Seamlessly Track Cable & Circuit Changes
Are you still tracking your cable and circuit documentation in out-of-date spreadsheets or Visio diagrams?
Poor cable management can lead to a number of inefficiencies that directly affect the bottom line: slower troubleshooting because circuits cannot be properly traced, stranded ports and subcomponents due to partial decommissioning of fiber connectivity…and the list goes on.
Many companies overlook the importance of cable and circuit management in a Data Center Infrastructure Management solution, but cables and circuits are the entities that glue it all together! Having a proper cable management software and a sound circuit management process in place are key to a successful, integral DCIM implementation.

Customer Success Story: UBL
"The Java-based system we had for our cable and asset management just wasn’t cutting it anymore. From installation to implementation and adoption, netTerrain delivered. netTerrain saves us time and money – and simplifies our work with its incredible usability. Without question, it’s more efficient, faster and cost-effective than the previous system we had.”
Inefficient Java-based system replaced.
Money & time saved by switching to netTerrain.
netTerrain DCIM can be used as an ideal cable management solution for copper and fiber cabling, circuit management (from layer 1 to layer 7), or even wireless and radio connectivity, both for inside and outside plant.
With netTerrain’s cable management features you will trouble shoot things quickly using our circuit layout records and circuit mapping, more efficiently manage inventory by carefully tracking occupancy and connectivity down to the connector detail and save money in assets due to proper commissioning and decommissioning of ports and sub-components.
