SNMP Applications for AFDX® / ARINC664 Networks

The introduction of the AFDX® (Avionics Full Duplex Switched Ethernet) and ARINC664 data network on-board of future aircrafts, including the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and the Airbus A380 fleet of aircrafts, has created a need for SNMP Agents and SNMP Managers capable of communications over full feature AFDX® / ARINC664 networks.

The task of retrieving, viewing, and analyzing SNMP MIB data from End Systems residing on aircraft data networks is a primary concern to the aircraft developers, airline operators and maintenance teams.

To support this need NuDesign Technologies has partnered with the leaders in the field, providing SNMP products to test departments, and OEM’s supplying the avionics industry.  NuDesign's software requires the use of our partner's AFDX® compliant hardware, software drivers and programmatic API's to provide secure SNMPv3 capability in this environment.

AFDX® is a registered trademark of Airbus.


snmpXplorer - AFDX® / ARINC664 SNMP Manager

The snmpXplorer combines the robust SNMP monitoring, test and analysis features with industry leading ARINC664 interface modules and complete suite of ARINC664 test and analysis tools.  The snmpXplorer is fully compatible with most of our avionics industry partners PCI, cPCI, PCMCIA, and PMC AFDX®/ARINC664 modules.

Key Features of snmpXplorer:

  • Support for SNMP V1/V2 and V3 management, analyzing, test, configuration and monitoring functions over the AFDX® / ARINC 664 data networks.
  • Simultaneous SNMP communication with multiple agents via user defined AFDX® / ARINC664 Virtual Links.
  • An Intuitive Browse Tree displaying all MIB constructs that have an OID assignment.
  • Automated testing of SNMP Agent MIB implementations – two buttons: one to find MIBs implemented by the agent, second to invoke pre-canned tests that verify accuracy and completeness of SNMP Agent MIB implementation against its MIB document.
  • Rich alarm handling capabilities: support for different alarm detection algorithms for charts.
  • An import/compile facility for enterprise MIBs including automatic loading of MIB Import dependencies.

The snmpXplorer is available for evaluation and purchase from our avionics industry partners, please contact NuDesign or your preferred partner to arrange evaluation package.
