TaCNAMS - Training Center Network and Asset Management System
TaCNAMS is a product offered by FCSI that leverages years of successful deployment of GE Energy's Physical Network Inventory (PNI). PNI is being successfully utilized by many companies in the electrical and telecommunications industries to manage their complex networks. Training centers are comprised of the same complex network of elements found in those industries.
- Debugging - The current method of debugging your training center is a hit or miss endeavor. Identifying the real cause for several non operating components can take hours or days. All of which means unnecessary downtime of crucial training systems. TaCNAMS helps you identify the cause of the problem sooner by doing multiple traces along the power, cabling, and ethernet networks to identify the common points of failure.
- Load Balancing - Are some of your components or training systems not performing up to specifications? It could be caused by overloading the bandwidth or power supply. TaCNAMS gives you the ability to identify where you training center components may be pushing the infrastructure past its design specifications.
- Planning - Are you confident your training center can handle those new simulators on order? You can use TaCNAMS to model the new equipment before it comes in and determine if your infrastructure can support it. Using the load balancing functionality, you can include the new equipment into your network model before it arrives and identify any overloaded components.
- Work Orders - You can use TacNAMS to generate work orders so installers know exactly where to run cables and where to connect. Cost estimates can also be done to better understand the costs (both equipment and labor) of the changes to you training center.
