CISCO 3G WAN Interface Card for Verizon or Sprint

A wireless connection for backup to a remote site provides protection against line outages and an additional level of redundancy as the 3G WWAN infrastructure is often served by separate facilities, providing redundancy for the entire local loop. Reduced cost-The emerging 3G WWAN cellular data service plans are competitively priced with existing wire line services (ISDN, DSL, and cable). 3G WWAN solutions also allow customers to consolidate their service providers across large geographical areas instead of having service contracts with multiple service providers. Portability-Wireless routers and Cisco 3G WWAN HWICs can be easily relocated wherever coverage is available. Performance-With data usage on the rise and the proliferation of Web-based applications at remote sites, there is an increasing need for high-speed (broadband) data connections to run mission-critical applications at these sites. 3G WWAN services promise low-latency links at speeds app The 3G wireless high-speed WAN interface cards (HWICs) offer a compelling alternative to traditional wireline backup solutions for the Cisco 1800 Series, 2800 Series, and 3800 Series integrated services routers. The 3G wireless HWIC provides WAN backup using terrestrial cellular technology.

Installing and Configuring the LaCie Ethernet Disk mini Home

lacie ethernet disk In this story, we fill you in on both of the newest server familiesnamely HPs Celeron-based EX485/487 models and its Core 2 Duo-based EX490/95 models. We also examine some options for building your own small form factor server, thanks to an equipment loan from mini-ITX system builder Logic Supply, to compare what you can build these days versus what you can buy from HP. As it hears from its users and understands that they want more power and capability to play back and transcode videos, as well as provide network backups, share photos and home videos, and establish a low-maintenance Web site for outside access, HP has steadily bolstered the specs of each new generation of its MediaSmart Servers. The following provides additional detail on the various HP MSS models. Model XP/Vista/Win7: backup, media, itunes, NAS MacOS (v10.5+): iTunes, backup, media, NAS Three Generations of HP MediaSmart Servers Compared The differences between the 47* and 48* and 49* models are huge, starting with AMD-based processors in the 47* models versus Intel (Celeron 440 stock in 48* and Celeron 450 in EX490 and dual-core Pentium E5200 in EX495). Storage also increases from 500GB and 1TB in the 47* models to 750GB and 1.5TB for both 48* and 49* models, all using Seagate 7,200 RPM SATA 3 Gb/s drives. As you might expect from a piece of technology, prices have continued to fall on the older models as newer ones have emerged. Fortunately, prices on the newest models are surprisingly low for a pre-built appliance, especially compared to some of the NAS/SAN devices we've reviewed in the past. That makes choosing an EX49* model a no-brainer, as far as were concerned! Two more things: First, both the EX47* and EX49* models support a port multiplier through their eSATA ports (which facilitates up to five more drives to Mobile Data Connectivity: helping the transport industry become more productive be added to the server, given the proper interface). The EX48* models do not include this functionality. If four internal drive bays, three USB ports, and a single eSATA port dont provide you with enough storage options (that's up to 16TB with 2TB drives in every port or bay), this should also steer you toward the EX49* models as well.

Quick Look: HP's MediaSmart EX495 Home Server

Everything else was amazingly easy, if often painfully slow: select a language (English); approve the EULA; assign the server a name (we called ours THGHIPSRV) and create an administrative account and password. After that an automated test checks for blocked ports, then youre taken to the LaCie site to register your unit and obtain a domain name for remote access (ours was thghipsrv.homelacie.com) via the Internet. After that, you use a Web interface to log into the unit (we used the IP address format URL http://192.168.1.6 to access the unit). From there you can navigate around the various aspects of the HipServ interface by selecting among the tabs at the left of the units home page.

Hp Project Moonshot Hurls Arm Servers Into The Heavens ? The Register

HP unveils new HP ConvergedSystem 300 for Microsoft Analytics Platform | eChannelLine

Calxeda has put together a four-node server card with four memory slots and PCI-link interconnects so it can snuggle into a passive backplane to get power and talk to its ARM peers and make a network. 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.

