Fundamentals of SNMP: Part 1

The Simple Network Management Protocol or “SNMP” was created as a means to monitor and control devices in an Internet Protocol (IP) network. SNMP is widely used in Information Technology (IT) environments and is becoming popular in broadcast equipment. This webinar series will begin with providing a familiarity with SNMP fundamentals beginning with consideration to a Network Management System (NMS) architecture and system components. Part 2 will look at implementation of SNMP in the broadcast environment to provide a robust monitoring and notification alerting environment from IT equipment to the transmitter.
