Network is a scientific ecosystem where devices are connected to share information. To convert data into meaningful information, a network can be formed with a set of computers, printers, routers and switches etc. It creates an environment where devices communicate with each other and they communicate in same language.

For example, the sender and the receiver speak the same language to perform a certain task like printing a paper. Earlier these systems were very complex. They were wired they required constant cabling to prevent any breakdown. Nowadays, network systems are much more untangled than it used to be. The idea of wireless internet Wi-Fi changed it all. People connect laptops, tablets, and many other devices and do stuffs like browsing gaming etc. without any complicated process.

Network systems can be small or large, LAN- local area network set up in local area. It has a few numbers of computers, routers, cables, switches etc. it is used in slow network which is used for home or small offices. WAN- wide area network system set up in a large or wide range. It is generally used in an enterprise where a company has many branches which are connected to the same network but geographically they are miles apart to one another. The ongoing process of a virtual world is network and it is required in every aspects of digital visualization.

Network Monitoring team keeps an eye on the process of network system to prevent it from breakdown to its management. To provide everything as per its requirement for a trouble-free running of network is called Network Monitoring. Managing a network is a very difficult task to perform, it is easier said than done. People put their blood and sweat in order to ensure the smooth running of the network. They deal with stuffs like DDOs attack, power outages, network failures, routing black holes etc. It relates to the procedure resources and software used in maintenance of a network infrastructure.
