ShowNotes: Protocols for Growth

- January 20, 2010 - 4 Comments

Welcome to the ShowNotes for Episode 59 on ‘Protocols for Growth’ – if you have not seen the show, you can get to it here.  

Rich multimedia content being served up to hungry and demanding users reflects both the present and future of your network. TechWiseTV reveals the top four protocols you must master for success.

UPDATE FROM TODAY’S SHOW: The Telepresence Certifications track was mentioned and we had to fix a link  – so sorry about that!  You can learn all about the two new Telepresence Certifications at www.ciscolearningnetwork.com or more go here.

 

On to the notes….

Like it or not, traffic on your network will only increase, driven largely by the seemingly insatiable demands of video and other bandwidth-intensive, latency-sensitive applications. What can you do now to prepare your network for this inevitable growth, without investing in new hardware or more bandwidth?

We show you how to future-proof your network by mastering four vital networking protocols: IPv6, multi-cast, 802.11n, and GetVPN.  Learn proven migration strategies, traps to avoid, and how to assess your individual needs. Find out how to prepare your network for growth as we reveal:

  • Three proven ways to run IPv4 and IPv6 simultaneously, and why you should consider a pilot deployment now
  • Why multicast is so critical to a dynamic, media rich network and how you can use it to your advantage
  • Why 802.11n takes wireless networking to a whole new level of control and management and how to take advantage of its benefits
  • How to avoid the trade-off between network intelligence and privacy with Group Encrypted Transport VPN.
  • How these four protocols can be implemented into a successful network design you can live with.

Segment 3: Mastering Multicast

Not normal wired multicast…but new wireless capabilities. Why multicast is so critical to a dynamic, media-rich network and how you can use it to your advantage.

Guest: Jagadeesh Narayanaswamy

UPDATE: Most of this hit the press just yesterday – the technology ‘official name’ is VideoStream.  The Cisco info, including a couple of good white-papers and a study from Miercom you should check out: www.cisco.com/yourideasinmotion

Press:

Extending video over Wi-Fi has certain challenges compared to wired networks. These challenges arise because Wi-Fi introduces a set of network performance characteristics-including variable data rates, packet loss, and multicast unreliability -that work against some of the traditional approaches to guaranteed quality of service (QoS). To understand the fundamental challenges of video over Wi-Fi, it is important to understand the characteristics of each of these factors.

  1. Great show again. No doubt that such protocols are needed with nowadays uses of networks.

  2. Yeah! Thank you Matt!

  3. It's spey-shuh (pronounced the same way we say special"" in the south). Sorry Jimmy Ray but he got you on that one."

  4. Sometimes students have assignments to accomplish the already written essay just about this good topic. But lots of them are not very good research paper writers. Hence, what should they do in such case? Some specialists recommend to buy a paper in the creative writing service."
