Incompatible Network Monitoring Systems Waste Time, Effort, and Money

Wave after wave of consolidations and mergers have passed through the telecom industry in the last few years. For technical managers, the merger mania has created a constant need to integrate incompatible network monitoring systems.

When two telecoms merge, they seldom have identical, or even compatible, network monitoring systems. It falls on technical staff to somehow create a coherent whole of the two systems.

Even if your company hasn't merged with another, you may still have integration issues. You may be responsible for equipment that was in place long before you reached your current position. At some companies, different generations of monitoring equipment have simply accumulated, layer upon layer, without any integration.

Whether you need to integrate another company's network or your own, the net result is the same: you have two or more different systems, monitoring different parts of your network, and none of these systems work together.

If you have to work with multiple network monitoring systems, you already know all the headaches that are involved:

  • You don't have one screen that clearly indicates the total health of your network.
  • You staff has to monitor two or more screens to view the whole network, distracting their attention and increasing the chances that a serious threat will go undetected.
  • You can't automatically correlate and process alarm data from your entire network.
  • Your training costs are doubled.
  • Your maintenance and repair costs are doubled.

Your Incompatible Systems Can Work Together

You can bring your incompatible systems together with an advanced network management system that supports multiple protocols.

In this application, two aging, failing legacy masters are replaced with a single multiprotocol system. Your entire network is monitored from a single screen, creating a uniform platform that provides best-quality visibility of your entire network.

And you can achieve this level of integration just by replacing the masters. The new integrated master supports both legacy systems. Your legacy remotes stay in place, and you don't have to do a forklift swap out of embedded equipment.

System Integration Creates Cost Savings

Integrating your network monitoring on a single platform saves money:

Using an integrated platform for all your monitoring applications will:

  • Create substantial savings in initial expenditure, operational, and maintenance costs.
  • Save your investment in legacy remotes.
  • Extend the useful working life of your legacy remotes.
  • Provide advanced features like after-hours monitoring and automatic notifications at low cost.
  • Leverage your existing monitoring system to provide better monitoring now and an upgrade path for the future.
  • Spread equipment upgrade costs over several budget cycles, since both legacy systems and new monitoring equipment is supported by the multiprotocol platform.
