In Memorium...

You will recall that Ed was the Phoenix area Certifcation Chairman for what seemed like decades, and retired from work at FOX-10 TV about 5 years ago. Ed inspired several generations of broadcast engineers and will be missed greatly.

No details on services are available at this time.

A Guide to SNMP for Broadcast Engineers

The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) has been a part of computer and networking systems for many years. Now, this standardized control language is migrating into more and more broadcast-oriented equipment and systems, and new facility control software is being developed to enable the use of this powerful tool to monitor and manage equipment as part of an overall broadcast facility control plan.
