The Teleste White paper looks at Data over Coax - quality service at lower costs. With the growing popularity of OTT video services and high definition video formats, broadband users will need significantly higher bandwidth in the future.
In the last few years, traditional triple-play services have been commoditized and this resulted in significant revenue reduction for Service Providers triggering a search to replace the lost revenue. The Connected Home space is quickly becoming a major opportunity and turning into the focal point of Service Providers' interest to offer additional revenue-generating value-added services to consumers.
Compared to classic hierachical Ethernet architectures, Ethernet Fabrics provide the higher levels of performance, utilization, availability and simplicity required to meet the business needs of data centers today and into the future.
Wireless Internet access defines both customer experience and operational effectiveness for virtually all businesses in the hospitality industry. Whether using the network for business or pleasure, customers demand pervasive wireless coverage in their room, in the hotel lobby, at a restaurant or in a conference center.
One trend in the data center that has shown consistent progress is the convergence of switching fabrics. Servers in data centers are typically connected to three different network areas: Storage, TCP/IP and Cluster networking. Because these areas have different requirements, different switching fabrics are typically used: Fibre Channel, Ethernet and InfiniBand.
As enterprises continue to experience the clear cost and productivity benefits of an increasingly mobile workforce, they are deploying wireless for business-critical applications. This Meru white paper looks at the All-Wireless Enterprise.
Want a standard IT platform that delivers network optimization and virtualization to the branch office? Look no further. In this report, Forrester investigates the reasons why you should consider WAN optimization solutions as the best way to gain better IT performance, cost savings, and greater flexibility for your business. And it's also a smart network improvement investment over the long-term. Get the facts about WAN optimization in this study.
OneBase InSite Connect is developed as a product to control and monitor several processes, remotely configure site equipment and consolidate alarms for various devices in a cell site. While many base station vendors offer some level of dry contact alarm management, InSite Connect is designed to provide more than just dry contacts, radio, and antenna alarming.
Service providers are looking for new ways to produce incremental revenue by providing Carrier-Grade Ethernet services, business VPN's and Internet connectivity. The challenges in bringing these services to market are minimizing upfront investment and maintaining a high level of service in the infrastructure.
From its origin more than 25 years ago, Ethernet has evolved to meet the increasing demands of packet-switched networks. Due to its proven low implementation cost, its known reliability, and relative simplicity of installation and maintenance, its popularity has grown to the point that today nearly all traffic on the Internet originates or ends with an Ethernet connection. Further, as the demand for ever- aster network speeds has grown, Ethernet has been adapted to handle these higher speeds and the concomitant surges in volume demand that accompany them.
The IEEE 802.3ae standard, which was adopted in July 2002, defines two 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) main interface types: 10GE LAN and 10GE WAN. The 10GE LAN PHY carries 10 Gbps of data traffic encoded using the 64B/66B protocol. The 10GE WAN PHY also uses the 64B/66B encoding protocol, but it adds a WAN Interface Sublayer (WIS) to provide a simplified SONET/SDH framer function and a SONET/SDH-compatible MIB.
The price of Internet-connected video devices (or webcams) is falling rapidly while their overall features and reliability are rising. As the demand for video surveillance increases, many enterprises are understandably looking at ways to use webcams for that purpose. This white paper shows that deployment of 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) in combination with high-quality structured cabling can optimize the use of webcams for video surveillance.
When it comes to structured cabling performance, the objectives of a standard are both to ensure the performance of present, foreseen and perhaps unforeseen applications, and to allow interoperability of components from multiple manufacturers that make up a structured cabling system. Ensuring the performance of applications has rarely been an issue, since the requirements defined in TIA 568B.2, and ISO 11801 are in excess of what typical applications such as Ethernet require, as developed in IEEE 802.3an
Only recently has WAN optimisation been widely adopted as a key facilitating technology for distributed computing by branch office users. In contrast, various forms of thin-client computing have been around for a long time, and often IT managers assume the use of thin client technology to be starting point for many remote computing environments. However, these original assumptions are often arrived at without adequately evaluating more recently-available alternatives such as WAN optimisation solutions.
Fortune 1000 CIOs are making the strategic choice to consolidate remote site IT infrastructure into central data centres. They are compelled to move some or all remote file servers, email servers, backup, and other servers because through such site consolidation they can jointly address the need to reduce remote site operating costs and mandates for more rigorous security and compliance. The stumbling block to consolidation, however, is the severe impact on application performance as seen by remote users. Relocating local servers to a data center and connecting them across a wide area network (WAN) link often results in order-of-magnitude slowdowns to response times and data transfer rates. At these levels of delay business processes are impacted forcing site consolidation efforts to be stalled.
The Emirates are bordered to the north by the Gulf and the Musandam Peninsula, to the east by Oman, to the south and west by Saudi Arabia and to the northwest by Qatar. The land is mountainous and mostly desert.