Server and Storage Support Analyst jobs in Edmonton at ENGINEERING.com

HP believes IBM will become less interested in providing repair and logistical support to Lenovo. Its an empty charge, as IBM continues to provide Lenovo with maintenance support for its ThinkPad PCs nearly a decade after selling the division. The cloud concerns, especially on the SMB level, are real, but not exclusive to Lenovo. HP doesnt have a good answer for the cloud challenge, which is why it launched a cloud infrastructure program. IBM believes it can retain many affected server partners by converting them to resellers of its SoftLayer program . But Lenovo is banking on customers wanting to retain some on-premises hardware, which is one of the possible outcomes of the HP PartnerOne for Cloud program. Objectively, all server vendors face serious challenges as the market moves from heavy on-premises infrastructure to optimized virtual environments and cloud services. An argument could be made that Lenovo is simply filling a void vacated by IBM, HP and, increasingly, Dell, which are moving up the stack to enterprise solutions.

HP Out to Rescue IBM Partners From Lenovo

It provides enterprises with a single view of all these environments, to remove the complexity out of data analytics. The HP ConvergedSystem 300 for Microsoft Analytics Platform integrates in-memory performance, a massively parallel processing data warehouse (SQL Server PDW) and Hadoop into one system. To enable and accelerate data driven decisions, the seamless integration of the data in SQL Server PDW with data in Hadoop utilizes the PolyBase query technology. This offering is targeted at any company that has a lot of data in SQLs and want to take better advantage of it for analytics, Guida said. This is typically the high end of the mid-market, up to large enterprises, but its not the size of company that matters as much as the use case. Its about having data in a SQL database, or, typically more than one of them. This is not the first collaboration between Microsoft and HP in data warehousing.

HP joins with Foxconn to build low-cost cloud servers | PCWorld

Traditional server vendors like HP and IBM have had mixed results selling to those companies, who increasingly buy direct from Asian contract manufacturers like Quanta and Wistron, which are better set up for low-cost production. HP hopes to tap into that low-cost model by tightening its partnership with Foxconn, one of the biggest contract manufacturers that already manufactures some of HPs ProLiant servers, as well as TVs, PCs, phones, tablets and servers for numerous vendors. One industry analyst saw the move as way for HP to keep Foxconn as an ally instead of seeing it become a threat. Foxconn is gaining expertise as a server maker in its own right, and it reportedly wants a bigger piece of that business, which could be more profitable for it than consumer electronics.

Hp To Begin Charging For Firmware Updates And Service Packs For Servers | Zdnet

HP starts charging for server firmware updates | PCWorld

If you own an HP server, be prepared to keep your support agreement up to date. Or else. Beginning this month, HP is restricting access to firmware updates and service packs for its entire ProLiant server line, a product category that spans a wide range of products, from low-cost small business servers like the ProLiant MicroServer (starting price $359) all the way up to enterprise-class boxes that cost tens of thousands of dollars. Here's an example of what customers see when they visit the HP Support Center: Previously, that firmware upgrade was available to anyone, regardless of the server's warranty status or whether it was under a support agreement. The new policy was announced by HPs Mary McCoy, whose title is listed as Vice President, HP Servers Support Technology Services. In a blog post strangely titled Customers for life, McCoy, a 30-year HP veteran, explained: This week, HP announced that effective February 19, 2014, we will provide firmware updates through the HP Support Center only to customers with a valid warranty, Care Pack Service or support agreement. This decision reinforces our goal to provide access to the latest HP firmware, which is valuable intellectual property, for our customers who have chosen to maximize and protect their IT investments. We know this is a change from how weve done business in the past; however, this aligns with industry best practices and is the right decision for our customers and partners. McCoy explained that customers with servers still under warranty will not need to pay for firmware access. And, she added, somewhat defensively, we are in no way trying to force customers into purchasing extended coverage. That is, and always will be, a customers choice. Most enterprise customers are already accustomed to purchasing extended support contracts; for them, this changeprobably wont have a serious impact. The new policy will have its biggest impact on the low end of HPs line, which is popular among small businesses and enthusiasts. It will also negatively impact values of HP server products on the resale market and potentially have a devastating impact on third-party support firms. The HP ProLiant MicroServer N40L, for example (shown here), was available for sale in 2012 at heavily discounted prices from online sellers, typically under $300.

