Networking is basically specialization in making and managing computer networks which refer to the interconnection of a group of computer systems and peripheral devices. This field has immense importance and demand in the world today. There are several qualifications required for becoming a network engineer which include a post graduate degree in computer engineering and specific certifications like CISCO, Sniffer Pro Network Analyzer (L2 & L3)
Advanced Cisco Router Configuration
Cisco Internetwork Design
Cisco Internetwork Troubleshooting.
You would also need an expertise in operating systems like windows and linux.

When building a small office network, it’s important to determine the best foundation for your company’s needs. The following tips should help you get started.

  • Invest in business-grade switches and routers for reliable communications. Consumer or home networking products can’t keep pace with the challenges of business growth.
  • Invest in a network that can grow over time, so you can add features and functionality as needed. Additions to consider include video surveillance, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), integrated messaging, and wireless applications.
  • Make sure your switches and routers are easy to install, use, and manage. Example: Switches with in-line power allow you to place equipment, such as wireless access points, anywhere there's a network wall jack. You’ll be spared the trouble and expense of installing additional electrical outlets or wires to power the devices.
  • Make sure your network is designed with reliability and redundancy in mind. This provides the business continuity you’ll need to bounce back quickly from unforeseen circumstances.

Metropolitan-area networks MANs): A data network designed for a town or city.
