Cisco 3g Wan Interface Card For Verizon Or Sprint

Suitable for both backup and primary applications, the Cisco 3G WWAN HWICs support the latest CDMA and GSM/UMTS standards (EVDO Rev A and HSDPA) and are backward compatible with the widely deployed networks (1xRTT, GPRS/EDGE). The Cisco 3G WWAN HWICs are tightly integrated with the services provided on the award-winning Cisco Integrated Services Routers, which deliver secure data, voice, video, and mobility services. The Cisco 3G WWAN HWICs are supported on the modular Cisco 1841 Integrated Services Router and Cisco 2800 Series and 3800 Series Integrated Services Routers. Enterprises are looking for ways to reduce costs, increase revenue, and improve business continuity. The Cisco 3G WWAN HWICs, when coupled with a service provider wireless data plan, provide a cost-effective, rapidly deployable, reliable, and secure backup solution for remote sites and branch offices. With data rates approaching T1 speeds, 3G Networks provide an alternative to wireline backup solutions such as ISDN, cable, and DSL. In the event of a network failure, the Cisco Integrated Services Router routes mission-critical data to the Cisco 3G WWAN HWIC for transmission across the wireless infrastructure. In addition, the router can distinguish different types of traffic and allow only mission-critical traffic to flow over the backup interface. The 3G Wireless WAN HWICs are available in two different SKUs. The http://www.prodec.co.uk/blog/2013/09/take-prodec-networks-telephony-survey-win-prize CDMA SKU is called HWIC-3G-CDMA-x HWIC-3G-CDMA-V (Verizon) HWIC-3G-CDMA-S (Sprint) Primary Connectivity For applications that have low data usage but high security requirements such as bank ATMs, gas station kiosks, and telemetry sites, the Cisco 3G WWAN HWIC offers a secure, simplified, and cost-effective WAN alternative to DSL or Frame Relay.

telnet type 7 password for router 1841 (cisco packet tracer)

Finally, the entire telnet spec is almost 165 pages in length, and these are 8 1/2 x 11 typewritten pages. :-) FWIW, a telnet client will be able to negotiate all of this when it connects to the server (router in your case), unless Cisco left the negotiation protocol out of their software for binary/non-binary support, which would be a MAJOR violation of the standard and specifications. At worst it should at least tell the client that it must not transmit binary data. The default setting for the binary data transmission capability is OFF (WON'T TRANSMIT-BINARY / DON'T TRANSMIT-BINARY). 183 posts since Mar 2011 Reputation Points: 10 [?] Q&As Helped to Solve: 0 [?] Skill Endorsements: 0 [?] 1 Year Ago Huh? I don't know what you are talking about, unless you are referring to 7-bit ASCII key codes, which would make sense. I have done complete telnet implementations for real-time operating systems (both client and server side, device drivers, and all the rest of it) back in the early 1990's. According to the DDN Protocol Handbook, the official source repository for all TCP/IP specifications, in the telnet section (RFC 854, Volume 2, page 575) it says this: Page 5-578: Although a TELNET connection through the network is intrinsically full duplex, the NVT (Network Virtual Terminal) is to be viewed as a half-duplex device operating in a line-buffered mode. That is, unless and until options are negotiated to the contrary. Nowhere do I find anything that limits it to 7-bits, although that may be implied in that a telnet session can be ascii (7 bits) or binary (8 bits), and that can be negotiated (RFC 856, pages 2-595-598, Telnet Binary Transmission).

Palo Alto Networks Takes Firewalls To Next Level

Palo Alto Networks Introduces SafeSwitch for Sourcefire

He's a veteran of the traditional firewall and security industry who struck out on his own six years ago to create a product for today's Web. The company he founded, Palo Alto Networks , sells a next-generation firewall that makes modern Web services safe for the workplace and gives companies precise control over how their employees can use them. "Our customers don't want to block Facebook," Zuk said. "They want to use it, but they also want some control." As interest in Web-based software has surged, so too have Palo Alto Networks' sales. The company has hopped from office to bigger office since its birth at Zuk's Palo Alto house in 2005. This year, the company moved into a giant headquarters in Santa Clara.

Hp Lures Smbs With Tweaked Servers, Switches ? The Register

HP ProLiant ML110 G7 The HP V1410 unmanaged switch The new V1410 unmanaged switch is a basic, fanless Gigabit Ethernet switch that can mount in a rack or sit quietly on an office shelf. The machine comes in versions with 8, 16, or 24 Gigabit Ethernet ports, or with 8 or 16 Fast Ethernet (100Mb) ports. HP has rolled out a new set of chipsets for its homegrown switches, and several models in the V1410 family support the IEEE 802.3az energy-efficient Ethernet protocol, which can yield somewhere between 50 and 60 per cent power savings over prior HP chipsets for these baby switches. A base 8-port Fast Ethernet model costs $59; pricing for the other models was not available.

