The Auto-Databasing ASCII software module gives T/Mon the ability to monitor any equipment that uses ASCII to report alarm or status events.

What is ASCII?
ASCII is plain, readable English text. If you can read an alarm message that comes directly from a device via a printer or dumb terminal, then that device is considered an ASCII device. Unlike most other communication protocols, which are dedicated to work over a narrow set of restrictions, ASCII itself has no such limitation. Messages can come in many different formats, lengths, and syntaxes. Some devices may have cryptic alpha/numeric sequences and others might resemble a form or a columnar report.

Common types of equipment that often use ASCII are:
CHANNEL BANKS, PBXs, SONNET, TL1, DIGITAL SWITCHES, LOGGING DEVICES, REMOTE ALARM EQUIPMENT (RTUs), ROUTING PLATFORMS, COMPUTERS, NETWORK ELEMENTS, DSUs, CSUs & NIUs

The T/Mon ASCII Interrogator is a rules-based system that works with virtually any equipment.

"With ASCII, we got a very detailed alarm within seconds, showing which fiber ports had lost their connection. So there wasn't any doubt what was happening."

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.

Send me a quick online message about what you're trying to accomplish. I'll work with you to build a custom PDF application diagram that's a perfect fit for your network.


Make an Informed Decision


Your network isn't off-the-shelf.

Your monitoring system shouldn't be, either.
