A Network Management System (NMS) is an application or set of applications that lets network administrators manage a network's independent components inside a bigger network management framework. NMS may be used to monitor both software and hardware components in a network. It usually records data from a network's remote points to carry out central reporting to a system administrator.
The key benefit to NMS is that it permits users to monitor or manage their entire business operations using a central computer. While there is no precise definition of the term due to it being such a broad concept, some of the main areas are summarized below :
The current Networks have been built over a long period of time and have grown exponentially over a period of time. They may consist of networking equipment from different OEM’s and may have different architectures in various segments. Thus there is a need for a Network Management Solution Provider who can provide a solution which can present a holistic view of the network and make the management functions like administration, operation, maintenance and provisioning easy for the customers. To achieve this, DIGITEK has tied up with a number of OEM’s to provide Network Management Solutions for the different kinds of Network architectures. Some of the solutions are proprietary to the OEM’s whereas other may be able to address these requirements for other OEM’s equipment also. With the vast experience that we have in creating networks over the last couple of decades, we are best placed to provide our customers with the right tools to manage the networks.
