Network monitoring software packages require complex installation, ongoing maintenance and additional costs for servers and third-party applications. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) network monitoring alternatives greatly simplify implementation and maintenance, but they rely on uninterrupted Internet access to function, often require complex VPNs or firewall modifications, and typically provide limited access to historical data.

Though legacy open-source email network applications like sendmail and postfix are widely used, the escalating demands of today's enterprise environments have outpaced their capabilities. Large organizations must now look to implement a true enterprise mail transport platform to support the standards of their current and growing business. Learn how to modernize your email system now.
Class of Service (CoS) functionality can help optimize network performance. For a successful deployment, network designers should identify all applications, understand requirements associated with each application, designate appropriate mapping for groups of applications and provide mechanisms in the underlying network to deliver CoS. CoS mapping and deployment are important; adhering to tested strategies and avoiding common misconceptions helps IT managers advance optimization across the wide area network.

Rising demand for multimedia applications and mobile usage requires new paradigm to shift voice-oriented cellular architecture into data-oriented networks in order to serve bandwidth hungry packet based applications which include but not limited to multimedia gaming, mobiTV, streaming media, P2P, etc. Data oriented network requires 20-fold fatter air link and backhaul as compared to typical voice communication.
Today’s web and application infrastructure continues to expand applications for e-commerce, and communications with customers, partners and internal employees. For those responsible for deploying, maintaining and supporting these networked applications, there is an increasing need to get the highest performance out of datacenter equipment, while simplifying the complexity that causes excess overhead and unnecessary costs.
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is used to perform file transfers over Internet Protocol (IP) networks such as the public Internet and corporate intranets. FTP is widely deployed and is widely accepted as a file transfer solution. However, are there downsides to using FTP for file transfers? This paper compares FTP with file transfer methodologies of Signiant's software applications and identifies the shortcomings of FTP that Signiant was designed to overcome.
The NETCONF protocol is a modern building block for device management automation, offering a unified approach to network configuration, rather than a device-specific methodology. To equipment vendors, NETCONF is a way to standardize the management interface of network elements. To service providers, NETCONF is a way to optimize the administrative workflow, by moving management intelligence out of the device under management, and consolidating this management into higher-level applications.
Network management systems must adapt to meet the requirements of next generation networks. For example, a user interfaces may need to be refreshed with a state-of-the-art Web interface or support for the NETCONF protocol may be required to help customers deploy scalable networks. Adding functionality and integrating with existing applications and data stores has multiple trade-offs in terms of development time and system efficacy.

Today’s Wide Area Networks (WANs) are experiencing increased saturation with the deployment of bandwidth-intensive applications, increased numbers of users, and the need for reliable security transmissions. IT personnel responsible for these issues acknowledge the increased congestion and have strived to maintain high levels of network performance. At the same time, IT departments are tasked with the job of lowering the cost of network infrastructure and ongoing operations. Network administrators continually face the challenge of balancing the increased use of critical applications on the Internet, while eliminating downtime and congestion from affecting user quality and day-to-day business operations.
For the IT personnel responsible for deploying, maintaining and supporting these networked applications, there is an increasing requirement to get the highest performance out of network equipment, while simplifying the complexity that causes excess overhead and unnecessary costs. However, there is hope. Download this white paper to learn how to achieve efficiencies and competitive advantages through affordable, yet feature-rich WAN optimization technologies.
To achieve greater productivity, employees at headquarters, telecommuters, business partners and customers must all have unhindered access to critical applications. Any delay in delivering these applications can cause user productivity to suffer and adversely affect business profitability. WAN link controllers are an affordable solution for ensuring the optimum performance, reliable delivery and protection of applications. They optimize network bandwidth and ensure the delivery of critical applications. Download this white paper to learn how to achieve efficiencies and competitive advantages through the adoption of affordable, yet feature-rich WAN link controllers.
Hype and hope — Big Data has generated a lot of both. Thanks to an abundance of enterprise information systems, networks, applications and devices that churn out huge volumes of information, government agencies are awash in Big Data. Add to this data growth the emerging trend of the Internet of Things (IoT) — the network of people, data, things and processes that is increasingly linked through automated connections and sensors — and the future of Big Data can seem quite daunting.

Core network services, which include name resolution (DNS), IP address assignment (DHCP) and management (IPAM), are used by just about every networked application, which these days includes pretty much every non-trivial application.
When data center technology such as servers or storage area networks are aligned with specific applications or organizational departments, the result is often inefficiency. Through data center convergence, IT resources can be managed more easily.
