What's New in APD 4.2
APD's Port Finder view allows users to locate all the endpoints that can be used to establish a datapath between the selected devices within the network. Hence assisting the users in making informed connectivity decisions.
The Node Finder functionality is more of a guiding tool that makes it easier for the user to find any node lost into the web of a complicated topology. It highlights the node and the group the node was part of and tracks the path to reach to that node.
Filter & Reports
The Filters & Reports view allows users to generate customized inventory reports to view specific information about the selected ports of a network device. APD also allows the user to apply filters to these reports so as to reflect the state of only the target ports.
APD helps analyze the network robustness with its efficient and quick end-to-end performance testing mechanism. It leverages on the power of BER testing to validate that the key network devices respond to data transmission requests as expected and to quickly identify a bottleneck if any.
Existing APD Features
State of the art Device View that provides a graphical image of any device in the network and displays all port information in a Port Details pane. It changes color to reflect LED state and allows users to toggle between the front and rear panels of the device.
APD's Path Finder tool allows users to view the datapath between two endpoints in a network. It can be used to select a specific port on a device and view all possible paths from that point to the endpoint. One click to identify datapath from any port!
A comprehensive alarms and audit table which provides a list of active and historical alarms and a record of all actions performed in APD. APD provisions the audit log and alarm log tables to be refined by using search to filter specific info.
A Network Provision view allows users to view, configure and provision a data connection between two devices in their network. This easy to use approach showcases network provisioning like never before, simple, intuitive and efficient.
The APD's Northbound API is a secure API used by various clients making external requests. It provides user authentication and reflects the APD Server functionality without exposing internal functionality.
The Port Status feature allows users to assign logical statuses to the ports of any device using APDs intuitive web UI. Users can define the status of a port to reflect whether it is being used by customer, for maintenance or for reserving a port for use in the future. This status is then communicated via the port’s LED.
Making accessibility easier than ever this release of the APD will also launch a companion mobile app. Initial functionality of the mobile app would allow users to easily manage ICID enabled cables.
