In this post, Patton Cloud is in the forecast and things are looking pretty bright… because now you can use the Patton Cloud to discover the other devices on the same LAN segment as your SmartNode or other Trinity-based Patton devices. If THAT doesn’t excite you, you’re reading the wrong article. Just saying.
Patton devices connected to the Patton Cloud can now be instructed to scan the attached network for other devices. How cool is that?
Your SmartNode can go out on the local LAN segment and find other nearby devices, including. . .
- SIP Phones
- IP Routers
You can also connect to the Web GUI of any discovered device using the Patton Cloud management interface.
And. . . you can see details such as
- SIP Ports
- HTTP Ports
- HTTPS Ports
- SNMP Ports
(If you don’t know what those acronyms mean you’re in the wrong place!)
One more thing: you can set up alerts to tell you with a new device shows up on the LAN.
There is more cool stuff too.