hp-warranty-status Only customers with an active warranty, an HP Care Pack subscription, or support agreement will be able to download the updates directly from HP. Previously, HP firmware updates were freely available. This decision reinforces our goal to provide access to the latest HP firmware, which is valuable intellectual property, for our customers who have chosen to maximize and protect their IT investments, HPs Mary McCoy vice president for technology services said in a blog post . We are in no way trying to force customers into purchasing extended coverage. That is, and always will be, a customers choice. Its not clear if HP will restrict access to critical firmware updates that are sometimes necessary to keep a device from misbehaving. As ZDNets Ed Bott who first reported this storypointed out, a flaw in ProLiant servers prevented them from running Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2, and resulted in the system hanging when it tried to boot with those operating systems installed. A firmware update eventually fixed the issue, but under the new HP policy, the critical fix would only be available to new ProLiant owners and people paying for an extended updates, as HP's ProLiant software warranty is limited to 90 days after purchase.

Hp Pays $108 Million To Settle Doj, Sec Corruption Probes - Business Insider

HP starts charging for server firmware updates | PCWorld

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Hewlett-Packard will pay $108 million and agreed to take on certain reporting and compliance obligations to settle a Justice Department and SEC investigation into potential violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission have been conducting investigations into HP's conduct in Russia and Poland, among other countries. On Wednesday, Polish prosecutors alleged that a local HP executive paid bribes worth over $500,000 in exchange for help winning contracts to supply computer equipment to Polish police headquarters. HP declined to comment on the specifics of that case. It did not elaborate on what obligations it agreed to take on in its settlement of the U.S. probes.

The software that came on SmartStart media is now embedded on a flash chip on ProLiant Gen8 servers and Gen8 server blades. The pre-loaded flash chip is bootable when a user presses the F10 key during server boot (POST). The server will then boot to the pre-loaded flash chip and show the Intelligent Provisioning software.

HP to begin charging for firmware updates and service packs for servers | ZDNet

hp-warranty-status It's true that updates for Ciscorouters and switches require a valid service contract. But downloads for Cisco servers (the Cisco Unified Computing System, or UCS, line) require registration but not a service contract . (Thanks to Bill Shields for the pointer, via Twitter.) And as networking consultant Lindsay Hill points out in a recent blog post , IBM also requires "entitlement validation" for "select software products and updates and for Machine Code (also known as firmware or microcode)." The IBM policy was announced last summer . Currently, visitors to IBM Fix Central see this announcement : Fix Central Machine Code updates are available only for IBM machines that are under warranty or an IBM hardware maintenance service agreement. Code for operating systems or other software products is available only where entitled under the applicable software warranty or IBM software maintenance agreement.

Palo Alto Networks Buys Cyber Security Company Cyvera For $200m

Palo Alto Networks Lights Firewall Under Wall Street

The companys TRAPS (Targeted Remote Attack Prevention System) is a 16-point system of controls that, rather than try to block or monitor and identify everything Meru Networks that comes through, creates obstacles that will stop or slow down malicious intruders enough so that they can be eliminated before they ever touch sensitive servers. Cyveras approach workstheyve successfully stopped every published zero-day attack since they first began deploying their product. For background, Palo Alto Networkss proprietary hardware and software detects data threats as they come into an enterprise environment. Its made for the new types of attacks that come through the web in the form of malware. The companys offering is designed for all the ways people access the web, either through their laptops or their mobile devices.

