Some network managers don't monitor small sites like remote huts, collocation racks or enclosed cabinets. Some don't even monitor large sites if they have fewer than 32 alarm points.
It's a major mistake to not monitor small sites. Problems can happen anywhere. Every blind spot in your network visibility, no matter how small, is a place where you won't know about problems until equipment finally fails.
With the density of modern equipment, site size is often a poor indicator of outage impact. Even small-scale network outages can erode your revenue. Recurring equipment failures at small sites can eat away at your repair and equipment budgets.
Proactive companies are now actively looking to monitor small sites to avoid these problems.
Think about your smaller sites and ask yourself: Can I afford expensive damage to this equipment? Will my network stay up if this site shuts down?
Small NetGuardian RTU Models: the cost-effective solution to monitor small sites
So why do network managers run the risks of not monitoring their smaller sites? Because they think they can't monitor small sites cost-effectively.
Savvy network managers know that network monitoring doesn't always mean high-capacity RTUs, dedicated lines, and hundreds of man-hours spent on configuration and databasing.
These smaller RTUs make that kind of thinking possible. They're exactly the right capacity to monitor small sites. You get the alarm capability you need without spending a fortune on alarm capacity you won't use.
Light capacity doesn't mean light on features or on quality. Smaller NetGuardians are scaled-down versions of our popular NetGuardian 832A, and they include features you'd usually find only on complex, high-capacity remotes.
NetGuardians are easy to install and configure, making it simple to add network monitoring capability anywhere in your network:
