The Premise Networks division of Molex has introduced Advanced Physical Layer Lifecycle Management (APLLM).

APLLM is a suite of solutions designed to allow enterprises to manage physical layer and infrastructure with a high level of visibility and integration.

Using a combination of software, electronics and structured cabling products, APLLM enables users to track and manage their investment from planning through to design, procurement, installation, moves, adds and changes, and the eventual upgrade of the infrastructure.

‘In its simplest form, APLLM is comprised of three core product groupings: Insight, MIIM and traditional data transport,’ said Chip Baines, director of product management.

‘When implemented independently, each element benefits a targeted infrastructure need, whereas when integrated into a single Molex solution, it offers a holistic view of the physical network and provides for true lifecycle management guided by the notion that no project is ever complete,’ he added.

Insight is an online information management system for the planning, deployment and management of infrastructures and their connected assets.

Consisting of three core modules – project control, connectivity management and MAC management – Insight increases visibility, control, automation and collaboration for the management of any infrastructure to specified stakeholder groups.

Some core features include best practice libraries, customised work flows, multi-user permissions and partitioning, and real-time access to information from any global location.

MIIM focuses on enhancing network management at the physical layer, network security, asset management, increased productivity and visibility.

In addition to MAC and work order management, the solution detects network device connect/disconnects regardless of power or broken cables and Smart polling provides constant information on all network devices connected to work area outlets.

MIIM differentiators include true centralised management of the channel beyond the wire closet out to remote work areas regardless of LAN topology, guided patching impervious to human error and collection/reporting/alarming of real-time Layer 1 data registering minimal impact on network resources.
