Network and wireless infrastructure brand Pakedge has launched a cloud and smartphone-based app which it says will save installers time and money when it comes to network configuration, management and maintenance. BakPak Cloud provides fully-functioning, remote access to installations, via iOS or Android devices or through a web browser, when used in conjunction with the brand's rack-mount NP36 Network Patroller unit. It can be used to perform diagnostics, manage network appliances, store and back up customer data and perform remote system reboots across multiple projects, eliminating time-consuming site visits.

"System-wide, remote access is essential for installers seeking to improve their service offering and business profitability," says President and CEO Victor Pak. "Our improved BakPak app gives Pakedge integrators the freedom to set up, monitor and maintain their customers' systems, as well as store and back up data, from wherever they are in the world."

The system works in combination with Pakedge's NP36 cloud appliance, which allows installers to automatically discover then configure and manage Pakedge products and other manufacturers' devices on the network. An entire network-based system can be monitored in real-time from a single dashboard, without the need for port forwarding or DynDYS. The app even enables installers to remotely power cycle the Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports on Pakedge switches and power distribution units. Installers can also create pre-defined SMS and email notifications in the event of a fault to speed up trouble-shooting and repair.

BakPak is available free on both the Google Play store for Android devices, and the App Store for Apple devices. Pakedge will be demonstrating the BakPak app with NP36 at ISE 2014. For more visit the company at
