Your network doesn’t take time off. It runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. That’s a lot of time in which something could potentially go wrong, but how are you expected to keep an eye on your network constantly? Sure, you could hire a team of watchers to take turns standing guard over the network for any sign of trouble, but that’s an inefficient and expensive solution. Worse, it distracts from the core focus of your business. While the network is crucial to keeping your business running, it’s just a tool, not the end goal. Your efforts should be focused on your business, not on your network.
That’s where network monitoring comes in. This service provides round the clock support so that your network is still being monitored even when your office closes for the night. When trouble strikes, it’s quickly identified and resolved, saving you potentially hours of downtime. The service also monitors network devices and collects data to assist in troubleshooting, which allows for speedy and accurate diagnosis and resolution of network issues.
Network monitoring is designed to be user-friendly and an online dashboard provides an easy way to check the status of your network, review statistics, and view alerts. You can search out specific nodes and assets on your network or view alarms to quickly build a comprehensive picture of network operations. To ensure that you never miss a step, you can have notifications of service interruptions delivered by email or text to any mobile device, while also preventing unnecessary alerts during maintenance or testing by using alert suppression.
The data collected is available in a variety of reports and graphs to help you better understand your network and develop an operational plan. Graphs can be viewed for a single day or in weekly, monthly, or yearly formats, with the additional option of viewing customized date/time ranges. This data is right at your fingertips and allows you to visualize your network utilization and plan capacity around peaks based on particular times or campaigns. A history of events and outages lets you follow issues and identify patterns.
With network monitoring, you gain both the security of having an eye on your network at all times and the information you need to better use it. AireSpring Network Monitoring is included free as part of the package with MPLS Mesh and Voice over MPLS, and is also available for other AireSpring products. This service frees you to focus on your core business and lets you sleep soundly at night knowing your network is in safe hands.
