There are various standards and vendor terminology that fall under these diverse terms and it very much depends on a perspective and what the end goal is. It generally encompasses one or more of the following:

  • Network Management (Fault, Performance, Configuration Management)

  • Network Monitoring

  • Network Intelligence 

  • Virtualization and Cloud management

  • Server Monitoring (physical and virtual)

  • Application Monitoring

  • Service Assurance

  • Real-time network visibility and analytics (such as routing analytics for all IGP and BGP protocols)

  • Network and Service Automation

Irrespective of the terminology and technologies deployed, from a service delivery perspective these roughly translate to:

  • Service definition, configuration, provisioning / automation
