May 30, 2012 09:51 AMThis year's disaster recovery study from AT&T finds that 67% of the 504 respondents are including wireless network capabilities in their business continuity plans, while 38% are investing in the cloud.
May 07, 2012 10:05 AMHuawei is using Interop to stake out a bigger slice of the U.S. enterprise networking market, introducing a new data center switch, distribution agreement and smartphone offerings.
April 12, 2012 09:00 AMIn this second installment of a three-part series on WAN optimization (the first examined visibility), Network Computing looks at the security tools that protect a network so it can deliver data, video, voice, cloud applications and all the other traffic it needs to send on its way.
March 27, 2012 01:40 PMCarriers like AT&T and Verizon Wireless are using data caps to manage the explosive growth in 3G/4G data consumption. Hey, kids--the 1990s called and wants its bandwidth management strategy back. As Lee Badman points out in "4G? No, It's More Like 4Gee!" the data rates available to wireless consumers are growing rapidly and our demand is keeping pace. When you have high demand and data caps, the chance of overages is very likely, and the last thing anyone wants is out-of-control telecom costs. Consumers don't have much choice in managing data caps, but enterprises have more options.
February 13, 2012 09:00 AMNicira, which has just emerged from stealth mode, says it has cracked the code to deliver true network virtualization. The company claims its Network Virtualization Platform brings the capabilities and benefits of server and storage virtualization to the network, addressing what has been a physical barrier in the path to further virtualization progress. The news has been heralded as a "game-changer" and "the biggest change to networking in 25 years," and a number of major companies such as AT&T, eBay, Rackspace and Fidelity are paying customers.
February 08, 2012 11:00 AMWhile the Internet Society (ISOC), a global Internet standards-setting group, has seen a pickup in adoption of IPv6 by some measures, conversion from the IPv4 standard is still relatively slow. The ISOC has scheduled another IPv6 Day for June 6, hoping to build on the momentum for adoption of the new Internet Protocol from IPv6 Day on June 8, 2011. In a three-part series, Network Computing will look at how companies can develop a road map for IPv6 conversion, the technical implications of running IPv6 on an existing IPv4 network, and what compliance and security issues have to be addressed in a transition.
July 21, 2010 10:30 AMJust 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.
July 02, 2010 11:25 AMA significant percentage of U.S. smartphone users aren't using data at all, while the top 6% of users are gobbling up half of all data consumed, according to Nielsen. Released this week, a study of 60,000 mobile phone bills found a huge disparity between heavy data users and the many smartphone owners who use their handsets almost exclusively just for voice calls and texting.
June 15, 2010 03:00 PMEnterprises are slowly starting to get their hands around IPv6 and what it means for their organizations, but service providers have been thinking IPv6 for years now. And what should a service provider be talking about when it comes to IPv6? We went to the beast itself and had four IPv6 leaders -- AT&T, NTT, Qwest and Verizon -- grade their own industry about the Dos and Don'ts of IPv6.
