VoIP uses internet protocol data packets to transfer voice, fax, and other data over the shared network, rather than the traditional public switched telephone
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.

Service organizations must manage and track all expenses related to time and people in order to remain profitable (or, in the
Buyer's Guide to Enterprise Storage Resources
Organizations of all sizes face similar challenges when managing storage@not enough capacity or protection. Help has arrived with Internet small computer system
with 10Gb/sec Ethernet over copper. At 10Gb/sec, iSCSI offers a faster pipe than FC, and will continue to hold that edge even when FC gets to 8Gb/sec in a couple of years. However, iSCSI was never just about performance. The elevator pitch for an iSCSI SAN is that it saves money by using Ethernet; but what users really like are the features they get automatically with iSCSI SANs'load balancing, snapshots and more, says Stephen Foskett, director of strategy services at GlassHouse Technologies Inc.,
IBM’s Marketplace Solutions: Is Ariba Not Enough?
IBM trains its sights on helping businesses create online marketplaces. But, we ask our staff prognosticator, isn’t that what partner Ariba does?
running on the new copper RS/6000 models. TEC: That's true. That's a marketplace that will eventually support 300,000 IBM employees buying from 14,000 suppliers. But Dr. Augur: Wait. You were going to protest that this is just an internal marketplace, weren't you? TEC: No, actually we were going to ask you to find out what happened to the coffee. But, yes, you're right about this being internal to IBM. It isn't the same kind of thing that the WebSphere Marketplace Edition does. Is that the important
The Demarc Extension and Its Role in the Enterprise Network Telecommunications Infrastructure
Demarc extensions have been a recurring gray area in the telecommunications industry for years. There is often misconception when it comes to who actually
which involves continuity for copper cabling and decibel losses for fiber cabling. This does not provide the storing of data or printout capabilities. When performing low level cabling tests, it is recommended to provide a test form to the onsite tech to complete for your records. This will provide documentation and a reference point as to the condition of the demarc pre-wire at time of installation, when the telecom circuit is down. Circuit Testing The requirement of a demarc extension is to interface

Mill Industries: A Generic ERP Challenge
Mills are factories where value is added to raw material by processing it into a form suitable either for further manufacturing, or for immediate end-use
quantity of the commodity (copper, for instance) at each stage. Also analogous to processing sheets, one needs a quick identification and reservation of the best master reel for a given cut-to-length order, with the ability to optimize cutting to make full use of each reel, as well as subsequent provision of the proper certifications and conformance documents, barcode labels, packaging, shipping papers, and other information the customer needs along with the product. Similar requirements hold for

Mining & Quarrying
Mining is the extraction from the earth of materials used in different human activities (industry, trade, energy production, etc.). There are four major types
uranium, etc.); base metals (copper, iron, etc.); and building materials (stone, sand, gravel) extracted from quarries, which are open-pit mines. There are two major types of activities specific to the mining industry: exploration, which involves the search for materials; and extraction, which is the activity of getting those materials out of the earth.

IBM’s Unix Servers Eclipse Sun
IBM’s latest RS/6000 server, the high-end S80, outsold Sun Microsystems’ E10000 by almost three-to-one in the fourth quarter. Who cares – it’s the performance
field by moving its copper technology to the midrange servers, starting in May. We're going to take that same technology and move it further down in our family, Kerr said. Market Impact We don't really care about a single quarter's sales figures, especially when some significant part of it probably results from pent up demand for a product, as well as being compared to a year-old product. Sales figures over the course of a year are much better indicators whether IBM is truly taking it to Sun. IBM