HP Project Moonshot hurls ARM servers into the heavens ? The Register

HP Redstone server tray A four-server Calxeda EnergyCard system board (click to enlarge) To make the Redstone, HP took a half-width, single-height ProLiant tray server and ripped out just about everything but the tray. In goes the passive backplane that the Calxeda EnergyCard, and HP can cram three rows of these ARM boards, with six per row, for a total of 72 server nodes, in a half-width 2U slot, like this: An HP Redstone server tray crammed with Calxeda ARM servers The trays slide into the 4U version of the ProLiant SL6500 chassis, and you can put four of these trays in the chassis thus: HP Redstone SL6500 chassis fully armed and dangerous to 32-bit parallel workloads That gives you 288 server nodes in a 4U rack space, or 72 servers per rack unit. That's 20 per cent more server density than the alpha test machine from Calxeda could do earlier this year with very early samples of its ARM chips. That SL6500 chassis in the Redstone system has three pooled power supplies that can back each other up and keep the nodes going in the even one of them goes the way of all flesh. The system has eight cooling fans. Each tray has four 10Gb/sec links that come off the internal EnergyCore Fabric Switch. All of these ports can be cross-connected using 10Gb/sec XAUI cables, and scaled across as many as 4,096 sockets. (By the way, 4,000 servers is pretty much the upper scalability limit of a Hadoop cluster these days.) However, the recommended configuration at first will be to use link the 72 four-server nodes in a single SL6500 to each other with the integrated fabric switch, and then glue multiple SL6500s to each other using a pair of 10GE top-of-raw switches. In effect, the SL6500 is the new rack, with an integrated top-of-rack switch, and the two external 10GE switches are akin to an end-of-row switch that usually links multiple racks to each other. That 288 server count on the Redstone system assumes that you are going to network out to external disk arrays, but you can sacrifice some servers in the trays and plug in up to 192 solid state disks or 96 2.5-inch disk drives into an enclosure.

Hp-foxconn Wave Cloud Kit Under The Nose Of Google, Facebook Et Al ? The Register

Quanta Computer, Compal Electronics, Wistron and other ODMs have a stranglehold on the cloud service provider market, accounting for some 80 per cent of shipments stateside. Companies on HP's wooing list include Google, Facebook , Rackspace and Amazon. All of the desired 20 service providers, bar three in China, are US-based, said Iain Stephen, HP EMEA veep for servers. He said HP tried flogging its Scalable systems designed for enterprises to cloud service providers, but those customers didn't require various features in the computers, such as on-board management and power redundancy. The web goliaths prefer to spec their own lightweight machines and get the custom kit built by ODMs. "The service providers at the top end see no value in that [unnecessary] technology," Stephen told The Channel. Architecturally, the cloud giants can (in theory) "absorb" a failure from one to 50 racks without service disruption due to the scale of their deployments and build hardware resilience at the rack level, the HP veep said.

HP Invests $1B in OpenStack Cloud, Rebrands Cloud OS as Helion

Bailey explained that CloudSystem's moving forward will be based on the HP Helion OpenStack release. "Helion is an umbrella brand across all of our cloud portfolio," Bailey said. Helion is the scientific name for a doubly charged positive helium ion, said Bailey, adding that the use of the term "cloud" eventually needs to go away. "Not that a brand like Helion will replace the word 'cloud,' but we need to begin to think beyond cloud and what these business solutions do," Bailey said. "We need to rise above the whole cloud hype that is pervasive across our whole industry." Linux The HP Helion OpenStack distribution is based on the recent Icehouse release. Icehouse, which debuted on April 17, includes a new database-as-a-service project called Trove. HP is one of the leaders of the Trove project and helped get it started under the name Project Red Dwarf in 2011. OpenStack as a platform needs to run on top of an operating system. For HP Helion, that operating system is Linux. HP is not partnering with any specific Linux distribution vendor, but rather is using its own expertise to build a Linux distribution as the operating system layer for Helion, Bailey said.

HP Enhances HP-UX, Rolls Out New NonStop Servers

The upgrades to CloudSystem Matrix with HP-UX include the ability to deploy larger private clouds by having workloads run vPars v6 partitioning technology or through direct I/O networking. In addition, HP is offering the solution with two-socket licensing, which will lower the cost of private clouds based on HP-UX, and with the ability to identify inefficient servers processes, which will increase data center processing capacity and enabling more resources for mission-critical workloads. HP also is rolling out two new NonStop servers for small and midsize enterprises (SMEs). Both the NonStop NS2300 and NS2400 fault-tolerant systems are powered by Intel's Itanium 9500 chips , which were launched in 2012, which HP officials said will bring a 50 percent increase in the main memory capacity, which will enable organizations to run more workloads than on previous systems. The new NonStop servers and enhancements to HP-UX 11i v3 and CloudSystem Matrix for HP-UX are available now. HP's new offerings come at a time when the Unix server market continues to shrink, with more high-end workloads running on x86-based systems. IDC analysts found that in the fourth quarter 2013, Unix server revenues fell 20.2 percent over the same period in 2012. The $1.9 billion in revenues accounted for 13.6 percent of all server revenues for the quarter.

Hp Moonshot: Say Goodbye To The Vanilla Server - Forbes

The required datacenter capacity cannot be served effectively with current datacenter and server architectures. Current enterprise data centers arent prepared for the onslaught of devices coming their way. Its not as easy as adding more homogenous, virtualized servers. Theres just not enough power or space to do this with standard architectures. Its just not efficient. This is where HP Moonshot comes into play. At massive scale, the key is to deliver the most efficient service for a specific workload. HP has created an ecosystem of specialized cartridges that can use vastly different kinds of compute engines to deliver a wide range of specialized services. These compute engines are CPUs, GPUs, APUs, DSPs and FPGAs from AMD, Applied Micro, Calxeda, Intel and Texas Instruments . Datacenters can put up to 1800 servers in a single, 47U rack, which could take 10X as many racks using a standard architecture. This extreme density reduces, per a given unit of work, the datacenter size, energy consumption, complexity and cost. HP officially launched today the first ProLiant Moonshot Cartridge with the Intel Atom 1200 processor and will roll out more over the course of the year. HP wont stop with those 5 vendors, as there are many different kinds of compute solutions that provide good specialized workload performance. These are workloads like cloud gaming, visualization, HPC applications, financial services and facial recognition.

