complex devices over recent years it
has been challenged in many ways.
Early versions of SNMP did not
include strong security and were
transmitting over the network in
plain text easily read by someone
with a sniffer. Certainly, improvements have been made with the introduction of v2c and most recently
v3, but challenges remain.
Many DAS OEMs are trying to
support more than 50,000 entries
in a single management information base (MIB). Although not
impossible by any stretch of the
imagination, handling such large
data sets in SNMP is problematic
and very error prone.
Many of today's technology
companies have introduced application program interface (API)
solutions to enhance the integration of systems together. Companies such as Amazon, Google
and Apple offer APIs that you can
directly interface with. So, with
relatively small snippets of code
one can integrate their products
with many others in the marketplace today. This enables the
exchange of data in a much easier,
faster and less error-prone manner.
that software developers can use to
write their own interface. Additionally, the product comes with
software development kits (SDKs)
that support more than 35 languages to make your integration
that much easier.
In a recent experiment, we compressed
1GB of raw data from a live DAS system
and transmitted only 1.1KB.
When made available, Predictive
Technologies can use an application program interface to interface
with a host of other applications
so that monitoring is made quick
and easy. This opens up a world of
possibilities to our customers.
Predictive Technologies' solutions all come with an open API
Now that you have this great solution for exchanging data between
the hardware and our platform,
a great solution is needed to
establish a connection. A typical
inbuilding solution comes with a
modem that is tied to a specific
carrier. That is a good solution
