Overall increases in CPU and DRAM processing power are falling behind the massive acceleration in available storage and network bandwidth.Storage management services are emerging as a serious bottleneck.What does this imply for the datacenter of the future?How will it affect the physical network and storage topologies?And how will storage software need to change to meet these new realities?Read more >
Network Managers have a tall order in IT organizations today. Typically, they are tasked with two conflicting business directives:
1. Deliver optimal end-user experience for networked applications
2. Reduce the operational cost of the network, or reduce the IT budget
But the knee jerk approach of “throwing bandwidth at the problem” while potentially improving end user experience, is hardly the answer to cost management and network optimization.
In this webinar, we will discuss the challenges that result from the common approaches utilized today in capacity planning and, outline a new way, comprised of 4 actionable steps to optimizing the bandwidth you may already have.
Buyers are are often confused by the billing methods used by data centre service providers of bandwidth, Dirk-Achim Tellbach of wusys GmbH de-mystifies measurements of traffic volume, data transfer, data transfer rate, GB ,Mbps, Mb, MBit, averages and 95% percentiles so you can know what is what, and how it is measured, how can it be compared and, most importantly, empowered to make informed choices.Read more >
Following the fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) trend to deliver more bandwidth to consumers, a new technology is emerging that promises to provide more bandwidth, more services and future-proof networks to enterprises. Passive optical LANs are changing the way we think about designing the local area network. This webinar will provide an introduction to POL technology, compare POL and traditional Ethernet switching architectures, and review the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) standards applicable to the design and testing of POL solutions in order to address considerations such as splitters, connectors, signals and more.
Join us for this webinar to learn more about the following:
- The latest standards and market trends related to POL solutions
- A detailed overview of POL solutions and their main benefits
- The differences between traditional structured copper cabling and POL solutions
- Elements requiring testing and available solutions
Reclaim Your Network Bandwidth with Application Intelligence and Control Companies of all sizes have now integrated Web 2.0, social networking and streaming media applications into their organization in some capacity. This new technology has proven to be a cost-efficient and highly efficient way of extending communications, improving collaboration and driving revenue. In fact, Recent research* shows that 80% of the Fortune 500 companies have now adopted social networking-with over 45% engaging in blogging activities. Like any new technology, the challenges are equal to the benefits.
These hungry bandwidth applications are robbing organizations of bandwidth, productivity, and confidential data, putting them at risk of regulatory noncompliance. Management and prioritization are key – Application Intelligence and Control is the answer. Join this Web Seminar to learn how Application Intelligence and Control can allow you to maximize the business value of Web applications while preserving valuable bandwidth, increasing productivity and minimizing risk.
Managing physical connectivity layer in any data center is a challenge. In today’s fiber-rich, highly complex, ultra-high density environment of data centers it can seem virtually impossible. So more data centers are relying on automated infrastructure management (AIM) solutions to track and manage their growing network.
Join intelligent connectivity expert Michael German of CommScope for a look at the strategies behind the deployment of AIM systems in data centers
Do you currently deploy separate solutions for antimalware and antivirus protection? Wouldn’t it be nice if you only had to deploy and manage one solution to handle all your endpoint security needs? When you’re stuck managing multiple solutions, you also have to deal with the additional hassles of higher costs, poor productivity, reduced availability and uptime.
Join us as we address the challenges and frustrations admins typically face, and demonstrate how next generation cloud-based security can offer a simpler, more effective solution to managed endpoint protection.
In just a few short years, the connected world will experience explosive growth in bandwidth demand, an evolution in wireless technology, and a threefold increase in the amount of power transmitted through IP networks. New technology currently under development will be needed to support future generations of devices and applications. Is your infrastructure designed and built with advanced technology that will hold up to these future demands? Attend this webinar to find out. Topics to be discussed include:
- A brief look back on the evolution of technology (Did you realize that before 2010, iPads didn't exist?)
- Bandwidth explosion, more power over Ethernet and an evolution of wireless (Your network infrastructure will be expected to support it)
- Berk-Tek's proprietary new method of measuring how a network responds to the stress and strain of technology still under development
RingCentral, a leading cloud-based business phone system provider, will be hosting a live Computer-side chat about networking requirements for a hosted VoIP solution for your business. Andy Thompson, Sales Engineer, will lead the conversation, answering frequently asked questions about what it takes to be ready Day One when moving to cloud VoIP. Don’t be fooled by his title, Andy’s not a Sales guy, he’s one of the RingCentral tech experts brought in pre-purchase when you’re ready to go geek and talk tech. Michael Risano, Tier 3 Support Team Lead, will also weigh in, and man the Chat feature, answering individual questions and kicking over hot topics for Andy to address to the whole group. As a key member of RingCentral’s support team, Michael knows what can trip you up and how to fix it – from router choices to carrier questions and what to do when the Internet goes down.

The dynamic nature of content, computing and global flow of information is now placing unprecedented pressure on content providers and data center owners to plan, deliver and operate a Terabit-scale ready cloud infrastructure. But key questions must be addressed in terms of what, when, where why and how they should be implemented.
This presentation/case study evaluates a real-world content provider's requirements and their need for elastic bandwidth. Furthermore, the presentation will review best practice recommendations including 100G ready cloud infrastructure, GMPLS based intelligent control plane for automation and restoration, and how to best leverage WDM with integrated digital switching and bandwidth virtualization to enable elastic bandwidth.
Almost every organization is challenged by the increasing need for more bandwidth. Cloud-based services, content-rich applications, and access to internet sites is putting more and more strain on the limited pipes coming in to your data centers. WAN Optimization had been the tool of choice to connect and manage branch office traffic. It's now more and more being used to bridge multiple Internet connections for organizations large and small to create more bandwidth in and out of their data centers. Traditional WAN Link Load Balancing has evolved from simple back up and VPN connectivity to a robust traffic management tool that seamlessly adds bandwidth using virtually any ISP technology. In this webinar you’ll learn the basics of Hybrid WANs, what they and Link Load Balancing can do for your organization, and discover more about Fortinet’s Hybrid WAN solutions.Read more >
