Do you have between 5 and 100 remote sites? Whether you work in a telco, utility, county (police/fire), or transit industry, that's a sweet spot for common problems and this proven solution:
Your network is made up of generators, surveillance equipment, switches and other mission critical equipment. You know how important it is to monitor the health of each of your sites and all your devices. Plus, site visibility is crucial to network uptime and happy customers.
You could use multiple monitoring systems to create a patchwork of site visibility. A system for monitoring your generators, security cameras with individual monitors for each, a building entry security unit; the list is endless. It may seem like all your equipment is being watched by something, but this becomes cumbersome. Before you know it, your techs have to check multiple screens and devices to catch any alarms. With each piece of equipment, your margin of error increases significantly and critical alarms get missed.
Another theoretical option is a complete equipment swap out, which would streamline your system. But that can be extremely expensive and time-consuming to set up. Plus, your techs then have to learn a whole new system. If something goes wrong, not even your most seasoned tech has the experience or knowledge to fix it.
What you need is an all-in-one monitoring solution that can not only improve site visibility, but can also unify all your existing equipment. A good alarm master can pull this off. That way, you don't have multiple monitoring platforms and you only have to purchase one unit, rather than new equipment for every site.
You need a system that can mediate multiple proprietary protocols as well as support your still functioning legacy equipment that you already have implemented. A streamlined graphic interface is ideal for unifying all your alarms and notifications in one central location for your techs to check, eliminating room for error. The perfect system is designed with industry in mind. You want something that is robust and time-tested from a company with experience in your industry and reputation to back it up.
