Remote Network Device Health Monitoring (NMS): Manual & Software-Based Remote Reset with AMG Systems

Matt Golueke April 15, 2024 12:54 PM


Imagine you're in charge of keeping a bunch of digital billboards across a city up and running. These billboards are like the remote devices network engineers have to deal with. In the video below, Tom Exley and Joe Barnhart discuss and demonstrate the ability to remotely reset network devices and a camera manually or by using Network Management Software (NMS) >>


Now, think of these challenges:

  1. Visibility: Trying to keep an eye on all these billboards is like trying to watch every corner of the city at once. If one billboard goes dark or starts showing the wrong ad, you'd want to know immediately, but you can't be everywhere at once. This is similar to how network engineers struggle to keep track of the health and performance of remote devices.

  2. Remote Control: Suppose you do find out a billboard is malfunctioning. The next challenge is, how do you fix it? If the billboard is across town, you can't just snap your fingers and be there. This is would mean you would have to send a technician out in a truck to fix the problem. 

  3. Coordination: Imagine you have a team ready to fix any issue, but they're scattered all over the city. Getting the right person to the right billboard at the right time, with the right tools, can be a logistical nightmare. 

Today you have two choices: deploy AMG Systems network devices that can be reset by simply unplugging a remote fiber optic connection, or implement AMG Systems NMS software.

Now, enter the superhero of our story: the Network Management System. Think of the NMS as a high-tech command center s displaying the status of every billboard in real time and tools to remotely adjust or reset them.

Here are the benefits:

  • Enhanced Visibility: With NMS, it's like having a drone flying over the city, giving you a live feed of every billboard. You know instantly if something's wrong, allowing for quick action.

  • Remote Troubleshooting and Control: Imagine if you could fix a billboard with just a few clicks on your computer. That's what NMS allows network engineers to do with remote devices—often resolving issues without the need for on-site visits.

In essence, a Network Management System turns a potentially chaotic task of managing numerous remote devices into a smooth, manageable process. It saves time, reduces operational costs, and enhances the overall reliability and efficiency of the network.

AMG Systems' NMS

AMG Systems is about to release their NMS which monitors the health of remote devices from AMG Systems as well as 3rd party network devices.
