Industries and enterprises deploying wireless were much concerned about securing data transmitted using wireless networks. S3 NetSystems has the experience and history of securing wireless communication via deploying the latest encryption and authentication security standards.

WAN Optimization

Many enterprise corporate, banks, educational institutes and government departments rely on some kind of WAN technology to interconnect the geographically dispersed sites.

It is very important to know what type of traffic is being transmitted and what bandwidth it consumes. In many cases, a single application can consume much of the bandwidth leaving other applications struggling for the remaining WAN capacity.

Many IT managers think of buying more bandwidth to cater for performance degradation, this always means additional cost and the problem could still be there unsolved.

The Solution

Network administrators should have the right solution that enables them to analyze the traffic on the WAN link and to control the way applications are carried over WAN links.

S3 NetSystems solution is based on products that enable enterprise IT managers to detect all applications that traverse the WAN link in real time manner and to know how much bandwidth each application is consuming.

The gathered data can then be reported in tabular or graphical format for further analysis. The solution provides a technology that detects repetitive traffic flows and reduces it by eliminating data patters that repeat themselves over and over.

The result is the same WAN link with increased performance and less traffic congestion. The QoS/DiffServ parameters set by network edge devices allow different levels of priorities based on those values.

It is also possible to set bandwidth limits based on application types so that no single bandwidth-hungry application can monopolize the majority of the bandwidth.

LAN & WAN

Emerging technologies and the Internet are driving new business and communication opportunities at a rapid pace. Your network infrastructure, both Local Area Network (LAN) and Wide Area Network (WAN), is the foundation enabling these opportunities for your business. Whether you are integrating new technology with legacy systems, upgrading hardware and software (routers, switches, servers, etc.), performing bandwidth optimization or prioritizing network traffic, the challenge remains the same: balancing high performance and availability with reasonable costs.

Wireless

Today's business spins around the sharing of files and resources. Traditionally, this could only be achieved by physically connecting to the network using cables. Cables infrastructure is considered to be the best solution from reliability and security perspectives, however, in many situations deploying wires might become very costly and restrictive; the site construction, obstacles and furniture arrangement can stand in the face of implementing a practical and cost-effective wired environment. Here where Wireless LAN (WLAN) technology comes to fill in the gaps.

WLAN technology liberates network users from plugging and unplugging to the network, with WLAN users can take their network resources wherever there is wireless coverage, thus increasing productivity and minimizing time and money waste.

Wireless LAN Applications

Depending on the requirements, WLAN can fit from for simple home application to share a Fast Internet connection gateway to Enterprises of thousands of users.

Some of Wireless Applications are listed below:

  • Connecting sites that are few miles away from each other, the alternative solution is to rent the expensive telecom links such as ATM or leased lines
  • Providing LAN connectivity to places where Wires are difficult to implement due to geographical or construction obstacles
  • Providing Internet and E-mail access to user in hotels' and hospitals' lobbies
  • Providing database and applications' access to warehouse and stores employees
  • Setting up temporary network access in places such as conferences and seasonal camps
  • Providing network and internet services for exhibitions and showrooms
  • Providing services for passengers at airport waiting halls
WLAN Performance

IEEE 802.11b has gained reputation for its 11 Mbps for the past few years, but as the number of WLAN users increase, the 11 Mbps became a performance bottleneck due the large data files of today's heavy applications and the bandwidth demanding streaming media downloads of the internet.

The IEEE 802.11g tried to save the situation by providing double the bandwidth (22 Mbps) at the same frequency (2.4 GHz), while IEEE 802.11g preserved the investment made in the IEEE 802.11b components, it partially solve the problem of bandwidth limitation inherited in the 11 Mbps technology.

Recently, the IEEE 802.11a has defined new generation for wireless access by providing 54 Mbps throughput. With this speed, mobile users can benefit from like-wired performance. The 54 Mbps can accommodate with most bandwidth hungry and multimedia applications.

WLAN Security

The IEEE 802.11b introduced the Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) protocol as its standard for securing wireless access. It is well-know that WEP keys can be compromised easily, thus new set of security measurement has been taken to secure wireless access and make it a safe media for file transfer and data exchange.

IP Telephony
