Panther Admin

Panther Admin provisioning (ESG) handles access and authorisation of network equipment, as well as assigns and/or administrates IP-addresses in the network.

The ESG are the connection/abstraction layer between hardware and the Panther Admin user interface. The ESG interfaces with DHCP Server(s), firewall(s) and routers/switches, modems/cpes. The ESG has multiple operation modes. Each setup will be described in separate integration paper.

Application interfaces


Open Network MAC log

This module monitors the switches in the network, and keeps track of which customer’s equipment that has been used at a particular time, as well as which mac addresses that belong to which customer. The module is build according to swedish law. This module is needed when the network owner doesn’t have control/access to the DHCP server, and an identification of an end-user has to be made using the mac addresses.

Proactive Security Redirect Service

Will automatically redirect an infected end-user to the self-service portal for an on-line virus scan, or if the end user reached a defined invoice reminder. Extension to the Network Surveillance module, the Self-Service Portal module and the Provisioning modules.

Functionality list

  • Automatic triggered redirect of infected client computers
  • Customers gets redirected to the self service portal
  • Customers can choose to ignore redirects for at preset time period
