Introduction to QLogic InfiniPath InfiniBand Adapters

“The lower the communications latency, the faster the time-to-solution.” This truism, though logical and truthful, is only useful to IT managers if it is accompanied by suggestions targeting ways to reduce communications latency. But help is here: a single-chip application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC), optimized for communications patterns typically found in HPC applications, makes this truism ring truer.

VoIP Introduction

VoIP uses internet protocol data packets to transfer voice, fax, and other data over the shared network, rather than the traditional public switched telephone network (PSTN), which is based on copper wires carrying analog voice data over the dedicated circuits. VoIP, in contrast to PSTN, uses what is called packet-switched telephony, whereby the voice information travels to its destination in individual network packets across the Internet that are assembled and then converted to voice. Learn the basics of VoIP by reading this white paper, which includes explanations of coding and protocol for VoIP, and a look at quality and myths about VoIP.
