How to have SNMP, Modbus, and Closures trigger email/SMS alerts...

Remote sites are packed with lots of different equipment. Backup generators, HVAC systems, and power systems are all essential to your network uptime, but the mixture of gear creates a monitoring headache. How do you maintain uptime and monitor different equipment with different outputs and protocols?

T/Mon can manage devices either directly (ex. SNMP, Modbus, and other protocols), or through the use of RTUs (ex. contact closures). T/Mon alarms can be monitored from the web browser interface. Alerts can also be sent to phones, emails, or another master.

You could use a LAN-based console without RTUs or phone/email alerts to monitor everything, but that can be limiting. If you have both legacy gear that only outputs contact closures, you might not be able to monitor everything. Additionally, if your NOC isn't 7x24, you run the risk of missing critical alarms after hours if you don't have phone/email notifications.

The best solution is a master station with voice and email capabilities. When purchasing a master, be sure to consider the following things:

Questions like these are important and guarantee that you'll purchase a master that works for all your equipment.

The T/Mon Master Station, manufactured by DPS Telecom, is one master that can integrate with almost any remote network equipment.
