Good Ol’ Token Ring

December 30th, 2014 by
trngLarge numbers of network administrators are confronting the fact that their tried-and-true technology may no longer meet their needs Not long ago, Token-Ring technology was ferociously battling Ethernet for network domination. But now Token-Ring is fading into oblivion, done in by its high price and lack of a high-speed migration path. Because millions of Token-Ring connections are now in place, the change will be gradual, but more and more corporations are seeking ways to dump their Token-Ring networks. For companies moving into new offices or opening branch offices, the time may be right to make a complete switch. For others, the technology represents such a large investment that the transition will take years. But studies show that few companies now consider Token-Ring strategic and many believe it is just a matter of time before they swap it out. Token-Ring’s bleak…

Layer 3 Switches: Still The Gold Standard

December 21st, 2014 by
l2swLayer 3 switches can slash router latency, but the current lack of unified industry standards necessitates cautious deployment of the technology Reducing router latency is one of the top priorities of many network managers, so the industry’s crazed rush to deliver Layer 3 switching technology is not surprising. Unfortunately, little agreement has been reached on a unified Layer 3 switch design, and it doesn’t appear that standards are looming in the wings. Because of this lack of uniformity, we urge network administrators to take only cautious steps toward implementing this new technology. Those desperate to deploy Layer 3 switches should start from the outer edges of the network, rather than overhauling the backbone with products that might not fully interoperate with installed infrastructures or future standards.…

Desktop Videoconferencing: Once Huge, Now Skype’d Away

December 4th, 2014 by
dskvNetwork managers, fearful that videoconferencing would consume excessive amounts of network bandwidth, have relegated this function to specialized-room systems with ISDN connections. But now, thanks to faster networks and the new H.323 videoconferencing interoperability standard, videoconferencing is coming to the desktop. Although desktop ISDN systems have been available for a while, IS managers have been reluctant to spend money to bring in additional ISDN lines. But things are changing: LANs are much faster, and LAN switching systems allow administrators to segment traffic, isolating videoconferencing data so that it has less impact on the network. In addition, the international videoconferencing standard H.323, which recently became available, is designed for use over packet networks such as LANs and the Internet. With H.323, packet-based backbones, such as the Internet or a private corporate intranet, can accommodate videoconferencing, eliminating the need for a specialized…

Sometimes, Avoiding The Popular Product Works

November 29th, 2014 by
tgypWhen Paul Morgan began evaluating push technology products last January, he had one top priority: anything but PointCast. Like many a corporate Webmaster, Morgan had experienced firsthand the pitfalls of the wildly popular screen-saver-cum-automatic-newsfeed, including high bandwidth consumption, interference with user productivity applications and the distraction of ads. There had to be a better way. As Web site engineer for GTE Corp.’s Information Services Division, Morgan was looking for a way to push out project-management information to GTE’s staff in a real-time, noninvasive way. Project-management data is crucial for systems integrator GTE, which services government and private industry. Morgan wanted critical information such as a certain financial threshold being reached (for example, a project about to go over budget) or changes in project deliverables…
