How virtualization revolutionizes VoIP deployment

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Nov 6, 2019 10:52:00 AM

Redundancy and scalability are important for VoIP systems. Virtualization makes both of these easier, less costly, and more efficient. Coupled with cloud services, virtualization has revolutionized how network services are provided, and in particular, how VoIP deployment is executed.

In this article, we explain what virtualization is, the trends governing its newest technologies, and how all of this can be leveraged for use with VoIP services.

SDN: The cutting edge of network design

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Oct 9, 2019 10:50:00 AM

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.

Know your stuff: Commercial-grade WAN technologies

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Jul 24, 2019 10:52:00 AM

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.
