As your business changes so does your network

As Your Business Changes, So Does Your Network

Networks must be able to readily adapt to today’s applications…

You Can’t Solve New Problems with Old Tricks

  • Our world is changing

    • From the Information Age to the Information Anywhere Age

    • Application performance is key

  • More of the same won’t work

    • Won’t scale

    • Not flexible

  • Efficiency demands that you maximize what you have

Flexibility

  • Consider Layer 2 vs. Layer 3

    • Layer 2 services = Routing Control

    • Legacy protocol requirements

    • Simple sub-network management (i.e., Systems Integrators)

    • Desire to leverage less costly CPE

Network topology in practice issue objective

Network Topology in Practice: Issue & Objective

Department of Protective Services: State wide system, 3 large facilities

Legacy Solutions: TDM private lines. Previous network solution was not scalable nor did it meet replication and latency needs

Scalability, replication and latency concerns


Network topology in practice waves

Network Topology in Practice: Waves

Each site stores and replicates data

Data replication requires sub 70ms

Network Solution: Diverse Waves connecting three sites with Jumbo frames

Why It’s A Good Fit: Highly secure and scalable solution, met low latency requirements, cost effective for the 3 locations, can effectively meet data replication requirements


Network topology in practice issues and objectives

Network Topology in Practice: Issues and Objectives

Workforce Solution Provider: Training system, metro area, 10 sites

Legacy Solution: T1 point to point connections between all regional workforce site, hard to scale and prioritize applications as they acquired to locations/applications

Slow to Scale,Application QoS Issues


Network topology in practice vpls

Network Topology in Practice: VPLS

Department of Labor & Training Centers have 1 Gig connection

Achieved lower latency with VPLS

VPLS

Network

Network Solution: Full mesh VPLS network, point to point for data center

DR site has point to point connection

Why It’s A Good Fit: Cost-effective, highly scalable solution, Ethernet enabled lower latency given the market, highly reliable


Network topology in practice issue objective1

Network Topology in Practice: Issue & Objective

University System: 20 Sites, across state, rural & metro

Legacy Solution: Legacy ATM/Frame difficult to scale from a bandwidth and location standpoint.

Non-Redundant, Slow, Over Capacity Network


Network topology in practice mpls

Network Topology in Practice: MPLS

2 Metro campuses linked with point to point

Ave Max 35ms latency

MPLS

Network

Main University linkedto Data Centers with Dark Fiber

Network Solution: MPLS, some point to point for major metro locations, dark fiber for data center connectivity, Internet at all locations

Why It’s A Good Fit: Cost-effective solution, achieved 35ms latency, connects all locations with scalability, can layer on additional services easily (i.e., Voice, Internet)


Creative destruction is key

Creative Destruction is Key

  • Change is here, now...

    • Big Data

    • Video

    • Cloud

      ...and more of same isn’t going work.

  • Apply Creative Destruction

    • Rethink your options

    • Look for solutions that will work with your existing network

  • Find a service provider that is willing to help you innovate


Key takeaways

Key Takeaways

  • There is no one size fits all network solution – architect a network tailored to your unique needs

  • Plan for the future – flexibility, redundancy, and scalability are critical

  • When choosing a service provider, consider network assets in your locations, breadth of solution offerings and partner affiliations

  • Develop a partnership with your service provider - reliability, customer service, innovation are keytraits
