The Next Generation Intelligent Network Infrastructure: How the Enterasys S-Series provides critical capabilities for a future-proofed Local Area Network
The past decade has brought many changes and advancements to the traditional local area network (LAN). The LAN’s evolution has accelerated from simple connectivity for a group of computing devices in a building or campus to a multifaceted service delivery system that connects larger numbers of users and increasingly diverse devices and applications, including IP wired and wireless communications devices, video surveillance, building access security, virtualized computing and applications, and enterprise cloud computing. In addition to providing greater bandwidth, LANs of the future must be more intelligent and posses the ability to automatically adapt and reconfigure connectivity when users and services move throughout the enterprise. The LAN must provide context for who or what is connecting to it, what the user or device’s role is and be able to provision role-based connectivity, bandwidth and security. This paper introduces unique and industry-leading Enterasys solutions that simplify day-to-day administration and reduce operational costs while providing a robust and future-proofed network infrastructure.
