How This White Paper Will Help You

Many network managers are upgrading their alarm monitoring to modern SNMP systems - but many more managers are stuck with their older systems, because it's financially impossible to replace them.

There is a way out. Your older equipment can be integrated with a new SNMP-based system. You can have modern capabilities without replacing your old equipment, greatly reducing the costs of upgrading.

This white paper is a fast guide to the facts about SNMP-legacy integration. It will show you exactly how you can integrate your older systems to SNMP - without sacrificing functionality or wasting money.

Chapter 1: Overcoming the Three Most Common Barriers to Integration

If you're responsible for remote alarm monitoring of incompatible equipment at multiple remote sites, T/Mon NOC can help you.

You'll probably always have legacy equipment, but that doesn't mean you can't take advantage of the latest technologies AND continue to get the full value of your legacy gear.

Legacy Remotes
You can expand your monitoring capacities
AND save your investment in legacy gear

The answer is SNMP-legacy integration. The most important thing you need to know about integration is that it works:

  • You can integrate all your legacy equipment, no matter what its protocol or manufacturer, under an SNMP-based umbrella system.
  • Your legacy equipment and your SNMP manager can work together seamlessly, without compromising on functionality.
  • SNMP legacy integration is the most practical, hassle-free way to implement SNMP-based monitoring in any network. Integration will save you more time, money, and trouble than any other implementation strategy - if you do it right.

Yes, there are some barriers to integrating your legacy equipment, but those barriers can be overcome, and I'm going to show you how.

What you're going to get out of this white paper is some solid background on the technologies that make SNMP-legacy integration work. This is the background you need to make informed decisions about your SNMP implementation.

To begin, let's show you how you can overcome three of the most common barriers to SNMP-legacy integration. Here are some actual problems and questions submitted by network managers.
