The VSZ, which is basically a centralized configuration and management system, also support SNMP v2 and v3 for remote monitoring and can be configured to send SNMP trap for alarm notification.  You an also configure SMTP to email alarms.  This can allow 3rd party tools to provide near real time monitoring of the SZ system.

The vSZ also supports a comprehensive API interface that allows customized applications to gather data and make configuration changes.  This is the best interface for retrieving large amounts of data.

The architecture of the vSZ was designed to have the controller centrally located in a Data Center or NOC with Access Points distributed over long distances.  Many applications, that do not need the SZ to provide authentication, will operate if the AP cannot communicate to the SZ allowing robust remote AP operation.

The SZ WEB-UI interface does provide monitoring and reporting but Data on the SZ is always delayed as it's based on timed status updates from the AP's, so it is not a real time monitoring system.  It also keeps only a few days of Data.  The SCI system allows for long term data gathering for analysis so it's a great tool to add to your system.
