UVexplorer and Lucidchart Join Forces for Easier Network Mapping


UVnetworks is excited to announce that UVexplorer and Lucidchart have teamed up to create a fast and easy way to automatically discover and map your network infrastructure.

UVexplorer provides an easy and cost-effective solution to:

  • Quickly discover your network devices and the connections between them.
  • Gather detailed inventory data for your devices, including serial numbers, IP/MAC addresses, host names, installed software, etc.
  • Automatically create network maps to show connections between devices.
  • Track your network’s topology and receive notifications when changes or issues occur.
  • Diagnose problems with your network devices using an integrated engineering tool set.

Lucidchart provides a powerful and intuitive diagramming environment that is completely online. No install required! While Lucidchart lets you create network diagrams by hand, with UVexplorer you can now automatically discover and map your network, and export the results into Lucidchart. Stop creating network diagrams by hand, and let UVexplorer do the work! And, since Lucidchart runs in the cloud, you and your co-workers can share and edit network maps simultaneously. This lets you access the power of UVexplorer anywhere.

And, UVexplorer diagrams are more than just a picture! When creating network maps, static diagrams with no details don’t give you the specifics you need to understand your network. That’s where the integration of UVexplorer and Lucidchart makes your life even better. UVexplorer can discover all the critical information about your IT assets, and then automatically create Lucidchart diagrams with detailed data directly attached to each device node. It really is that simple!

There’s even more good news. UVexplorer’s latest release packages all of its discovery and mapping expertise in a simple subscription offering for as low as $45 a month. To learn more about the features of UVexplorer, visit UVexplorer.com.

We hope the integration of UVexplorer and Lucidchart gives you the tools you need to save time and money in creating network diagrams that help you build and manage your network.

Automatically Generate Network Maps in PRTG


Did you know that the use of pictures to display data in a more understandable way is not a new concept? In fact, it was originally used in the 17th century as a way to teach concepts. For example, Charles Minard mapped out Napoleon’s invasion of Russia in one of the first examples of the value of visualization. Turning numbers, figures, statistics, and data into pictures makes it far easier for that data to be understood and comprehended even by the most experienced professional. The same is true for your IT infrastructure.

Managing devices on any network is a challenge. The adoption of new technology allows for connection points to happen from multiple points. Connectivity does not happen in a single building, nor does it include a set number of systems all on hand. The extensiveness of today’s IT infrastructure is not only incredible, but it can be difficult to manage. Proper device inventory is necessary for multiple reasons, stemming from ensuring connectivity to monitoring risks. Yet, having a detailed device inventory is not as simplistic as it may seem.
