President's Letter: July 2010

As you may have read in the email newsletter earlier this month, our T/Mon LNX upgrade program is now in full swing. We've created a lot of interesting opportunities for T/Mon NOC and IAM users to upgrade to the latest T/Mon hardware platform. T/Mon LNX supports SQL history logging for exponentially faster reports, more TCP sockets for more ASCII-Processor jobs, and our intuitive new Web 2.0 interface.

We've also announced the new NetGuardian 216 Test Box. Just like similar boxes for the 832A and 864A that were released earlier, this test box allows you to simulate incoming alarm conditions and watch for the results to appear on your RTU and/or master station interface. It includes a toggle switch for every discrete input, potentiometers (knobs) for the general-purpose analog inputs, and LEDs to monitor control relay output.

If you'll be in California in the future, give our office a call so we can schedule a visit. By the way, lately I've had the opportunity to meet several of you that way, and have enjoyed the face-face visits, as well as the chance to give you a tour of our facilities.

We're within a few hours' drive of San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Sacramento. If you're further away, you can always fly into the Fresno airport (FAT/FYI). We're located just 2 blocks from the terminal, and we'll even pick you up.

Until next time,

Eric Storm, President of DPS Telecom

President's Letter: August 2010

This month, DPS is introducing a new, medium-sized RTU with a capacity between a NetGuardian 216 and a NetGuardian 832A. If you have sites with that capacity need, don't miss our feature article on the new NetGuardian 420.

Even as teleconferencing technology improves, there really is nothing quite like a face-to-face meeting to get an infrastructure project moving. If you're in Texas or a neighboring state, you have a chance in September to meet with DPS in person at the Comptel Plus 2010 Convention & Expo in Dallas, TX. For details, read this month's feature article.

Remember, our annual Users Group and Advanced Training Class are rapidly approaching. This is the best way to extend your ASCII and SNMP skill sets and to contribute to next year's new features. The Advanced Class runs from Monday, October 4 to Wednesday, October 6, 2010. The Users Group finishes out the week on Thursday and Friday (October 6 & 7). If you want to attend one or both events, send an email to FactoryTraining@dpstele.com.

Until next time,

Eric Storm, President of DPS Telecom
