Protect Your Network with Monitoring Hardware

Do you have mission-critical gear at unmanned sites throughout your network? This means that most of the time, you have no idea about the status of this gear. You can't put a person at every single remote site in your network - there just isn't enough manpower.

You also can't afford to leave this gear on its own to operate. If this equipment goes down, how exactly will you know? When your customers lose service? When your entire network comes to a screeching halt and nobody can get any work done? Leaving these essential pieces of gear unmonitored exposes you to serious risk.

Protecting Your Network with Monitoring Hardware
Fortunately, protecting your network - and your bottom line - isn't a complicated task. If you think about it on the most basic level, what do you need?

  1. A sensor that can monitor the device and its immediate surroundings (so you know the instant there's a threat to your gear)
  2. A method to transport this critical data to you
  3. A device to collect all of the outputs and data from these sensors and report this information to you
  4. Depending on the number of sites or the size of your network, you may want all of this data to be centralized into one location - so you may want a master station that consolidates all of your devices into a convenient location

What you'll need is the right network monitor hardware to successfully fulfill these tasks. Lucky for you, finding the devices to monitor your network is about as easy as it sounds. Let's look at what kind of hardware is needed:

Finding the Right Solution
Leaving your network unmonitored can be an expensive mistake. All it takes is one thermal shutdown and you'll be stuck with quite the headache. You'll have irritated customers wondering why their provider can't offer reliable service. Every minute your network is down is wasted money - money that could be spent on other projects.

Don't fall into the "cutting corners" trap. You try to cut corners now by leaving your gear unmonitored, only to get stuck with a much larger bill the first time your network goes down. Choosing the right network monitor hardware now can prevent many outages, which means it will pay for itself several times over by preventing just one outage.

Imagine that. Think about how much you'll save if your monitoring hardware prevents one outage. Now think about if it prevents several. How much budget money could you save each year if you could avoid all of these costly outages and downtime? You don't have to imagine all of this - you can make it a reality.

There's a lot of information to consider when it comes to choosing the right network monitoring hardware. To ensure you're adequately informed to make the best decisions, I recommend downloading and reading the free Network Alarm Monitoring Fundamentals White Paper from DPS.
