Software Defined Networking (SDN) is changing the way networks are managed and designed. In this article, we take a look at how an SDN approach can be of great benefit to VoIP and video telephony deployments in particular.
Have you ever chosen to use a telephone to communicate even when a video conferencing system was available? If so, it’s probably because video conferencing systems have traditionally been difficult to configure and relatively cumbersome to use. This is no longer the case, thanks to Konftel’s simple video solutions.
Konftel has launched a series of video conferencing kits with a unique and extremely attractive One Cable Connection capability. We take a look at these solutions in this article.
A major challenge inherent in designing and maintaining an enterprise network is the administration costs. Software Defined Networking (SDN) can dramatically reduce both the hard costs (money) and soft costs (time) of managing a network. Although this tends to be the most compelling argument in favor of using SDN, it in fact offers may more advantages than this. In this article, we introduce SDN and examine some of its key benefits.
5G is emerging onto the telecom landscape. What’s new and different about it? 5G does indeed promise phenomenal potential. In this article we examine 5G and its applications for unified communications.
Don’t just be good at what you do; look good doing it! That’s the philosophy that inspired Konftel when it designed its new 800 SIP conference phone. Chock full of innovative features, this new phone is well designed, exceptionally functional, and looks great – and it has the awards to prove it! In this article we review what we love about this robust conference phone.
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.
