As a business, downtimes and outages to your network represent a loss of productivity and profit. They’re frustrating and costly, and in some cases, could have been avoided through proper network monitoring and alerting.

What is network monitoring?

Networking monitoring is the tracking of different elements of a network and its operation (including traffic, bandwidth utilization, uptime and downtime). A critical IT process, network monitoring tools detect network components and endpoints across both hardware and software.


Effective network monitoring tools help IT administrators reduce the time taken to repair real-time network performance issues with the use of instant alerting, be it by text, email, or a platform-based dashboard. Furthermore, it can provide useful reports detailing data and analytics on the status, availability, and performance of every router, switch, firewall, and wireless LAN controller in your business.

What are the benefits of monitoring and alerting for UK companies?

  1. Greater visibility. Administrators can clearly see all the connected devices in the network, how they are transporting data, and any associated issues. This is particularly valuable given the increasing complexity of modern enterprises and the variety of internet-dependent services they rely on to run their business.
  2. Quicker resolution of issues. The greater visibility means issues can be quickly pinpointed and resolved.
  3. Better performance. Through quickly identifying and resolving issues, your network can perform better with fewer outages, incidents, and faults.
  4. Better value. Network monitoring systems reduce manual and administrative workload for in-house IT teams, leaving them free to dedicate increased time to more valuable projects.
  5. Future proofing. By analysing the reports on the performance of network components over a defined period that a network monitoring system provides, organizations can anticipate when upgrades or a whole new IT infrastructure will be needed.
  6. Better security. The greater visibility and management make it easier to spot unusual activity and determine any potential security issues and the appropriate response.
