Future-Proofing the Wiring Closet With Resilient and Scalable Modular Switch/Routers
Source: Force10 Networks
Wiring closets in the enterprise LAN are undergoing a number of significant changes. Perhaps the most important transition stems from the emergence of the enterprise IP network and IP/Ethernet LAN as the converged infrastructure for both data networking applications and real-time communications applications. This convergence is driven not only by the cost reductions achievable through network consolidation, but also by the productivity gains that can be achieved through innovative linkages among communication and data applications, resulting in converged applications such as unified messaging.
