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.

Yesterday’s fat access points and legacy wireless LANs typically can’t handle mission-critical, real-time applications, nor do they have a migration path to 802.11n. Aerohive Networks has developed a new controller-less architecture that provides an innovative way to handle tomorrow’s wireless challenges – like voice over WLAN and migrating to 802.11n – without costing you a fortune. This paper discusses the benefits of this approach and the key underlying technologies of cooperative control, including best path forwarding and policy enforcement at the edge.

Are you looking to reduce the operational cost of your existing wireless LAN, and to make it support mission-critical, real-time applications and 802.11n? At the same time, are you challenged with the cost and complexity associated with most next-generation wireless LAN architectures? Check out the enterprise-class, cost-effective new cooperative control architecture from Aerohive Networks. In this real-world case study, you’ll see how Aerohive Networks' cooperative control architecture combines the linear cost modeling of autonomous APs and the operational advantages of controller-based approaches.

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.

A wireless network can help your employees stay productive as they move around your company. But to take advantage of the benefits of wireless networking, you need to be sure that your network is safe from hackers and unauthorized users. Every device in a wireless network is important to security. Because a wireless LAN (WLAN) is a mobile network, you need a thorough, multilayered approach to safeguard traffic.

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.

Email, calendaring, collaboration, and mobility solutions are moving from corporate data centers to service provider networks. Service providers can realize far greater economies of scale than most businesses and deliver higher levels of service to more users at a lower cost; in fact, the fewer the users, the higher cost for each. Concentric Hosted Exchange is a fast, reliable and affordable solution for email, calendaring, collaboration, and mobility based on Microsoft® Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Microsoft Outlook® 2007. Concentric Hosted Exchange provides all of the benefits of Microsoft Exchange and Outlook 2007 without the up-front infrastructure costs or ongoing overhead.

The status quo in network monitoring is no longer adequate for large organizations. It's simply taking too long for enterprises with mission-critical networks to resolve and find the root causes of network incidents. To speed things up, enterprises must add dedicated incident response and root cause analysis capabilities that are 100% accurate and reliable to their network management arsenals.

BIG-IP devices have long been a tool for applying "rolling upgrades" to the applications and systems that sit behind the BIG-IP device. With Live Install, this "stage->reboot->go live" sequence can now be applied to the BIG-IP device directly, creating a rolling upgrade scenario like those of the application systems behind it. Live Install also enables snapshot versioning for future versions of the BIG-IP system, a critical feature for both production and testing environments.
