The TP-LINK Management System tpNMS is a comprehensive standards-based management tool designed to centrally manage network switches. It can manage all of the TP-LINK Smart, L2, L2+ and L3 managed switches, and discover third-party network devices that support the SNMP protocol. Flexible and versatile, tpNMS uses cutting-edge web technology to make it more convenient to monitor and administer your network switches.
Simplify Network Management
tpNMS supports various predefined configuration templates which help users easily manage multiple devices. It works with any managed switch that uses industry-standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). It automatically discovers and maps up to 200 devices on your network without any additional cost: tpNMS is free of charge up to 200 devices.
Network statistics can be graphed in real time, or stored as historical data for trend analysis. Proactive thresholds and alerts (including e-mail notification) detect bottlenecks and other network problems and alert you before users start to call. The user-friendly online graphic interface enables you to monitor everything from network elements to users and groups of devices – from anywhere in the network.
Centralized firmware upgrades
Users can implement batch firmware upgrade through tpNMS, the method is adding the switches with the same software version to the same device group. This feature can greatly reduce the workload of network managers, especially in a large network.
Rich graphic monitoring charts including Device Status, Top 10 Devices, Top 10 Interfaces, Dashboard and Network Topology map make the complex monitoring data more readable so users can easily monitor the entire network through these different graphical charts.
