Network Administrators are responsible for the computer network infrastructure. They maintain connectivity and security of the routers, switches and wireless equipment that modern networks depend on.  System Administrators are skilled information technology professionals who are responsible for installing, supporting and maintaining servers and utilizing networking applications.
