Managed Network

Definition - What does Managed Network mean?

A managed network is a type of communication network that is built, operated, secured and managed by a third-party service provider.

A managed network is an outsourced network that provides some or all the network solutions required by an organization. This service is delivered as a cloud infrastructure service or installed and managed in-house by the service provider.

Techopedia explains Managed Network

A managed network allows an organization to source the infrastructure, software and technical support services essential to operate and manage an IP-based communication network. Managed networks may provide hardware infrastructure resources such as servers, routers and switches, as well as operating system and firewall software to run and secure the backend infrastructure and the data stored over it. The whole system is entirely monitored and maintained by the service provider.

Managed networks may include solutions and services such as managed LAN, managed WAN, a managed gateway, managed wireless networks and other automated network support services.
