Monitor AFC Equipment Via TL1 With T/Mon NOC
How This Application Works:
There are two master options for this solution. We have provided a technical overview as well as an application drawing for each Master Station.
Option 1 features the T/Mon SLIM. The T/Mon SLIM is the smaller of the two Master Stations, however it is capable of collecting alarms from up to 64 devices and 10,000 alarm points. Fitting into a one rack unit size, it's perfect for the networks that have little spare space.
Option 2 features the T/Mon NOC. The T/Mon NOC has the ability to monitor upwards of a million alarm points (we have not had a client reach this far yet)! It can have up to 17 simultaneous users, compared to the 5 that are alloted with the T/Mon SLIM, using 6 rack units of physical space.
In addition, we included the DTMF/Voice Interface for the T/Mon master that lets you acknowledge or silence alarms from the field, using any touch-tone/cell phone. As easy and familiar as a voice-mail system, the DTMF/Voice Interface uses recorded voice prompts to guide you through a menu of options, and you just select your choice by pressing a phone button. The T/Mon keeps track of who acknowledges the alarms over the phone.
The T/Mon SLIM is 1 RU unit that fits into any 19" or 23" rack, in any telco environment. Dual -48 VDC power inputs allow T/Mon SLIM to be powered from the same battery power as the rest of your equipment - and give you a backup power supply in case of primary power failure.
The T/Mon NOC is a rack mounted, -48V dual feed, Pentium computer that will be responsible for: Collecting, filtering, categorizing & presenting alarms, maintaining history, alphanumeric paging and e-mail notification. The T/Mon NOC will use the slide rack which can be placed into Ganado Telephone Co., Inc.'s 19" or 23" racks. This solution provides the highest level of local alarm visibility. Alarm viewing will take several forms including our embedded web browser support facility. This interface is incredibly easy to use and will provide network visibility to your staff provided they are given the access rights by your system administrator.
