Network Operations

Definition/Scope: (JP 6-0) NETOPS provides integrated network visibility and end-toend management of networks, global applications, and services across the GIG. Network visibility enables commanders to manage their networks as they would other combat systems. The NETOPS mission is to operate and defend the GIG. Unlike many missions that are deemed successful at a defined completion date, the NETOPS mission is perpetual, requiring continual support to be successful. The effectiveness of NETOPS is measured in terms of availability and reliability of network enabled services, across all areas of interest, in adherence to agreed-upon service levels and policies. The purpose of NETOPS is assured system and network availability, assured information protection, and assured information delivery.
