connect to the slot on the back of your Avaya
1000-6000 VA Online UPS (uninterruptible power system), support real-time web and SNMP
(Simple Network Management Protocol) communication over 10/100BaseT Ethernet connections and serve as a power-protected switching hub to support three additional 10/100BaseT
With the growth in distributed computing, computing and communication resources that reside
in multiple remote locations—and so do the UPSs that protect them. The ConnectUPS product
family compatible with all Avaya UPSs, allows you to monitor and control remote UPSs and
offers a broad range of networking enhancing features.
Supports real-time monitoring and control of UPSs across the network
Enables monitoring and control via web browsers, SNMP-compliant network management
systems or power management software
Delivers alarm notifications through email, to mobile phones, pagers, or SNMP traps
Enables rapid identification and analysis of critical power conditions
Logs and graphs detailed historical data to analyze trends
Uses standard communication protocols on 10Mb and 100Mb Ethernet networks
Performs as a switching hub for three 10/100Mbps connections (for the Avaya 1000-6000
VA Online UPS only)
Enables orderly shutdown and restart of remote UPSs
Supports orderly shutdown of protected operating systems during power outages
The ConnectUPS Web/SNMP Cards are ideal for networking and communications applications
that require remote monitoring via SNMP and the Web.
Ideally suited for:
• DEFINITY® Servers
IP Telephony
Media Servers (for example: S8100, S8300, S8500 and S8700)
Communications Servers
Wireless phone systems such as DEFINITY pocket phone
Contact Centers

persist for a specified period, from 1 to 600 seconds,
the ConnectUPS initiates orderly shutdown of affected

Integrated Switching Hub Capability
The ConnectUPS serves double duty as a switching hub
for three additional power-protected 10/100BaseT
Ethernet connections, thereby eliminating the expense of
buying a separate switching hub and a UPS to protect it.
