Data Transitions: Management, Storage, Cloud and Convergence

Beth Kohler, Director | Global Data Product ManagementJune 26, 2012


Is your network a little like this?

Acquisition

Voice

Data Center

Mobility


As Your Business Changes, So Does Your Network

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


Short- and Long-Term Trends Impact the Network

Evolving Needs of WAN

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


Service Providers Offer A Full Spectrum of Private Networking Alternatives

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


Connectivity Options & Applications


Unique Agency Systems Need Unique Networks

Law Enforcement

University System(s)

  • Metro, Regional, National

  • Intercommunication needs

  • De/Centralized IT Staff

  • Applications Used

  • IT Needs

  • Affiliations

  • Disaster recovery

  • Security - Access Req’s

Administration & Agencies

Executive & Legislative State Offices

  • Size of Staff

  • Outsource IT

  • Applications

  • Hub/spoke

  • Metro or Rural

  • Specialties

  • Affiliations

  • Security


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

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

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

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 & 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

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

  • 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

  • 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
