  • 1. Strix Element Management SystemStrix Manager/OneThe Strix Access/One Network architecture combines the industry’s unmatched mesh routingintelligence, designed from the ground up to optimize throughput in a dynamic metro-scale Wi-Fi mesh environment, with carrier-grade centralized element management software and apurpose-built management hardware module. The Strix Access/One Network architectureleverages multiple frequencies to enable metro-scale mesh deployments that are not possibleby other mesh vendors. The result: a fast, low-cost and simple wireless broadband solutionavailable anywhere.Strix Systems makes it incredibly easy to deploy and control hundreds or thousands of meshunits for secure, ubiquitous 802.11 coverage over metropolitan areas. Metro-scale networksrequire specialized management that Strix Manager/One already provides including robustnetwork monitoring and granular manageability.Strix Manager/One is a powerful element manager, allowing network operators to perform amultitude of functions, including over the air configuration and updates of Strix Access/OneNetwork units, whole network performance monitoring and statistical capture – includingsimple point-and-click graph creation, real-time link state and client connectivity monitoringand user-defined functions such as MAC address filtering and rogue client black listing.Strix offers centralized web-based, command-line, and SNMP MIB interfaces to Access/One®Network OWS and IWS, providing all the management tools necessary to monitor, manage andconfigure the network for functional efficiency, reliability and security.Strix Manager/One software resides on the Strix hardware based Network Server module andon all wireless modules within the Access/One Network.

  • 2. The web interface uses a tabbed page design with supporting frames, pull-down menus, pop-updialogs, and mouse over features to provide detailed knowledge about the network and itscurrent active state. The network topology view shows a hierarchical view of the network,remote an local unit information, signal strength, data rate, and other parameters.

  • 3. Manager/One Screen ShotStrix Manager/One key features: • Deployment & Provisioning o Provides mechanisms to deploy any combination of Strix Access/One units from one unit to an entire network in a simple process at both initial installation and in subsequent moves, adds and changes. o Allows units to be provisioned over the air using a simple profile, highly customized profiles, or multiple profiles. o Enables encrypted passwords and Trusted IP access policies for access and security tailored to users. Supports allow/deny lists, MAC address filtering, rogue client deny lists. o Global and incremental software upgrades. Allows the network to be viewed as a single device for upgrade purposes. Designed to meet the unique upgrade needs of metro-scale mesh networks • Monitoring o Offers a unified network view to see and manage the entire network o View, identify and diagnose problems with alarm monitoring tools and root cause diagnostics
  • 4. o Provides tools for alarm reporting and notification o Fully supports remote access to the network and all Strix Manager/One functionality can be accessed remotely • Managing o Watch, in real time, all network activity through a series of network views o Performance measurement tools to track path throughput o Custom and standard reporting o Capabilities to integrate with network management systems: it can operate as a standalone system, integrate with a customer’s existing NOC, or manage other network devices. Supports 802.11 SNMP MIB (Management Information Base), as well as Strix proprietary MIBs. Any MIB I or MIB II compliant SNMP management console (such as CiscoWorks or HP OpenView) can be used to manage the network on-site or remotely.Deployment & ProvisioningStrix Manager/One is designed to deploy and provision any number of nodes at a time. It isparticularly well-designed for initial implementations. Users can: • Install/mount the units in the field • Discover and log into the IP address of the Strix Network Sever module and Manager/One interface. Globally provision network settings for all units. • Discover all units and auto meshing of Access/One units from Manager/One • One step push network setting to all units and admit into Network and trusted inventory system • Immediately determine global health, monitoring, performance and statisticsUsers can also follow the same process for incremental unit additions or changes in thenetwork.Provision units from a single system level configuration profile, highly customized profiles ormultiple profiles per device. The following screen entitled, Manager/One Global Radio ProfileSettings, shows the list of settings that can be customized. Manager/One Global Radio Profile Settings
  • 5. Per BSSID Configuration • Configure multiple BSSID’s and VLAN tags, up to 16 BSSID’s and 250 VLANs supported per radio • Suppress BSSID on or off • Enable security encryption and authentication methods, unique per BSSID • Enable if desired, Client Connect Privacy to isolate users and traffic at the radio and throughout the network. This is a per BSSID feature • Select if desired, Manage ACL to configure allow/strict/deny of ACL lists, MAC address filtering and assign to VLAN or a unique encryption keyGlobal and incremental software upgradesManager/One enables global deployment, staging and upgrading all units in the network in asingle step process. It is designed for the special needs of a metro-scale mesh network thattraditional element management systems designed for wired environments do not handle. For
  • 6. example, path quality can vary so an element management system needs to throttle upgradesto adjust to the available throughput on a path.Strix Manager/One provides powerful health/audit and monitoring of upgrades. In real time,system administrators can monitor the success of upgrades on a device by device basis. Thefollowing screen shot entitled, View Action Status shows an example of a 6 second status takenfrom an actual upgrade. View Action StatusManager/One Health Status and MonitoringOffers a unified network view to see and manage the entire network. The ability to monitor theentire network from a variety of views, including a geographic view of the Strix unitssuperimposed over a map of the installation as shown provides easy identification of problems.

  • 7. Strix Manager/One - Backhaul MonitorView, Identify and Diagnose - Alarm monitoring tools and root cause diagnostics. StrixManager/One or integration with SNMP and Syslog interfaces show total alarms and events bycategory in a single view as well as details on each of those alarms. Real-time visual indicatorsshow units by health state and a correlated color to represent that state.Proactive Notification. Within Strix Manager/One, system administrators can specify alarmsand events that designated staff should be notified of by email or SMS. They can select thealarm type, the alarm threshold and then pre-populate the notification with the target staff’saddresses along with procedures for resolving the alarm type.
  • 8. ManagementStrix Manager/One provides real time reporting of network performance. Each unit is displayedgeographically and the mesh diagram displays real-time backhaul path location and color codedline based on signal strength. Clicking on units displays real-time backhaul path, alternativepaths, RSSI local and remote, throughput, unit distance, round trip, noise, number of hops tothe wired node, and other metrics. From a tabular view, multiple categories of unit metrics arepossible including active backhaul locations, link status and metrics for those links.Reporting. Strix Manager/One provides standard and custom reporting for a variety of eventsand alarms within the network. For example, it can provide reports on a network or clientbasis. A sampling of the reporting it can provide for client devices includes the following: • Transmit and receive traffic through units • Client counts by node or gateway • Client Signal to Noise Ratio levelsThe following screen entitled, Sample Reporting from … an example of the built-in reportingavailable in Strix Manager/One.Capabilities to integrate with network management systems.Strix Manager/One can be a standalone system, integrate with a customer’s existing NOC. Italso integrates with best of breed SNMP management applications and includes as multitude ofMIBs to manage, monitor and configure the network and devices.
