Cloud computing network primer
The definition of cloud computing changes readily, so the definition of cloud computing networks changes as well. Ultimately, the goal of cloud computing – regardless of model – is to create a fluid pool of resources across servers and data centres that enable users to access stored data and applications on an as-needed basis. Learn how here.
WAN bandwidth optimisation tools and techniques primer
The key to making the most of wide area network (WAN) links lies in grooming and reducing the traffic that travels across them, and in avoiding as many potential sources of delay as possible. This tutorial teaches you how to do just that.
Deploying 802.11n for improved WLAN performance
This exclusive series by Lisa Phifer examines how deploying 802.11n can improve your wireless LAN's (WLAN) performance enabling mobility services that make workforces informed and productive. To be competitive, workers need ready access to data, people and tools for collaboration and decision making. By deploying 802.11n you can extend your network to deliver multimedia over wireless making services like unified messaging and video conferencing available wherever needed.
Exploring LTE architecture and services drivers
This four-part Telecom Insights guide takes a detailed look at how 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) architecture and technology planning and deployment decisions should be influenced by LTE service opportunities in various wireless markets, as well as why carriers need to evolve their metro network infrastructure toward an Evolved Packet Core for wireless broadband and how changes in metro network technology and operations are being driven by these issues.
