How LAN Migration Works - Step Two: Install a LAN Connection

Previous Page:Migrate To LAN
When a LAN connection is added to the site, the dial-up connection is retained as a backup data path.

Later, a LAN connection is installed at the remote site. The same SNMP RTU installed in Step One can be immediately transferred to LAN transport with minimal configuration - and without disconnecting alarm inputs. (Figure 2).

A dial-up connection can be retained as a backup secondary connection in case of LAN failure.

You can also take advantage of modern wireless technologies to supply an IP connection to your site. Cellular modems and even satellite connections have dropped in price dramatically, making them a viable option where wired LAN isn't workable. Cellular has an obvious advantage whenever possible, as its hardware and bandwidth prices are much lower.

You don't have to cut over all your sites at once - you can gradually migrate different sectors of your network to LAN, as your budget and installation manpower allows.

Get a Custom Application Diagram of Your Perfect-Fit Monitoring System

There is no other network on the planet that is exactly like yours. For that reason, you need to build a monitoring system that's the right fit for you.

"Buying more than you need" and "buying less than you need" are real risks. You also have to think about training, tech support, and upgrade availability.

Send me a quick online message about what you're trying to accomplish. I'll work with you to build a custom PDF application diagram that's a perfect fit for your network.


Make an Informed Decision


Your network isn't off-the-shelf.

Your monitoring system shouldn't be, either.
