Limited bandwidth, long distances and poor network quality prohibit cost reductions for today's critical IT initiatives. Your IT organization needs WAN optimization that can be deployed anywhere, on any platform, and for the lowest cost. See how the new Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization Controllers can help.
Hyper-complex production meets cognitive computing. Electronics manufacturing is surrounded by continuous complexity. Executives face rising resource costs in traditionally low-cost production markets. They must address increasing customization, shorter lead times, frequently changing requirements and shrinking order sizes – all while managing a sophisticated supply network. They need to examine automation potential and maintain critical institutional knowledge. Thinner margins and increased competition threaten consistent quality, risk greater downtime and reduce desired flexibility. Investments in new equipment and automation systems are increasing the amount of data available from the shop floor, but most is not used to its full potential. Now, cognitive manufacturing is transforming production to address such complexity.
Application-aware Network Performance Management (AANPM) practices and products provide detailed insights into exactly who is using which resources, what quality of experience is taking place, and where to look when things go wrong. Such information can significantly improve planning, monitoring, and troubleshooting efforts.

With all of this pressure from the marketing world, how does a publisher continue to provide the relevance and reach needed to appeal to advertisers? Read this whitepaper and find out how building Instant Networks will help you grow your revenue.
A powerful signal integrity analysis tool must be flexibility, easy to use and integrated into an existing EDA framework and design flow. In addition, it is important for the tool to be accurate enough. This report reviews a validation study for the Mentor Graphics HyperLynx 8.0 PI tool to establish confidence in using it for power integrity analysis.
The move to 4G LTE networks promises much to the world of mobile computing: speeds ten-fold faster than 3G to enable HD video quality, faster online gaming, mobile video chat, and more … but from the communication provider’s perspective, LTE’s advances also come with higher levels of uncertainty. The videos in this interactive menu show how IBM’s Integrated Service Management for LTE delivers an integrated offering that provides visibility, control and automation over LTE networks and services.
Cisco engaged Miercom to conduct a competitive analysis of its Catalyst 2960-X switch versus two comparable Hewlett-Packard switches from the 2920 and 5120 product families. Miercom executed comprehensive hands-on testing and evaluated the performance of some widely deployed features that are critical for reliable functioning of enterprise networks. The test methodology focused on specific areas in which Cisco believed there were key competitive differentiators between the products. Test results validated include throughput, latency, energy efficiency, stacking, LACP load balancing and Quality of Services (QoS) performance. Miercom found that the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X demonstrated superior performances against the competitive switches in the tests featured in this report.

Connection Speed versus Connection Quality is a crucial issue for measuring bandwidth performance. A fast connection speed by itself can render more application deliver problems (such as VoIP), than a slower connection with consistent throughput.
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.
This white paper describes the surveillance video multicasting technology, highlights the benefits of IGMP as well as its integration in Korenix devices for assuring high quality video communication in surveillance applications.
