IP address management system with VC4’s IMS
Here at VC4, our Inventory & Management System (IMS) can have a whole host of benefits for telecom service providers, with its ability to help administrators automatically maintain and assign data to a network’s IP addresses one of its most popular.
IMS can help companies to manage the task of identifying IP addresses that are in use, as well as those that are no longer assigned to any device.
By using network domains, the IP address management system can assist in preventing IP conflicts within a domain, as each address needs to be completely unique.
How to create and edit IP address ranges with IMS
Using its IP calculator function, IMS can help engineers to create the IP ranges and subnet masks they need to use.
This is best done after both an IP address and accompanying prefix have been entered into the IP management database.
See the example below:
Relating network items to IP addresses
VC4’s IMS can also be used to relate IP addresses back to a variety of network items, including:
- Connections, such as VLANs
- Equipment, including the loopback address
IMS will show telecom service providers what the next available IP address is and which will provide the optimum effect.
