A Tradition of Effectiveness
Introducing Spectíf™ Solo, the newest member of TSB International’s family of remote access/network data collection products. With more than 35,000 units in use worldwide, TSB’s AT and CC hardware products have set the standard for effective alarms, traffic and CDR data handling. In a crowded marketplace, AT and CC products are distinguished by their innovative use of distributed intelligence – in the form of downloadable switch-specific software and programmable handling/logging options – that allow service providers to achieve consistent results managing remote, multi-vendor network equipment. Spectíf Solo moves this tradition of effectiveness forward. Solo combines the robust AT Plus and CC Plus feature sets on a powerful platform that uses the VXWorks™ embedded operating system powered by a Pentium™ processor. Solo simplifies and economizes network access and operations through browser enabled TCP/IP communications over dialup voice, Ethernet or ISDN facilities. Solo supports the SNMP management standard for multi-vendor alarm handling and reporting.
