Network management

Network management consists of four parts:

  1. Operation - deals with keeping the network up and running smoothly. It includes monitoring the network to spot problems as soon as possible, ideally before users are affected.
  2. Administration - deals with keeping track of resources in the network and how they are assigned. It includes all the "housekeeping" that is necessary to keep the network under control.
  3. Maintenance - is concerned with performing repairs and upgrades - for example, when equipment must be replaced, when a router needs a patch for an operating system image, when a new switch is added to a network. Maintenance also involves corrective and preventive measures to make the managed network run "better", such as adjusting device configuration parameters.
  4. Provisioning - is concerned with configuring resources in the network to support a given service. For example, this might include setting up the network shares / printers so that users can use resources over the network.

During maintenance hours ASB IT makes sure all mentioned above have been checked and performed.
