Management Module

ION Management Modules

  • To take full advantage of the features and functions available with the ION Chassis, an ION Management Module is required.
  • The ION Management Module connects to the chassis backplane and communicates with the individual cards in the ION Chassis.
  • To maintain data security, only management traffic, no end-user data traffic, is sent across the ION Chassis backplane.
  • Each slide-in module for the ION Chassis has specific features and functions that are controlled via the ION Management Module.
  • A network administrator can configure, monitor and troubleshoot ION slide-in modules remotely via the ION Management Module.
  • This remote management helps reduce Operating Expenses (OpEx) by reducing technician dispatches.
  • Remote management allows for faster mean-time-to-repair (MTTR) by proactively sending traps and alerts on potential issues.
  • With less downtime you are able to focus on the revenue generating aspects of your business.
