Looking for an easy way to access network devices with private IP addresses over the Internet? Moxa’s OnCell Central Manager supports using private IP addresses to lower your operational costs and reduce the time needed to set up a connection to your devices. Moxa’s OnCell Central Manager offers an industrial-grade centralized solution that allows you to configure, manage, and monitor remote devices on a private network, over the web.
Due to the limited availability of public IP addresses, most cellular service providers only offer private IP addresses for mobile devices to connect to the Internet. However, the nature of private IP addresses makes it extremely difficult to access your cellular devices from a public network. This is where OnCell Central Manager comes in. OnCell Central Manager stands between you and your cellular devices and allows you to access your devices from anywhere on the Internet.
By providing a central point of access to remote devices, OnCell Central Manager makes it easy for you to manage multiple devices. Using a standard web browser, you can securely make configuration changes to a device, manage devices, and monitor device status. OnCell Central Manager helps you reduce maintenance costs. Since you can diagnose and solve problems from a central site, you won’t need to make as many trips to remote locations. OnCell Central Manager can be hosted at a customer’s central data center or through a Moxa partner’s server, and can be accessed securely from anywhere across a wired or wireless IP network, including the Internet.
