P2P – Point to Point can take the form a physical link between to separate networks that are run directly by cable or through dedicated switched networks not connecting to the web. However in the modern communications field, the connection type is also used to describe other mediums, typically line of sight laser or microwave. Importantly P2P is seen as linking specific end-points only to each other, rather than using the public internet and routing the traffic. This means that the 2 networks can use their own inherent packet transfer and security protocols to protect their data. It also adds the benefit of improving speeds and stability when connecting large networks together to create large private networks. These can add benefits of universal control, and lower the cost of communications using voice-over the connections as well.
MPLS – Multiprotocol Labelled Switching is considered to be more of a technique based connection that enables the routes of data travelling the network to be designed to flow in a particular way by labelling the data. This allows a network to be created by controlling the path that is used across the internet to reach a given destination. The route can be chosen to give shorter, quicker connections with lower latency between points at a network level. In effect, it means that a network can be considered private, while still using the public internet to join the points. Additionally public internet access can be granted by any of the connected nodes in the network. This means that the connection is secure, while also giving point to point ability. If you wanted to find out more about either of these technologies and how they can benefit your business, please just get in contact and we can help you through the process of discovery and implementation.
Bring Your Own Device – User-owned devices have exploded onto networks everywhere, with new iPads, Androids, and smartphones connecting every day. It’s imperative to keep network access secure and apply device-specific policies without opening security holes or causing an undue support burden. Urban Network’s solutions offer built-in support for BYOD making it easier than ever to securely support user-owned iPads, tablets, smartphones, and laptops – without extra appliances, licenses, or complex VLAN configurations.
Security Management – Integrated network access control (NAC) prevents unmanaged devices from spreading viruses on the network. All commonly affected devices are scanned, ensuring antivirus software is installed and running. Clients that fail to meet antivirus requirements can be placed in a quarantine, where Anti-Virus software can be downloaded. Enterprise-class access points allow the latest security levels to be deployed, and with the ability to broadcast and manage multiple WLAN’s, access can be granted only to what you want clients to access.
