tool designed to centrally manage critical network characteristics such as availability, reliability,
web technology to provide a comprehensive software toolbox that can be accessed without
the need to install software onto the client.
Flexible Architecture
D-View 7 is organized into a server-probe architecture, which simplifies data collection across
complex networks. Monitoring and configuring multiple devices at remote locations, across
the Internet, or behind a NAT is no longer an issue with the D-View 7. Remotely deployed
probes will automatically tunnel home, allowing for the management of devices that cannot
be directly accessed using standard SNMP. When a device is selected for management,

With a highly customizable scheduling system, D-View 7 can allow users to assign tasks to be
issued in off peak hours or any other planned maintenance time frame. Users can have the
peace of mind knowing that routine maintenance task and configurations will be automatically
managed and monitored by D-View 7’s event notification system. D-View 7 also supports
periodic task which can be run daily, weekly, monthly, etc.

Extendable, Affordable Business Wireless Solution
Designed from the ground up as a standalone software controller, D-Link D-View 7 is
flexible, robust, and feature rich. It comes ready to run with many enhanced enterprise
wireless access point (AP) features to provide a solid wireless network system for customers

different management authorities between head and regional offices, and allows service

Robust Security and Management Tools
as well as multi-tenancy management. This allows network administrators to provide
providers to offer a managed wireless network for their customers. Sites can be logically
separated with their own configuration, access security, network map, and statistics. Autogenerates network topology maps and periodically polls network devices. The map of the
topology view can be modified(Add, Edit, Delete). Select this option image formats
supported are JPG, JPEG, GIF and PNG. For example, a network operations manager could
pre-configure APs before dispatching them to regional offices. He can then manage all of
the APs on an enterprise intranet, while allowing local administrators to manage APs that are
only present on their local network. The service provider can simply send a pre-configured
AP to a customer and then remotely manage the customer’s wireless network access and
Manage Third-party Devices
Network administrators can customize the SOID and related information of virtually any
3rd party device which lets D-View 7 identify many third party devices and manage
them. D-View 7 can then check the health status of those devices, issue CLI commands,
and do the standard management and monitoring. Detected foreign wireless access

graphical dashboard, network administrators can get near real-time feedback on the status
of their network.

For wireless access, D-Link SMB APs can support 8 SSIDs per radio, which
means administrators can use one SSID to create a guest network for
visitors. D-View 7 expands on that built-in feature and allows for multiple
user authentications. Access controls can be configured per SSID as well,
allowing network administrators to configure separate internal networks for
different subnets. This means that more advanced value added services such
as a captive portal or Wi-Fi hotspots can be used to help manage wireless
network traffic.
Captive portal allows
for web-based Wi-Fi
access authentication
Deploying D-View 7 is also much simpler compared to traditional
hardware controller solutions as it can be installed on any server running a
recent version of Microsoft Windows. D-View 7 software operates
transparently on the network meaning the access point can be deployed
anywhere in a customer’s Layer 2/3 environment. Management traffic to
and from the target access points will go through an authorized tunnel to
D-View 7 while normal network traffic will go through existing networking
infrastructure unimpeded. The D-View 7 management interface is also
remotely accessible via its built-in web server. Administrators can use a
web browser to connect to computers with D-View 7 installed to manage
their WLAN network and wireless access points from anywhere.

Flexible Expansion and Deployment Options
Unlike traditional hardware controller solutions for managing wireless
access points, D-View 7 has a much lower initial investment cost as it
comes bundled with many D-Link access points and there are no per
access point license charges. With the simple to use installation tool, it is
easy to expand the wireless network in the future. Adding devices to DView 7 is done automatically when new access points are discovered on
the network, allowing new devices to be quickly managed and deployed.
D-View 7 also automatically manages RF output for multiple access points,
optimizing the number of available wireless channels and coverage. This
results in reduced channel interference and provides faster total
bandwidth throughput and connection reliability. By optimizing the
coverage area and connection quality, D-View 7 enables network
administrators to provide better wireless service at a lower deployment
cost, resulting in a higher return on investment.

Enhanced Trap and Syslog Analysis
D-View 7 also functions as a trap and syslog server which can collect all of the
trap or syslog data from multiple devices across a network. This gives network
administrators a centralized place to collect important data, which can
then be searched easily from within one year retrospective recording DView 7. The advanced search system lets network administrators set
keyword combinations, and generate alarms based on events that are
reported in the trap or syslog feature. It can also let network administrators
set key works, keyword combinations, and generate alarms based on
reported trap or syslog.
