Where the Cloud Touches Down: Simplifying Data Center Infrastructure Management

Thursday, July 25, 2013
10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET

In most data centers, DCIM rests on a shaky foundation of manual record keeping and scattered documentation. OpManager replaces data center documentation with a single repository for data, QRCodes for asset tracking, accurate 3D mapping of asset locations, and a configuration management database (CMDB). In this webcast, sponsored by ManageEngine, you will see how a real-world datacenter mapping stored in racktables gets imported into OpManager, which then provides a 3D visualization of where assets actually are. You'll also see how the QR Code generator helps you make the link between real assets and the monitoring world, and how the layered CMDB provides a single point of view for all your configuration data.

11ac Does Not Equal 5G

January 17, 2013 05:10 PM
A major wireless vendor wants to tag the forthcoming 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard as 5G, even though the G designation is traditionally associated with cellular networks. What gives?

United Oil Cuts the Wires

January 15, 2013 12:55 PM
United Oil Co., which operates 127 gas stations in Southern California, is abandoning DSL service in favor of 4G to connect its retail locations to headquarters.

Broadcom Enables Programmable 100-GbE Switches

April 25, 2012 09:00 AM
With Internet back-haul switches being asked to handle exponentially more traffic, most service provider and Internet back-haul networks are going to completely skip over the 40 GbE step and go straight to 100 GbE. Broadcom has introduced a new line of switch processors that can be reprogrammed to add new functionality to the switch and support new protocols as they come along.

Mobile Data Meets Infrastructure--The Time Has Come

April 17, 2012 09:00 AM
The usual scenarios discussed for mobile data tend to involve either single-user connectivity or mobile hotspots, and rarely get into the notion of using mobile links for "important" business connections. But that is changing, as more manufacturers work the value afforded by fast-enough carrier-provided network connections into their feature sets and more customers buy in. Whether used in a primary service role, or more commonly as wireless failover, 3G and 4G data links provide some interesting options to those who build networks.

4G? No, It’s More Like 4Gee!

March 26, 2012 09:00 AM
Have you actually held a 4G device in your hands while it does a speed test? Has your brain struggled to reconcile the numbers displayed at the end of the test with the fact that you’re connected to a mobile network and not Wi-Fi? Have you felt your reality get pleasantly rocked in a way that left you a bit confounded over the numbers that your device was showing you? This 4G stuff is simply amazing.

Juniper Routers Deliver 3X More Traffic

February 07, 2012 09:00 AM
Juniper Networks claims its new line of universal access routers for use on service provider networks can deliver three times the throughput of competitive offerings. The routers are called "universal" because they provide network access for mobile devices, residential broadband and business networks. However, the initial rollout of the Juniper Networks ASX Series of Universal Access Routers is expected to be with mobile service providers building 4G, also known as LTE, networks.

Prepare The Mobile Ship For Ludicrous Speed!

January 29, 2012 12:30 PM
Thinking back on the 1987 movie "Spaceballs," I picture a comical Dark Helmet standing on the bridge of his ship. In my mind, he holds a smartphone and contemplates the latest buzz on mobile network speeds, fresh from the International Telecommunications Union. As he ponders the 100-Mbps data speeds soon to be delivered by his preferred carrier, he utters the order, "Prepare for ludicrous speed," and the ship IMT-Advanced warps off to hyperspace at an impossibly crazy velocity. Speeds in the mobile data world are about to get quite exciting.

No One Uses GPS, Do They?

September 27, 2011 12:53 PM
There are some technologies that you just don't monkey with. Running water, for example. And the global positioning system that is the enabler to about a zillion different location applications found in many aspects of modern civilized life. But courtesy of newcomer 4G wannabe LightSquared, a somewhat exotic mobile network technology threatens to lay functional waste to millions of consumer, commercial and military GPS-enabled devices.

Getting To Know 4G

July 21, 2010 10:30 AM
Just like 802.11n was a world-shaker in the WiFi realm, mobile telecommunications networks are beginning to experience a significant leap forward in capability. And just like with the "artistic marketing license" taken by WiFi 11n makers (9 times the old stuff! 6 times bigger this and that!), you have to dig through the PR to figure out what's really coming with the new 4G (4th Generation) mobile networks.
