The Right Mediation Device is Essential to a Scalable Network
Make sure your mediation device supports these key functions:
- Alarm collection and device management: Don't settle for a limited mediation device. Get multiprotocol support for every network alarm monitoring device in your network, plus discrete alarms, analog alarms, ping alarms, and redundant path reporting.
- Alarm presentation and notification: Send detailed alarm descriptions and correction instructions to NOC and field techs via pager notifications and web interfaces.
- Alarm sorting and analysis: Make sense of alarm cascades with automatic intelligent alarm sorting, filtering, processing, and trend analysis.

"Every mediation device I make is backed by my no-risk, money-back guarantee. If you buy my equipment and you're not satisfied for any reason during the first 30 days, simply return it for a full refund. If my product doesn't solve your problem, I don't want you to have it."
