There are seven key telemetry functions that standard SNMP managers do not support - functions that are crucial for effective protection of your network.
An integrated, multiprotocol master can receive SNMP traps and process them as standard telemetry alarms. The result is greater visibility of your SNMP devices, with support for:
An advanced alarm management system can act both as an SNMP trap processor and an SNMP agent. It can both receive SNMP traps and forward SNMP traps to multiple SNMP managers.
This function is perfect for any application where alarm data needs to go to different places. You can monitor a regional network locally and forward alarms to an upper-level manager monitoring the whole network; you can forward alarms to multiple managers as part of a geodiversity backup plan; or you can send specific types of traps to different SNMP managers.Use Multiple Display and Notification Options
A multiprotocol master will also give you a wider range of options for displaying your alarm data and sending notifications. A full-feature master supports multiple notification and display methods to ensure that critical information gets to the people who need it, including pager/e-mail notification, a Web Browser interface, and optional presentation software that displays information on a physical map of your network.Integrate SNMP and Non-SNMP Devices on the Same Platform
An integrated, multiprotocol master will poll all your non-SNMP devices, allowing you to consolidate all your alarm monitoring on a single platform. You can eliminate the need for specialized terminals and reduce the number of screens your staff needs to monitor to one. All of your alarm data is integrated into a single display that can show you - at a glance - the state of your entire network.
