Better than Homebrew: Get a Fully Supported Custom Remote Monitoring System

Network monitoring demands customized solutions all the time, and a "home brew" solution can seem like an economical quick fix for any problem. Because you're smart and motivated, you think to yourself, "I can get this done quickly and save my company lots of money. I'll be a hero."

Home Brew Solution VS Manufactured Solution
Notice the difference in complexity between a home-brew solution (left) and a custom-designed, fully supported solution from an experienced manufacturer. Trying to do everything yourself leads to big trouble, even though it sounds efficient at the beginning.

Unfortunately, homebrew solutions tend to break down when they have to be scaled up to multiple locations. You look like a hero after the first install, and now your company wants to replicate it everywhere. Get ready for trouble.

While your first site may work smoothly, you're bound to run into this long list of problems when you scale up your homebrew solution:

You need to work with a manufacturer who gives you customization without the headaches of brewing something yourself...

Now imagine a system that has the custom fit of a "home brew" solution, with the reliability of a manufactured solution. It's backed by a company with years of experience. This solution would be made exactly to your needs. There's no paying for what you don't need or compromising on what you do. This solution would also have 24/7 tech support and documentation for everything from installation to utilization to troubleshooting.

With DPS Telecom, a complete, perfect-fit solution can be yours without all the problems of typical "home brew" solutions. In fact, the diagram above is based on the NetGuardian 216T (T1-equipped RTU). It was a custom solution for Consolidated Communications in Texas. This same philosophy of customization is available for all DPS clients.
