Network Computing covers an abundance of technologies that are vital to designing and running a successful IT infrastructure. We focus on the details of networking so you can make informed buying decisions.


              Intranet / Extranet / Internet

Building a corporate "intranet" is a broad topic. It's the kind of subject that forces us to look at many different infrastructure and security technologies, including VPNs (virtual private networks), firewalls, authentication methods, identity management and intranet applications, like collaboration tools, messaging software and portals. But even more important, this topic forces us to focus on big-picture items. How can we use technology to equip our co-workers to do their jobs better? How can we provide information to the right people when they need it to help them make better decisions? How can we foster an atmosphere of collaboration that helps diverse groups of people develop great ideas together?


             Security / LAN / WAN

What are the big-picture considerations? Security includes technologies that help protect intranet services from internal and external attacks from the transport layer through the application layer. The transport layer tends to get the most attention, especially when you consider the two linchpins of security -- firewalls and VPNs. The aim of security is to keep the bad guys out and let the good guys in.


            Voice / Video

What is Voice-Data-Video?

Voice. These systems include private branch exchanges (PBXs), voice-mail systems, key telephone systems, interactive voice-response units, predictive dialing systems, channel banks and associated power supplies. Voice distribution consists mostly of unshielded twisted pair (UTP) copper-category 3 or better-but fiber-optic cable (usually single mode) is very common for multiplexed trunking or remote shelves.

Data. These components include routers, modems, switches, servers testing equipment and associated power supplies. Data distribution consists of high quality UTP copper-enhanced category 5 or better-fiber optics, both single mode and multimode, and any legacy networks connected with coaxial, twin-axial or shielded twisted pair (STP) or STP copper.

Video. In this category are media-retrieval systems, content-delivery systems, satellite receivers, cable-television amplifiers, video sources such as DVD players or VCRs video servers and associated power supplies. Video distribution can be accomplished over TUP, STP, fiber-optic or coaxial cabling. Each distribution method has its benefits, but usually only one media type is used. The most effective -while providing a very high bandwidth-is still RG-6 cable with "F" connectors.
