Integrated Network Management
In today’s smart world, applications and services rule. Need to reset your password? Don’t call tech support. Log on and do it yourself. Is a building across town running hot? Check the air conditioning remotely—before you send a service crew.
But who rules the applications? Who is the power behind the throne?
Somewhere, somebody’s network is running those applications. And behind the network lies integrated network management software.
The questions for the modern network administrator, then, become not only how to use the network to advance business but also whether the network can deliver the applications users expect. And whether the network management team has the insight and control they need to make network applications dependable and valuable.
The challenge now lies in how well organizations can integrate these network systems, how well they can manage the entire network life cycle, and how well they can use integrated network management software to support services that create marketplace innovation and advantages.
You’ve heard the buzzwords — Cloud, Triple Play (VoIP, IPTV), MPLS, MetroEthernet, 4G (LTE & WIMAX). They’re as pervasive as networking itself. Each brings a different element to the networking experience, and each plays a role in making the world a smarter planet.