SWaP-Optimized IP Router Targets Naval, Civil Vehicle, Aircraft Installations | Communications content from Electronic Design

A vulnerability found in the web management interface of the Cisco RV110W Wireless-N VPN Firewall, RV215W Wireless-N VPN Router and CVR100W Wireless-N VPN Router can be exploited by an unauthenticated, remote attacker to gain administrative access to the affected devices. "The vulnerability is due to improper handling of authentication requests by the web framework, Cisco said in a security advisory published Wednesday. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by intercepting, modifying and resubmitting an authentication request. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability could give an attacker administrative-level access to the web-based administration interface on the affected device. Cisco assigned an impact score of 10 to the vulnerabilitythe highest in the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)because the flaw can lead to a complete compromise of a devices confidentiality, integrity and availability. Users are advised to update the firmware of the affected devices because there are no available workarounds. The patched firmware versions are: Cisco CVR100W Wireless-N VPN Router firmware version, Cisco RV110W Wireless-N VPN Firewall firmware version and Cisco RV215W Wireless-N VPN Router firmware version Cisco also fixed five denial-of-service vulnerabilities and one unauthorized access vulnerability in the software running on a wide range of its stand-alone and modular wireless LAN controllers. The affected products are: Cisco 500 Series Wireless Express Mobility Controllers, Cisco 2000 Series Wireless LAN Controllers, Cisco 2100 Series Wireless LAN Controllers, Cisco 2500 Series Wireless Controllers, Cisco 4100 Series Wireless LAN Controllers, Cisco 4400 Series Wireless LAN Controllers, Cisco 5500 Series Wireless Controllers, Cisco Flex 7500 Series Wireless Controllers, Cisco 8500 Series Wireless Controllers, Cisco Virtual Wireless Controller, Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series/7600 Series Wireless Services Module (Cisco WiSM), Cisco Wireless Services Module version 2 (WiSM2), Cisco NME-AIR-WLC Module for Integrated Services Routers (ISRs), Cisco NM-AIR-WLC Module for Integrated Services Routers (ISRs), Cisco Catalyst 3750G Integrated WLC and Cisco Wireless Controller Software for Services-Ready Engine (SRE). The denial-of-service vulnerabilities can be exploited by sending specially crafted IGMP version 3 messages, MLD version 2 packets, ethernet 802.11 frames and WebAuth login requests to the affected devices. The attacks can force the affected devices to restart or can result in more persistent denial-of-service conditions, depending on the vulnerability being exploited. The unauthorized access vulnerability is located in code that Cisco wireless LAN controllers send to other access point devices connected to them.

Various elements of this family are coming to market now including Top of Rack (ToR) switches and End of Row (EoR) platforms. We expect the release of the Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC) in the coming months to further catalyze evaluation activity. Cisco has employed several design elements in the switch refresh. In contrast to Robisons warnings about the cloud, Leopold sees Cisco as a big beneficiary of data center build-out: When looking at the forecasted growth rates, it becomes evident for any vendor that datacenter exposure will beimportant to achieving growth above the market. In comparison to the overall switch market, the outlook for purpose-built datacenter switches is significantly more robust, with Infonetics forecasting growth of 24.8% and 13.5% for purpose-built datacenterswitches in 2014 and 2015 respectively, compared to the overall Ethernet switch growth of 5.9% and 8.1% respectively. Ciscosdatacenter interconnect switch is its Nexus 7000, and its new Nexus 9000 provides the evolution from the Nexus 5000 and Nexus2000. Heres a table Leopold offers of Ciscos opportunities in the data center with the 9000: Leopold doesnt believe rumors of Cisco cutting prices: Weve heard noise regarding Ciscos pricing strategy with some believing Cisco is reducing prices. We believe that the cost per bit processed is declining, which is normal; however, we do not believe Cisco is slashing pricing on an apples-to-apples basis. He believes Cisco can benefit from improving macro trends: A macroeconomic recovery bodes well for Cisco; we consider the forecast for improved employment as a favorable indicator, yet the slow pace of an economic recovery and poor employment remain headwinds, as do concerns about government debt both here and abroad.

VoIP Innovations Has Released a Portal Specifically Designed for the End User

Before this portal was created, the end user would need to make a call to the reseller if they wanted to purchase a new DID or add a feature. With the End User Portal, that call is completely eliminated because the end user can login to the portal and do everything themselves. End user Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) such as DIDs, Termination, E911, Origination and Porting, are also included in the portal. When looking at the End User Portal from the reseller perspective, it is understandable that they might not want end users to have the ability to purchase DIDs or add/remove features. VoIP Innovations saw this concern and created a solution that allows the reseller to pick which functions the end user is able to use.

Palo Alto Networks Pushes Next-generation Firewall Performance

Budget Center Inc., PASSUR Aerospace, Inc, Palo Alto Networks, Inc., and Lantronix, Inc Featured from Pennystocksites.com on March 10th ,2014

Palo Alto Networks wants to challenge that perception with the unveiling today of the PA-7050 , a new high-end member of the Palo Alto firewall lineup capable of supporting core firewall functions at throughputs of up to 120 gigabits-per-second. Matt Keil, product marketing manager for Palo Alto Networks, says that for a lot of organizations the PA-7050 should eliminate the need to deploy two different classes of firewalls. Given performance concerns, many organizations for years have opted to deploy traditional firewalls while at the same time deploying next-generation firewalls from vendors such as Palo Alto Networks to address specific application-level security issues. The cost of IT security goes well beyond the acquisition of firewalls. Supporting firewall platforms from multiple vendors not only requires multiple sets of skills, it increases the complexity of the number of firewall rules that need to be managed.

