Discover the Enhanced Site-Wide Topology v2.0 on Zyxel Networks NCC

In the 17.20 update to the Nebula Control Center, Zyxel Networks is excited to unveil the highly anticipated Site-Wide Topology v2.0. This new version brings significant enhancements and features that have received positive feedback from users worldwide, marking it as one of the standout improvements in version 17.20. Let's dive into what makes the Site-Wide Topology v2.0 a game-changer for network management and troubleshooting.

A Brief Overview of Site-Wide Topology

Originally, the Site-Wide Topology feature was designed to help network administrators quickly identify points of failure within their cloud-managed networks. By allowing users to visualize how devices are connected and where potential issues might arise, it has become an indispensable tool for efficient network troubleshooting.

What's New in Version 2.0?

Enhanced User Experience

The first thing users will notice is the significant improvement in the user interface and experience. The ability to pan across the entire topology and zoom in or out with a mouse scroll offers a more intuitive way to navigate through the network, especially beneficial for environments with over 100 devices. This ease of navigation ensures that administrators can effortlessly trace connections and pinpoint issues without the need for extensive manual searching.

Expanded Issue Tracking

One of the standout features of Site-Wide Topology v2.0 is its extended issue tracking capabilities, now including end clients. This means that network problems can be traced all the way from the source to the end user, offering a comprehensive view of the network's health and facilitating quicker resolutions to connectivity issues.

Integrated Device Detail Window

Another notable enhancement is the integration of several troubleshooting pages into a single device detail window within the Site-Wide Topology page. This integration allows administrators to gather preliminary information about devices, verify connections, and even utilize live tools for immediate troubleshooting — all without leaving the topology view. This consolidation of features streamlines the troubleshooting process, saving valuable time and effort.

Advanced Controls and Customization

The updated Site-Wide Topology also introduces advanced controls for network visualization, including options to collapse or expand network segments, apply different display options, and even download a detailed PDF version of the topology. These features provide administrators with the flexibility to tailor the topology view to their specific needs, enhancing the overall network management experience.

Future Enhancements and Developments

Zyxel Networks is committed to continuous improvement, and future updates to Site-Wide Topology are already in the pipeline. One such planned enhancement is the inclusion of port numbers in the PDF topology download, allowing for an even more detailed understanding of device connections.

Embracing the Nebula Professional Pack

The advancements introduced in Site-Wide Topology v2.0 justify its status as part of the Nebula Professional Pack. With its time-saving tools and comprehensive network insights, it represents a significant leap forward in cloud-managed network troubleshooting and management.
