Frequently Asked Questions

What does a network administrator do?

A network administrator manages an organization’s computer network and IT systems, keeping them secure, up-to-date, and performing at full capacity. In large companies, network administrators are also responsible for connecting each of the different systems and software platforms together. They keep their employer’s policies and procedures in mind while performing any network-related services. 

What certifications do you need to be a network administrator?

If you’re hoping to kickstart your career in network administration, you may want to apply for a CompTIA A+. This certificate guarantees that you have the fundamental skills to take on different IT responsibilities. It will also give you the basics for entry-level or junior network administrator jobs. It further covers all important areas in network administration—software, operating systems, information security, and cloud computing. 

The CompTIA A+ certificate makes a good foundation for other CompTIA certifications you may want to pursue in the future such as Network+ and Security+.

Another entry-level certification to consider is the Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) certificate. Much like the CompTIA A+, it makes for an excellent foundation for more advanced credentials.  

Take note that every employer utilizes different software solutions and hardware. This means they often require vendor-specific certifications such as the Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate or the Linux Foundation Certified System Admin certification.

What is the difference between a system administrator and a network administrator?

While small organizations often use the terms system administrator and network administrator interchangeably, in large companies, there is a clear distinction. The duties of a network admin revolve around the network itself, which pertains to a group of computers connected to each other. System administrators meanwhile look after computer systems, meaning that they’re in charge of everything that makes a computer function. 

What skills does a network administrator need?

As a network and IT systems administrator, you ought to have extensive knowledge of networking principles. That includes all the types of hardware to establish these computer systems. You also need knowledge of networking protocols, operating systems, and security solutions.

Aside from having a good technical background, you must have the skills to configure, maintain, troubleshoot, and secure a company’s network. 

How do I start a career in networking?

A degree in IT, computer science, or other related fields might not always be required in network administrator jobs; however, it can help you stand out in the job market, and in some cases, make career development easier. If you want other means to gain knowledge and skills in this line of work, establishing a strong technical background is fundamental. You then need to acquire the right certifications for the kind of roles you want or the employer you wish to work with. From there, you can work on building experience and honing your skills for further opportunities.
