The NetGuardian-Q8 supports up to 8 alarms standard (10 alarms with available order option) that are brought in through the 50-pin connector on the rear of the unit. The primary function of the NetGuardian-Q8 is to collect these alarms and convert them to SNMP. Because the unit has individual LEDs for each alarm point as well, you get the added bonus of local alarm monitoring on the rear of the radio.

The voltage that powers the unit also comes through the 50-pin connector and is protected by its own fuse. This way you will have alarm monitoring as long as the radio is powered.

Match this with an Ethernet connection for Web and Telnet access and a craft port for quick and easy diagnostics and monitoring, and you've got huge monitoring power in a very small package.
