IP Devices Promise the Future of Data Center Control and Management

The need for secure remote management tops network administrators’ “to do” lists. Until now, this was cost-prohibitive for all but the largest data centers. However, Internet protocol (IP) remote management devices are now affordable, enabling all organizations to benefit from secure IP access throughout an office in a distributed computing environment or around the globe—all via an Internet connection and browser.

Voice over IP Reliability

We all know that computers, generally speaking, have not been as reliable as phones. And the fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) surrounding voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) has been, in some cases, justified. However, for VoIP the question now is not whether reliability can be achieved, but rather how much reliability you can expect from the options available to you. Read More

Extending VoIP to Remote Locations: Challenges and Solutions

In the past, the growing pains of voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) centered on voice quality. However, VoIP solutions are now attractive alternatives to conventional analog voice and the public switched telephone network (PSTN). As real-world VoIP rollouts continue, however, new sets of challenges are emerging; in particular, businesses are encountering unanticipated problems as they deploy VoIP to remote locations. Read More

Emerging Services for Wireless Carrier Networks--Design Abstract

The transition to IP A wireless carrier s national or regional next generation core network will be an all-IP network in the sense that IP will be the network layer (L3) protocol. MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) will be the transport protocol for all IP-based services, applications, and control and management traffic in the network.
