Networking and Security
Smart diagnostic toolWith u-link's firmware management, current firmware statuses are clearly displayed and a secure method is offered to update them automatically at an individually defined point in time. Thanks to u-link's connection dashboard, the user has a smart diagnostic tool at their disposal. In the event of an error due to a changed IP address, a pulled Ethernet cable, poor reception or a new firewall rule for example, the cause of the error can be quickly determined via the connection evaluation. Evaluations of the connections are an elementary component of a good solution.
In addition to diagnostics, this also enables new business models through per-second-billing of service times to the customer.
