FreePBX Remote Monitoring Service
Why You Need it
Businesses with mission-critical applications cannot afford to lose revenue, productivity and reputation due to system failures and service outages. Although datacenters invest in measures to prevent system downtime, countless of examples exist where catastrophic failures occur and customers are significantly affected, even in environments achieving 99.9999% high availability. Whether it be a mobile service provider’s data network going down or an airline carrier’s computer system, every single instance impacts customers and could spell disaster for your business. This is where Sangoma’s FreePBX monitoring service called RMS is here to help.
What is RMS?
RMS is Sangoma’s Cloud-based remote FreePBX monitoring service providing PBX administrators with real-time information of every metric of their FreePBX and PBXact phone system infrastructure. RMS’s intuitive dashboard provides quick access to information you need to know, right away. Everything from Hardware, Operating System, Voice-Over-IP, network and FreePBX/PBXact call extension & security threat information is available from the RMS web Portal.
Simple and Worry Free Design
Because the service is Cloud-based there is no onsite management required, someone else worries about the technology and its accessible wherever you are on whatever device is on hand. Simply purchase a license for the monthly service, either through the online portal or through the RMS module built into the FreePBX/PBXact Administration GUI and you are on your way to keeping your business up and running.
How it Works
From within the FreePBX/PBXact Administration GUI or the Sangoma Store Portal, customers purchase an RMS Monitoring license key to activate the service on that particular system. (A license is required per PBX to be monitored). An RMS Module (called RMS Agent) will automatically download and install onto that system and be used to monitor the PBX and periodically send relevant status information to Sangoma’s Cloud infrastructure. Customers are provided with an RMS Portal Account used to log into the RMS Website sangoma-rms.com where they can review and monitor all their systems RMS is monitoring for them.
Because RMS uses Push Technology, each PBX will push all the metric data to the RMS hosted servers over a permanent, secure TLS connection. This eliminates the need to open, adjust or configure local LAN firewall ports.
