Get Greater Administrative Control with BC|Commander Network Management
BC|Commander establishes secure, encrypted links to each node in the Kinetic Mesh® network, which allows operators to gain a complete view of their BreadCrumb-based network topology. Available for workstations running either Microsoft Windows® or Linux®, this software enables point-and-click configuration for ease of management and rapid scalability.
BC|Commander graphically depicts network topology at any given time, whether nodes are fixed, wireless, or in motion. Real-time mapping of BreadCrumbs allows administrators to see exactly where and how their network is connecting even as devices move throughout the environment. It also provides real-time RF status information for mesh and client links, and generates network analysis and configuration reports.
Configure features for multiple BreadCrumbs at once—including radio settings, mesh encryption and authentication, VLANs, InstaMesh settings and more—and spin out new nodes almost instantaneously. BreadCrumbs automatically look for peers and will begin communicating immediately, making set up minimal. Client link security can also be configured up to WPA/WPA2-Enterprise (802.11i Enterprise). BC|Commander makes it easy to monitor and optimize any BreadCrumb-based network as the network evolves.
Fully integrated in the latest version of BC|Commander, BC|MeshMappper is Rajant’s latest network performance active survey utility that illustrates how the Kinetic Mesh connection quality varies by geographic location within a mesh network. This diagnostic tool generates connectivity heat maps to help the end user to analyze, diagnose, and optimize the performances of the Kinetic Mesh network. When implemented immediately and after topography changes, BC|MeshMapper will give the network administrator excellent visibility into how well the current infrastructure placements cover the active area with the metrics that are most important to analyzing the health of InstaMesh links.
