At the same time, Lucent is clearly eschewing 3Com's traditional networking market, while Cisco is targeting LAN's and homes. 3Com's stock will churn as the market digests its distribution of its 94% share of Palm stock. Obviously, it will add greatly to its own US$950M cash reserves, but 3Com's rivals dwarf even Palm's US$54B market cap. Hmm. Well, Cisco's San Jose headquarters are only about five miles away from

IP Telephony 201: The Nuts and Bolts of VoIP


In IP Telephony 101, I looked at the pros and cons of IP telephony, and a few of the considerations you should explore before making the switch to VoIP. We’ll turn now to the nitty-gritty of VoIP systems: the architecture, the equipment, the network structure, the software, and what you can expect to pay. But before we start, let’s get WAN and LAN out of the way. A LAN (local area

If a network is cursed with low redundancy, a connection failure from or to one computer can have a dramatic effect on all the computers on the network. Full redundancy, while the most reliable option, is also the most expensive, since full redundancy requires more routers, more wires, and (potentially) more software.

A hosted Internet protocol private branch exchange (IP PBX) system can provide an easy way for small to medium businesses (SMBs) to move to voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) and get a new range of features and capabilities.

What's Wrong With Application Software? Businesses Really Are Unique - One Size Can Never Fit All


Does your company do things exactly like your competitor? Does your company do things like another company who is a totally different business? For some applications, the answer is YES, but for most they answer is either, NOT VERY or NO WAY. Then can we expect any single application product to be the best for all companies?

Many of the added functions apply to only a few of the various industries addressed meaning Read More

Looking for a Better Way

Mobility in Wholesale and Distribution: A Way to Be Lean


Continuing with some of my observations on the TEC blog regarding the adoption of mobile technologies among different industries, one developing niche in mobility that is quite interesting to look at is wholesale and distribution—not just because of how much this market represents in monetary size but also because of the potential benefits mobility brings to an industry which heavily relies on

Product Configurators Pave the Way for Mass Customization


'Mass customization' is the buzzword of the current decade. Customers demand products with lower prices, higher quality and faster delivery; yet they also want products customized to match their unique needs. A product configurator that enables manufacturers to efficiently deliver customized products by automating product configuration processes is one of the key promising technologies in implementing mass customization.

The engineer-to-order configuration extends beyond the build-to-order configuration; here each component type is also associated with a pre-defined set of Read More

Secure Information Sharing for Layer-two Networks: Delivering Security without Complexity


Although layer-two networks are a viable, cost-effective alternative to traditional wide area network (WAN) services, they have some major security deficiencies. One of the key drawbacks of layer two is its inability to handle identity authentication—which creates serious theft and vulnerability problems. With a layer-two data protection solution, however, you can mitigate these types of security issues.
