Implementing an SNMP network alarm monitoring system can seem deceptively easy, but the truth is, developing a network monitoring system on your own is one of the riskiest things you can do. Here are some of the typical problems you might face if you don't get expert advice when you're designing your system:
1. Implementation time is drawn out: It's going to take longer than you think. Network monitoring is a highly technical subject, and you have a lot to learn if you want a successful implementation. And anytime you are trying to do something you've never done before, you are bound to make mistakes - mistakes that extend your time and your budget beyond their limits.
2. Resources are misused: If you're not fully informed about your options for mediating legacy protocols to SNMP, you may replace equipment that could have been integrated into your new system. Rushing into a systemwide replacement when you could have integrated can cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars.
3. Opportunities are missed: If you install a new network monitoring system today, you're committing your company to that system for as long as 8 to10 years. Many telecoms design what they think is a state-of-the-art monitoring system - and then find that their technology is actually a generation behind.
When you're choosing a network monitoring vendor, don't take chances. Be skeptical. Ask the hard questions. Above all, look for experience. Don't take a sales rep's word that his company can do custom development. Ask how many systems they've worked with, how many protocols they can integrate to SNMP, and check for client testimonials.

"We're not your typical sales department," says Rick Dodd, DPS Telecom's Director of Sales.
"We don't rush the client. We don't recommend solutions until we have a good understanding of the client's requirements and ultimate goal. We're design consultants."
What makes Dodd and his sales staff different is their sincere, no-nonsense commitment to putting their clients first.
Dodd's primary goal is making sure you have the right solution to meet your needs - and if that means a smaller sale, that's OK with Dodd.
"A lot of the time we propose solutions that have a smaller sales volume, if it's the right solution for the client," said Dodd.
"That goes back to the DPS philosophy of creating complete client satisfaction. We customize our solutions to make it the right fit without the client having to buy a lot of extraneous hardware and software.
"The bottom line is, if you're not 100% happy with the solution we've provided, we've done something wrong. My personal promise is that when you order from DPS, you'll get the exact solution you're looking for, or you'll get your money back," said Dodd.
The DPS Telecom sales process is a systematic guarantee of Dodd's promise. With every client, Dodd and his sales staff follow a standard procedure that's designed to safeguard the client's best interests at every step.
