The Network Map app has advanced capabilities that provide enhanced visibility of connected devices in the Crystal Eye network. The app also enlists various options that could be used to manage devices on the Crystal Eye network.
The administrator can see all the devices connected to the Crystal Eye Network under the unmapped category of the Network app. These devices can be identified and then be mapped by assigning it device type, Device Nickname, and Vendor Name. After identifying a particular device on the Network Map application, the administrator can assign a Content Filter Policy to it.
The Network Map application is installed by default and can be accessed from the left-hand navigation panel.

Initially, all the devices connected to the Crystal Eye network will pop up in the unmapped category of the network map diagram. However, these unmapped devices can then be further categorized per device.
