Telemetry Monitoring System: The 7 Must Have Features

Leaving your network, infrastructure, energy grid, remote site, or other IT environment unmonitored puts you at risk for a critical outage - leaving you with giant repair bills, a throng of angry customers, and one massive headache. Don't let this happen to you - especially when simple solutions exist to avoid these preventable problems.

Industries that telemetry monitoring systems are capable of monitoring
Examples of industries where telemetry network monitoring is essential. Don't let your company take the unnecessary risk of going unmonitored.

Here are the 7 must have features of any telemetry monitoring system you use to get control over your network:

  1. Ultra-stable platform operating on rugged industrial-grade hardware - Because the best telemetry monitoring system is nothing without guaranteed reliability. Your monitoring system should be built to withstand every challenge, so you're never left in the dark about your network.
  2. High alarm capacity - You can't let low quality hardware limit the potential of your system. You need high-quality monitoring systems that give you an abundance of alarms - so you're not limited on what you can and cannot do.
  3. Multiple sensor support - There isn't one universal sensor that solves every problem. Don't let your remote sensor limit what you want to do. Your telemetry monitoring system should support both discrete and analog sensors. Discrete sensors provide you with "on/off" measurements - which are good for measuring things like power to a remote site or power to your server room. Analog sensors output at a continuous rate, giving you 24/7 access to the precise status of your sensor. Analog sensors work best for measuring temperature in a data center or the water flow through part of your infrastructure. Don't let poor sensor support restrict your network, so give yourself the utility you need.
  4. Multiple alert support - You can't predict when the next emergency is going to happen, but you at least can have the power of knowing you'll be alerted when it does. A telemetry monitoring system that only gives you one alert method doesn't fully protect you. You need to have access to multiple alert methods so you're always in the loop - whether you're in the office or at home.
  5. Quality backup options - It's simply too risky to bank all of your security and monitoring on a single LAN line. A quality monitoring device will provide you with at least one backup option - ideally it should support multiple methods (for example dial-up or wireless in addition to your LAN line). Having the right backup plan gives you the best reliability, and the best peace of mind.
  6. Support for customization - Why limit yourself to only having access to a single standard device? No two customers are the same so you should have the support to customize your telemetry monitoring system - so it specifically fits your needs.
  7. First class tech support - No telemetry monitoring system is complete without ongoing support. Don't settle for anything less than top-tier 7x24 tech support. The uptime of your network is a 24/7 job, and you should always have the right support to back you up. Don't settle for anything less.

What are my options for effective telemetry monitoring systems?
You're now informed on exactly what you need. Your network, infrastructure, or remote site can't afford to be left unmonitored. You're prepared to take the first step in protecting the value of your business.

Many solutions fail because they don't have the 7 necessary features. Without these features, a telemetry monitoring system is prone to disappoint. Protecting your network is serious and you need the most serious solutions.

Just imagine how much easier your job would be if you didn't have to worry about critical outages crippling your network? Think the satisfaction of your customers knowing they don't have to worry about downtime and being cut off from your services. Not to mention all of the saved resources and labor time. What is that worth to you? Just preventing one outage would pay for the best telemetry monitoring system several times over.
