Deployed in the NOC, the Uplogix Control Center delivers real-time monitoring and management capabilities, offering a unified view of what's occurring in your distributed infrastructure. As an element manager for Uplogix Local Managers, the Control Center also serves as the gateway between the Local Managers in the network and existing IT management systems.
Uplogix Control Center is deployed on a pre-configured, dual CPU, rack-mountable server, and includes an embedded Oracle database engine. It is also available as a VM to run on a customer-provider server. Consult with Uplogix Professional Services for minimum requirements for a UCC VM installation.

With its web-based graphical user interface (GUI), Control Center puts IT administrators in control of real-time data to easily manage, configure, and control all network devices and servers connected to Uplogix Local Managers.
