    Network Management

    Networks are the information infrastructure of enterprises. Networking, also known as computer networking, enables computers and other devices to be connected to one another on a local area network (LAN) or to a larger network, such as the Internet or a private wide area network (WAN). It facilitates everything from telephone calls to text messaging to streaming video to the Internet of things – the billions of physical devices around the world that are connected to the Internet, all collecting and sharing data.

    In other words, networking is how service providers, businesses, government entities, and consumers share resources and information. Network managers and administrators are the people whose job it is to oversee LANs and WANs and to make sure that this interconnectivity and communication are not interrupted.

    Students of network management learn how to set up and configure software and hardware, create and maintain backup systems, manage user accounts, ensure network security, monitor systems for potential issues, analyze problems, and create plans to prevent or correct issues. Put simply, they learn how to keep network systems up and running.
