Reality Check: How to Get Better Visibility of Your SNMP Alarms

Receiving Traps is Only the Beginning of Effective SNMP Monitoring.

There's a big difference between basic alarm monitoring and intelligent alarm management. Any basic system will give you some kind of notification of an alarm. But simple status reports don't provide effective full visibility of your network.

Automated Correction

Your staff can't hover around a screen watching for alarms with their full attention 24/7. A simple system cannot get alarm information to the people who can correct problems quick enough to make a difference. And some problems require immediate action far faster than any human being can respond.

Using a basic alarm monitoring system makes it more likely that faults will not be corrected, potentially resulting in serious damage to your network and your revenue.

Intelligent Notification

An intelligent alarm management system won't just tell personnel there's a problem; it will locate the problem, provide instructions for corrective action, route alarm information directly to the people who need it, and, if possible, correct the problem automatically. Advanced features like these can make the difference between a minor incident and major downtime, and that's a crucial edge to have in today's competitive telecom industry.
