How Do I Know T/Mon Works?

T/Mon NOC is not a new or untested product. T/Mon units have been in the field for years, successfully performing SNMP mediation tasks for clients who need stable, bulletproof monitoring to support their mission-critical operations.

What do clients who use DPS protocol mediation solutions say?

"I was looking for a way to integrate our local ILEC region into HP OpenView without a major network change. T/Mon's SNMP responder was the answer. The migration will allow us not only to monitor all alarms in one spot but also build extensive collection reports of our whole network."
Todd Matherne, EATEL

"DPS Telecom gave us a reliable way of accessing a variety of equipment, regardless of the brand or provider. We now have a common interface for our existing system."
Harold Moses, KMC Telecom

"DPS told us we didn't have to pay if it didn't work. It works and it's sweet."
Glenn Lippincott, Southern Company

"It's hard to find companies with the intelligence and aptitude to meet the
customer's exact needs, and I believe that is what DPS is all about."
Lee Wells, Pathnet

Price is Only the First Part of Cost Justification - Make Sure Your Vendor Offers Guaranteed Results

Chief Executive Officer DPS Telecom

In my experience, clients who think hard about cost justification have a more important concern than just price. They want to make sure that they're not spending their company's money on a system that doesn't work as advertised.

That's smart. You have to be careful when working with equipment vendors, especially on protocol mediation projects. Most vendors can't support all your legacy equipment, and they don't have the development capabilities to make integration work.

Some vendors will charge you large NRE (non-refundable engineering) fees up front for custom work, and give no guarantee that the resulting product will meet your performance requirements.

Personally, I think that's a lousy way to do business. I give all my clients a 30-day guarantee: If my product doesn't completely satisfy you, return it for a full refund. If I can't give you a solution, I don't want your money. If I'm doing custom work for you, I don't expect you to pay for it until I've proven that it works to your satisfaction.

Very few vendors will make that guarantee. But you need to demand the best level of service from your vendor to ensure that your SNMP implementation is 100% successful.
