Consolidate Isolated Network Systems with an Integrated Remote Alarm System

Three ways to prevent isolated systems from splitting up your visibility:

  • When adding new primary network equipment, don't let planning for a remote alarm system become an afterthought. Your tendency will be to select the immediately available solution, rather than considering how well it will integrate with your existing system.
  • Avoid partial integration solutions. You don't want a system that can just handle its proprietary protocol and one other standard protocol, be sure that your solution supports a wide array of monitoring protocols and is flexible enough to support more when needed.
  • Don't rely solely on equipment-specific proprietary monitoring systems. It's better to use them to drill down for equipment details after your integrated remote alarm system notifies you of a problem.

Bring your isolated systems together with the TMon multiprotocol platform

In the below application, two isolated systems are joined with a single multiprotocol system. Your entire network is monitored from a single screen, creating a uniform and integrated remote alarm system that provides best-quality visibility of your entire network.

And you can achieve this level of integration just by replacing the masters - the TMon integrated remote alarm system supports both isolated systems. Your current remotes stay in place, and you don't have to do a forklift swap out of embedded equipment.

Using an integrated remote alarm system for all your monitoring applications will:

  • Create substantial savings in initial expenditure, operational, and maintenance costs.
  • Save your investment in legacy remote systems by extending their working life.
  • Provide advanced features like after-hours monitoring and automatic notifications at low cost.
  • Leverage your existing monitoring system to provide better monitoring now and an upgrade path for the future.
  • Spread equipment upgrade costs over several budget cycles, since both your current systems and new monitoring equipment are supported by the multiprotocol platform.

You're more likely to lose track of critical alarms using isolated network systems

Whether you need to integrate another company's network systems or your own set of isolated systems, the net result can be the same: different systems, monitoring different parts of your network, and none of these systems will work together.

If you have to work with multiple network monitoring systems, you already know all the headaches that are involved:

  • You don't have one screen that clearly indicates the total health of your network.
  • Your staff has to monitor multiple screens to view the entire network, distracting their attention and increasing the chances that a serious threat will go undetected.
  • You can't automatically correlate and process alarm data from your entire network.
  • Your training, maintenance, and repair costs are doubled, tripled or more.
