Falcon Electric Inc. in Irwindale, Calif., is introducing an internal USHA SNMP/HTTP agent board that supports TCP/IP-based remote uninterruptible power supply (UPS) monitoring and management agent. For security, the device supports HTTP and a security-improved simple network management protocol (SNMP) v3 together with Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). The internal USHA SNMP/HTTP agent helps with remote UPS monitoring and management over any Ethernet LAN, enterprise network, or the Internet. The agent board installs into the communications option slot of any Falcon SG, SSG, or FN Series UPS and connects to any Ethernet LAN, and automatically assigns an IP address if a DHCP server is present. Users can gain access to their UPS devices using most common Web browsers or through network management software like HP OpenView or IBM NetView, using the supplied RFC1628-compliant MIB. Shutdown client software is included to enable remote shutdown of several servers or workstations over Ethernet networks. For more information, visit Falcon Electric online at www.falconups.com.
