They require "Proactive remote monitoring"...as opposed to us just waiting for the hotel to call us that something is wrong. The hotel may not even know something is wrong, right away.
But the Internet gateways on the market (including the standard of the Industry...the Nomadix) don't have fault monitoring of the WiFi system, built into them to tell when a failure occured in the WiFi system. That would make the expensive Nomadix, even more expensive...plus the other Internet gateways like the DLink and ZyXel units even more expensive.
I guess we could remote monitor a WiFi system by just "pinging" the APs once or twice a day and figure the system is working ok, if the ping works. Does that sound valid? That would be a real inexpensive way to proactively monitor things. It's just not full time monitoring.
But on the more expensive end of the spectrum, I hear there is equipment that can be used to real time monitor a WiFi system and let me know the moment something fails? Is that the Air Path I have heard about? Seems like something like this would run up a WiFi proposal up hundreds or thousands of dollars due to the extra wiring, equipment, and labor for installation of just the monitoring devices.
But in order to meet the "Proactive remote Monitoring" that the company wants to be put in place, I figure there must be some kind of "cost effective" method of remote monitoring a WiFi installation without having to spend thousands of dollars...or even hundreds of dollars.
I'm really wondering if there is a way to do it cost effectively. Cause none of the WiFi systems have fault notifications built into them so as to notify the technical support provider.
Any info in this area will be much appreciated.
