This complexity adds administrative overhead, can result in an inconsistency of system performance, and increases the probability of downtime due to human error.

One way to manage this complexity is to use the concept of configuration management (CM). In this article, we describe configuration management and show you how it can help streamline your VoIP, data, and ICT infrastructure lifecycle as a whole.

Network function virtualization (NFV) and its benefits for VoIP

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Jan 8, 2020 2:51:04 PM

In today's virtual world, telecom and network services have come a long way, from being offered using locally installed, standalone monolithic servers to ethereal entities residing in the cloud. This evolution has touched every part of network service provisioning, and one of the most fascinating facets of this trend is that the network infrastructure itself can be virtualized.

Network function virtualization (NFV) is a network architecture philosophy that virtualizes the network infrastructure. In this article, we take a look at what NFV is, how it works, how it fits in with other virtualization technologies, and how it can be of benefit for enterprise networks.

The cloud is used to offer services directly to the end user, as well as to provide a platform on which vendors can develop their online applications (including VoIP) for their customers. In a previous article, we covered SaaS, PaaS and IaaS as the three most prominent cloud-based models that are used to offer services to clients. In this article, we take a more in-depth look at the various cloud deployment models that are available (including private, public and hybrid) and how they are useful for businesses of different sizes. The article concludes with the factors to consider when choosing which deployment model to use when offering VoIP and other cloud services to your customers.

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.
