A field-tested, proven SNMP/TL1 alarm mediation solution

T/Mon NOC mediates 25 different protocols to SNMP
T/Mon NOC mediates 25 different protocols to SNMP or TL1 ... and gives you unified alarm monitoring visibility of your entire network.

My company, DPS Telecom, manufactures T/Mon NOC, which can serve as an alarm master for your entire network or as a general protocol mediation solution.

T/Mon NOC can mediate alarms in 25 different protocols to SNMP ... and it can mediate alarms to other protocols, as well, like ASCII, DCP, E2A, TABS, TBOS and TL1.

T/Mon can do all this because of the power of its internal database. Remember how I said that the database makes protocol mediation possible? Well, T/Mon has one common database for all alarms. All alarms that T/Mon receives, whatever their source, are immediately written to one common format.

Once an alarm is in the T/Mon database, it's immediately convertible to SNMP or any other of T/Mon's 14 output protocols.

There's no simpler way to ensure that your equipment is SNMP-compatible. You don't have to hunt for the right MIBs. You don't have to worry about adapting your non-SNMP equipment on your own.

If your equipment is supported by T/Mon NOC, it will work with your SNMP manager. It's as simple as that.

What will T/Mon protocol mediation do for you?

  • With support for 25 protocols and hundreds of different devices, T/Mon will support all the monitored equipment in your network. (To get an idea of what T/Mon can do, see the "Partial list of protocols and devices supported by T/Mon NOC.")
  • T/Mon provides a single, one-screen view of all your monitored equipment. T/Mon will tell you 100% for certain whether anything has gone wrong with any of your monitored equipment, so you can be absolutely sure there are no secret problems anywhere in your network.
  • You can forward alarm output to multiple targets, so if you need to, you can monitor a large network of diverse devices with T/Mon, and forward all the alarms to several SNMP managers, a TL1-based OSS center, and an ASCII recorder all at once.
  • You can filter alarms for the needs of different users. You can select which alarms are forwarded to your SNMP manager, which alarms can be viewed locally on the T/Mon NOC console, and which alarms are just logged to a history file for recording and later analysis.
  • At every level of your organization, people can see the information they want without being bombarded with nuisance alarms.
  • T/Mon doesn't just support legacy protocols - it also supports legacy transports like dial-up, RS-232, RS-422/485, 202 modem, FSK modem and PSK modem.

    Getting a LAN connection to distant remote sites can be the biggest challenge to implementing SNMP. T/Mon eliminates that problem completely. Equipment and remote sites that don't support IP transport can be effortlessly integrated to your SNMP manager.

Actually, this list just scratches the surface of T/Mon NOC's capabilities. For more information about what T/Mon NOC can do for you, see the T/Mon NOC Product Data Sheet.
