MDS InSite™
Radio System Management Software
Version 6i - Internet Ready Diagnostics

InSite 6i Radio System Management Software allows network-wide control and monitoring of GE MDS multiple address (MAS) master stations, LEDR™ point-to-point radios, remote radios, spread spectrum radios, tail-end links and repeater stations through the use of a personal computer.

InSite 6i is a powerful software tool for keeping your radio system operating at peak performance, and for detecting minor problems before they become a threat to radio network operations. This software is compatible with any personal computer running Microsoft Windows 95, 98, ME or NT™, including laptops and portables with 800x600 display resolution. This permits InSite 6i to be used for field diagnostics as well as daily radio system monitoring from a central location. In addition, Version 6i has non-intrusive alarm and diagnostic polling, E-mail notification, and flexible display/archiving capabilities. For the latest in system diagnostics and maintenance, specify GE MDS radio products and InSite 6i Radio System Management Software.
