Telecommunication and data centers are continuing to use legacy smart devices, such as power meters, fuel monitoring systems, UPSs, CRAC units, PLCs, HVAC systems, glycol loop controllers, building automation systems, automatic transfer switches, and generators, to access valuable data. However, most of these legacy smart devices lack the ability or the security to be connected to IP networks. In turn, field operation staff is required to provide power and environmental usage and performance information on a regular basis to decision-makers.
During regional power outages, it’s when resources are scarce and when power and environment usage and performance updates are available that the right decisions about backup power can be made. Having real-time visibility on legacy smart device data when making your serious decision not only enables you to be more efficient but also can help prolong end-user service until the power comes back online.
Multitel’s Modbus to SNMP protocol conversion solution bridges the gap between legacy smart devices and decision-makers by enabling simple and secure connections to IP networks. Whether you are running Modbus RTU (serial) or Modbus TCP (IP), multiple legacy smart devices can be networked together; information be easily be accessed through standard web browsers or monitored via network management software. Our solution frees field operations and network engineering from repetitive and time-consuming tasks.
