Tools In The New T/Mon NOC For Faster, Easier, More Effective Network Monitoring

What can you achieve with the new T/Mon NOC? Plenty. The first thing you'll notice about T/Mon NOC is its all-new hardware architecture and faster performance. But what will really impress you is what you can do with it.

T/Mon NOC has power for your most demanding network monitoring needs - plus it's fully compatible with your existing T/Mon database. Here's 7 key hardware advances in T/Mon NOC and what they'll do for you.


Secure Your Network with the New T/Mon NOC

T/Mon NOC is the ideal tool to protect your network against the dangers of service outages and equipment damage. The most advanced T/Mon hardware ever, T/Mon NOC is 2-4 times faster than the IAM-5 or T/MonXM WorkStation and is fully compatible with your existing T/Mon database.

1. You Don't Have to Change Your Database

One of the best things about T/Mon NOC is what hasn't changed - T/Mon NOC is fully compatible with your existing T/Mon alarm database.

You can port your existing alarm database directly to your new T/Mon NOC. Or DPS Telecom can port your database to your new T/Mon NOC for you before delivery.

Database compatibility means you can immediately upgrade to the T/Mon NOC and enjoy all the advantages of greater speed and reliability - with no extra databasing required.

2. Faster Processing of ASCII Alarms, SNMP Traps and Trend Analysis

T/Mon NOC's dramatically more powerful CPU and faster RAM delivers performance 2-4 times faster than T/Mon NOC's predecessors, the IAM-5 and T/MonXM WorkStation.

This means you'll have all the power you need for processor-intensive alarm monitoring applications like ASCII alarm processing, SNMP trap processing, trend analysis and Web page hosting.

Added processing power makes it easier to use advanced T/Mon NOC features that will give you increased visibility of your network:

  • Detailed alarm descriptions from ASCII devices like PBXs, switches, and routers. If anything goes wrong with your revenue-generating equipment, you'll be able to locate exactly which site, which device, and which card has the problem.
  • Full support for SNMP-based alarm monitoring. You can receive traps from SNMP devices, monitor SNMP traps locally on your T/Mon NOC, and even forward and filter traps to an upper-level SNMP manager.

    Plus, T/Mon NOC can manage SNMP traps just like standard T/Mon alarms, with support for advanced T/Mon features like nuisance alarm filtering, pager notifications, derived alarms and controls, alarm silencing and qualification, and more.
  • Track trends and identify problem areas in your network. Trend analysis uses alarm history information to find recurring problems and help you prevent future problems. This data can also help you plan maintenance schedules and equipment replacement.
  • Fast, responsive Web browser access to alarms and controls from any computer, anywhere.

NOC's Port Interface Cartridges (PICs)
let you switch port configurations
on the fly.

3. Change Port Configurations on the Fly with New Port Interface Cartridges

T/Mon NOC ships with 24 interface ports standard - and you can easily change your port configuration without opening the case or changing PCI cards.

The T/Mon NOC supports a new port architecture called Port Interface Cartridges. Each serial port is actually an individual, modular PIC. PICs can be removed, replaced, or added - without tools.

That means it's easier than ever to monitor new devices and new sites on your network. If you need to use a new type of data transport, you can easily add the appropriate Port Interface Cartridge.

Let's say you need to monitor a site that only supports FSK modem transport, and your T/Mon NOC is equipped with only RS-232 ports. In less than five minutes you can remove an RS-232 PIC and replace it with an FSK PIC.

Port Interface Cartridges are available for RS-232, RS-422/485, 202 modem, 212 modem, FSK modem, and PSK modem.

Depending on the ordering option you select, your T/Mon NOC will ship with one, two, or three PCI serial cards, each supporting eight Port Interface Cartridges. Your T/Mon NOC can support 8, 16, or 24 interface ports, making it easy to connect as many serial devices as you need and integrating more of your network monitoring to a common T/Mon NOC platform.

4. T/Mon Hard Drive Mirroring

You can equip your T/Mon NOC with optional T/Mon Hard Drive Mirroring, which protects your network monitoring from hard drive failures. If your primary hard drive ever fails, your T/Mon system can be quickly restored from the secondary mirrored drive with minimum downtime and data loss.

Software control for hard drive mirroring is fully integrated into your T/MonXM software, so you can monitor your hard drive status and receive alerts of hard drive failures through T/Mon internal alarms.

5. Use T/Windows Access over Serial, Dial-Up and LAN Connections

The T/Windows software interface for the T/Mon NOC now supports serial, dial-up, and LAN connections. T/Windows supports every version of Windows from Windows 95 to Windows XP.

You can run the same access software on every workstation on your network, via any connection, to access your T/Mon NOC.

With T/Windows, you work in a familiar GUI environment, giving you true point-and-click access to view and acknowledge alarms, control remote site equipment, and perform other network alarm monitoring tasks.

T/Windows simplifies training, helps you standardize monitoring procedures, and makes network monitoring easy and efficient.

6. Plug Any Monitor and Keyboard in Your T/Mon NOC for Direct Access

You don't need a PC to connect to T/Mon NOC. You can plug any standard monitor and keyboard directly into the unit.

Without a PC, without a connection, without software, you'll have direct control of your T/Mon NOC.

For added convenience, order your T/Mon NOC with an included flat-panel monitor, keyboard, and equipment rack mounting panel.

7. Check Network and System Status in One Glance

The T/Mon NOC's integrated scrolling LCD display provides immediate local visibility of the essential system information: COS and standing alarms, elapsed time since the last system reboot, elapsed time in Monitor Mode, system IP address and serial number.
