The BestLink SNMP/WEB Adapter is a network adapter for Uninterruptible Power systems that provides both SNMP and HTTP compatibility. This allows you to easily monitor, manage and, if necessary, safely shutdown remote UPS-protected servers, routers, hubs, and other key internetworking devices in a controlled manner. BestLink SNMP/WEB Adapters provide a self-contained link between the Best Power UPS and an Ethernet LAN/WAN, allowing your UPS to be remotely monitored and controlled from the next room, the next building, or the next state... with no additional overhead on any server. These dedicated adapters provide the essential network connection and pathway between UPS and any industry-standard network management platform or popular Web browser. BestLink also controls automatic shutdown of protected computer systems with the use of NetWatch client software (available beginning with Best Power's CheckUPS II CD-ROM v3.2).
BestLink SNMP/WEB Adapters expand your control and visibility throughout the network, and allow you to track power-related problems anywhere on the network. Along with managing the servers, routers, hubs, and other network devices, the UPS can also be monitored and controlled. The same network management software used to manage your other SNMP-compatible devices such as SunNet Manager, Novell Manage Wise, HP-OpenView, NetView 6000, and others, may be used to manage the UPS. And even if your protected device goes down, the UPS can still communicate with you via the BestLink SNMP/WEB Adapter. You may even be able to use the UPS to reboot the device.
