Many network organizations face the daunting task of providing support services for wired networks and a rapidly growing number of different wireless services. As a result, all network organizations should rethink their support capabilities and strategies. This research note discusses several support areas to consider as business units embrace wired and wireless technology solutions:
- Wireless support and network management integration.
- Changing network management system functionality.
- One example of the new network support organization.
Network organizations must successfully modify and/or augment existing services to support wired, Wireless LAN, and cellular data networks. Unless support models meet these new challenges, network organizations could find themselves in an untenable position.
