Remote management refers to monitoring, control and operation of electronic or mechanical equipment located at a remote location from a central station called a NOC (Network Operation Center). Remote management applications are almost limitless. At the core of the remote management process is the Remote Telemetry Unit (RTU), a device with communication, measurement and control capabilities. From managing a remote mountain-top telecommunication or broadcast transmitter, an HVAC system in a building or water pumps in the middle of a city, an RTU finds application almost everywhere.
The RTU is usually installed at each site where monitoring, reporting and control is required. It collects all relevant data from other equipment, analyzes it, sends alarm to the NOC or to the user and performs actions based on specific rules defined by the user.
