an internal folder, it neither needs to be installed, nor does it modify any registry entries on the computer. Alternatively, HiView can also be run from portable storage media such as USB sticks or SD cards.
A selection screen shows you all the switches that have recently been accessed, sorted by the number of accesses. You can click on any desired switch to open its graphical user interface. For increased security, it is simple and convenient to view the security certificates of both the products and the Java library. HiView will automatically use the most secure communication method, without additional input from the end user.
With HiView, Belden is launching an interface that for the first time can be used to directly access the GUIs of the switches in its Hirschmann™ range. “We have invested a lot of time in developing a unique automation tool,” says Product Manager Mark Cooksley. “Many users prefer not to have a web browser installed on their computers for security reasons, but they still want to take advantage of the products’ intuitive and user-friendly graphical user interface.”
