Belden Inc. this week announced a new release of its Hirschmann Industrial HiVision network management software. Version 5.0 of Industrial HiVision addresses specific challenges of configuring and supervising an industrial Ethernet network.

Like their office counterparts, industrial networks are becoming more heterogeneous, Belden said in a release, and “rarely does a network consist of equipment from a single manufacturer.”

Features of the upgrade include HiFusion, a tool provided free with the new version that facilitates the integration of any SNMP-capable device into Industrial HiVision.

It also includes a wizard to guide users through the creation of the integration files. “In the office world, network management is the domain of the IT department; experts with many years of IT experience. In the industrial world, not everyone is an IT specialist,” said product manager Mark Cooksley. “Network management in an industrial environment has its own set of challenges.”

The software can be downloaded at www.hivision.de/English and tested free of charge for 30 days.
