With the iMPS sensor from MWAi and the PRTG Network Monitor, dealers can monitor everything on their customer’s network
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) May 24, 2013
MWA Intelligence (MWAi), a SAP Gold Partner and leader in enterprise-class Machine to Machine (M2M) and Machine to People (M2P) solutions today announced a new iMPS print tracking sensor for the PRTG Network Monitor from Paessler AG.
The iMPS sensor for PRTG Network Monitor automatically detects network MFP’s and printers capturing model, serial number, meters, toner usage and service alerts. The MWAi Sensor is one of more than 170 types of PRTG Network Monitor sensors, which makes the monitoring of virtually any device easy and thorough, enabling network administrators to take a proactive approach to monitoring network health. PRTG Network Monitor, which currently has more than 150,000 active installs, supports among others SNMP, WMI, Flow monitoring, as well as packet sniffing and monitoring of IPv6 devices. The extensive list of sensor types includes pre-built sensors specifically designed for monitoring of QoS, websites, email systems, applications, databases, virtual environments, and many others. The software is ideal for businesses of all sizes, from small office/home office, to large enterprises, and is used by more than 70% of Fortune 100 companies.

“As Imaging Channel dealers embrace managed services they need powerful network monitoring that will empower them to manage more than just printers,” said Michael T. Stramaglio, President and CEO of MWA Intelligence. “With the iMPS sensor from MWAi and the PRTG Network Monitor, dealers can monitor everything on their customer’s network with a potent interactive network monitoring tool.”
MWAi has worked with Paessler, the innovative network monitoring solutions specialist, to leverage its industry-leading PRTG Network Monitor that already provides the most powerful, affordable and easy-to-use network monitoring solutions on the market.
Based on the PRTG platform, MWAi has developed a feature set called iMPS™ Sensor that covers multiple facets of the meter monitoring and Click Charge challenge, including:
Meter Read-with a sensor that automatically counts color, mono and total pages on all devices and accurately reports this data corresponding to each device serial number once a month to the dealer for invoicing.
Toner Monitoring-with CMYK toner levels reported on a 5-minute or less interval, which is far more accurate than levels displayed on the device panel captured in far longer intervals. This is especially important on large, full-color print jobs on high-speed devices when toner levels could change dramatically in the course of just a few minutes. In fact, during testing, while the device panel still showed 15% toner level, PRTG with MWAi's iMPS™ Sensor sent an alert to the administrator notifying him that toner level was depleted to 5%, reporting low toner long before the device itself noticed it.
Paper Tray Monitoring-with continuous monitoring of paper supply in each paper tray for efficient supply management. PRTG with the iMPS™ Sensor can even be configured to handle specialized relationships between trays-for example, reporting accurately on Tray 1 being empty, while the system picks up Tray 3, skipping Tray 2 if it's been stocked with glossy paper for color print jobs.
“Paessler has been at the forefront of providing the industry's most powerful, affordable and easy-to-use network solutions since the dawn of the modern Internet. Paessler’s lightweight products make it easy and convenient to manage network availability, performance and usage without draining valuable system, personnel and financial resources. Simply put: they just work, so you don't have to worry.” said Markus Brinsa, Executive Senior Vice President, North America, Paessler AG. “We are thrilled that MWA integrates their industry leading iMPS technology into a sensor for PRTG. This technology moves real-time print device monitoring to a new level."
