You may have thought that extending your WAN, deploying monitoring, and implementing a series of terminal servers would be an incredible feat of engineering, logistics, and deployment, requiring lots of capital budget and more time than you will ever have.
The reality is that an integrated solution, such as the NetGuardian 216T, addresses all of these issues. It allows you to, in a single-rack unit and DC-powered device, address your T1 interface (FrameRelay or PPP), discrete alarm monitoring, and analog alarm monitoring, remotely control devices via relays, perform terminal server functionality, and provide 7 all-important LAN feeds that will bring your other site elements (including your technicians' laptops) into your network.
Achieving visibility at sites outside of your LAN isn't as hard as you think. In fact, it's a lot easier than trying to maintain uptime without adequate monitoring and without access to revenue-generating equipment.
After you take time to fairly assess the high costs of not monitoring adequately, installing a high-quality monitoring device is a no-brainer. It only takes a few saved truck rolls or prevented outages for good monitoring equipment to pay for itself, resulting in an excellent ROI that will make you (and your boss) happy.
