One of T/Mon's most powerful tools is the ASCII Processor Software Module. The ASCII Processor can parse and extract actionable alarm data from any ASCII text source.
With ASCII processing, you can monitor nearly any kind of network equipment: channel banks, PBXs, SONET equipment, digital switches, logging devices, RTUs, routing platforms, DSUs, CSUs, NIUs - even email, FTP and HTTP servers.
As long as a device as some kind of ASCII output - an admin, craft, logger or printer port - T/Mon can monitor it.
T/Mon alarms are highly detailed - each alarm is databased with its exact location, including the site, the device, and a plain English description of the alarm. Every alarm can be set to one of four severity levels: Critical, Major, Minor and Status. And each alarm has an accurate date-time stamp.
With T/Mon, you'll know exactly when an alarm happened, where it happened, and what the problem is. Before your technicians get in the truck, they'll know what to do to resolve the problem and what tools and supplies to bring to the remote site.
T/Mon's detailed alarm notifications will enable you to monitor proactively, not reactively. You'll find problems before they can cause equipment damage or a service outage. You'll be able to minimize serious damage to your equipment; speed repairs and reduce service restoration times; and reduce the cost of maintaining your network.
The T/Mon interface includes two convenient features to help you automatically coordinate service restoration efforts - even after hours, and even if your staff doesn't have specialized training:
