T/Mon SLIM, T/Mon NOC alarm collection
Local and Central Network Visibility: T/Mon SLIM collects alarm data from your remote sites and provides local visibility via Web, pager and email; T/Mon NOC collects alarms from multiple T/Mon SLIMs for centralized alarm management.

Why Do You Need T/Mon SLIM?

If you manage a small network, or a local/regional section of a large network, you probably don't have immediate, real-time access to all the alarms you need to see - even when they're alarms from your own office and remote sites.

Being dependent on a central corporate NOC means you don't always get timely notification of alarms as they happen. And if you work for a small company, the cost barriers to setting up a 24/7 manned NOC can prevent you from having any alarm visibility at all.

Either way, not having real-time monitoring increases service restoration times and maintenance costs.

T/Mon SLIM changes all that. T/Mon SLIM puts visibility and control of your alarms directly into your hands, giving you the power to proactively manage the equipment and remote sites you're responsible for.
