Network Management

The process of administering, managing, and operating a data network using a network management system is referred to as network management. Modern network management systems use software and hardware to collect and analyze data on a continuous basis, as well as to push out configuration changes to improve performance, reliability, and security.


Functional Area of Network Management:

1.      Network Administration: Network administration includes keeping track of network resources such as switches, routers, and servers. It also includes software updates and performance monitoring.


2.      Network Operation: The goal of network operation is to ensure that the network works properly. Monitoring network activity and proactively identifying and resolving issues are examples of network operation tasks.


3.      Network Maintenance: Network maintenance implies upgrading and repairing network resources. It also includes proactive and remediation activities carried out in collaboration with network administrators, such as the replacement of network equipment such as routers and switches.


4.      Network Provisioning: Network provisioning is the process of configuring network resources to support a specific service, such as voice functions or accommodating additional users.


Basic Requirement of Planning on Network Design: Some of the basic requirements that are needed for successful Network, Designs are listed below.

        i.            A detailed map of network

      ii.            The required cabling structure and layout

    iii.            The number, type, and location of all network devices

    iv.            Complete IP addressing table along with device info

      v.            Network architecture details and processes
