T/Mon Alarm Master Review: Advanced Remote Alarm Monitoring And Control
The T/Mon LNX alarm master integrates all your alarm inputs to a single platform, enabling you to monitor and forward all your alarm data for numerous applications.
Upgrading to the T/Mon LNX Alarm Master is the easy, cost-effective way to take care of your monitoring needs for many years. When you select a network alarm master system, you are making a choice that will stay with your network for as long as 10 years. Therefore, it is smart to plan ahead and choose a monitoring system that's both advanced for today and adaptable for future needs.
The T/Mon LNX is the next generation hardware platform for the T/Mon Remote Alarm Monitoring System. T/Mon software never goes obsolete-because of its modular software design, new monitoring capabilities are continuously added to T/Mon to meet the real- world operational needs of technical network managers like you.
Advanced Hardware Platform for T/Mon
These software developments demand the advanced new hardware of the T/Mon LNX alarm master unit. T/Mon LNX is an entirely new T/Mon hardware platform, delivering alarm-processing performance that's 2 - 4 times faster than the T/Mon NOC Alarm Master System. T/Mon LNX offers improved performance for all monitoring applications, but it especially shines for these critical advanced features:
ASCII alarm processing
Down-to-the-card detail on switches, routers, multiplexers, PBXs and many other kinds of equipment.
SNMP trap processing
Process SNMP traps with all the advanced features of T/Mon, and put all your alarms on one screen.
Improved Web Browser / Mobile Interface
A much improved, easy-to-use interface for accessing your alarm data from any computer. Taking full advantage of the T/Mon LNX LAMP architecture to allow exciting interface options for browser or mobile access.
Advanced Hardware Enhancements
Swappable, expandable Port Interface Cartridges:
T/Mon LNX serial interface ports are actually modular cartridges that are easily accessible and expandable. If your transport needs ever change, T/Mon LNX changes with them.
Hard Drive Redundancy
A redundant disk configuration (true RAID 1) protects your alarm database and network monitoring from disk drive failures.
T/Mon LNX Alarm Master System Applications
Support for Existing Equipment
T/Mon LNX maintains support for ASCII, DCP, DCM, E2A, FX8800, SNMP, TABS, TBOS, TL1, and TRIP, so it's already compatible with your existing equipment. And if you think you are locked into your legacy system, the T/Mon LNX offers you the way out. T/Mon LNX can poll third-party equipment by Badger, Granger, Larse, NEC, Pulsecom, and Teltrac. You can immediately upgrade to T/Mon without throwing away your investments in working equipment.
Integrate All Your Alarms to a Single Screen
T/Mon LNX integrates all your alarms to one screen, so you always know exactly what's going on in your network.
Support any transport you need
If you need to support multiple transports, you need T/Mon LNX standard 6-port LAN and 24 port serial polling configurable for RS-232, RS-422/485, 212 modem, 202 modem, FSK modem, and PSK modem.
Support for Advanced Remotes
DPS Telecom makes a full range of remote units for T/Mon LNX featuring discrete and analog alarms, control relays, built-in remote visibility through a Web browser interface, and easy configuration. DPS offers remotes for small, medium, and large sites, for LAN, dial-up, and dedicated connections. Remotes like the NetGuardian, the KDA series, the DPM series, the AlphaMax, and the MAS series have won the respect of the industry for their capability and reliability.
COS and Standing Alarms: Coordinated but Separate
The T/Mon Change of State (COS) screen provides immediate notification of new events in your network. You don't have to hunt to find out what has changed in your network - the COS screen lists it for you. The Standing Alarms screen displays all current alarms. Acknowledging events doesn't reduce visibility to standing problem conditions.
T/Mon SLIM / T/Mon MINI: Options for Specific Applications
The T/Mon SLIM and T/Mon MINI Remote Alarm Master Systems provide options for smaller, local and regional networks.

- Consolidating alarms from several sites into a single local/regional network view
- Monitoring segmented alarms in SNMP, ASCII and several legacy protocols
- Sending distributed email and other notifications to technicians in the field
- Remotely accessing alarms via Web browser
- Forwarding alarms to another T/Mon LNX or SNMP manager at a centralized location
- Maintaining distributed alarm history
- Analyzing past alarms to identify network weak spots and anticipate future problems
Perfectly Sized for Your Network
The T/Mon SLIM and T/Mon MINI provide new options for networks that do not need the full capacity of a T/Mon LNX. Built around the same hardware platform as the T/Mon LNX but optioned with capacties better suited to specific applications.
