RollSNMP enables the compelling monitoring features available within RollMap to be applied to other vendors SNMP hardware and software products, delivering a complete broadcast centric management environment encompassing video and audio signal paths, hardware enclosure status and fingertip access to control from a single location.
Coupled with existing serial and GPI interfaces for legacy equipment, the promise of true ‘end to end’ monitoring and control systems is a reality with RollMap and RollSNMP.
SNMP has been used successfully for some time in the IT domain to manage IP network infrastructures. But the tools that exist for monitoring SNMP hardware (agents) are tailored to this IP network environment and as such do not really suit the monitoring requirements of the broadcaster, where principally, the network is a data and control mechanism rather than the content carrier. The real requirement for today’s broadcaster is in monitoring of the signal paths carrying the valuable content assets.
This is where RollSNMP for RollMap comes in. RollMap provides the most powerful Infrastructure Management environment for a broadcast operation. Its ability to enable signal path issue diagnosis by mapping the interconnections between all the elements of your systems, as well as providing layout information mapped to the physical location of infrastructure, delivers beneﬁ ts that no standard SNMP manager can provide.
