  ipSentry Monitoring Features - Modem Connection Monitor  

Modem Connection Whether you have modem banks or a dialup security status modem, you want to make sure that when a request for modem handshake negotiation is made that it succeeds.

The ipSentry Modem Connection add-in is a specialized feature intended for systems utilizing dial in modem connections.

This add-in allows you to perform basic dial + handshake modem based tests to ensure that you can establish a modem based connection to the remote modem.

With the basic modem scripting option, you can add simple send/receive functionality after an established connection for more specialized situations where modem based dialogue may be required such as user login functionality.

This functionality is ideal for testing dialup terminal servers and provides with confidence that:
  • Your customers are not receiving BUSY signals.
  • Your customers are not receiving RNA's (Ring No Answer)
  • Your terminal servers are requesting login credentials.
  • Your authentication system is functioning properly.
  • Your Security / Emergency system outbound phone line is available.**
**Today, many security monitoring systems use POTS (or PSTN)  lines to send communicate alert condition regarding fire and theft alerts.  What if the lines are down and the system can't make the call? Enter an inexpensive modem, sitting in auto-answer mode on the same line. For about $400 invested in a Modem, ipSentry, this add-in, and a small UPS to keep the modem powered upduring a power outage, you might just save yourself thousands, millions, or even save a life by making sure the telephone line is always up for the emergency and security systems to dial the outbound alert when a security problem is detected. Dial out on one line, inbound on your security line, and if no connection can be established - there's a problem and you will know about it.

*Always check with your security and emergency systems service provider for their advice and recommendations to determine if this type of activity is compatible with your existing configuration before adding any devices to your emergency phone lines.
