How This White Paper Will Help You

Most SNMP reference books aren't written for you, the telecom professional who needs to monitor network alarms with SNMP. Instead, most SNMP books are written for IT techs.

This guidebook has been created to give you the information you need to successfully implement SNMP-based alarm monitoring in your network. It's an introduction to SNMP strictly from the prospective of telecom network alarm management, with fast specific answers to help you make SNMP monitoring work in your network.
