Summary: A NOC can be an essential component to any company or business. Implementing it might be the best decision you’ve ever made.
A Network Operations Center (NOC) is a crucial component for monitoring an organization’s network and ensuring its uptime. However, NOCs aren’t solely limited to network, they also provide visibility into IT security, systems management, and more. While most large organizations have the necessary resources to create a dedicate NOC infrastructure, many smaller organizations have created their own NOCs due to their capabilities.
If you’re looking to create your own NOC, remember that you don’t need the fanciest and most expensive gear for network surveillance. Realistically, you can create your own anywhere and also understand where network issues are occurring. Here’s how you can go about doing this.
When dealing with a growing network, there are hundreds of devices from different manufacturers. Needless to say, this can be a handful. You’ll want to receive them in a centralized location for easy access. While it’s already a challenge to receive these alerts in a timely fashion, it’s also difficult to manage them to assist the organization as a whole. Ensure that you have centralized management alerts to maintain productivity.
Combine Network Elements
It’s a difficult process to obtain an understanding of every network issue that’s occurring all at one. The best solution to this is to group your devices, which will allow you to monitor devices as a group instead of separate entities. Dynamic groups that add devices automatically based on pre-defined conditions can be a great asset to any NOC. Depending on the type of setup you are looking for, this could vary from being a relatively simple task to something extremely complex.
