In the wake of the recent major outage in mobile communication in Manchester, UK company Jacarta is aiming to spread the word on how companies can protect the running of their mobile networks.
For years, organisations looking to provide greater security for data centres, IT rooms and other critical areas have been forced to spend heavily on expensive environmental monitoring systems.
Jacarta boldly claims that this has changed with the launch of its £349 interceptor environmental monitoring system. The product has been designed to work without the assistance of specialist personnel to install and operate, thus potentially saving businesses both time and money.
Colin Mocock, Jacarta marketing director comments: “Environmental monitoring is vital in the early detection of potential disasters in IT environments, and hence is an important part of any company’s Business Continuity strategy. However, businesses have been forced to spend far more than they needed to in this area because the range of systems available to them was being dictated by suppliers, and not by the customer.”
interSeptor works via a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet device that is connected directly into an organisation’s existing IT network. It can then be monitored via a browser interface or an SNMP network management system such as HP OpenView, Tivoli or What’sUp Gold. interSeptor alerts relevant personnel in the event of a problem via an integral e-mail notification facility or an optional text or voice messaging alert service. It can even provide daily status e-mail reports, while a range of comprehensive logging and graphing tools are also available.
