This subject presents the operational, tactical and strategic issues involved in corporate network management (NM). The subject will introduce a number of NM models e.g. FCAPS, OAM&P etc., and use one of these models to systematically cover the management of: physical components, staff in a network centre, network configuration, user accounts, network performance, security, faults and disasters. The subject also covers concepts such as NM protocols, service level agreements, network integration and the impact of government regulations on NM. These concepts will be reinforced by a series of hands on exercises including using basic network management tools.
