"Are You Trusting Embedded
Alarm Systems to Monitor Your Sites?"
|Bob Berry, President & CEO
4 Reasons Why Depending on Scan Points Can Be Risky
At the last Factory Training Event, a client asked: Why do I need
a network alarm monitoring system anyway? All my equipment has embedded
alarm systems. Isn't that enough? It's a fair question, but it's
not a question of whether it's enough. It's the difference
between being proactive and reactive. The difference between
monitoring and the appearance of monitoring. Here's why.
Too Many Screens:
You Can't Leave the Console:
Single Point of Failure:
One-Threshold Environmental Monitoring:
If you rely solely on embedded alarms, you'll have blind spots
in your network visibility that can prevent you from quickly detecting
and repairing network problems. So what's the role of the embedded
or proprietary alarm system? It's better to use them to drill down
for equipment details after your advanced, integrated
monitoring system notifies you of a problem. High quality alarm
monitoring helps you avoid network outages, prevent equipment damage,
and reduce repair costs. In the long run, getting the right network
monitoring system is not only better, it's cheaper.
