5 helpful functions of modern RTUs

It's obvious that any "SNMP RTU" must support SNMP (at least one version of it). If that's all you look for when making a purchase decision, however, you're probably missing out on opportunities to make your network more reliable, more profitable, and easier to manage effectively. Here's a list of important functions to look for that allow an RTU to perform functions beyond simple SNMP:

An SNMP RTU that supports SMS/email notifications, SNMPv3 encryption, local protocol mediation, derived alarms, and derived controls

As you can see, a good SNMP remote can do much more than simply send out SNMP traps. Now that you have some background information, you're ready to review some real-world RTU examples.
