Businesses of all sizes have to manage an increasing diversity of remote users and devices. The task ranges from simply keeping systems running to ensuring security, compliance and the achievement of environmental goals. Under this sort of pressure, IT managers and managed service providers, to which the task is often outsourced, must have flexible access to powerful tools and an ability to share the data those tools rely on.

Many IT Managers will be familiar with the ‘disk or die’ ultimatums that a disgruntled system can issue. If the system demands feeding and threatens to shut down if it doesn’t get more disk to chew, it’s time to address the issue of disk once and for all. The expense of using disk to accommodate problems in the hope of buying extra investigation time is a quick fix that few organizations can sustain.
One of the greatest challenges to any advanced wireless operation is the maintenance of continuous and economical service. Today’s networks have evolved into business-critical services that organizations rely upon every day. However, unplanned remote site downtime due to equipment and power failure, and adverse environmental conditions can severely impair network service.
Today’s service providers face more pressure than ever to keep remote equipment up and running as customers continue to demand higher levels of reliable service while keeping costs competitive. Thus, there is a growing need for remote site management solutions that can help service providers monitor, access and control telecom equipment located at customer sites.
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is an industry standard network management protocol for managing wide area and local area networks. It is easy to use, cost-effective, and is built into most networking devices. One of SNMP’s best assets is its use of in-band management, yet, this is also its biggest weakness.
The proliferation of remote and unmanned facilities is exposing many enterprises to devastating events. The need is to not only detect a threatening condition, but to also get a precise message to the person who is prepared to do something about it.
More than ever before, IT managers need to secure equipment and facilities against a variety of intrusive conditions that could cripple critical operations, resulting in system malfunctions, loss of data or intellectual property, damage to mission critical hardware or even theft of valuable physical assets. Such conditions often include environmental events, failure of air conditioning systems, power outages, and untoward human actions.
Telecom operations typically have sophisticated network and systems management (NSM) software in place to monitor their servers, workstations and routers. Such systems often utilize Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) as a means of transmitting and receiving network monitoring information. Great - if you run only modern equipment.
The use of pollable remote access units enable integration of phone systems with telecommunications management, plus system-wide access, monitoring and alarm notification that includes unmanned remote sites. Few telephone networks connect a user base that is involved in such a multitude of vital services as local government.

In the high-stakes battle of Internet providers, WiMAX represents the latest up-and-comer to challenge DSL and cable technologies. This new wireless technology is gaining attention for its ability to provide high-speed, high-throughput broadband connections over distances of up to 30 miles instead of a few hundred feet. Exhibiting a surprising amount of utility, WiMAX can be used for a number of different applications.
Budgets are tight in today's business environment. You may be asked to do more with less. Take a look through your equipment room. You may have several devices that work just fine, but they are not visible via your network management system (NMS).
Organizations today depend upon their networks to increase productivity and reduce network infrastructure and maintenance costs. Accordingly, these networks must be secure and perform reliably in order to accommodate geographically dispersed users. Unplanned remote site downtime due to equipment failure or adverse environmental conditions can severely impair network service.
