The Battle Of The Bandwidth

After an epic 15 year reign at number one, 10G tools begin their descent down the charts of network infrastructure, making way for the rise of “hot” 100G technology.  Iconic sensations like big data infrastructure and the explosion of bandwidth-intensive applications in large enterprises dropped the bass for 10G networking tools. Cisco, a preferred partner of Garland technology, released the Bidirectional 40G Fiber Connectivity, a real crowd-pleaser to help bandwidth accessibility.

Network Monitoring with Differentiated Services (DiffServ or SDCP)

on 11/17/16 8:30 AM By | Timur Ozcan | 0 Comments | TAPs vs SPAN Cisco Solutions
Most network engineers are familiar with how to configure a SPAN port on a switch. This is a common way to get access to the network data to perform network analysis and connect various packet capturing monitoring tools to it. When considering packet capture and monitoring of voice-over-IP (VoIP) traffic, it is important to keep in mind that VoIP is highly susceptible to packet loss, latency and jitter and is a frequent area of network troubleshooting. So let me ask you. Besides configuring a SPAN port, do you know the importance of the mirrored data quality in packet analysis?
