Network engineering is the refined process in which many steps are involved. In this article, I would like to give you brief overview of these steps.
Network planning: Network planners usually plan and provide predictive analysis of multi technology, multi vendor, and other network tasks for quality assurance and optimization of network capacity. It is performed for the outrages and changes existed in the network. It also keeps tracks of the performance of optical networks and tries to integrate for the design of multi-layer network design.
IT professionals and network administrators performs systematic and automated configurations, analysis, auditing, and up to date model analysis of network to diagnose policy violations, security gaps, device misconfigurations and inefficiencies.
Network engineering provides real time visualization of the consolidating topology, network production, status and traffic information from several sources in a unified view with targeted dashboards of different key performance metrics.
It creates automated and up to date diagram of Microsoft Visio network. After creating diagram of Microsoft Visio, it is combined with multiple physical and logical views of the network with detailed topology and configuration information.
There are some typical duties that are assigned to network engineer for the maintenance and performance of network. It includes maintenance of network servers, computer terminals, voice communication and data communications. He is responsible for recommending, researching a particular configuration of hardware or writing, customizing and selecting software code for reliable functionality of network. Network engineering is not a simple task in which you need to deal with maintenance of computers, main frames and other components of communication system like switches and routers. There is need to involve in maintaining and testing process on long term basis in network engineering. Large network also requires considerable documentation that is efficient function of network engineering.
