Network management is the process of administering and managing the computer networks of one or many organisations. Various services provided by network managers include fault analysis, performance management, provisioning of network and network devices, maintaining the quality of service, and so on. Software that enables network administrators or network managers to perform their functions is called network management software.


A small number of accessory methods exist to support network and network device management. Access methods include the SNMP, command-line interface, custom XML, CMIP, Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), Transaction Language 1, CORBA, NETCONF, and the Java Management Extensions (JMX).

Schemas include the Structure of Management Information, WBEM, the Common Information Model, and MTOSI amongst others.[1]

Internet service providers (ISP) use a technology known as deep packet inspection in order to regulate network congestion and lessen Internet bottlenecks.

In the United States, Medical Service Providers provide a niche marketing utility for managed service providers as HIPAA legislation consistently increases demands for knowledgeable providers. Medical Service Providers are liable for the protection of their clients' confidential information, including in an electronic realm. This liability creates a significant need for managed service providers who can provide secure infrastructure for transportation of medical data.
