How Internet of Things (IoT) can improve your network monitoring

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to make our world much more convenient. Ordinary devices are increasingly IP-enabled. Houses, phones, cars, refrigerators, and more are all connected, allowing you to remotely start your car, turn on the lights in your home, and see what's in the fridge while you're shopping.

IoT network
This diagram is one example of a network of IP enabled devices. These "smart" devices are all connected and work together to automate and manage other equipment.

But the IoT concept reaches beyond just our personal lives and has practical applications in telco-grade networks. Take remote monitoring systems, for example. Although many elements of IoT (constant connectivity, many interconnected devices) have been a core part of remote monitoring in telecom for decades, IOT offers new capabilities to make your job easier.

The transition to IP networks has largely occurred. Remaining legacy connections like serial and POTS modems are increasingly rare. So, what are the next big IoT developments for network monitoring?

Next steps for IoT in Telecom:

The master station helps to give an over all view of the health of the network. Use it to control devices, sensors, and even building access, all while recording data and analytics.

What to look for in a business-grade IoT system:

Ways IoT can improve your monitoring:

IoT is a new frontier, but the underlying tech and concepts are not new. Choose a company with a history. IoT buzz has created a lot of startups who probably mean well, but they're just not experienced. Choose someone who can point to a history of success with remote sensing and remote management, etc.

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.

Make an Informed Decision

Your network isn't off-the-shelf.

Your monitoring system shouldn't be, either.
