Monitoring and managing the health of your network is a critical consideration when designing, purchasing, and deploying equipment for your communications system. Equally important is ensuring that you maximise your network’s return on investment by increasing system throughput and uptime, improving the utilisation of networked devices, and finally, supporting the deployment of maintenance resources when problems surface. This is where our network management software can help.

Purpose built for MDS devices:

With over 1.5 million installed around the world and over 30 years of experience, GE is aware of the challenges our customers face when managing their communication networks. GE’s MDS PulseNET software provides insight and detailed system performance information, allowing you to intelligently and proactively manage your radio communications network.

Through deep integration with GE’s MDS wireless product portfolio, MDS PulseNET collects, stores, and trends performance and status metrics of MDS wireless devices. The raw metrics collected from network devices must be correctly manipulated into meaningful data before the information can be presented to the end-user.

Easy Installation and rapid deployment:

MDS PulseNET network management software requires minimal effort to install and operate, provides pre-built specific device warning thresholds to eliminate guesswork, and provides visibility into communications that have historically been unmanaged.

MDS PulseNET software provides multiple, concurrent, role-based logins through a web interface so that each user is able to see exactly what they need to fulfil their individual responsibilities. MDS PulseNET also provides the operator with immediate access to performance trending graphs through the same simple navigation. It normalises the views for disparate technologies into simple and easy-to-use dashboards. The main dashboard provides a high-level status of each set of functional components being monitored.

Once your system is properly configured, it can automatically discover your network devices, assign licenses to the devices and begin monitoring the network.
