SNMP, Module 3: SNMP – What is it Good For? Absolutely Everything!

Originally streamed January 13, 2022

Module 3 of the SNMP Series will explore the use of the Simple Network Management Protocol in broadcast facility control, with a focus on the benefits. We will look at how broadcasters are using SNMP to make their lives easier, and their facilities more robust and resilient. From the simple sharing of information to consolidate data and functions from multiple physical sites onto a single display, use of SNMP has expanded to include control of virtual audio switchers, automatic site handovers and other processes that can help engineers resolve technical issues quickly and maximize up-time!
