Innovative approach allows users to leverage existing infrastructure while increasing alarm network reliability and reducing operating costs.

Dantel, Inc. the leader in network surveillance and management systems, announced today the availability of its E2A over IP solution to seamlessly convert existing E2A alarm equipment from analog to TCP/IP networks.

"Dantel recognizes that service providers face a challenge with tight capital and limited personnel to update alarm networks," said Dave Lauger, director of business development for Dantel, Inc. "To address these issues, Dantel has developed an E2A/IP solution to leverage investments in existing alarm systems. This solution allows service providers to easily transition from legacy analog networks, which are expensive to operate and maintain, to TCP/IP networks."

Dantel's innovative approach will increase alarm network reliability while reducing operating costs. Existing E2A equipment, Dantel or other types, may be easily and quickly adapted to IP transport using two Dantel E2A/IP components. In addition, the company's solution does not poll the equipment at remote sites, since polling may not always synchronize alarm events with the host resulting in errors and missed alarm notification. Dantel's approach ensures the highest level of communication reliability.

Dantel's design consists of an E2A subassembly at remote sites and the Dantel WebMon Matrix at the host site. This combination delivers a clean and reliable conversion process that has been extensively tested with NMA. Further, no configuration changes are required at the host.

"At remote sites the E2A/IP subassembly directly replaces an existing analog modem, therefore no additional relay rack space is required. The existing alarm shelf can be IP ready within a matter of minutes," added Lauger.

WebMon Matrix
The WebMon Matrix modular construction allows end users to customize their remote monitoring with a blend of discrete, analog, and event based intelligent auto control functions for service assurance. Applications for the Matrix include but are not limited to Central Offices, Switch Sites, Cellular or WiFi Sites, and Head Ends.

The Matrix may be populated with up to six modules. Modules may include discrete inputs, 8, 16 or 32 per card; analog inputs 8 per card; discrete outputs 5, 8, or 10 per card; and terminal server ports 4 per card. Optional features include Ethernet Switch, fiber interface, and cellular modem.

The WebMon detects events, converting and reporting the information in various protocols including SNMP v1, v2c and v3 traps and v2c informs, TL1, ASCII and DCPF, and interfaces to HP Open View, IBM Tivoli Net Cool®, CA SPECTRUM or Dantel's VisionMasterâ„¢ or VisionMaster CS (Client Server) Network Management System.
