DATAPLEX as a pioneer offer Managed Network Services for a number of enterprise customers with networks scatter in Europe.Our Specialised Personnel and the wide network of service parterns (more than 60) offer enterprice class management services that include:

 

Fault management (ISP escallation)

The goal of fault management is to detect, log, notify users of, and (to the extent possible) automatically fix network problems to keep the network running effectively. Because faults can cause downtime or unacceptable network degradation, fault management is perhaps the most widely implemented of the network management elements.

 

Fault Detection and Notification

 

The purpose of fault management is to detect, isolate, notify, and correct faults encountered in the network.Network devices are capable of alerting management stations when a fault occurs on the systems. An effective fault management system consists of several subsystems.

 

Proactive Fault Monitoring and Notification

 

Normally, a management station performs polling on network devices to determine the status or value of certain variables. For example, a management station polls a router to find out the central processing unit (CPU) utilization and generate anevent when the value hits reaches a configured threshold.

 

 

Configuration File Management

 

When you add new configuration commands on existing network devices needs, you must verify the commands for integrity before actual implementation takes place. An improperly configured network device can have a disastrous effect on network connectivity and performance. Configuration command parameters must be checked to avoid mismatches or incompatibility issues.

 

Software Management

 

A successful upgrade of Cisco IOS images on network devices requires a detailed analysis of the requirements such as memory, boot ROM, microcode level, and so on. The requirements are normally documented and available on Cisco's web site in the form of release notes and installation guides.

 

Inventory Management

The discovery function of most network management platforms is intended to provide a dynamic listing of devices found in the network. Discovery engines such as those implemented in network management platforms should be utilized.

 

Performance Monitoring, Measurement, and Reporting

 

Different performance metrics at the interface, device, and protocol levels should be collected on a regular basis using SNMP. The polling engine in a network management system can be utilized for data collection purposes.

 

Security Management

 

The goal of security management is to control access to network resources according to local guidelines so that the network cannot be sabotaged (intentionally or unintentionally). A security management subsystem, for example, can monitor users logging on to a network resource, refusing access to those who enter inappropriate access codes.