VMware adds NSX firewall integration with Palo Alto Networks

VMware NSX ships with native firewall functionality already, but the Palo Alto integration gives the virtual network more advanced security capabilities, said Rod Stuhlmuller, director of product marketing at VMware. The NSX firewall inspects traffic based on ports and protocols, while the Palo Alto integration adds deep packet inspection capabilities that can apply security policies based on application identification. "We'll wireless security be able to apply basic firewall capabilities using the NSX firewall," he said. "And we'll be able to steer traffic as necessary to run through the advanced capabilities from Palo Alto." The deeper visibility achieved by this integration should help align the security team with the virtualization team, Kindervag said. And this convergence of infrastructure and operations teams should help align their organizational incentives. "Security pros are incentivized by confidentiality of data while the infrastructure and networking people are incentivized by five nines of availability.

Juniper filed suit in 2011 , alleging Palo Alto Networks and its founder, Nir Zuk, a former employee, had reused technologies patented by Juniper Networks. After several rounds of discovery, the court narrowed the suit to three patents related to next-generation firewalls. We continue to stand by our position that we do not infringe on patents and are committed to delivering innovation and providing the network security market with disruptive technologies, Mark McLaughlin, chief executive officer of Palo Alto, said in a statement to Bloomberg . The mistrial is a victory for Palo Alto Networks, as it means it shall continue to operate unencumbered by litigation, marketing restrictions or licensing fees. Palo Alto partners have been monitoring the suit to see what impact it would have on their reselling and support of the market-leading next-generation firewalls. The roots of the lawsuit can be traced back to 2004 when Zuk and co-founder Yuming Mao worked for Juniper Networks.

Short Palo Alto Networks, Downside Risk Based On Upcoming Patent Infringement Trial

Palo Alto Networks Launches the Industry's Fastest Next-Generation Firewall

D. Juniper Victory on Infringement Spells BIG Trouble for Palo Alto If Juniper prevails at trial on infringement, the case is over because the court, in granting Juniper's motion for summary judgment on assignor estoppel, ruled that Palo Alto could not present a defense to infringement based on the alleged invalidity of the patents. (Palo Alto retains the right to challenge the verdict based on a theory of laches, but that is not before the court at this trial, and for purposes of what happens to the stock when the verdict is rendered will not be on the mind of most traders, as the issue has not even been briefed.) If Juniper wins this trial, it will seek monetary damages and injunctive relief. Of these remedies, injunctive relief is, by far, the more relevant, and more impactful to Palo Alto stock.

Palo Alto Networks adds virtual firewall, targeted malware protection

Second, because it has a unique single-pass architecture designed to optimize performance, the PA-7050 can provide all of this security capability at speeds much greater than alternatives in the market; this ensures business processes run smoothly and securely for our customers." -- Lee Klarich, Senior Vice President, Product Management, Palo Alto Networks The PA-7050: The industry's fastest NGFW At its inception, Palo Alto Networks set the gold standard for the definition of a high performance next-generation firewall that is architected from the ground up to protect digital assets by identifying and safely enabling all applications, including those encrypted with SSL while blocking known and unknown threats. As the newest member of the Palo Alto Networks family of next-generation firewalls, the PA-7050 runs PAN-OS(TM), the operating system that is the heart of the Palo Alto Networks platform, and supports throughput speeds up to 120 Gbps for core firewall functionality. Because of the combination of performance, scalability, and security, the PA-7050 is ideally and equally suited for: -- The data center where validation of applications and users, and threat prevention at 100Gbps or more is critical; -- The Internet gateway where visibility and control over all applications and protection from known and unknown threats are critical; and -- Internal network segments, where isolation of critical BYOD data and business functions is required. The PA-7050 features a distributed processing architecture to provide scalable performance.

Palo Alto Networks Launches the Industry's Fastest Next-Generation Firewall

WildFire was originally a cloud-based service where customers could voluntarily upload executable files for analysis. Palo Alto would identify whether the file was malware and warn customers. With WildFire Subscription, Palo Alto will offer one-hour turnaround for full protection against targeted malware. WildFire will identify executable files, source URLs and network behavior for this malware, and automatically upload protection signatures onto the firewalls of WildFire subscribers. This malware protection is more targeted than traditional antivirus technology that relies on honeynets to detect and analyze threats, Palo Alto's King said. WildFire catches threats that target its enterprise customers. "Forty-five percent of the malware we discover is not recognized by any of the leading antivirus vendors when we discover it," he said. "A lot of the targeted or unique malware isn't spread out all over the world. They just aim it directly at a target so it never hits the honeynets. These are threats that are targeting our customers today." Many other vendors offer targeted malware detection and protection, Gartner's Pescatore said. Cisco, for instance, has its IronPort and ScanSafe services.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130508/SF04701LOGO ) The amount of data travelling across enterprise networks continues to grow at a rapid rate, and enterprises need to ensure that data moves as quickly as possible to maintain business productivity. This challenge is compounded by the need to apply next-generation security throughout the network to protect against sophisticated cyber attacks. These attacks can hide in plain sight, using common applications to penetrate exterior defenses, and once inside a network, act like day-to-day traffic while stealing targeted data via applications such as FTP, webmail or veiled within SSL. Common port-based firewalls, plus simple signature-based protection mechanisms masked as next-generation firewalls cannot safely enable applications; they only block them, and further cannot deliver adequate performance with these security features enabled. The result: many organizations limit application of tight security controls, leaving their organizations at risk. Palo Alto Networks addresses this challenge head-on with the PA-7050, a powerful, yet easy-to-extend and manage next-generation firewall that is designed from the ground up to deliver performance consistency with next-generation security controls enabled. Quotes: -- "Big security news stories are a daily event as the threats facing enterprises are getting more pervasive and sophisticated.

