Business VoIP vs Traditional PBX Systems


A VoIP phone can be a simple software-based virtual telephone or a hardware device that looks like a common telephone. PBX telephone systems are available as hosted or virtual solutions (sometimes also called Centrex), and as internal solutions to be used on your own hardware.


Minimizing Jitter for VoIP calls


This makes for significant cost reductions and feature-packed services that don't require expensive hardware equipment. Jitter happens when the RTP packet stream traverses the network (LAN, WAN, or Internet) because it has to share network capacity with other data.

PowerShell: Installing Dell CCTK and Configuring BIOS Settings

Mick's IT Blog

This script will install the Dell CCTK and set specified BIOS settings. Unlike the CCTK that allows you to create a multiplatform file to run against any Dell model machine, this script takes a different approach so that there is a description, logging, and verification of each BIOS setting. This script will first install the CCTK that needs to be in the same directory as the script. It then executes the CCTKSetting function that allows for you to enter each desired setting.

7 Software Defined Networking Considerations » Data Center.

Data Center Knowledge

The good news is that data center networks will receive more attention and product development than other technologies (such as WANs and LANs). The potential exists for significant savings as SDN allows data centers to move away from single source hardware to the commodity-based pricing we see with servers. Amazon has cut prices for dedicated EC2 instances – an instance on single-tenant hardware that is particularly attractive to enterprise customers. About DCK.

Interop Liveblog: IPv6 Microsegmentation

Scott Lowe

According to Ivan, the root cause of all these problems originates with the fact that all LAN infrastructure today emulates 40 year old thick coax cable. These protections are also expensive to implement in hardware. This bypasses some IPv6 limitations because host routes are treated in hardware like ND cache entries (which means you get something like 32K entries). This session was titled “IPv6 Microsegmentation,” and the speaker was Ivan Pepelnjak.
