LYNX Information

LYNX is a complete software solution for the management of devices in large networks.

LYNX is the result of the continued development of a general-purpose SCADA system able to address devices in many operational domains

Modular and evolving architecture

Thanks to its modular client/server architecture and its evolutionary Open-Source SQL database, a LYNX system can be easily upgraded to account for network evolution and manage new generations of equipments.

As an open and modular system, including OPC connectivity, Sync Manager can monitor and remote-control 3rd party network elements with adequate drivers, providing a seamless and integrated fault management.

LYNX can be configured in hot-standby mode with redundant servers and redundant LAN.

Main view

LYNXmain view displays comprehensive information about the network health.

Alarms counters with severity provide instant access to network elements in detailed views.

A hierarchical and interactive graphical map of the network highlights pending problems. Details of the network appear through easy navigation steps. Any network element can be reached in a few clicks.

Shortcuts to key views and alarm synthesis functionalities based on real-time information help navigation in large networks.

Equipments views

LYNXprovides detailed graphical  “front-panel like” views of managed synchronization equipments with dynamic information.

Such views are automatically built and updated with actual equipments configuration, provisioning and real-time states.

Colours and frames highlight faults and help operators focus on problems by severity levels.

An equipment view is fully interactive. Graphical elements are mouse sensitive, provide contextual information and allow access to detailed information and remote-control operations with respect to the operator’s profile.

Fault Management

LYNX Fault Manager handles events, messages and status information from all network elements.

Events and alarms are displayed using a set of predefined colours and formats for rapid intelligibility.

Hints and operational information help operators fixing problems.

Up to 1.000.000 events are logged for long-term analysis and correlation.

Alarms prioritisation and extensive “on-the-fly” filtering functionalities allows for instant and effective problem solving.

Configuration Management

LYNX Configuration Manager allows administrators to prepare and modify the network database: network elements configuration, topological links, geographic information (GIS).

Hierarchical layouts and filtering helpers facilitate data navigation and retrieval.

Configuration possibilities are restricted to the operator’s profile.

Security Management

LYNX allows system administrators to define user profiles with extended flexibility. Standard configurations include common profiles ranging from View Only to Administrator authority levels. Custom profiles can be prepared if needed.

Inventory Management

LYNX has automatic and dynamic inventory data management with advanced filtering and reporting facilities.

Support for remote software upgrades is in the package.
