Edge-To-Core Networking Solutions

Edge devices are routers , routing switches, integrated access devices (IADs), multiplexers, and a variety of metropolitan area network (MAN) and wide area network (WAN) access devices that provide entry points into enterprise or service provider core networks. Edge devices also provide connections into carrier and service provider networks.

Based on the principles of industry standards and multi-vendor interoperability, ZTech solutions can be incorporated into existing networks without disruption, bringing new levels of flexibility, security and simplified management.

Wired Network and Wireless Network Expertise

Ethernet and wireless networks each have advantages and disadvantages; depending on your needs, one may serve you better than the other. Wired networks provide users with plenty of security and the ability to move lots of data very quickly. Wired networks are typically faster than wireless networks, and they can be very affordable. However, the cost of Ethernet cable can add up -- the more computers on your network and the farther apart they are, the more expensive your network will be.

Wireless networks have an advantage of reduced cost. Not considering the running cost (which is also reduced), if you look at only the initial set up costs, every desk today has at least three ports – 2 for voice, data and one for redundancy.

Contrast this with the wireless network – You may need one access point every 15 to 20 desks. And perhaps one cable going back to a single port of the distribution switch. So, the cost reduction of a wireless network is huge. But there is one factor we need to include – the cost of the controllers and extra functionalities in a wireless network. This could run into considerable amounts.

To what level can a wireless access can be implemented in an organization. Can we totally remove all the cables? No. Wireless, as of today is popular only in the edge network – For the end users to access the network through their laptops, PDA’s, PC’s etc. The backbone network is still wired. You need access points to be placed in ceilings for nearby users to access the wireless network. But these access points need to be connected to the wired LAN, a wired backbone.
