Lockheed Martin Trusts AKCP

AKCP AdministratorCase Study

When Lockheed Martin needed an advanced environmental monitoring solution for their fuel monitoring they relied on AKCP.

A crucial aspect of the integration process was proper communication with their current WhatsUp Gold monitoring system. AKCP allows you to upload our MIB file, which has all of our OID’s for the sensors, into the WhatsUp Gold software.

“We chose your product after doing a trade study to replace our current fuel monitor.” said Lockheed Martin in regards to their choice of AKCP solutions. “We wanted the chosen product to integrate with a BACNet system or SNMP for WhatsUp Gold for monitoring capability. The BACNet approach was more complex and costly and our engineers prefer to use SNMP capable solutions when possible.”

Initially they installed the SPAGENT-MIB in WhatsUp Gold and created the device for the securityProbe 5ES. They were able to ping and scan the device, however they could not use MIB walker to walk the device. They immediately contacted AKCP to take advantage of their unlimited support.

The problem was with the WhatsUp Gold set up. It was interpreting the dot notation string as the OID. When they finally realized part of that string was the instance, everything clicked into place for the WUG configuration.

Shortly thereafter Lockheed Martin told AKCP Support Manger Scott Farnum.

“We were surprised by how easy the fuel monitor was to set up. I had several questions regarding the SNMP configuration and integration with WhatsUp Gold and give my thanks for your excellent Tech Support.“

“Thanks for all your support.  We’ve completed the installation successfully, complete with WhatsUp Gold integration.” – Lockheed Martin
