A common request from customers, particularly in the medical space, is “where are my devices?” It's not that PCs, tablets, or medical IoT devices are missing per se, but a physical check of devices often reveals that they appear to have grown legs and walked off down the hall.
That’s all well and good, until that piece of gear needs servicing, or replacing, or is behaving in an abnormal fashion. If a service technician or member of the IT staff needs to lay hands on that gear, she can’t spend half the day wandering about the hospital campus looking for it, she needs to get at it now because if the device has been compromised, and its about to get hooked up to a patient...no one wants to be responsible for what might happen next.
The short use-case video we’ve put together illustrates how one can identify connected devices by hostname or other criteria, and drill down to help identify the network or segment on which it is connected, narrowing down the location of the device. You can also look at the history of all the IP addresses assigned to that device, giving you some insight into where its been, which is data that could be used to help better understand where equipment really should be, and what the optimum number of devices is in your particular situation.
