Remote Monitoring & Control

DPS Solutions

As a trusted provider of monitoring and control solutions for over 30 years, DPS Telecom will help you design a reliable system for collecting and managing alarm and control information. Serving utility, telecom, transportation and other companies with large distributed equipment networks, we offer a unique combination of master alarm management systems and remote telemetry units (RTUs) that provide end-to-end, single-vendor network monitoring.

Custom Fitted to Your Needs

At DPS, selecting the right telemetry system is not just about selling off-the-shelf product into your network. We specialize in custom supervisory control and data acquisition solutions.

We are not a vendor that expects you to use a unit designed for somebody else with capacity you don't need and features you don't want. Our engineers have the design experience required to make sure your DPS Telecom remote telemetry units are a perfect fit for you. An unmatched and continuously expanding selection of proven intelligent telemetry units collect environmental information and events at remote locations for presentation at central network operating centers.

Remote Telemetry Units

Quality network management starts with intelligent telemetry units collecting environmental and equipment information at remote locations and Power Distribution Units. Intelligent remotes, like the DPS Telecom NetGuardian surveillance and control unit, include web-enabled configuration and management interfaces. You do not need to develop and/or download scripts or programs in order for the units to effectively collect telemetry out of the box.

Alarm Collection Masters

The remote monitoring and control data is transported to central locations (think operating center) where events are presented for effective management and control decisions. Information transport can involve a wide-variety of options including traditional serial data channels and more contemporary network infrastructure.

Professional telemetry management systems, like the DPS Telecom T/Mon Master should be more than just recycled IT network management tools. The presentation of telemetry data should also be more than just fancy graphics with detailed information eight layers deep. Information should also be available for efficient day-to-day operations with details quickly accessible for 24/7/365 event management and control.
