SBC Offers IP-Based Surveillance and Monitoring

SBC Communications has begun offering an IP-based solution for remote monitoring of business network equipment and other critical IT infrastructure. The SBC IP Surveillance solution, which is powered by equipment from NetBotz, allows businesses to monitor equipment at multiple sites from a centralized location.

The SBC solution can combine IP cameras with many combinations of motion detectors, temperature sensors, power surge detectors, humidity sensors, fluid detectors, particle sensors, door sensors, and other detection equipment based on specialized customer requirements for larger spaces, such as data centers or manufacturing floors, or small spaces, such as equipment closets and server rooms. The solution automatically alerts authorized individuals of potential problems through a variety of methodologies, including e-mail, SNMP (simple network management protocol), HTTP POST, telephone or pager. Customers can deploy the right mix of monitoring and alert options to meet their specific, unique business needs.

The SBC service is now available 19 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.
