Your Benefits

HiMobile has added a further dimension to smartphones - an indispensable tool for network administrators - used to increase network availability. This is because HiMobile allows status information on network devices to be accessed directly and conveniently from a tablet or a smartphone - even if you are not at your workplace. A special formatted QR code can be used to scan a device's IP address and the status information can be viewed immediately on the display. Network devices can also be accessed quickly via product lists.

HiMobile from Hirschmann™

Status information can be displayed directly with HiMobile and the network management software Industrial HiVision on smartphones or tablets with Hirschmann™ switches, thus improving network availability. The app runs on browser-capable mobile devices and supports Apple, Android and Windows Phone operating systems. Special QR codes and product lists allow convenient entry of IP addresses. The connection to the network devices can be established via WLAN, Ethernet or 3G.

HiMobile is suitable for practically all applications that depend on seamless processes and effective data communication. Examples include systems in the food and beverage sector, material handling, printing machines and robotic applications. Network availability can also be improved with this app in the oil and gas sector, and in power generation from wind turbines and solar panels. The same also applies for road and rail transport, airports and seaports.
