Network Administration comprises the management and monitoring of all your network devices including routers, switches, firewalls, wireless access points and communications links.
How does our Network Administration work?
Our qualified and experienced engineers actively monitor your network leveraging state-of-the-art management and monitoring systems to deliver real-time information about your network’s health.
The IT Force network adminstration offering delivers the following services to the client:
- Device Configuration & Management
IT Force configures and manages a full complement of network devices such as routers, switches and firewalls that are added to the network. In a modern business environment It is vital that any changes made within a network do not adversely affect either business or user productivity. We ensure all changes effected within your networks are carried out using a controlled and managed approach
- Wireless Access
This enables network connectivity without the need for cabled connectivity. Connection is established via wireless access points.
- IP Addressing
Every machine on a network has a unique identifier. Just as you would address a letter to send in the post, computers use the unique identifier to send data to specific computers on a network. Most networks today, including all computers on the Internet, use the TCP/IP protocol as the standard for how to communicate on the network. In the TCP/IP protocol, the unique identifier for a computer is called its IP address.
- DNS Record Management
DNS records or Zone files are used for mapping URLs, such as www.mycompany.com, to an IP address. Located on servers called DNS servers, these records are typically the connection of your website with the outside world. Requests for your company website or email service are forwarded to your DNS servers and then get pointed to the Web Servers that serve the website or to Email servers that handle the incoming email.
- Redundancy & Failover
Failover is the automatic switching to a redundant or standby computer server, system, hardware component or network upon the failure or abnormal termination of the previously active application, server, system, hardware component, or network. Provision for redundancy and failover drastically reduces your Recovery Time Objective, or RTO, in the event of a major system failure.
How do clients benefit from Network Administration?
Without this service you may need to hire a fulltime resource in-house to maintain the computer hardware and software systems.
