Moxa OnCell Central Manager--Access Your Private IP Network Devices Over the Web

Feb 15, 2017

  • Product News

Brea, California, Feb. 15, 2017—Moxa is pleased to launch OnCell Central Manager, a new software tool designed to provide efficient communication for remote site devices. With OnCell Central Manager, engineers can actively monitor and manage remote site devices from a host site, and get around the problem of managing remote site devices configured with a private IP. Features include device configuration, maintenance and monitoring, Telnet enabling, secure account settings, and more. The combination of OnCell Central Manager and Moxa's OnCell series products offers an ideal solution for your industrial cellular applications. This solution can provide both serial and Ethernet devices with access to the Internet over a cellular network.

Due to the limited number of public IP addresses available, most cellular service providers only offer private IP addresses for connecting mobile devices to the Internet. The problem this presents is that by their very nature private IP addresses are hidden from the Internet as a whole. This means that a cellular device on a private network cannot be managed or accessed directly from a host PC outside that network. This is where OnCell Central Manager comes in. OnCell Central Manger is installed on a machine configured with a public IP address, and then acts as a go-between between your cellular devices and general Internet devices. Since OnCell Central Manager can see both your cellular devices and Internet devices, you will be able to monitor and manage your cellular devices over the Internet.

An alternative way of dealing with this private IP problem is to use VPN technology. VPN solutions, however, involve more overhead since they need to encrypt data for security purposes. This can put a strain on cellular networks, since only limited bandwidth is available. Moxa's OnCell Central Manager offers an optimal solution that saves valuable network bandwidth. By providing a central point of access to remote devices, OnCell Central Manager gives you the most comprehensive set of remote monitoring functions by allowing you to configure, manage, and control your devices over the Internet.
