When replacing your switch with a softswitch, you will lose embedded monitoring. If that was your only site monitoring, you've just lost all visibility of your valuable infrastructure. To regain what you have lost, you need to deploy a new monitoring system when you deploy your softswitch. You could theoretically keep your switch online just for its embedded monitoring, but that is a huge waste of your resources, including power and rack space. What's more, it is completely unnecessary because there are other solutions available for softswitch monitoring. Although deploying a new monitoring system may seem like a hassle, it is actually a big opportunity to start off right with an excellent solution. It is, therefore, vital to make the right choice and deploy the most effective alarm monitoring system for your network and your new softswitch.
"In speaking with clients and installers, I've heard the NetGuardian 832A RTU referred to as the 'de facto' standard in softswitch monitoring," said DPS Telecom President Eric Storm. "Real installers working with real equipment on a daily basis have told me, 'You can't find a softswitch without finding a NetGuardian next to it.' That speaks volumes about the NetGuardian's top-notch quality."
While there are many softswitch monitoring options available, you must know the difference between an effective monitoring system and one that simply won't meet your needs.