HP Unveils New MicroServer, ProLiants for SMBs

It's aimed at businesses with fewer than 10 employees, according to HP. The system makes it easy to store, secure and share information from a central location, enhancing collaboration and content sharing among employees. With Microsoft's Windows Server 2012 Essentials offerings, the data and applications on the server can be accessed remotely from almost any Internet-connected device. The MicroServer Gen8 also takes advantage of HP's ProLiant Gen8 server features and its ProActive Insight architecture, which helps simplify installation and maintenance via HP's Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) Management Engine and Intelligent Provision capabilities, which are embedded in each server. Through iLO Essentials, businesses can remotely manage the server, while HP ActiveHealth lets them continuously monitor the system's performance. According to HP, ActiveHealth not only monitors the health of the server but also the power consumption. HP Smart Update lets users make application updates faster. HP also gives users the option of integrating the company's stackable PS1810-8G managed networking switch, giving SMBs a converged infrastructure offering that automatically discovers, monitors and speeds up the connectivity performance of both the compute and networking components. The server is powered by an Intel Celeron or Pentium processor and offers up to 16GB of memory. The PS1210-8G switch, through support for bonding or link aggregation of two Ethernet interfaces, doubles the data speeds of the previous generation of MicroServers.

Cisco Punts Massive Nexus 7000 Switch

Reversely, Cisco doesn't intend to ever support Fibre Channel directly. Although servers can see a virtual Fibre Channel SAN, it uses Ethernet cable for physical connections. Brocade says it may move to Ethernet later, but will stick to the less lossy Fibre Channel protocol for the time being. Cisco meanwhile is betting on the adoption of lossless E and Fibre Channel over Ethernet standards. But Cisco does seem to be aiming its box at the future. According to Gourlay, the company isn't expecting a replacement of hardware for the Nexus, but gradual adoption as new data centers are constructed or expanded. Actual company deployment will probably take around three to four years from now with testing and certification. And Cisco isn't abandoning the Catalyst 6500 yet.

Cisco: Battle with VMware is the Bigger Picture, Says UBS

We expect opex rationalization, share repurchases, and ongoing supply chain optimization to still drive Q/Q EPS growth on modest revenue growth expectations. On the other hand, results from other corporates thus far suggest a better enterprise spending environment in the US and Europe, including US federal, which should be supportive of the positive momentum in Ciscos enterprise sector over the past few quarters. For the outlook, he is modeling $11.18 billion and 49 cents. From a broader standpoint, Cisco has little to fear from traditional competitors, he thinks, with the greater challenge being the virtualization of everything: Much of the recent focus has been on the potential impact to Ciscos business from competitors, especially in routing, as well as architectural shifts like software defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) [...] We remain relatively less concerned about competition from Ciscos historical competitors. We have respect for all of them and we expect market shares to ebb and flow, especially against Alcatel-Lucent ( ALU ), Juniper [Networks ( JNPR )], and Huawei. Ciscos market share position in service provider routing, next-generation packet-optical, and enterprise routing (3 sub-segments with relatively more focus lately) has remained relatively resilient over the past couple of years [] A bigger challenge for not only Cisco, but the industry, is navigating the larger IT transitions occurring around DC architectures (SDN, NFV), cloud, changing consumption models, and the risk of hardware commoditization [...] We dont doubt these trends will occur over time. The key source of contention is around a) timing, b) specifics of what software-defined means and if indeed all value can be transferred from hardware to software, or whether hardware will still matter, c) organizational inertia, and d) the overwhelming focus on capex optimization when opex is a bigger pain point (75% of IT budgets) for CIOs []How much of the balance of power shifts towards public cloud providers, and will the public-private cloud distinction matter in the long-term, or will the economics for all clouds look comparable? Things are shaping up as a battle between Ciscos and VMware ( VMW ), Passi writes, and the outcome of that battle is anything Mitel UK but certain: The battle for architectural supremacy in the data centre between Cisco and VMware, with fundamentally different views of where the organizational, architectural, and management point of control will reside. In VMwares worldview, the underlying physical hardware is of less relevance (yet ironically every Cisco switch competitor is aligning with VMware), control resides in the hypervisor, and with the Server/systems teams. Cisco espouses the benefits of a tightly coupled and finely tuned hardware and software solution, enhanced by the Cisco APIC (controller), the strategic control point in the network from which policies will be managed and enforced across physical and virtual infrastructure.

HP Unveils New MicroServer, ProLiants for SMBs

It also builds in features to detect and correct errors during data transmission. The product falls more in the server category as opposed to desktops, said Richard Fichera, an analyst with Forrester Research. "They seem to contain all of the ProLiant -- HP's enterprise server line -- management extensions and thus will fit into a ProLiant server management environment," Fichera said. Hardware companies, including chip maker Intel, have talked about the microserver concept in the past. Intel showed at its Intel Developer Forum last year a prototype of a microserver that would be able to pack maximum computing power in a small, power-efficient package. Intel has provided reference designs to PC makers on how to build microservers. The microserver category so far has been hard to define, said Reuben Miller, senior analyst at IDC. Until now, the focus has been on putting a lot of processors network security together without a lot of storage, with low-power servers scaling performance mostly through cores and memory in dense computing environments.

