Revamping the MSE User Interface

As part of the WLC 8.0 release, we addressed customer comments and revamped the user interface (UI) for the MSE. We wanted to make it easier for customers using both MSE and PI to adjust to larger deployments. We also wanted to quicken the pace at which we could deliver features to the customers. Today I want to walk you through the landing page and configuration of the new MSE UI.

Landing Page

The landing page is the first thing one sees when logging into  the MSE UI. This page provides the user with a basic snapshot of system health, an easy way to launch the apps, and a quick status of the various services on MSE.

System Health

The new UI highlights important parameters like CPU and Memory usage in order to give the user an indication of the stress being handled by the MSE.

What if we have this paradigm all wrong? What if the approach shouldn’t be about adding sensory technology to inanimate objects, but rather adding a sensory system into our entire world – one that provides recall memory, recording and feedback capabilities – effectively making our real world into one giant virtual world?

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a well received guest post on this blog that discussed the balance between technology and humanity, and the balance that is achieved by implementing submissive design.

This morning I watched the spine-tingling TED Talks video below which takes submissive design to a much deeper and exponentially more exciting level, and I just had to share it with you!

The Balance Between Technology and Humanity is Fueling Technology’s Popularity

Balance_between_TechandhumanityWe are living in arguably the most exciting time in human history, and I’m mesmerized by how fast our world is evolving thanks to brilliant technologies and the sheer volume of inanimate objects that are connecting to the internet on a daily basis, forming the internet of everything (IoE).

As much as it seems everything is digital these days, our world is almost entirely analog. However, digital technology (and its massive potential to revolutionize our world) is trending toward mainstream popularity, in spite of traditionally being relegated to the minds of the ‘geeky’ few. The reason for this trend is simpler than it might initially appear and it’s the topic of this post. Read More »
