3Com managed switches are widely used by many businesses around the world and form an integral part of many networks. Because configurations can make or break a network, it is vital to manage them. Network Configuration Manager provides this advantage.
Using Network Configuration Manager, you can back up 3Com switch config, manage 3Com switch config, and automate switch config. You can also audit compliance and enable change management and notifications using the 3Com switch management tool. These features save a lot of time and reduce the manual workload of network admins and operators.
Whenever a network outage occurs, admins have to manually troubleshoot the problem, which takes hours and sometimes days, eventually leading to downtime and business losses. But with Network Configuration Manager's advanced backup capability, you can have multiple backups of 3Com managed switches' configurations and upload the most stable version to the devices. Once the devices are up and running, IT admins will have plenty of time to troubleshoot issues and get to the root of them.
Using Network Configuration Manager's change management features, IT admins will not have to track configuration changes manually. Here's how change management works in Network Configuration Manager:
Maximum security is always the top priority. Once a 3Com switch is configured in Network Configuration Manager, you can check if the device is compliant with internal and industry standards by creating and applying policies. By default, Network Configuration Manager provides policies for Cisco IOS, PCI DSS, SOX, HIPAA, and more. It also allows users to create custom policies based on their own requirements. Once policies are applied to 3Com switches, Network Configuration Manager checks for violations and notifies you if the devices are non-compliant.
Manual work is always hard and can lead to human error. In order to save time and avoid errors, automation is essential. Network Configuration Manager provides automation through Configlets, which are command templates. For example, you can use Configlets to enable SNMP for all 3Com switches at once, eventually saving time and reducing a lot of manual work.
The firmware on network devices, especially switches, is threatened constantly by malicious attacks. To protect your network, Network Configuration Manager imports vulnerability data from NIST and scans the entire network for vulnerabilities. If vulnerable devices are found, Network Configuration Manager immediately lists them along with their CVE IDs that also carry suitable fixes for the vulnerabilities. On top of that, Network Configuration Manager provides reports with in-depth information on all vulnerable devices.
Audits and reports are essential for keeping track of everything, especially in the networking field. Network Configuration Manager generates various configuration reports to give you in-depth information about your 3Com switch configuration management. Here are some of the report categories:
|Vendor||Model or series|
|3Com||4200G Series Switch|
|3Com||4500 Series Switch|
|3Com||5500 Series Switch|