Hp Unveils New Microserver, Proliants For Smbs

BYOD HP officials unveiled the new systems June 11, saying they are simpler to deploy and manage as well as easier to afford, which is important to small businesses that don't have the IT budget or staff of their larger counterparts. The announcement comes as HP gets its annual Discover conference under way in Las Vegas, and a day after company officials unveiled a number of new enterprise PCs . The new servers aim to give SMBssuch as retail stores and medical practicestools to scale their computing capabilities while enabling greater content sharing and collaboration among employees. Noting numbers from AMI, HP officials said that within the next five years, 5.1 million small businesses around the globe will buy their first server. They're going to look for systems that meet their particular needs, according to Mark Potter, senior vice president and general manager of servers for HP. "Small and midsized businesses require innovative server solutions that meet their specific business needs and price points to remain competitive," Potter said in a statement. "These new HP ProLiant servers are easy to use, highly reliable and cost-effective to maintain, enabling our SMB customers to boost business performance, save time and cut costs." HP launched its first ProLiant MicroServer in 2010, with the idea of giving SMBs a very compact, simple system that could handle their immediate computing needs, scale when needed and fit within their limited budgets. The new MicroServer Generation 8 is still designed to be a solid first server, and is small and quiet enough to be put onto the floor or a desk in an office space. It's aimed at businesses with fewer than 10 employees, according to HP.

Cisco Promises Fix For Ap, Router Backdoor

Cisco Linksys E1200 Wireless-N Router

internet law said it will release firmware updates to plug a backdoor found in two of its routers and a wireless access point that could provide attackers administrative control over the devices. Cisco said the previously undocumented feature was found in its WRVS4400N Wireless-N Gigabit security router, its RVS4000 4-port Gigabit security router and its WAP4410N Wireless-N access point. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by accessing the affected devices from the LAN-side interface and issuing arbitrary commands in the underlying operating system, Cisco said in an advisory it issued on its Web site Friday. An exploit could allow the attacker to access user credentials for the administrative account of the device, and read the device configuration. Related Articles Security expert snubs RSA conference over NSA payment allegations Late last week Reuters reported that security vendor RSA, which encryption solutions, was paid US$10 million by the U.S. arellano @itworldca The company said an attacker can also issue arbitrary commands on the device with escalated privileges. Security researcher Eloi Vanderberken discovered the vulnerability over the Christmas holiday, according to a report from technology publication Networkworld.com. He said he found that connecting to his Linksys WAG200G allowed a remote user to send unauthenticated commands to the device and reset the admin password. Other users later reported finding the same backdoor on Cisco, Netgear and Belkin devices. In some devices, this type of backdoor can be accessed from the Internet. Cisco said there are no known workarounds to the vulnerability. It said it will issue a firmware update this month.

Why a one-room West Virginia library runs a $20,000 Cisco router

(None use a VoIP system anyway.) Ironically, the routers can't even be used for VoIP in some key cases. The state police already have a VoIP-based phone system, but the new 3945 series routers did not come with "the appropriate Cisco VoIP modules" to work with the system. The state now has to spend another $84,768 to purchase those modules; without them, the state police can't use the routers, only two of which are actually installed and operating. (For those keeping score at home, this means that 75 $20,000 routers are depreciating in a state police warehouse somewhere in West Virginia.) The report also lays a good deal of blame on Cisco and on the company's engineer for the project. The engineer told the auditor he was simply following the state's instructions, which required him to spec out a proposal using only routers with "internal dual power supplies"hence the 3945s. As the auditor dug into the story, demanding to know when this exact request was made, the Cisco engineer said it originated with the state Department of Education.

Cisco launches app-enabled router

The new Linksys EA4500 router looks exactly the same as the Linksys E4200, but it's really a different beast. (Credit: Screenshot by Dong Ngo/CNET) While Netgear and D-Link introduced their approaches to app-supporting and cloud-enabled networking products at CES 2012 , Cisco, which didn't have anything to announce at CES, turns out to be the first to materialize the new concepts. Cisco today unveiled a line of Linksys Smart Wi-Fi routers that promises to change the face, and the body, of home networking. The Linksys EA4500, EA3500, and EA2700 -- the "A" designation being short for "app-enabled" -- look like models in the earlier E Series but have more-powerful hardware and support Cisco Connect Cloud , the next generation of Cisco Connect software. The EA4500, for example, looks exactly the same as the original Linksys E4200 , but the differences inside are significant. The new Linksys EA4500 router looks exactly the same as the Linksys E4200, but it's really a different beast. (Credit: Dong Ngo/CNET) Cisco Connect Cloud is a Web-based portal that is designed to make it possible to quickly and easily manage multiple home networks from anywhere in the world. And in the category of "home network," Cisco now includes home appliances, not just computers and electronic equipment. The company says it has been working with top device manufacturers to simplify the process of getting their network products -- such as TVs and home appliances -- connected, and to get them communicating more with one another to offer new consumer experiences.

While troubleshooting we figured out there were no issues either with configuration of physical media (Fiber optic cable), the problem turned out to with 10GBASE X2 modules. Though the distance between these two locations is hardly 250 meters and there was a multimode fiber optic cable (supports 10G) running between these two locations. Initially a Cisco X2-10 GB-LX4 module was installed at Cisco 6500 Series Switch and at the Nexus 7010 we had a SFP SR Module. Table 1.

