TE Connectivity Introduces Infrastructure Configuration Manager (ICM) Software

GREENSBORO, N.C. --(Business Wire)--

TE Connectivity (News - Alert) (TE) is pleased to announce Infrastructure Configuration Manager (ICM) software, specifically designed for customers of TE managed connectivity solutions. ICM powers TE's AMPTRAC ninth wire system and advanced Quareo connection point identification technology, providing customers with a single platform for both solutions.

ICM creates an automated, accurate, real-time physical layer management system that is designed to explore, discover and map all the connections of the network, allowing data center and network managers to simplify the process of all moves, adds and changes (MACs), improve security and reduce operating expense. When used with AMPTRAC and Quareo, this state-of-the-art software system allows immediate response to changes in connectivity and automatically records the connections of the physical layer cabling system and its devices with accurate documentation. TE managed connectivity solutions, enabled by ICM, help customers eliminate time consuming manual work order processes, easily identify and locate specific ports, auto-discover IP assets, and trace data center circuits from the switch through the cross-connect to the server. The system also helps maximize network investment by identifying under-utilized assets and improving security through real-time monitoring and programmable alerts.

"ICM works withboth our AMPTRAC ninth wire solution and our innovative Quareo solution, allowing our customers to choose the appropriate platform to meet their specific application and business needs," explains Kam Patel, product management director for emerging technologies at TE Enterprise Networks. "ICM is ideal for customers needing to manage complex networks, allowing simultaneous access to a wide range of departments, including help desk, planning, network administration, supervision and technicians."

Both ISO 20000 and BS 15000 compliant to support ITIL best practices and the TIA (News - Alert)-606B, automated infrastructure management draft standard, ICM is fully configurable with an easy-to-use, intuitive menu structure and third-party software support via Application Programming Interface (API) capabilities. ICM provides valuable benefits to client networks of any size and application, including financial institutions, insurance providers, data centers, high security government facilities, military defense facilities, airports, medical centers, universities and corporate headquarters. ICM will debut with on-site demonstrations at Cisco Live in London, January 30 - February 2, and at The BICSI (News - Alert) Winter Conference in Orlando, Florida, February 12 - 16.
