Most of your network runs SNMP, so you want to monitor all your alarms with your SNMP manager. That makes a lot of sense, because there are many advantages to consolidating your monitoring on a single platform.
But not everything on your network is native SNMP. You also need to monitor discrete alarms and analog alarms to really see what's going on at your remote sites. How can you monitor these alarms without using a second management system?
The answer is a remote telemetry unit that collects discrete and analog alarms and sends them as SNMP traps to your SNMP manager. This advanced remote will fully capture discrete and analog alarm data, including severity, location, date/time, and live analog values, and send detailed information in the trap packet.
This will give you full visibility of equipment failures and environmental conditions at your remote site that can result in network downtime. And you'll get this visibility without the expense of maintaining a specialized network monitoring system to monitor only these alarms.
When you are integrating a wide variety of remote telemetry devices, including SNMP and legacy protocols, the ideal solution is to integrate all your monitoring into a single multiprotocol monitoring platform, for several reasons.
Using a single interface for all your monitoring applications will:
