Reach-Through Port

The NetGuardian's reach-through serial port permits Telnet sessions to connect to the administration port of an external network component. This gives your staff the ability to assess and repair your network faster without having to be physically present at the network site. It is also cost-effective because there is no need to purchase a dedicated terminal server.

SNMP v2c Informs for robust message delivery

The NetGuardian 216T supports SNMP v2c Informs, as well as SNMP v2c and v1Traps. SNMP v2c Inform messages provide confirmed delivery of alarms. When an SNMP manager receives an Inform message, it sends a confirmation response to the SNMP agent. If the agent doesn't receive the confirmation response, it resends the Inform.

24/7 email and paging alerts

Out of the box, the NetGuardian 216T supports 24/7 email and paging (through email) reporting. Send alarms directly to maintenance technicians in the field, even when no one's in the office.

Web Interface

All DPS RTUs now come standard with web interfaces that make changing settings and configurations a snap.


Edit 216T

Edit216T allows you to create configuration files without being connected to the NetGuardian. Download the files to the NetGuardian via LAN or T1 WAN, or upload current files for backup. This saves you time when turning up new devices because you can save your default configuration and load it instantly to new devices without having to manually do any configuration.
