Network Architect

Definition - What does Network Architect mean?

A network architect is responsible for creating, maintaining and modifying an IP network's hardware, software and virtualized components. Network architects are not only required to maintain expert-level knowledge regarding network hardware and software technology, but they must also be able to translate a network's technological requirements into solutions that benefit a given business.

Techopedia explains Network Architect

Network architects are typically considered experts in terms of integrating a given network's hardware and software components. Consequently they are often sought out for their macro-level knowledge of an organization's network configuration, as they are responsible for knowing both the physical and logical placement of each node within their assigned network. Furthermore, network architects are intimately familiar with the latest networking protocols, server technology and security vulnerabilities.
