If you're converting your alarm monitoring to SNMP, there's a lot you need to know that standard SNMP guidebooks don't tell you — real-world stuff, like how to make your legacy equipment work with SNMP, and getting telecom-quality network visibility from SNMP systems.

Most SNMP reference books are written for IT techs. They'll tell you everything about managing computer networks and nothing about monitoring telecom equipment and remote sites. You need a guidebook that's written for you, with fast, specific answers that will help you make SNMP monitoring work in your network.

You can download that guidebook right now. "SNMP Tutorial: The Fast Track Introduction to SNMP Alarm Monitoring" is quick — you can absorb the whole thing in less than a day — and it tells you the essential information you really need to know:

  • The nuts and bolts of SNMP: protocol format, MIB files, packet structure, and layered communication
  • How to troubleshoot IP communication problems
  • Mediating other protocols to SNMP
  • The limitations of SNMP as a telemetry protocol — and how you can overcome them
  • A quick and dirty checklist of steps you can take today to start your SNMP monitoring project.

Everything you'll read in this guidebook has been proven under real-world conditions. Every recommendation is based on what DPS Telecom engineers and technicians have learned in creating hundreds of successful SNMP monitoring installations. This information literally doesn't exist anywhere else. Download "SNMP Tutorial: The Fast Track Introduction to SNMP Alarm Monitoring" now and put this exclusive material to work for you today.
