·       Busmains & Tapoffs – Provides real-time power chain status and architectural view from the devices feeding the busmain–down to each connected tapoff–as well as cabinets, strips and assets.

·       Virtual PDU – Removes the difficult and costly process of tracking power through expensive physical power strips.

·       NEO-Nlyte Alarm Workflow – Integrates alarms originating and tracked in NEO into a full workflow process–including full ITSM integration.
