1. Introduction
A UPS can be configured with either an internal or an external SNMP-32 card; this SNMP-32 card is then connected to
the network. The SNMP-32 card contains a MIB agent. The agent communicates both solicited and unsolicited
messages to the Network Management Station (NMS). Unsolicited messages are defined by the MIB and are built into
the agent for critical items such as AC power failure and low battery detection. The agent recognizes these critical
events and immediately forwards them to the Network Management Station. The network manager will immediately
notice the alarm and the flashing icon of the SNMP-32 card. By clicking on the icon, you will be able to see the alarm
messages. If nobody is present, the Network Management Station will shutdown the programs, the OS server and
eventually the UPS safely.
1-1. Features
The SNMP-32 card connects directly to your UPS. It runs an embedded Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
software agent. This agent responds to SNMP GETS and SETS and also forwards traps to designated recipients when
critical conditions occur within the UPS, such as the UPS going on battery backup mode during a power failure.
The SNMP-32 card features:
• Internet ready — It supports TCP/IP, UDP, SNMP, Telnet, SNTP, PPP, HTTP and SMTP protocols. The user can
use a SNMP manager or a Web browser to monitor the UPS through a network.
• Multiple OS support — As long as there is Network Management software present.
• Remote setup support — Once an IP address is assigned the rest can be setup remotely through Telnet or a
Browser.
• Remote monitoring — Monitors the status of one UPS from a remote workstation (Web browser or NMS).
• Remote Control — Turns the UPS off (or a battery test) when the NMS sends the proper command.
• NMS To Receive UPS Alarms — These traps (unsolicited messages) inform the user about the power condition of
the connected UPS.
• Works with most major NMS on Ethernet — SNMP-32 card works with the most widely used Network
Management Systems: HP Open View, Sun NetManager, IBM NetView, and many more.
• Remote Software upgrade — The SNMP-32 card supports Software upgrade through the Ethernet remotely.
• Daily historical reports — Automatically emails daily history reports to the specified users.
• Auto-Sense — Auto-Senses 10/100M Ethernet.
• Event Notifications — Sends both SNMP Traps and Emails for event notification.
• 3-Ports — Environmental Monitoring (Optional Kit), External Modem, and Ethernet.

1-3. Applications
SNMP-32 card and the UPS
A UPS can be configured with either an internal or an external SNMP-32 card; then it is connected to the network. The
SNMP-32 card contains a MIB agent. The agent communicates both solicited and unsolicited messages to the Network
Management Station (NMS). Unsolicited messages are defined by the MIB and are built into the agent for critical items
such as AC power failure and low battery detection. The agent recognizes these critical events and immediately
forwards them to the Network Management Station. The network manager will immediately notice the alarm and the
flashing icon of the SNMP-32 card. By clicking on the icon, you will be able to see the alarm messages. If nobody is
present, the Network Management Station will shutdown the programs, the OS server and eventually the UPS safely.
SNMP-32 card and the RPM (Remote Power Manager)
When the RPM is connected to the network with the SNMP-32L card, the system manager could check each device’s
condition via a Web Browser. The manager could monitor and control the devices by simply inputting the IP address of
the SNMP-32L card. When there is an abnormal power condition the SNMP-32L card will send the trap information to
the system manager, and then the system manager can take the appropriate action.
SNMP-32 card and the ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch)
An ATS can be configured with the SNMP-32 card; then it is connected to the network. The ATS is an Automatic
Transfer Switch with redundant input sources. The ATS can be viewed and controlled via a Web Browser.
SNMP-32 card and the CPS (Current Probe Sensor)
The CPS and the SNMP-32 card can be used to monitor the current (Amps) of 16 devices. The information can be view
via a Web Browser.
SNMP-32 card and the ENV (Environmental Monitoring)
A Temperature/Humidity Probe can be connected to the SNMP-32 card to monitor the temperature and humidity of the
surrounding environment. The SNMP-32 card is then, connected to the network to view the environmental conditions via
a Web Browser. When an abnormal condition occurs, a trap can be sent to the system manager and activated some preset action configured by administrator.

9. Appendix
This section discusses: Communities, Gateways, IP Addresses, and Subnet masking.
Communities
A community is a string of printable ASCII characters that identifies a user group with the same access privileges. For
example, a common community name is “public.”
For security purposes, the SNMP agent validates requests before responding. The agent can be configured so that only
trap managers that are members of a community can send requests and receive responses from a particular community.
This prevents unauthorized managers from viewing or changing the configuration of a device.
Gateways
Gateway, also referred to as a router, is any computer with two or more network adapters connecting to different physical
networks. Gateways allow for transmission of IP packets among networks on an Internet.
IP Addresses
Every device on an Internet must be assigned a unique IP (Internet Protocol) address. An IP address is a 32-bit value
comprised of a network ID and a host ID. The network ID identifies the logical network to which a particular device
belongs. The host ID identifies the particular device within the logical network. IP addresses distinguish devices on an
Internet from one another so that IP packets are properly transmitted.
IP addresses appear in dotted decimal (rather than in binary) notation. Dotted decimal notation divides the 32-bit value
into four 8-bit groups, or octets, and separates each octet with a period. For example, 199.217.132.1 is an IP address in
dotted decimal notation.
To accommodate networks of different sizes, the IP address has three divisions—Classes A for large, B for medium, and
C for small. The difference among the network classes is the number of octets reserved for the network ID and the
number of octets reserved for the host ID.
Class
A
B
C
Value of First Octet
1-126
128-191
192-223
Network ID
First octet
First two octets
First three octets
Host ID
Number of Hosts
Last three octets
16,387,064
Last two octets
64,516
Last octet
254
Any value between 0 and 255 is valid as a host ID octet except for those values the InterNIC reserves for other purposes.
Value
0, 255
127
224-254
Purpose
Subnet masking
Loopback testing and interprocess communication on local devices
IGMP multicast and other special protocols
Subnetting and Subnet Masks
Subnetting divides a network address into sub-network addresses to accommodate more than one physical network on a
logical network.
For example: A Class B company has 100 LANs (Local Area Networks) with 100 to 200 nodes on each LAN. To classify
the nodes by its LANs on one main network, this company segments the network address into 100 sub-network
addresses. If the Class B network address is 150.1.x.x, the address can be segmented further from 150.1.1.x through
150.1.100.x.
36
A subnet mask is a 32-bit value that distinguishes the network ID from the host ID for different sub-networks on the same
logical network. Like IP addresses, subnet masks consist of four octets in dotted decimal notation. You can use subnet
masks to route and filter the transmission of IP packets among your sub-networks. The value “255” is assigned to octets
that belong to the network ID, and the value “0” is assigned to octets that belong to the host ID.
For the example above, if you want all the devices on the sub-networks to receive each other’s IP packets, set the subnet
mask to 255.255.0.0. If you want the devices on a single sub-network only to receive IP packets from other devices on
its own sub-network, set the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 for the devices on that sub-network.
Subnet Mask
0.0.0.0
Routing and Filtering
IP packets are transmitted to all devices.
IP packets are only transmitted to devices that are IP that’s first octet
255.0.0.0
matches the sender’s IP address’s first octet.
IP packets are only transmitted to devices that are IP that’s first two
255.255.0.0
octets match the sender’s IP address’s first two octets.
IP packets are only transmitted to devices that are IP that’s first three
255.255.255.0 octets match the sender’s IP address’s first three octets.
