A Year of Challenges Shows Why Alarm Monitoring is Essential Insurance

If you want your higher-ups to really understand why network alarm monitoring is important, have them talk to any network manager who worked on the Gulf Coast in 2005. Repeatedly slammed by the fiercest hurricane season in history, the region's telecom providers faced the huge challenge of keeping their infrastructure up in the middle of disaster.

The one factor that made a difference in maintaining service was network alarm monitoring. High-quality network visibility enabled Gulf Coast carriers to pinpoint exactly where trouble was advancing and how severe it was — so that even companies with limited repair resources could keep the bulk of their networks running during the emergency.

You might not face hurricanes where you work, but you know that 2006 will bring many tough challenges your way. You can face your challenges with more confidence if you know that you have the best possible visibility of your network.

So as you're wrapping up your operations for 2005, take stock of your network and see where you might need to upgrade your monitoring. Some extra precautions this year will help guarantee that your New Year is a happy one.

P.S. DPS Telecom will be closed the week of Dec. 26-30. I hope that you, too, will be out of the office and spending time with your family. Have a great holiday, and I'll see you in 2006!
