In this application, an advanced master that supports multiple data transports provides an easy transition from legacy transport to LAN.
Originally, this typical remote site is monitored by a legacy remote via serial or modem connection. In the first stage of the transition, the legacy master is replaced with a modern master that supports multiple transports. This immediately brings improved network monitoring and advanced alarm processing features to the network.
In the next stage, LAN access is gradually brought to all remote sites in the network. When LAN access arrives, site monitoring is switched over to modern remotes that support LAN transport. Because the new master natively supports both legacy and LAN transports, the switchover happens with little disruption to network monitoring.
This transition can happen as quickly or as slowly as you need. Transitioning all your sites to LAN access can happen over several budget cycles to minimize the impact on your capital expenditure budget and manpower costs for installation.
