Some network managers don't monitor small sites like remote huts, collocation racks or enclosed cabinets. Some don't even monitor large sites if they have fewer than 32 alarm points.
It's a major mistake to not monitor small sites. Problems can happen anywhere. Every blind spot in your network visibility, no matter how small, is a place where you won't know about problems until equipment finally fails.
With the density of modern equipment, site size is often a poor indicator of outage impact. Even small-scale network outages can erode your revenue. Recurring equipment failures at small sites can eat away your repair and equipment budgets.
Proactive companies are now actively looking to monitor small sites to avoid these problems.
Think about your smaller sites and ask yourself: Can I afford expensive damage to this equipment? Will my network stay up if this site shuts down?
NetGuardian 216: the cost-effective solution to monitor small sites
So why do network managers run the risks of not monitoring their smaller sites? Because they think they can't monitor small sites cost-effectively.
They think that network monitoring always means high capacity RTUs, dedicated lines, and man-hours spent on configuration and databasing.
The NetGuardian 216 makes that kind of thinking obsolete. With 16 discretes, 2 analogs, 2 controls and 1 reach-through port , the NetGuardian 216 is exactly the right capacity to monitor small sites. You get the alarm capability you need without spending a fortune on alarm capacity you won't use.
Light capacity doesn't mean light on features or on quality. The NetGuardian 216 is a scaled-down version of our popular NetGuardian 832A, and includes features you'd usually find only on complex, high capacity remotes.
The NetGuardian is easy to install and configure, making it simple to add network monitoring capability anywhere in your network:
