  • Converged data and VoIP solutions that help reduce network costs and enable next generation networking applications;
  • Managed Services to help navigate through the different phases of discovery, design, planning, implementation, operation, and optimization for unified communications and wireless and enterprise security including vulnerability assessments.

IP Networks in Government & Education

Governmental and educational institutions are migrating from existing ATM, Frame Relay, and Time Division Multiplex infrastructures to an IP-based backbone. An IP network is key to providing advanced services and applications that can reduce costs while increasing network reliability and security. IP backbones must be designed to not only transport IP packets, but must be capable of providing multiple IP services over a single physical infrastructure, using techniques such as quality of service (QoS) and security services.

In addition, IP backbones should provide Layer 2/3 VPNs, IP multicast, IPv6, and granular traffic-engineering capabilities. Ultimately, these IP backbones should be scalable and flexible enough to support the mission-critical, time-sensitive applications that government agencies require, and to meet new demands for applications, services, and bandwidth. Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), when used on an IP backbone, provides the mechanism to offer these rich IP services and transport capabilities to the router infrastructure.

MPLS in Government & Education

As governmental and educational institutions embrace IP-based applications, more emphasis is being placed on the IP core infrastructures to support these new IP applications. MPLS is a key IP service-enabling option for offering and supporting multiple network applications and services.

MPLS technology can benefit educational and government agencies who want to use Layer 3 VPN technology as an offered transport service alternative to ATM and Frame Relay. The combination of multiple MPLS mechanisms can create a zero downtime model that protects applications with almost no packet loss and reduces the overall operating and capital expenditures of supporting the network while simplifying the management process.
