Wireless Alarm Monitoring: How to Protect your Network

Have you ever had the horrible experience of dealing with a critical outage on your network? Maybe you've heard stories about a company losing thousands of dollars in labor time, lost customers, equipment damage, and wasted effort...all because they weren't prepared for a network emergency. Or maybe you're one of the lucky ones who haven't faced this frustrating problem - and you want to keep it that way.

Either way, it's clear that the security of your network can't be undervalued. By not monitoring your server room, data center, infrastructure, and remote sites you're exposing yourself to unnecessary risks. Arming yourself with the right technology and the right system can give you the upper hand the next time you're faced with a network emergency.

Don't worry because you have plenty of options to protect yourself against a network emergency. All monitoring solutions aren't created equal, though. Here are some key features to look for when deciding on a wireless alarm monitoring system.

  • Wireless alert technology - you need your alarm monitoring system to be versatile. This means giving you multiple tools to keep you informed on the status of your network. Your alarm technology should be able to provide you with alerts via your cell phone with voice calls or email alerts - so even when you're out of the office you're not in the dark.
  • Backup reporting path - using a monitoring system that has both wireless (GSM/CDMA) and LAN connectivity protects you against disruptions - if the LAN goes down the wireless will still send alerts - exactly when you need your remote terminal unit (RTU) the most.
  • Hardware and Software Durability - only accept monitoring solutions that are built on industrial-grade hardware on ultra-stable software platforms. What's the point of implementing your wireless alarm monitoring system if isn't durable?
  • 7x24 tech support - when it comes to ensuring the smooth operation of your system you can't afford not to have 24/7 tech support.

Having the knowledge about what makes a wireless alarm monitoring system effective is just the first step.

How do I get started wirelessly monitoring my network?
You now realize the risk of not fully protecting your network (or worse not protecting it at all) is a risk you can't afford to take. Every minute you don't have your network monitored increases the chance you will face a critical outage - leaving you with a throng of disgruntled customers and some hefty repair bills.

Protecting your network is exactly like a wise investment: You invest a little upfront and sit back and reap the benefits of your savvy decision.
