Tony Peterle presents a tutorial on SNMP, which includes an explanation of how SNMP works – the structure and types of SNMP messages, how they are transported over the network, and how they can be used to monitor and control remote equipment. He will also explore in-depth SNMP communications with at least two different target devices – one a well-known transmitter line, and at least one other device from outside the broadcast world (SNMP is found in many devices such as UPS systems, HVAC systems, IT systems, etc).

Norbert Miles, who attended the El Paso Ennes Workshop, said, ” The Ennes Workshop plays a very important part and key element and tool for keeping up with today’s technological advances in the broadcasting industry.” Well said!
