Behind the scenes, you’re tasked with keeping these mission-critical networks at target performance levels. This responsibility comes with its own unique set of challenges:

 

– The need for immediate response to and resolution of critical network issues

 

– Increasing complexity as technology evolves with the surge of new applications and features

 

– Ever-increasing cybersecurity risks

 

Evaluating the current state of your mission-critical network support
\nIt takes active vigilance to ensure mission-critical operations deliver true mission-critical performance. If you haven’t reviewed your operational support plans for over a year, it’s time for re-assessment. Below are the questions to consider when evaluating the reliability of your networks and the services required for peak performance:

 

Risk management: Do you need a predictable financial model to maintain your network operations? What are the implications of a network outage and the costs associated with it?

 

Intelligent network monitoring: Do you have the tools to easily identify critical events and resolve them efficiently? Are you using the metrics from network monitoring to optimize and adjust for capacity variances on your system? Are you maintaining a knowledge database that aggregates intelligence efficiently to properly resolve and prevent outages?

 

Security: Do you understand your risk posture? What measures do you have in place to protect, detect and respond to cyber intrusions?

 

Expertise: Do you have a team versed in RF and IP to maintain your network that can also help you keep up with evolving technologies?

 

Staying current: Are you keeping your core network hardware/software up-to-date? Do you have a plan in place to address obsolescence on your system?