Now that servers can be shrunk down to very compact sizes, heat is top-of-mind. If Blade Networks switches consumes 95 per cent less power than a comparable Cisco switch, which the company says they do, it taps right into what customers are after, he said. Blade Network was wise to work closely with IBM and HP, Reeves added.

The HP StoreVirtual VSA license bundled with new HP ProLiant Gen8 (generation 8) servers lets customers install a virtual storage appliance with up to 1 TB of capacity on the servers for no charge, said Dave Scott, senior vice president and general manager for HP storage. The license also allows up to three ProLiant Gen8 servers to be clustered together for a resilient software-defined storage platform with up to 3 TB of capacity, Scott said. [Related: Software-Defined Storage: Separating The Reality From The Hype ] "We expect over 1 million ProLiant Gen8 servers to be sold over the next year, resulting in customers adding about 1 exabyte of software-defined storage capacity," Scott said. The free license will give SMBs the opportunity to both leverage the virtualization capabilities of the HP ProLiant Gen8 servers and to test the concept of software-defined storage , which Scott said turns industry-standard servers from any vendor into a shared storage solution just by installing software. The bundle seems like a pretty smart move, said Rich Baldwin, CIO and chief strategy officer at Nth Generation Computing, a San Diego-based solution provider and longtime HP partner. "Everybody is hearing about software-defined network security storage, but HP can deliver it right now," Baldwin said. Once SMB customers try the HP StoreVirtual VSA, the vendor probably expects a lot of them to purchase licenses for larger implementations, Baldwin said. "This is a great way to get started," he said. "When customers see how well it works, they will buy more.

HP previews ProLiant Gen8 servers

HP The ProLiant Gen8 machines, HP says, incorporate over 150 new features that were driven by customer requirements. Mark Potter, general manager of the Industry Standard Servers and Software division at HP, said during a webcast previewing the Gen8 boxes that the company has applied for over 900 patents relating to the new technology it has developed. One of these, called Smart Socket, is a revamped Xeon processor socket that HP developed in conjunction with Intel to make sure that partners and customers who add processors to ProLiant servers don't bend the pins. The servers also include a feature called Smart Drive, which makes it easier to identify what drive has gone bad so admins don't yank out a working drive and corrupt data. According to Potter, Smart Socket and Smart Drive solve two problems that are major causes of damage and downtime in the data center. HP's shiny new ProLiant Gen8 servers (click to enlarge) There are four families of ProLiant Gen8 machines rolling out over the next several months, starting with a few machines in March, according to John Gromala, director of marketing for the ISSS division at HP. The ProLiant Gen8 servers will eventually replace the current ProLiant G7 servers, which are based on Xeon 5500 and 5600 and Opteron 6100 and 6200 processors.

HP Introduces ProLiant Gen8 Servers That Enhance Virtualized Performance, Facilitate Move to Cloud

NeoTrunks plans on installing virtualization software and then build VMs to test new releases, serve some files, and maybe host a game server or two. And RottGutt wants to rub it and pet it and squeeze it and strike its bill and rub its pretty feathers (feathers not included...). The breadth of responses shows how versatile HP's line of ProLiant MicroServers are, and the latest version, the Gen8, just ups the game once again. We received our HP ProLiant Microserver Gen8 today and while we haven't had time to test it out yet, we did manage to snap a lot of photos of this beauty. The first thing you'll notice is the size: This small cube can fit practically anywhere in your home or office and never be observed. Indeed, we did power the box up and couldn't even hear the fans over our main watercooled workstation.

Virtualization, Security Advances On Tap For Adcs

iboss Unveils Cloud-Based Network Security Platform [Professional Services Close - Up]

Image Caption Sign in Network World - The application delivery controller has been more than a simple accelerator and load balancer for some time now, becoming an increasingly important component of enterprise network infrastructures over the past couple of years. Full list of stories looking ahead to 2014 in the tech industry. This growth in importance is BYOD illustrated by a recent Infonetics research study, which found that ADC revenues in the second quarter grew by 4% year over year, while WAN optimization, a related network management technology, saw an 11% decline over the same period. As 2014 kicks off, two of the main issues for the growing ADC market are security and virtualization the technology has several features that have implications for denial-of-service protection, and the trend toward SDN and network virtualization has many people looking for software-only application delivery. But the technology isnt going to turn into a cloudified, all-inclusive network management panacea overnight experts say there is still some way to go. +ALSO ON NETWORKWORLD: ABC's of ADCs in the cloud | ADC: It's a platform, not a product | How to shop for ADCs + F5 Director of Technical Marketing Alan Murphy says that modern ADCs are a natural fit for the security role, particularly in light of the fact that most of todays denial-of-service attacks target the application layer to begin with.

According to a release, a provider of network security solutions, iboss is releasing new functionality that gives enterprises access to possible cybersecurity threats, malware breaches on mobile devices and attacks entering the network from social media sites. This system increases insight, shortens mitigation response and reduces the total cost of ownership (TCO) by up to 30 percent. The iboss platform provides visibility of everything going in and out of a network, across every single network port, identifying the known and the unknown. As an example, there are 65,535 ports on a network and legacy Web security vendors, if port focused, typically monitor only ports 80 and 443. Advanced threats, applications and even SaaS services are increasingly utilizing non-standard ports outside of port 80 and 443. iboss provides the visibility to identify what is traversing your network regardless of the port utilized, providing administrators more content visibility and allowing them to establish more actionable policy.

