When an organization’s networks form the backbone of its operations, the network administrator has to ensure that its networks function smoothly at all times. For this, organizations require network administrators who have a thorough understanding of networking concepts, including network connectivity devices, signal transmission methods, network models, networking standards, and switching technologies.
In the current global business environment where organizations may operate from several geographical locations, it is important that network administrators are able to manage and monitor networks efficiently. In addition, in the context of organizations’ need for greater security for their networks, data, and systems, network administrators must have the ability to implement security mechanisms to prevent and mitigate security attacks.
