Small Businesses and the “Good” Home Tech

There are two sides to the story when it comes to choosing what network cabling to install for your home computer network. Large business networks that are used to download large amounts of data to and from several different locations within the network often need the same type of network cabling that is used in the office. However, choosing the right network type for the office and the home can be quite a challenge. The two sides of the debate can be broken into two basic categories; type of cabling and grade of cable. The grade of cable and the type of cabling will be considered, in this article, to be comprised of three basic types of cable: Category 5e, Category 6, and Category 5e. Most readers will be looking at the first or second category, but not both.

This hierarchy is based upon the type of network cables used to connect the network elements. The five elements of the network cable hierarchy are broken into two groups of elements. These groups are labeled as follows;

storyline: elements one through five are referred to as elements 1 through 5, respectively. They are the basic building blocks or infrastructure of a network and are easily recognized by the typical installation of network cabling. Elements 6 and 5e are the newest elements of the hierarchy and are composed of 6 optical fibers and 8 electrical conductors. They are designed to deliver high-speed optical signals to the office, home, or data center.

While it is possible to use Category 5e cable (also referred to as Category 5e or 100-Base-FX) to connect a computer to the network, most computers are able to connect to a Category 5 network without much difficulty. If the network is designed or installed as a managed network, the operation of the computer is managed by the network appliance. This means the network provider has full administrative control of all computers connected to the network.

The role of network cabling in a network is to:

:: Horizontally separate the data traffic from other network traffic

:: rearward edge of the data traffic to the edge of the network

:: send the data packets onto the physical network

:: reel off the network appliances from the physical network

:: classify and prioritize the traffic

:: limit the data transmission to the number of devices with which the data transmission can occur

2. Use the VLAN concept to divide the network into functional group.

A network appliance can be a device that performs all of the given functions and tasks necessary to service a network. The network cabling device is considered as a tool or hardware that meets the Lync basic functionality requirements. The device should allow for basic communication with the network and bring into play the common features in the Lync communication. For Lync to perform at its peak, it must have all the functionality needed to manage communication between devices and also bring about integration between devices and software across the network.

A VLAN controls the communication between two segments of computers on a segment. VLANs consist of two segments: a connection segment and a broadcast segment. Connections segment has two segments, each capable of carrying a particular protocol. One of the segments is known as the trunk segment and the other one is known as the core segment. Core segment contains one protocol. Hosts and servers are installed on the same segment. They are connected using the trunk segment. If the trunk segment is not connected to any other segment, the communication in this segment is configured by using the protocol that can be configured on the server. The PDU (Power Distribution Unit) comes in the form of a router. It manages the power to the segments and distributes it to the different segments.

In order to have full security for the network, the administrator needs to implement biometrics and virtual key cards. Physical security is taken care of by the router while virtual key cards ensures that only authorised people can access the valuable data stored in the server. The Virtualization of Data Processing, based on Virtual Private Networking and server security is a major technological breakthrough that provides businesses a comprehensive solution for addressing both scalability and security.
