Are you monitoring the mission-critical devices in your network? What happens if a piece of equipment goes down at one of your sites? Does your whole network come to a screeching halt? Or is service disrupted to your customers?
A network outage can be a disastrous affair. For starters, it's expensive - every minute your network costs you money - especially if you violate your SLA and incur hefty penalties. Real-time monitoring can help you maintain your network uptime - saving you thousands upon thousands of dollars.
Second, the productivity of your team drops, because instead of working they're busy fixing your network. The outage could disrupt service to your customers too - which will leave you with throngs of angry users wondering why their provider's service isn't reliable.
You don't have to suffer from these headaches...

Instead of a distant remote sites being blind spots in your network, you'll now have visibility over these locations. This means you'll know when there's a problem with your equipment, so you can quickly respond and prevent serious problems.
