Tuesday, January 28, 2014

PEABODY, Mass.—AES Corporation plans to release a network connectivity tool (NCT) and a configuration and diagnostic tool (CDT) that will help installers test network connectivity and quickly set up AES-IntelliNet units, according to a news release.

The NCT is a one-button machine that delivers its analysis in less than 30 seconds, according to the statement. The CDT accelerates pre-configuration steps, allowing technicians to update and modify parameters quickly and configuring the IntelliNet units three to five times faster, the statement says.

“We developed the NCT and CDT in response to customer requests to speed the installation and servicing of our solution,” said Michael Bugda, AES product management director, in a prepared statement. 

The NCT will be available beginning February 2, and the CDT in April 2014.
