Network Traffic Engineering Guidelines for Fibre Channel Switches

Scalability—or performance? In the past, storage area network (SAN) architects had to choose one over the other with regard to their SANs. Now, however, compromise is no longer necessary. Stackable switch solutions allow for seamless scaling and high performance—which means you can breathe as easily as your data transfers.

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.

The Hidden Benefits of VoIP Revealed

The appeal of VoIP is straightforward: By converging voice and data into a single, unified network, businesses can lower costs and increase productivity, as the scaled-down VoIP infrastructure is easier and less expensive to maintain. Read this white paper to gain a competitive advantage with VoIP’s four “secret weapons”: rich media, mobility, unified communications, and virtual workplaces. Read More
