Receiving detailed notifications from your network monitoring system is your first line of defense - you can't prevent a critical network outage without the right information.
Your monitoring system isn't complete without the capability to send detailed and actionable notifications. Vague and unintelligible alerts won't help you prevent network problems - meaningful notifications will. You'll send the right person with the right tools to the right location.
In order to get the most out of your notifications, ask yourself these three questions:
You also need notifications that are capable of reaching you no matter where you are or the time of day. 24/7 notifications could be the difference between an outage and network uptime. Look for a monitoring device that's capable of giving you this flexibility via email, SNMP traps to a master, pages, or voice dial-outs to your phone.
With better notifications, you'll enjoy economic benefits as well as better work logistic coverage. Better notifications lead to better awareness, which means you can respond faster to network problems. You'll be able to improve service reliability and avoid preventable outages - which will save you in the long-run.
At DPS, there is a perfect RTU for you with the notification method you need. Also, you can find accessories to add additional notification methods you need to your existing gear. If you want to add voice out to your NetGuardians, for example, you can use the SiteDialer accessory. Call DPS to learn more about the SiteDialer and other notification accessories.
NetGuardian RTUs and T/Mon master stations will be able to send you notifications directly. If you have just a handful of sites to monitor, then an RTU can send notifications directly to you. If your network is larger, then you can have a T/Mon master station send you notifications. T/Mon users enjoy several benefits, like centralized network monitoring, on-call scheduling for the entire network, and better alerts with grouped and derived alarms.
If you're ready to start receiving quality alerts from your network devices call us at 1-800-693-0351 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
