NET-5640 Large-Scale Network Operations, Administration, and Maintenance

Network operations centers (NOC) are the command and control hubs used to manage network resources in large networks. NOC personnel are concerned with the operation, administration, and maintenance of these systems. Operation pertains to keeping the network up and running efficiently. This includes monitoring the network to identify and resolve issues as soon as possible. Administration involves keeping track of resources in the network and how they are allocated. It includes all the day-to-day detail work needed to control the network. Maintenance is concerned with performing repairs and upgrades as well as corrective and preventive measures to make the managed network operate more efficiently. In this course, students will develop the knowledge and skills in network management to allow them to control, plan, allocate, deploy, coordinate, and monitor network resources. Topics include network planning, frequency allocation, predetermined traffic routing to support load balancing, cryptographic key distribution authorization, configuration management, fault management, security management, performance management, bandwidth management, route analytics, and accounting management.
