Network Management and Operations Training

Network Management and Operations Training, Network Management refers to the activities, methods, procedures, and tools that pertain to the operation, administration, maintenance, and provisioning (OAM&P) of networked systems. In network management, functions such as security, monitoring, control, allocation, deployment, coordination and planning are executed. Network management is governed by a large number of protocols that exist for its support, including SNMP, CMIP, WBEM, Common Information Model, Java Management Extensions, Transaction Language 1 (TL-1), and Netconf.

Network management products can help enterprises and service providers to:

  • Increase business and network resources
  • Save network administrators time
  • Improve business productivity
  • Increase user satisfaction

This course introduces the fundamentals of network management and operations It details the technology fundamentals of network OAM&P and network management architecture and protocols such as SNMP, WBEM and others. It explains what’s behind this family of popular networking standards and procedures.

Who Should Attend

This overview course is primarily intended for any audience interested in a conceptual understanding of the architecture, attributes, protocols and features of the network management and OAM&P.


Upon completing this course, the attendees will be able to:

  • Specify the motivation for network management and operation
  • Sketch network management architecture, protocols and components
  • Examine OAM&P functions and procedures
  • List all the FCAPS functions (Fault, Configuration, Accounting, Performance and Security)
  • List key concepts and operations of SNMP and WBEM
  • Devise a strategy for deploying network management
  • Examine different network management protocols and standards
  • Examine the key differences between TL-1, SNMPv1, 2 and 3 technologies, WBEM, XML, CORBA, JMX etc.
  • Discuss key features of network management security as Authentication, Privacy Services and Access Control
