{jcomments on} Detecting Phantom Devices on Your Network So you run a network discovery and you notice devices that you are not familiar with.

It wouldn't be until you cut it open that you'd come to find the inside is a deep, juicy red. Even though it may sound odd, watermelons are a fitting analogy for metrics in the IT world. It's easy to get a false sense of comfort by glancing at your dashboard. It often presents a large number of indicators that give off a welcoming green gl...

The Network Design and Equipment Deployment Lifecycle

As we all know, technology has a life cycle of birth, early adoption, mainstream, and then obsoletion. Even the average consumer is very in touch with this lifecycle. However, within this overarching lifecycle there are “mini” lifecycles. One of these mini lifecycles that is particularly important to enterprises is the network design and equipment deployment lifecycle. This lifecycle is the basic roadmap of how equipment gets deployed within a company data network and key a topic of concern for ...

Two Ways Networks Are Transformed By NetFlow

According an article in techtarget.com "Your routers and switches can yield a mother lode of information about your network--if you know where to dig." The article goes on to say that excavating and searching through endless traffic data and logs manufactured by your network system is a lot like mining for gold, and punching random holes to look for a few nuggets of information isn't very efficient. Your search will be much more fruitful if you know where to look and what it will look like. Fort...

Vulnerability and lifecycle management also plays an important role in maintaining the security and integrity of network infrastructure. Network Configuration and Change M...

5 Reasons Why You Should Include LAN Switches in Your NCCM Scope

We’ve been doing a lot of blogging around here lately about NCCM and the importance of having an automated configuration and change management system. We’ve even published a Best practices guide for NCCM. One of the main points in any NCCM system is having consistent and accurate configuration backups of all of your “key” devices. When I ask Network Managers to name their key devices, they generally start with WAN / Internet routers and Firewalls. This makes sense of course because, in a modern ...

5 Perks of Network Performance Management

Network performance management is something that virtually every business needs, but not something that every business is actively doing, or even aware of. And why should they?
