How This Application Works:

This solution will enable you to utilize your existing microwave infrastructure and provide a single source monitoring system. This is made possible by DPS Telecom, who will provide you with a P4 Protocol Software Module, which will allow for the alarm collection and remote login functions for specific alarms of the microwave radios.

Of course the overall goal of this project is to provide you with a single point of monitoring, the T/Mon NOC Master Station. Preloaded with the P4 Software Modules it will be able to receive alarms over RS485. In addition this proposal features eighteen (18) NetGuardians that have the ability to provide alarm monitoring as well as act as a terminal server for the microwave radios, thus giving those very same radios the ability to report over IP to the T/Mon NOC. In addition the NetGuardians will provide an improve view of the remote sites and report those alarms the T/Mon NOC over IP, RS485 or even a plain old telephone line in case of LAN failure.

Though you have requested a single T/Mon NOC in your email, we recommend the use of a dual configuration package. This will considerably fortify your disaster recovery architecture. It takes the form of the T/Mon NOC Master Station working in conjunction with a secondary T/Mon NOC in a hot standby mode. Not only does this solution provide the best means of centralized monitoring, but also in the event of catastrophic failure with one master the secondary master will be able to take over alarm monitoring.
