The iConverter Network Management Module (NMM) is the heart of the iConverter management system. It features a 32-bit, high performance RISC microprocessor executing a real-time operating system. It supports the SNMP and Telnet protocols and is capable of controlling and managing up to 16 managed chassis.
The NMM features a serial port for initial configuration, a front-plane RJ45 Ethernet port, a backplane Ethernet port, and a pair of multi-chassis management ports.In-Band management is accomplished via the backplane Ethernet port connecting to an adjacent iConverter module with backplane support, thus offering direct access to the NMM via the operational network. Out-of-Band management is accomplished via the front-plane Ethernet port, facilitating a secure management network. The NMM is password protected to prevent unauthorized access.
