Rome, N.Y.- July 3,2001-

Dart Communications, the market leader of Internet Application Development Components, is pleased to announce the release of PowerSNMP for ActiveX 2.0. Dart, working together with some of its largest SNMP customers, has completely redesigned PowerSNMP for ActiveX to fit the needs of global organizations that need to manage devices across their enterprise.

This latest version of PowerSNMP for ActiveX allows for easy, high-performance communications with network devices and applications. It includes completely rewritten algorithms designed to compile and verify thousands of MIBs simultaneously and potentially millions of objects, since the component engine will scale with your system’s memory and CPU availability. Other new features of PowerSNMP for ActiveX Version 2.0 include powerful native Table support and comprehensive ASN.1 and SNMP 2c compliance.

Additionally, as an add-on product to PowerSNMP for ActiveX, Dart will soon release the PowerTCP MIB Compress. This product will enable speed, portability, and security by creating a single binary compressed image from thousands of MIBs that can be natively read by PowerSNMP for ActiveX. It will eliminate the need to distribute all the MIBs with your application, prevent unintended alteration of the MIBs, and save memory when working with large numbers of MIBs.

Dart CommunicationsEenhancements to PowerSNMP for ActiveX make it the best product for building SNMP solutions. Dart’s Product Manager, Alex Gladshtein states, “With comprehensive ASN.1 and SNMP 2c compliance and the fastest MIB compile time of any similar product on the market today, we believe PowerSNMP for ActiveX is the fastest and most compliant SNMP development product available.E/p>

PowerSNMP for ActiveX Version 2.0 is available now and lists for $999. Additional information about this product and a 30-day trial can be found at Dart Communications website.
