  1. Data Transitions: Management, Storage, Cloud and Convergence Beth Kohler, Director | Global Data Product ManagementJune 26, 2012

  2. Is your network a little like this? Acquisition Voice Data Center Mobility

  3. As Your Business Changes, So Does Your Network Networks must be able to readily adapt to today’s applications…

  4. Short- and Long-Term Trends Impact the Network SIP Video SIP Voice Collaboration Mobile Applications Cloud Methods Key Trends BYOD Interoperability Tech Refresh BIG DATA Efficiencies IT Implications Anywhere Access Application Growth Cloud & Virtualization Security Audit Performance Portals CRM Projects & Outcomes Analytics & Reporting GROWTH Reliable Efficiency Secure Control Agile Connected Low Latency Network Req’s

  5. Evolving Needs of WAN • Video

  6. 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

  7. Service Providers Offer A Full Spectrum of Private Networking Alternatives … But Which WAN is Best for Which Situations? Bandwidth Characteristics Technology Preferences CUSTOMER BUYING FACTORS CUSTOMER BUYING FACTORS Efficient Growth and Scalability Solution Cost

  8. Networking Capabilities

  9. Product Flexibility & Scalability

  10. Technology Preferences, Desired Level of Control MPLS VPN Private Line EVPL VPLS Traffic Mgmt & Routing Control Least Most MPLS VPN VPLS / EVPL Private Line Dedicated vs. Shared Dedicated Shared MPLS VPN/ EVPL Perceived Maturity of Technology Private Line VPLS Cutting Edge Mature

  11. Summary of Technology Other Factors Private Line EVPL & VPLS MPLS VPN Perceived Maturity Customer Control Security/Privacy Multi-Service Capabilities Deterministic SLAs 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

  12. Connectivity Options & Applications

  13. 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

  14. 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

  15. 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

  16. 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

  17. 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

  18. 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

  19. 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)

  20. 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

  21. 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