Network security in 2014

As one example, the majority of wireless access point deployments in SMEs are connected to the trusted network, effectively bypassing the gateway security controls and policies. This isnt sustainable, as wireless becomes the core of the network. There will be a rise in the deployment of both 802.11ac wireless and associated access point security. With the exponential growth of smartphones, and their expanding use as essential business and personal tools, organisations are facing up to the necessity to protect them. Smartphone security has at last reached the radar, and sales will grow strongly in 2014. Identity management solutions include those from Gartner Magic Quadrant market leaders VASCO and SafeNet . Wireless security solutions are available from vendors such as WatchGuard , Check Point and Xirrus . Kaspersky Lab is one of the vendors providing smartphone security. > See also: UK organisations have the highest mobile security fears in the world, survey reveals Mobility and convergence The rapid growth of mobility and the increase in numbers of mobile devices will carry on during 2014.

Data, device and network security vital for businesses this year: HP

Healthcare organisations, meanwhile, are pushing the boundaries of mobile innovation by connecting medical devices to mobile phones for remote monitoring of patient health. Dhanawat said the trend of bring your own device (BYOD) and choose your own device (CYOD) was also continuing to gain momentum. However, in 2014, business and government will move the focus beyond the device and towards building the applications, business process and services that realise the benefits to be gained from better customer and employee engagement, he added. Privacy a key issue For an organisation to be successful this year, it will need to have the proper policies and processes in place to address data, device and network security, as well as the privacy issues associated with having personal and company-owned data on one device. It is time for enterprise-grade mobility that delivers manageability, serviceability and security with the experience customers and employees crave, said the MD. With the increasing convergence of work and personal life, more employees want to use their own smart phones, tablets and notebook PCs to access company data, instead of devices provided at their workplaces. A growing number of organisations are realising that this practically unlocks the security doors and windows they have built up over the years, he said.

Bonded Adsl Routers Cisco 1921

However, I'm told that I can connect multiple Netgear DG834's as they have a "Virtual Router" feature. Anyway, my question is: Does anybody know of any other routers that have a "Virtual Router" feature other than the DG834's? Or, does anybody know of other broadband routers/modems that can bind multiple DSL lines together? I have Googled and Googled but I'm all Googled out now and still none the wiser.

Linksys by Cisco Wireless-N Broadband Router with Storage Link (WRT160NL)

They have carried out testing on BE LLU broadband connections to identify which routers perform the best. This testing has identified that some of the most expensive Cisco ADSL routers perform quite poorly in comparison to more common brands, but even Linksys (now owned by Cisco) can very depending on the actual model. The testing was carried out on a 1,550m BE LLU phone line capable of an 'up to 24 meg' service downstream with 1.3 meg upstream capacity. The speeds shown are in Kbps and represent the average sync speed rather than actual IP throughput over five tests per router. Device 1,178 ADSL2+ sync speeds.

How fast is your broadband router?

REVIEW SPECIFICATIONS In years past, the Linksys WRT54G wireless router was popular with hackers, who could easily modify the routers Linux kernel to suit their own needs. While Linksysnow Ciscohas never officially endorsed this practice, its new 802.11n router, the $119 WRT160NL, tacitly acknowledges their efforts. The company doesnt offer any features to make Linux hacking easierand you still void the warranty if you cook your own firmwarebut its an interesting wrinkle in a field otherwise crowded with devices that look and function VOIP the same. Setup and Design As with most Linksys routers, the setup process on the WRT160NLwhich took only three minutesis simple, fast, and not meant for the advanced user; anyone who just needs whole-house wireless access will be pleased. The router sports a thin and stylish clamshell design.

Router/VPN & ADSL connection

you for your time reading and answering this. Sue Sue You do not have to use a router to connect to an ADSL connection from your home to the main office. You can use a modem that connects to your Ethernet interface card on your PC to connect through ADSL. Your service provider will provide you with a modem. That is what I have installed at my remote lab. I use a Westell Wirespeed modem for my ADSL connection.

The new SmartDrive feature makes use of tray carriers that only fit SmartDrive-supported hard drivesthese drive carriers don't fit into legacy Proliant servers. This is because they are engineered to work with the new SmartDrive capability. The new carrier design also allows double the storage of previous Proliant models. With SmartDrive, each drive carrier has an LED that will tell you what is going on with the drive imminent failure or a RAID array rebuild, for examples. There is an additional LED that will light up in the event a RAID array has to be created.

HP Proliant DL380p Gen8 Server

The status screen shows you the progress of the system's start-up process and lets you easily enter the BIOS Setup, Intelligent Provisioning, or Boot Menu screen if necessary. Figure 2 shows the new boot-up display. Figure 2: HP ProLiant DL380p Gen8 Boot-Up Display Management and Performance Like other HP servers, the ProLiant DL380p's iLO lets you perform out-of-band (OOB) remote management. With iLO, you can power the server on and off, check the temperature and status of all system components, and remotely control the server using either a .NET or Java console. To accommodate the growing trend of using mobile devices to manage servers, Google Android and Apple iOS apps available from their respective app stores can provide remote iLO for the ProLiant DL380p. The mobile device apps access the iLO web interface, letting you perform a number of actions, including toggling the system power, modifying the BIOS, and mounting ISO images. A great addition to the ProLiant DL380p is the Active Health System, which acts like a black box flight recorder in airplanes. The Active Health System records configuration changes, as well as all other hardware activity, such as adding and moving DIMMs. The activity is logged to a NAND flash drive embedded on the motherboard. The ProLiant DL380p will save about two years' worth of information. For troubleshooting, you can remotely download the logs and export them to HP if needed.
