DPS Telecom Introduces the Essential TL1 Guide White Paper

Fresno, Calif. -- DPS Telecom, a leading developer of network alarm monitoring solutions, announced today that they have released a valuable new addition to their white paper series, The Essential TL1 Guide.

Each monitoring system produced at DPS is custom-designed to meet individual client specifications. For many clients, one of the major benefits of this process is that it enables them to integrate their legacy equipment into their new monitoring system.

"Many people now consider TL1 to be a legacy protocol, but we're seeing a surprising number of clients coming in and requesting TL1 capabilities," said DPS Telecom President Eric Storm. "We released our new white paper to assist network professionals and busy executives in understanding the essentials of this protocol and the important implications TL1 has for their business."

The Essential TL1 Guide covers a variety of topics, such as how the protocol is structured, common TL1 message types, and potential pitfalls to avoid. It also includes sample messages and errors to make troubleshooting TL1 errors much easier.

"Our engineers are experts in TL1 so that our clients don't have to be," said DPS Senior Engineer Mark Carberry. "We've included only the most important TL1 information, so readers won't be overwhelmed with a massive standards document. While you don't have to be a TL1 expert, you must have a core working knowledge of the protocol to know what you can expect from TL1 telemetry reporting. This guide includes the essential TL1 fundamentals, providing all the information you need in a quick format."

Also featured in the TL1 Guide is information on integrating TL1 equipment into contemporary network monitoring systems. The guide details how this can be done cost-effectively by adopting a multi-protocol alarm master, such as T/Mon NOC, which can interpret TL1 and many other legacy protocols.

DPS publishes a wealth of technical content for their clients and site visitors, including their white paper series and client success stories. "My clients and other people in telecommunications have lots of questions, and there's no accepted place to get the answers," said DPS CEO Bob Berry. "So I decided to make DPS' expertise in the technology and business of network monitoring available to those professionals whose jobs depend on network uptime."

The entire collection of technical resource pages, white papers, clients success stories and testimonials, and more can be found on the DPS website at www.DpsTelecom.com. To download the TL1 white paper, visit www.DpsTelecom.com/tl1_wp .
