What providers provide
I was wondering whether firms providing broadband services would also consider
providing redundant connectivity? In your opinion, does a company that offers
a bundled package of all its broadband offerings including redundant connectivity,
Dear Greg Dewhitt
All broadband service providers build a fair amount of redundancy in their systems.
It is considered a basic business need to be up and running 24x7 (or at least
as close to that as possible).
In my opinion all broadband service providers have put redundancy
in their systems in the form of multiple links, clustering, load balancing,
and business continuity measures.
How to set up a LAN?
Could you please tell us how to set up a LAN on our campus. If possible, please
include the documents and literature required to understand the equipment required
for the LAN.
Dear Dipak Bunde
Our cover story this month is dedicated to the setting up and deployment of
LANs and WANs in enterprises. It includes an article on campus connectivity.
I hope you will find the articles in this issue informative, and sufficient
to answer your questions.
Reader friendly writing
The article on broadband through copper is
fantastic. It is a well structured overview, with no
confusing terminology. It also explains DSL technology perfectly. There is so
much advertising on broadband
technologies on the Internet it can be difficult to find any actual information.
I found this article quite easily through google.com and have recommended it
to my class. It provided me with the basic understanding I required for my third-year
networking research assignment.
