Network Management (LAN)

What is Network Management?

Network Management is comprised of the administration of hardware, software, security and backups for LAN network equipment. With Network Management, a Managed Services Provider monitors and manages network devices and their throughput to enable a secure, reliable and high-performing network.

Network Management from WIN includes:

  • Network Administration. Configure changes and provision network infrastructure including bandwidth, end-user devices, IoT devices, applications and data.
  • Network Maintenance. Fix network issues as they occur and upgrade the software and hardware vital for the continued operation of the network, including routers, switches, access points and firewalls.
  • Network Performance Monitoring. Proactive monitoring to gather network data, identify developing issues, trends and risks to ensure optimal network performance.
  • Address network vulnerabilities. Monitor the network for signs of potential threats and implement solutions like NextGen firewalls to help mitigate and potentially prevent security risks.  
  • Enhanced Network Security. Implement security measures including network segmentation, restrictive traffic policies, and the enforcement of multifactor authentication.
  • IP address management. Maintain a list of unavailable and available IP addresses for devices that reside on the company network.
  • Network Backup. Ensure that network device configurations are backed up so that services can be restored as quickly as possible in the event of a failure.
  • Network Design and Implementation. Customize solutions according to your unique needs.
  • Setting Network Access Controls. Regulate how edge devices and cloud applications access data via the network.
  • Remote Support. Maintain network hardware and software 24 hours a day during the week. In addition, an IT professional is on call to provide emergency weekend support.
