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.

By the end of 2008, BT’s communications infrastructure will allow every home and business in the city to have access to its fiber optic network.
As an equipment provider for worldwide, national and regional radio and television facilities, Transcom Corporation, headquartered in Huntingdon Valley, Pa., has been meeting the broadcasting capability needs of stations worldwide since 1978. Transcom specializes in distributing new TV transmitters, antenna, cable, Studio Transmitter Link (STL) and audio equipment that enable television and radio stations to transmit sound and video from the studio to the antenna.
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.
Simple voicemail has evolved into complex integrated messaging platforms and the generic black handset has been replaced by a plethora of devices. Service providers can become critical partners for companies looking to ensure availability of their voice network.
