What are Telemetry Units?

Telemetry units are devices that remotely monitor critical network equipment and conditions. These units provide better visibility over your entire network by monitoring important equipment, data transports, and environmental conditions. Proactive network monitoring is an easy way to prevent many kinds of outages from affecting service to your customers.

These telemetry units are commonly referred to as RTUs (remote telemetry units) and are the foundation for a capable and effective remote monitoring system. These units are responsible for collecting alarms from your sites to send you notifications that help prevent downtime.
