Moxa Introduces MXconfig, a High Productivity Tool for Industrial Network Mass Configuration and Deployment

VPort 26A-1MP IP camera, the world’s first dome-type extreme weather HD IP cameraTaipei, Taiwan, May 24, 2013—Moxa is pleased to announce the release of MXconfig, a new software utility for configuring and deploying industrial network devices. MXconfig can be used with a wide range of Moxa industrial Ethernet switches, and supports an impressive assortment of features well suited for industrial applications, including fast group configuration and deployment, link sequence detection, configuration overview and documentation, and user privilege settings. By making it extremely easy for users to configure large numbers of devices, MXconfig goes a long way to reducing setup and maintenance costs.

Fast Group Configuration and Deployment for Simple Setup and Maintenance

“MXconfig’s most attractive feature is its ability to simultaneously configure large numbers of devices,” said Yiwei Chen, product manager of Moxa Inc. “By being able to deploy the same configuration settings, including IP addresses, redundancy protocols, and VLAN settings, across multiple Moxa switches, MXconfig not only significantly saves setup time, but also eliminates the inevitable configuration errors that arise when configuration is done manually. Configuration duplication is also available for users to easily copy the configuration from one device to a large number of other devices. The combination of easy configuration modification and regularly firmware uploads is sure to greatly enhance maintenance efficiency.”

Link Sequence Detection for Complete Configuration
To ensure network availability while configuring VLAN or redundancy settings, MXconfig supports link sequence detection, which allows users to prioritize devices according to physical distance, ensuring that each device will be configured completely and in the proper order.

Configuration Overview and Documentation for Easy Management
In addition to displaying information about individual devices, MXconfig also provides a mass configuration overview that allows users to see functional information for a large number of devices—all at a glance—and Mxconfig can also generate and export reports for easy management. Configuration files can be batch exported or one-to-all imported for future backup or quick re-installation.

User Privilege Settings Enhance Security and Management Flexibility
MXconfig provides three levels of privilege security—Admin, Supervisor, and Operator—giving users the ability to set and manage critical functions that can have a big impact on network performance, such as general network settings, VLAN settings, redundancy protocols, and factory defaults, with the added versatility significantly enhancing management flexibility and security.
