Until now, documenting every part of the path of a cross connect was nearly impossible,
with many organizations relying on spreadsheets. In order to scale, NCS built the cross connect inventory management system, XCIM.
SaaS Cross Connect Inventory Management for Data Center Operators
DOCUMENT EVERY HOP
Build connections between panels and equipment to document the entire path of a cross connect through the data center, or even between data centers.
CONNECT YOUR CUSTOMERS
Cross connects can represent a connection between two customers or between a customer and a carrier.
Predefine existing infrastructure connections (like room-to-room) and use those connections, and new ones, to build the path of a cross connect.
Use the floorplan editor to position cages and racks in a flexible room layout. All browser based, not special plugins required.
A NEW ANGLE
View a 3D version of a floorplan directly in your browser, even on tablets.
SITES AND CAMPUSES
The application allows you to organize your data center space by campus, site/building, and location/room.
Create an inventory of cages, and define their size, shape, location, and customer ownership.
Use the rack library to predefine types of racks. After creating a rack, you can position network equipment and patch panels.
In 3D views, the racks are accurately represented based on the items they contain.
Create an inventory of every patch panel and port in the data center, along with rules for guiding connections.
PORT LEVEL DETAIL
Panels can be any type and role, with any port labeling scheme. All the parameters are controlled by the user.
Data center operators often reserve ports for customers in a meet-me-room, and now those reservations can be tracked.
