The Future Enterprise

The Future: Live at Technology Senate

If you thought Technology Senate is just technology talk, you are mistaken. The Future Enterprise is a live futuristic network demostrating cutting edge technologies

The future enterprise pavilion of Technology Senate 2004 showcases the hottest enterprise technologies in action. This year, the main highlights of this technology demonstration will be cutting edge technologies like voice & data convergence, self defending networks, and mobility. Here is an insider’s perspective of some of the components that will make up this futuristic network.


  • Secure IP VPN using token ID: This will include the demonstration of a laptop getting connected to Datacraft's corporate LAN to access email, SAP etc using a secured IP VPN connection over the Internet.
  • Central logging: Using the Network Intelligence (NIC) appliance, logs can be collected from CheckPoint firewall, McAfee Intrushield IPS and Nokia IP 330 SSL appliance.
  • Intrusion management: Using McAfee Intrushield.
  • Perimeter defence solution: Using Check Point on the Resilience appliance.
  • Mobility Solution: Demo of Nokia One Business Server using the web or GPRS enabled mobile phones to show capabilities over the internet.


Email archival management: The e-mail solution will be set up using a mix of EMC, QLogic, StorageTek and Legato with Intel servers.

This solution will enable an enterprise:

  • To have unlimited mailbox size (no personal archives on local machines).
  • To keep the mail server resources at a predetermined standard without any further updates/upgrades.
  • To retrieve deleted e-mails
  • To compress e-mail storage thus saving on storage space

The demo will include recovering deleted e-mails, Web based access to Exchange server, and replication of Exchange data.
