The SCS products have been specifically designed for operation by non-IT specialists. The SCS-100, SCS-200 and SCS-400 devices feature intuitive graphical user interfaces that allow one-touch set up and simple configuration. To further assist the user, the system utilises network traffic, SNMP, and event log data to detect and repair faults and provide clear advice on system or device status. The System also features remote administration capabilities through the SCS-NMS if the user requires any additional assistance.

Each SCS device can manage multiple simultaneous external connections and select the optimal communications path based on performance and/or monetary considerations. The SCS can also sense and automatically establish connections with other SCS devices on the same network, further enhancing the communications paths at a system level.
