For most organizations these days, WAN connectivity is so mission-critical that investing in a redundant WAN infrastructure is well worth the extra cost and effort. In this article, we explore the available options for WAN redundancy so you can help your customers decide which is the best for them.
Many administrators resist implementing VoIP over Wi-Fi, often citing security and quality concerns. The truth is that if implemented correctly, voice can be safely and reliably deployed on a wireless network. This article examines some best practices for optimizing voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi).
Yealink has partnered with Zoom to provide a complete conferencing solution integrated with Zoom Rooms that is sure to be a hit with customers who are looking for a robust, cost-effective video conferencing solution that is easy to use. In this article we look at Yealink’s CP960-UVC50 and CP960-UVC80 Zoom Room kits for conference rooms large and small.
The choice of WAN technology and how it is deployed have a huge impact on the reliability and quality of voice services. For this reason, precautions must be taken to optimize WAN services for voice. In this article, we review best practices for achieving this.
Wi-Fi itself should not be feared as a technology susceptible to network attacks; it is a flawed implementation that should be feared. Because of the nature of the technology, Wi-Fi signals can be easily intercepted by any wireless device within range. Nevertheless, with the proper security precautions in place, these intercepted signals become useless to even the most determined attacker. By employing industry-standard security measures, Wi-Fi becomes an enterprise-grade high-performance solution suitable for almost any application.
In this article, we examine the the most pervasive threats to Wi-Fi networks and the best ways to mitigate them.
In today’s business environment, coordinating teams of people working on a multitude of projects and tasks can become complicated. This is why collaboration tools are so important to streamlining cooperation and increasing efficiency. Yealink has developed a series of products that maintain a deep integration with Microsoft Teams, the software giant’s communication and collaboration platform. Yealink has the widest range of Teams-certified voice and video devices on the market. In this article, we review Yealink's T-series IP phones, certified by Microsoft for use with both Teams and Skype for Business.
For those familiar with commercial-grade WAN technologies, connecting the internal network to the outside world may seem straightforward. However, large enterprises with thousands of employees and internal services whose existence depends on connectivity require more advanced WAN technologies, which can be far from simple. In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the most common high-grade WAN technologies and the characteristics of each, to help you decide which is right for you.
Whether you’re preparing to deploy a new wireless network or upgrade an existing one, understanding wireless network design and deployment strategies is essential. In this article, we describe some strategies and best practices for getting the most out of your Wi-Fi network.
An enterprise network is not truly functional unless it is connected to the internet. The types of technologies that can be used for network edge connectivity can broadly be separated into two groups: commercial-grade and high-grade WAN connection technologies.
The distinction between the two has to do with available speeds, reliability, services, and cost. High-grade WAN connectivity technologies include Metro Ethernet and MPLS, while commercial-grade options include cable and xDSL.
In this article, we examine the commercial-grade WAN technologies (cable and xDSL), how they function, and their most typical implementation scenarios.
