H3C Intelligent Management Center

iMC (intelligent Management Center) is a comprehensive, modular platform with the flexibility and scalability to meet the network needs of small-to-medium-sized businesses as well as global enterprises. It consolidates a host of traditionally separate management tools, including those for managing the network infrastructure, its services and its users.

Based on years of accumulation and in-depth understanding of the network, iMC platform provides customer with practical and easy to use network management functions. On the basis of centralized management of network resources, the topology, fault, performance, configuration, and security of H3C are realized. For the network with large number of equipment, wide distribution and relatively centralized, the iMC platform provides hierarchical management, which is conducive to the clear division of power management and load balance for the whole network.

The management platform’s integrated toolset covers the entire network, from the data center to the edge, even if it is geographically dispersed. And it supports the management of all H3C network equipment as well as over 6,000 third-party devices from multi vendors.

iMC provides visibility across entire networks, enabling complete management of resources, services, and users. The management platform unifies management of wired, wireless, physical, and virtual resources—and their users—leading to increased performance, enhanced security, and reduced infrastructure complexity and costs.

Features

Single platform management

The single platform management feature of iMC enables you to get the information you need at a glance, including a display of both physical and virtual assets as well as wired and wireless elements. Convenient color-coded displays, topology overlays, and focused zooming make it easy for you to view the entire network or to concentrate on an area of interest.

Unified resource management of network and servers

* More management equipment types: besides the traditional routers and switches, iMC can manage the wireless, security, voice, storage, monitoring, server, printer, UPS and other equipment in the network to realize the centralized management of the network resources.

* Supporting the batch configuration and verification of equipment access parameters, providing the function of searching, modifying, deleting and importing / exporting of network equipment resources, and also providing user batch management functions, including batch modification of user additional information, batch cancellation of users, and batch user import functions to save operator’s time.

* Flexible and fast automatic discovery algorithm: Based on H3C patent algorithm, iMC platform not only provides rapid automatic discovery, but also provides five advanced automatic discovery methods, including routing, ARP, IPsec VPN, network segment, PPP, and so on, which can quickly and accurately find network resources. Support panel management, which displays the composition and running state of the device via WYSIWYG.

Unified control of virtual and physical worlds

iMC unifies physical and virtual network management and helps IT overcome the challenges of administering the new virtual server edge. It maps the topology of the entire network, making it clear which devices are virtual and which are physical. Management focus and policies remain linked to virtual assets, even if those assets are on moving.

Unified management of wired and wireless networks

iMC provides a unified view of wired, wireless networks and stations with enhanced network performance monitoring and management. From access points (AP) to edge routers, administrators can manage these devices in a consistent manner using policies. iMC delivers role-based access and centralized policy enforcement for users and their devices. Identity-based access helps ensure that the appropriate security measures and policies are applied consistently to users, whether each user connects through a wired or wireless LAN.

Flexible centralized reporting

iMC receives and logs SNMP traps and syslog reports, and it can generate online and historical network performance information in highly adaptable report formats. The reports enable powerful fault finding and event generation. In addition, flexible historical reports provide the information you need for network trend analysis and capacity planning. You can also easily create inventory reports that show network device details, such as model, firmware, available memory, IP address, and serial number. The reports can be run with a mouse click or can be scheduled to run at regular intervals. And you can view reports in a number of formats, including pdf,.csv,.rtf and .xls, and send them automatically via email.

Hierarchical management

The standard version of iMC offers distributed management capabilities that allow multiple servers with different installed modules to retain the appearance of a single UI. The professional version provides the greatest span of control, with a hierarchical deployment mode that can extend visibility across multiple networks, multiple countries, and even multiple continents. For greater flexibility and convenience, you can combine the distributed and hierarchical modes of deployment. iMC provides hierarchical rights management which enables the hierarchical authorization on device or user or operation.

Specification

End-user Intelligent Access (EIA)

The EIA component includes User Access Manager (UAM) and TACACS+ Authentication Manager (TAM). UAM provides policy-based Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) services. UAM software extends management to wired, wireless and remote network users and enables the integration of network device, user, guest and terminal management on a single unified platform. TAM provides basic AAA functions for network devices or IT users for network device management security. TAM can assign users with 2 different privileges, monitor login and command execution operations, and simplify user management.

Wireless Service Manager (WSM)

The WSM module provides unified management of wired and wireless networks. With this module, you can add wireless network management functions to your existing wired network management system, instead of establishing a new IT management platform, safeguarding your legacy network investment from obsolescence and reducing maintenance costs. WSM software offers wireless LAN (WLAN) device configuration, topology, performance monitoring, RF heat mapping, and WLAN service reports.

Network Traffic Analyzer (NTA)

The NTA module provides easy-to-understand network traffic monitoring reports to enable a better understanding of your network bandwidth utilization. This graphical network monitoring tool uses industry-supported traffic-flow standards to provide real-time information about the key users and applications consuming network bandwidth.

Intelligent Analysis Report (iAR)

iAR is composed of the iMC report platform and the report designer. The iMC iAR system helps an IT manager clearly understand the condition of services, resources, and users in the current IT environment in detail and provides sufficient basis safeguard and decision support for the IT manager through intelligent analysis, report data mining, and personalized presentation.

Application Performance Manager (APM)

The APM module provides key performance indicators that are based on the performance of various applications. When used with SHM, this module provides you with a holistic view of the performance of your servers and applications. Applications such as Microsoft Exchange and Oracle databases are supported.

Branch Intelligent Management System (BIMS)

The BIMS module provides zero-touch deployment for remote branch devices. It also offers resource, configuration, service, alarm, group, and privilege management. And it allows the remote management of customer premise equipment in the WAN.

Service Health Manager (SHM)

The SHM module enables you to graphically monitor the health of services based on quality indicators. Key performance indicators can be applied to various aspects of service delivery controlled by the infrastructure—including bandwidth, configuration, link performance, and traffic patterns. Indicators are aggregated to key quality indicators to provide information on the overall service health and compliance to SLAs. This information allows network administrators to adjust network parameters to meet service delivery requirements.

User Behavior Auditor (UBA)

The addition of the UBA module helps you deal with potential security threats from internal users. Leveraging and mining data from other iMC service modules, the UBA module provides an essential view for observing user activity, allowing you to discover and preempt potential network security risks.

Quality of Service Manager (QoSM)

The QoSM module provides real-time network detection of QoS configurations, enabling unified management of QoS policies. The module allows administrators to organize traffic into different classes, based on configurable criteria, to provide differentiated services as well as insight into committed access rates, generic traffic shaping, priority marking, and queue scheduling.
