Benefits Of SNMP Legacy Integration

BENEFIT #2: SNMP-legacy integration is the safe way to migrate from a failing legacy system

In a failing legacy monitoring system, the danger usually isn't the remotes - it's the master. The master is a single point of failure, and it has a lot of parts that can go wrong: software that can crash, hard drives that can fail, a database you have to maintain (or perhaps restore from scratch after a hard drive failure). Your legacy master's technology is so old and slow - it's practically a relic. You might be running an impaired system with no spares and no safety net.

Controlled Migration
T/Mon NOC Immediately replace your legacy master

If your legacy master is going on the fritz, consider that you can immediately replace it with a T/Mon without moving a single remote unit. With one simple, cost-effective installation, you've immediately brought your network monitoring back from the brink of failure.

This is a good reason why you should think about integration NOW. Even if your legacy master is functioning adequately, if it's more than 7 years old it's getting close to its retirement date. If its more than 12 years old, you are operating on borrowed time.

It's better and cheaper to integrate BEFORE you have a catastrophic failure. After all, a monitoring system can't fulfill its fundamental purpose of preventing costly outages if it is failing or unreliable itself.

BENEFIT #3: SNMP-legacy integration enhances the valuable features of your legacy equipment

You've probably built your alarm-handling procedures around the capabilities of your existing monitoring equipment. To correct alarms quickly and properly, you need a standing alarm list, change of state alarms, multi-user web access, and the rest of the 7 essential telemetry functions we talked about - all things that basic SNMP managers can't provide.

Naturally, you might be concerned about an "upgrade" that seems like it's going to reduce your capabilities. Nothing could be further from the truth. If anything, integration is better since you now have SNMP visibility of equipment that's already in your network, which your technicians are already trained on.

Integrating your legacy systems to your SNMP manager with T/Mon retains the full functionality of your legacy equipment, so you get all the advantages of both.


Call me now and see what the T/Mon Remote Monitoring System can do for you

In this course, I've shown you how SNMP-legacy integration works and what it can do for you. Now let me explain why you should let me help you integrate your SNMP and legacy systems.

First, you don't want to try to develop an integration solution by yourself. It's expensive, it takes a long time, and it's risky. If you haven't developed a protocol mediation solution before, it's complex and there are things you can miss. Developing a solution that doesn't work in-house is a lot more expensive than outside development.

Second, when you're deciding on a vendor to develop your integration solution, you want to choose the one with the most experience. DPS Telecom has a proven track record in custom development, protocol mediation and legacy support.

DPS has products and solutions that you can look at today that will take care of your SNMP-legacy integration needs. You won't be taking any risks - if I ever sell you something that doesn't solve your problems 100%, you can return it for a full refund.

If this sounds interesting to you - if SNMP-legacy integration will solve your network monitoring problems - then act now by calling me at 1-800-693-0351 to talk to one of my application engineers.

There's no obligation to buy, and no high-pressure salesman. You'll just get more information, and I'll answer any of your questions.

I wish you the best of success with your network monitoring!
