Monitoring of the infrastructure (basic package) 2. Configuration and management of the wired network 3. Configuration and management of the wireless network 4. Configuration and management of additional network services ü For each organization (customer), the CNaaS team and the customer will define the exact scope, involved packages and expected timeline.
