Update on GateManager 5
Since our last newsletter in summer our biggest focus has been on GateManager 5.
Many of our customers and partners have already upgraded their GateManager 4 servers, and in September we upgraded our fleet of hosted GateManager servers also. This did cause some hick-ups in relation to getting older LinkManager installations at level with the new technology. And for the experienced GateManager 4 users, it did require getting used to the new web based GateManager Portal interface.
But after just a few days with GateManager 5, even the most skeptic users spots the benefits. The three most significant advantages that we have received the most positive feedback on are:
- Fully Web browser controlled (use PC, iPad, Android etc.)
- Highly flexible and transparent license and account management
- All elements are now drag’n’drop (including licenses and accounts)
Short news: Secomea is now starting distribution in Brazil with our partner Omni.
Jointly we will attend the 2012 edition of the ISA Automation fair in Sau Paulo.

This product targets the larger installations where there is a need to access equipment at different physical networks at the site. But the 4 device ports can also operate as a standard switch, and thereby eliminate the need of an additional switch.
