Managing DNS Services for Greater Network Security and Availability
Organizations are accelerating their network convergence strategies through simplification of legacy systems into IP-based network. More streaming and multimedia applications are being released into fixed broadband and mobile wireless networks. Enterprises are also increasing the adoption of VoIP and WLAN and rolling out related business applications across their IP infrastructure. However, as the number of IP devices increases, the demand and stress put onto the network infrastructure increase proportionately as well. This paper examines what IT organizations must do to improve their current DNS/DHCP strategy to maintain the performance, security, and availability of their IP networks.
