Wide Area Network (WAN) Remote Telemetry Units (RTUs)

Related Topics:

Remote Telemetry Units (RTUs) designed to interface directly with Wide Area Network transport create new possibilities for Remote Alarm Monitoring and Control Systems. Unlike other remotes that require LAN or dial-up access, a WAN RTU does not require any extra equipment to provide monitoring and control capabilties at outside-plant sites. This added functionality provides incredible new freedom when trying to gain crucial visibility of remote network sites for complete network awareness.

Here, a WAN RTU is used to monitor a site outside of the existing LAN infrastructure.

Remote Telemetry Units (RTUs) that support direct WAN connectivity and eliminate the need for additional transport converters are changing this landscape. These versatile RTUs give you visibility to sites connected only to your wide area network. Some include workgroup switches to provide LAN connections for other remote site devices.

The NetGuardian 216T by DPS Telecom is one such RTU that has the ability to interface directly with your WAN. What sets the NetGuardian apart, is its capability to remotely monitor additional devices simultaneously.This remote is a T1 and Ethernet-based remote with a wide temperature range and support for SNMP & DCPx reporting protocols, as well as standard link protocols Frame Relay/T1 and PPP/T1. And because the NetGuardian 216T has an integrated 7-port switch, you can bring LAN to 7 other external devices at the site without Ethernet and without purchasing a separate T1 router. The NetGuardian 216T is 1 rack unit and supports 16 "software reversible" discrete alarms to connect both N/O and N/C alarm wiring. The NetGuardian 216T comes equipped 6 analog inputs, D-Wire, and a 1-port terminal server so you can remotely access a serial device using Telnet.
