Network Monitoring Services


The Benefits of Network Monitoring Services

If your organization is dependent on the optimal performance of your infrastructure, then the ability to monitor your network architecture’s performance is of the utmost importance. Network monitoring services provide clients with 24x7x365 network monitoring of their network’s most critical areas including routers, switches, firewalls, and servers, to ensure optimal network performance alongside the ability to proactively address issues before lagging systems or downtime impact users. Proactively identifying network performance bottlenecks help make the most of your IT investments and minimize costly end user non-productivity.

T ypes of Network Monitoring

Network monitoring services are crucial for maintaining the health, performance, and resilience of your organization and its computer networks. Different types of network monitoring serve distinct purposes to ensure optimal functionality. Learn more about them below, or contact our team of network monitoring professionals.
Performance Monitoring
Performance monitoring is the process of systematically observing and analyzing various metrics to assess the efficiency and effectiveness of a system or network. Commonly monitored performance metrics include latency, which measures the time it takes for a data packet to travel from its source to its destination; throughput, which indicates the amount of data transferred within a specified period; and packet loss, which measures the percentage of data packets lost during transmission.
Availability Monitoring

Availability monitoring is the practice of ensuring that a system or network is accessible and operational. Common techniques include ping tests, which assess network reachability, HTTP checks to verify web server availability, and service uptime monitoring to track the continuous operation of services critical to your organization. Ping tests involve sending a network packet to a target device and measuring the round-trip time, while HTTP checks assess the ability to receive HTTP responses.

Traffic Monitoring

Traffic monitoring is the systematic observation and analysis of data flows within a network to gain valuable insights into its performance, aiding in capacity planning, network optimization, and the identification of unusual or suspicious activities. By scrutinizing metrics such as bandwidth usage, packet counts, and application-specific data, organizations can anticipate future resource needs for effective capacity planning. In addition, suspicious patterns can be detected.

Security Monitoring

Security monitoring is the surveillance and analysis of a system's activities to identify and respond to potential threats. It plays a critical role in threat detection by actively monitoring network traffic, system logs, and user behavior to identify abnormal patterns. Security monitoring provides real-time alerts, enabling swift and effective reactions to mitigate and contain security breaches. Also it contributes to compliance by ensuring organizations adhere to regulatory requirements and security policies.

Network Monitoring Services vs. Tools

Network monitoring services and standalone tools both serve the purpose of overseeing network performance, but they greatly differ in their scope and approach. Standalone tools are typically software solutions that users install and manage themselves, offering a DIY approach. In contrast, network monitoring services are typically outsourced to dedicated providers, like Technical Support International, who manage the entire monitoring process, leveraging their expertise and infrastructure. Professional network monitoring services provide benefits such as scalability, as they can adapt to changing network sizes and complexities. They also offer real-time alerts, in-depth analysis, and comprehensive reporting, delivering a holistic view of network health.
