Network mapping is the study of the physical connectivity of networks e.g. the Internet. Network mapping discovers the devices on the network and their connectivity. It is not to be confused with network discovery or network enumerating which discovers devices on the network and their characteristics such as (operating system, open ports, listening network services, etc.). The field of automated network mapping has taken on greater importance as networks become more dynamic and complex in nature.
Avoid downtime with a network monitoring solution that covers you from the network edge to the cloud. See developing issues before users report them. Troubleshoot faster from an interactive topology map that shows connectivity and dependencies.
