WNMS is a FREE enterprise grade Wireless Network Management System. Single software solution simplifies a large number of management and monitoring tasks for network administrator. Comprehensive network management system supports up to several thousand of nodes. Multiple networks may be maintained and monitored using one server. Rich feature set helps to diagnose network problems effectively, visualize network on map, perform automatically scheduled firmware upgrades, track states of devices, get alerts about failures, collect statistics and many other things. Web-based system environment supports multi-user accounts. Several administrators may manage different networks on the same server, without having access to each other's equipment.

The Wireless Network Management System's architecture allows configuring or performing firmware upgrades on any network infrastructure. Monitored devices can be on LAN behind a NAT or on WAN. Scalable software design is perfectly suited for small and large networks. Rapidly growing networks may be split it into smaller logical groups (smaller networks) and assigned to different administrators. All information about the devices that are monitored (name, MAC, serial number, IP, firmware version) is stored in Wireless Network Management System server. Information storage in one place, quick search capabilities, data export options simplify the inventory management. Each network device can be monitored individually with defined tracking parameters (standard and custom based on SNMP value). Reported alerts are shown on Wireless Network Management System dashboard in a real time. Furthermore, system has the ability to notify contacts (via email) when problems arise and are resolved. Alert history is stored on the server allowing analysis of failures that happened in the past.
