“A Career in Network Administration”
The career of a Network Administrator is in high demand in this day in age. Many electronics now have Wi-Fi capabilities. Because of this, the career of network administration is very important in case something is required for workers to troubleshoot it. Network administrators are responsible of maintaining LANs, WANs, and intranets. This paper will consist of the wages and earning, requirements, job description, and career path of network administration.
The History of Networking
In 1973, the earliest stages of networking engineers started to figure out ways to connect ARPANET to the packet radio network or PRNET for short. The purpose of a packet radio network is to make connections from computers to radio transmitters and receivers. Then in 1977 many technicians joined the project of making the first satellite network or SATNET for short. The SATNET was the beginning of the next generation of internet users. After the SATNET was a success other networks soon followed which was the spark for the new generation of technology and different networks that we have today.
Back then the network (internet) did not have a way to be navigated. That is where Tim Berners-Lee comes into play. Tim created what we know as the world-wide web or just the web. Tim created this so that people could navigate through the internet with ease to search for more specific things. In the early times of the internet the main groups that used the internet was the government and the army.
Education and Training Requirements
To become a network administrator some requirements, need to be met. Most employers will have a mandatory standard that you will need to have a bachelors degree in anything affiliated with computers or informational science. There are also a few employers that will accept those with a postsecondary certificate. Depending on the circumstances it would also be good if you have troubleshooting and Linux skills. If you want to have a higher chance in getting payed more UNIX and cisco skills will help with that.
Wages and Earnings
The most up to date wages and salaries are recorded from 2015. At the moment, the median salary for a network administrator is $77,810 per year. The hourly payment for network administration is $37.41 per hour. This amount also applies for computer administration as well. It could be more depending on the level of education and the location that the employee is working at. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $47,460 a year. The highest 10 percent earned more than $124,090 a year.
