Monitoring of equipment in IRCG’s national telecom network by means of RTU32 – SNMP and global binding. IRCG needed an alarm system with the ability to send alarms from a number of remote sites to selected NOCs (Network Operations Centers). Moreover, the respective sites needed to be able to exchange information. STRATON Global Binding has made this possible; a simple, yet powerful event-based communication set-up distributes control and alarm information from any site to any site.
Brodersen’s solution was chosen by IRCG in that RTU32 – as one of the few units on the market – supports SNMP and manages simple configurable distribution of alarm and control functions via network. Also, Brodersen was able to offer support as to pre-configuration of modules and provide online support for Sigma Wireless, in this way securing reduced time of development, installation and commissioning. Online support was offered as well under the final System Acceptance Test during which adjustments were required.
