What network improvement goals do you have for the new year? Better security for your network monitoring? More preventive monitoring of your UPS batteries?
New and improved DPS products are always in the works, and in 2023 you can easily implement our G6 platform to make your network monitoring system better than ever.
The NetGuardian G6 832A is a powerful, compact LAN-based alarm collector that provides network managers with remote visibility of their IP network elements. This versatile unit is an ideal network monitoring solution for medium and large sites, with:
In addition to network and environmental alarms and controls, the NetGuardian also acts as a terminal server for 8 serial ports, giving you a convenient path to legacy devices - or even a backup path to more modern gear. Alarms can be reported via SNMP (v1-v3) or to the T/Mon alarm master.
The integrated LCD screen and speaker (with volume knob) make it easy to check alarms locally. The web interface is fast and secure (TLS v1.2).
The NetGuardian 832A is easy to install. If you already have a NetGuardian at your site, installation of a NetGuardian G6 832A is as easy as transferring the cables from your existing unit to a new G6 RTU.
The HVAC Controller is a lead-lag controller to manage your remote HVAC units for maximum life.
The convenient front-panel LCD touchscreen allows you to run tests on each unit, configure controls and alarms, and see the status of all HVACs. When not in test mode, the display cycles through several screens with multi-zone temperature readings, lead-lag status, and more.
As it's essentially a telco-grade RTU with specialized HVAC functions, you also gain 12 general-purpose discrete inputs and 12 additional relay outputs (above and beyond 4 RYWG relays per HVAC unit) Add D-Wire sensors to ensure specific "hot zones" receive adequate climate control. Temperature & Air Flow sensors let you assess HVAC performance (bad compressor, clogged filter, etc.) and trend each unit's output over time.
Despite the obvious advantages of an open standard, early versions of SNMP (v1 & v2c) were not built with security in mind. This poses a big challenge today if you work at a security-conscious organization, like a utility or government entity, that now requires encrypted SNMPv3 (due to NERC/FERC security requirements).
If you need to upgrade to SNMPv3, you're going to need some amount of new hardware. But you can't afford to replace all of your equipment.
The SNMP v3 Proxy is a single-function device that takes in SNMPv1/v2c traps from many sources and converts those traps to SNMP v3. With the SNMP v3 Proxy, nothing leaves your site unencrypted. This secures your network, while eliminating the cost and inconvenience of purchasing all new SNMP v3-enabled equipment.
The SNMP v3 Proxy:
The G6 Platform also includes other equipment, including the NetGuardian 864A, NetGuardian 216, Modbus Proxy, and AB6 power distribution unit.
