Preliminary Planning: Assess Your Existing Network Before You Budget

Before you start any work on your deployment even budgeting you need to begin with a thorough assessment of your existing network, to determine how much of your existing transport and network equipment is compatible with SNMP monitoring.

You certainly want to identify any potential replacement issues before you budget, or you may be caught short by unexpected problems. But equally, you want to take advantage of opportunities to reduce your capital expenditures by continuing to use existing transport and equipment.

Network surveys can be complex. A software survey tool can help make sure you do not miss any essential network elements.

For some ideas on how to evaluate your network, see"DPS Telecom Remote Site Survey," on page 5.
