So in this session we're going to look at campus operations best practices. This is a very large subject area and we're often asked by many campus administrators what the best current practices are for campus networks. And what we've tried to do in this session is list some of the main ones that we would consider are the most vital for our campus network administrators to consider at the outset of making improvements to their campus infrastructure. And these are the core network services. These core network services are critical for the network to operate properly. IP packets may flow in a network but if these services don't reply or are not configured correctly users and devices won't to be able to connect. And also network applications won't be accessible. So these four services are DNS, DHCP, NTP and the authentication services. So in the next set of slides we're going to explain in turn the importance of eachservice, the guidelines of proper design and configuration and how we go about monitoring them.
