With the advent of iSCSI as the standard for networked storage, businesses can leverage existing skills and network infrastructure to create Ethernet-based SANs that deliver the performance of Fibre Channel—but at a fraction of the cost. iSCSI enables block-level data to be transported between a server and a storage device over an IP network. An iSCSI initiator is hardware or software that runs on a host and initiates I/O to an iSCSI target, which is a storage device (usually, a logical volume) that responds to read/write requests.

WAN optimization is a widely used technology that improves the efficiency of network data transmission. SafeNet Ethernet encryptors are Layer 2 (data link) appliances that secure traffic at wire speeds across wide area Ethernet services to provide protected information transmission. This paper discusses the scenario where both encryption and optimization are used across a WAN and the design considerations required.

SafeNet CN high speed network data encryption devices are purpose built hardware appliances that secure data transmitted across Layer 2 networks. The CN series platforms provide highly secure, full line rate transparent encryption for data moving across both dark Fibre and metro, or wide area Ethernet networks in point-point, hub & spoke, or any meshed environment.
The quick-service restaurant industry continues to be a favorite among consumers who look to the sector for a wide variety of food served quickly and at a low price. The speed and efficiency of QSRs, which include the emergent “fast casual” restaurants, match today’s on-the-go lifestyle of consumers across all ages who often are too busy to cook at home.
That said, consumers expect their dining experience at a QSR to be comfortable with conveniences ranging from WiFi connectivity to ordering kiosks and dining area entertainment on large screens or even tableside tablets. They expect the information on menu boards to be accurate and up-to-date and their meal orders to be fulfilled quickly and accurately. Technology is a major enabler in meeting consumers’ expectations while simultaneously helping QSR locations increase operational efficiencies and quality of service.
Hospitality is a customer-focused industry, with a hotel brand’s reputation and ultimate success dependent on the quality of the experience of its guests. It is no surprise then, that digital transformation efforts within the hospitality sector are focused on technologies that improve the guest experience, from check-in to check-out and everything in between.
Today’s travelers are digitally savvy, using their smartphones and mobile devices for a multitude of tasks. They expect a high-quality connection throughout the property and the ability to perform certain tasks from the hotel’s app, such as checking in and choosing their own room. They expect in-room entertainment beyond basic cable and in-room digital devices they can use to order food, book a massage or control the lighting, for example.
Retail has been transformed by technology in multiple ways, from the way customers interact with retailers to how products are offered and acquired. Indeed, the entire shopping experience has been redefined and expanded to enable customers to purchase products anytime, anywhere, with any device, from any number of retailers.
Consumers’ changing shopping behaviors and their reliance on technology enables retailers to reach a wider swath of potential buyers, moving well beyond the borders of their physical store locations to new geographies and populations. That said, retailers must understand how to use technology effectively to draw in customers and entice them to purchase, as well as help them improve their operations and enable new, innovative ways to keep customers coming back.
The vulnerability of Wi-Fi and conventional wired Ethernet networks is nothing new. But the new Firesheep Wi-Fi attack tool has opened the vulnerability up to others, putting sensitive information within the easy reach of even casual hackers. Learn what you need to do to protect your company from these attacks.

Examine the three broad challenges that Financial Services Institutions (FSIs) face today: compliance and risk management,
consolidation and innovation. To address these effectively, FSIs require an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) infrastructure that offers both the security and reliability of their legacy communications systems as well as the flexibility and scalability that new generation networks provide, in order to adapt and innovate in the highly competitive financial services environment.
Wi-Fi is about to get a reboot. New 802.11ac Wave 2 products will make it possible to deliver LAN-like multigigabit speeds over the wireless network for the first time, enabling previously unimagined scale and flexibility in the enterprise workspace. But how will businesses capitalize on this new capacity when most current Ethernet access cabling maxes out at 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps)? This white paper:
? Introduces the new generation of Cisco® Catalyst® switches with Multigigabit Ethernet technology, the first platforms to combine support for multigigabit wireless speeds with full power over Ethernet (PoE) in an easy-to-deploy solution.
? Shows how Cisco Catalyst Multigigabit Ethernet switches use NBASE-T technology to empower you to deliver 5-Gbps speeds over your existing access cabling.
? Details how Cisco Catalyst Multigigabit Ethernet switches gives you the scale and capacity you need today, while protecting your network investments for the future.
Cisco’s Catalyst WS-C2960X-48TD-L and WS-C2960XR-48TD-I Gigabit Ethernet switches were evaluated by Miercom under the Certified Green program for power consumption and energy Using a 1518-byte frame size with 100% Layer 2 traffic load, testing showed both switches to be 55% more efficient in power consumption, measured in Watts/ Gbps, than the Industry Average efficiency. Overall environmental impact and business-enabling green benefits of the Layer 2 and Layer 3 switches were also analyzed.
