Local Area Networking

A Local Area Network (LAN) is a computer network covering a local area, like a home, office, or group of buildings. Current LANs are most likely to be based on switched IEEE 802.3 Ethernet running at 10, 100 or 1,000 Mbit/s or on Wi-Fi technology . The defining characteristics of LANs in contrast to WANs are: their much higher data rates; smaller geographic range; and that they do not require leased telecommunication lines.

Ethernet Services for Multi-site Connectivity: Security, Performance, IP Transparency

White Paper Published By: Comcast Business     Published Date: Mar 24, 2015
Interconnecting three or more sites across a metro or wide area network has traditionally been accomplished via a hub and spoke network topology using Private Lines, Frame Relay or IP VPNs over the Internet. Ethernet services support hub and spoke topologies but also support an “any-to-any” network topology similar to a LAN but delivered over a wide area. This latter capability is unique to Ethernet services and cannot be cost effectively delivered using legacy point-to-point technologies such as Frame Relay or IP VPNs. This paper discusses two options for multi-site connectivity using Ethernet services. One option discusses the classical hub and spoke topology using Ethernet Virtual Private Lines (EVPL). The other option discusses the “any-to-any” topology using an Ethernet Private LAN (EP-LAN) service. Through examples, the paper illustrates the capabilities of the two approaches and their benefits.

Network Intelligence – A New Approach to Network and Device Management

White Paper Published By: BlueCat     Published Date: Aug 20, 2013
To enable always-on application access and business connectivity, you need a rock-solid network foundation. The increasingly complex, dynamic and fluid relationship between networks and devices requires a new approach to IP Address Management (IPAM) – one that unifies mobile security, address management, automation and self-service to provide actionable network intelligence and a broad span of control. This paper discusses the critical role of IPAM in providing a smarter way to connect mobile devices, applications, virtual environments and clouds.

Evaluating Blade Servers for Your IT Infrastructure

White Paper Published By: Hewlett-Packard     Published Date: Aug 02, 2013
When rack-mounted servers first appeared on the scene in the 1990s, they offered considerable advantages over the behemoth boxes they replaced. Their small, standardized footprint went a long way toward making data centers easier to manage. In the ensuing decades, form factor size and compute power have had an inverse relationship. Their universal standardization earned them the nickname “pizza box” servers, and it was a key driver of the scale-out computing model popular in the early 2000s. Populating a rack of eight servers and either clustering them or implementing failover from one to the other was far easier than previously possible.

Key Considerations for Leveraging Visualization and Keeping Your Applications Available

White Paper Published By: SunGard     Published Date: Aug 13, 2012
Today's IT organizations are faced with the daunting task of optimizing all aspects of their departments, including people, processes and technology. Optimizing and streamlining server utilization through virtualization represents one particularly exciting example. We found that one of the most popular usage models for virtualization is to drive down server procurements in development, test and production environments. When this model is followed, future server purchases are avoided; instead, new workloads are established on existing systems.
