Protocol mediation lets you continue to use valuable, functioning legacy equipment in an SNMP monitoring solution. In this application on-site equipment reporting in TBOS protocol is connected via serial interface to an SNMP remote. The alarm data is translated on-site to SNMP alarm messages (traps) and forwarded via LAN to an SNMP manager.
The same SNMP remote also has standard equipment monitoring and environmental alarms. Combining many monitoring operations in a single unit, a multifunctional remote is a practical and cost-effective monitoring solution for an entire site.