palo-alto-networks-next-generation-enterprise-security-platform-large.png__1200×1033_ The company this morning announced a deal to by Cyvera, a privately held firm based in Israel, for $200 million. The purchase is expected to close in the second half of fiscal year 2014. Cyveras technology focuses on protecting systems against zero-day cyber attacks, identifying and blocking malware before it has a chance to run. Cyvera guards against techniques that attackers typically employ, regardless of which vulnerability theyre trying to exploit. Palo Alto considers it a perfect fit for the companys next-generation firewall offerings. This event marks a key milestone in our strategic enterprise security vision, said Mark McLaughlin, CEO of Palo Alto Networks. It extends our next-generation security platform with a very innovative approach to preventing attacks on the endpoint. Its the second acquisition this year for Palo Alto Networks, which despite its name is based in Santa Clara.

Cybersecurity: Palo Alto Networks buys Cyvera for $200m

"These kinds of breaches give rise to the security paradigm and the fact that corporations must do a better job of getting the right security tools in place." Circling The Wagons The race to win market share in this hot sector has led to a series of deals involving some of its leading players, including Palo Alto. On Jan. 7 it acquired Morta Security, a closely held startup that claims to use "military-grade technology" to battle network security threats. Morta was founded two years ago by former officials at the National Security Agency. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Little public information has been provided on Morta's technology, though Palo Alto CEO Mark McLaughlin said in a statement that it "aligns well with our highly integrated, automated and scalable platform approach." Analyst Owens says Morta mainly brings "a knowledge base and talent pool" that will help clients protect against next-generation threats. The Palo Alto-Morta deal followed the Jan. 2 announcement that computer security firmFireEye ( FEYE ) acquired closely held Mandiant in a deal worth $1.05 billion. Another big transaction came in October, whenCisco Systems ( CSCO ) completed its acquisition of Sourcefire for $2.7 billion.

Palo Alto Networks Pushes Next-Generation Firewall Performance

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. Firewalls from a single vendor help reduce the overall security fatigue that many organizations must now routinely combat . None of that means that IT organizations should abandon a traditional in-depth defense strategy.

Cisco patches vulnerabilities in small business routers and wireless LAN controllers

provided updated firmware this week that addresses a severe vulnerability founds in its Wireless N-VPN family of small business routers, as well as its Wireless N-VPN firewall. In a security advisory , Cisco explained that the wireless router vulnerability is the result of an "improper handling of authentication requests by the Web framework" and can be exploited remotely. Though the networking giant is not aware of the flaw being actively exploited in the wild, Cisco urged companies to upgrade their Wireless N-VPN products to the latest firmware, warning that there are no current workarounds to mitigate the issue, and that a successful exploit would have dire consequences. "Successful exploitation of the vulnerability may allow an attacker to gain full control of the affected device," Cisco said. "An attacker with full administrative access to the device can configure all the settings of the router through the Web-based administration user interface." Gustavo Javier Speranza, an Argentina-based computer forensics investigator, originally reported the vulnerability to Cisco. In a full disclosure post on Neohapsis' website, Speranza explained that an attacker can gain admin access to a device simply by manipulating the POST data on the administration page, thereby effectively bypassing the login.

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

These concerns go to the quality of the lawyering, and it can make a difference if counsel is not evenly matched. In this case, the trial lawyers for each side, Morgan Chu (for Juniper) and Harold McElhinney (for Palo Alto), are widely regarded as stellar trial lawyers, and are evenly matched. Thus, it is too soon to say what will happen at trial without knowing the evidence and getting a feel from the testimony as to how the evidence is coming in. However, having said all this, it is possible to glean insight as to the nature of the evidence - and the relative strength and weakness of the proposed expert testimony on a given issue -- based on comments made by the court in its recent summary judgment opinion. Based on the court's comments in its summary judgment opinion, it appears Juniper may have the upper hand here, at least as to the three patents selected for trial beginning on Feb 24. For example, with respect to the 347 patent, the court adopted Juniper's proposed construction of the claim term "[Sorting/processing] packets into initially denied packets". Further, the court denied Palo Alto motion for summary judgment of non-infringement under the doctrine of equivalents, reasoning that Palo Alto failed to proffer any evidence to contradict the testimony of Juniper's expert: "Juniper's expert offered sufficient support for his theories under the doctrine of equivalents, incorporating his element by element analysis from his opinion regarding literal infringement. While PAN may disagree with these conclusions, this goes to the weight of the testimony and may be properly dealt with on cross-examination. PAN has not herein offered any evidence or expert report to contradict the opinions of Juniper's expert.

Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls Added to the Department of Defense Unified Capabilities Approved Products List

+ Also on NetworkWorld: Juniper unveils new fabric switch architecture | VMware and Palo Alto Networks team for virtual networking security + The centerpiece in this firewall fight is a patent called "Method and Apparatus for Implementing a Layer 3/Layer 7 Firewall in L2 Device," (patent #7,779,459) . Juniper alleges Palo Alto is infringing this patent by making and selling its PA-5000, PA-4000 and PA-2000 Series Firewalls as well as the PA-500 and PA-2000 Firewalls. Calling it the 459 patent for short, Juniper is railing against Palo Alto, claiming the firm "knew that these products infringed the 459 patent and intended that third parties using these products would infringe the 459 patent. One fact among others, that evidences [Palo Alto's] knowledge and intent, is that Yuming Mao, co-founder of [Palo Alto Networks], was an inventor of the 459 patent." Juniper also claims Palo Alto is infringing several other patents, including two owned by Juniper titled "Intelligent Integrated Network Security Device," ( #7,650,634), and "Method and Apparatus for Implementing a Layer 3/Layer 7 Firewall in an L2 Device, (#7,302,700). The latter, says Juniper, among other patents cited, was also invented by Yuming Mao. But Palo Alto will be fighting hard to defend itself. And back in September, the company launched its own patent-infringement lawsuit against Juniper in the Northern District Court of California, alleging its rival is violating three of its patents in Juniper products. It's uncertain who will win in any of this, and the appeals process could go on for some time if there's no settlement. But the results of this patent-lawsuit smackdown should be of great interest to customers as well as financial analysts and industry researchers.

HP Unveils New MicroServer, ProLiants for SMBs

In a blog post strangely titled Customers for life, McCoy, a 30-year HP veteran, explained: This week, HP announced that effective February 19, 2014, we will provide firmware updates through the HP Support Center only to customers with a valid warranty, Care Pack Service or support agreement. This decision reinforces our goal to provide access to the latest HP firmware, which is valuable intellectual property, for our customers who have chosen to maximize and protect their IT investments. We know this is a change from how weve done business in the past; however, this aligns with industry best practices and is the right decision for our customers and partners. McCoy explained that customers with servers still under warranty will not need to pay for firmware access. And, she added, somewhat defensively, we are in no way trying to force customers into purchasing extended coverage. That is, and always will be, a customers choice. Most enterprise customers are already accustomed to purchasing extended support contracts; for them, this changeprobably wont have a serious impact. The new policy will have its biggest impact on the low end of HPs line, which is popular among small businesses and enthusiasts.

HP to begin charging for firmware updates and service packs for servers

hp-warranty-status Hewlett-Packard is rolling out new and enhanced servers aimed at smaller businesses, including the latest model in its line of ProLiant MicroServers. 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. The system makes it easy to store, secure and share information from a central location, enhancing collaboration and content sharing among employees.

The specification isn't a powerhouse, but it's decent enough for a first business server (especially if you just need centralised file sharing and storage plus the odd server application), and more than capable for home server usage. Full specifications as follows: 21cm (w) x 26cm (d) x 26.7cm (h) Weight: 6 Kg There are a couple of weaknesses to be aware of here. Firstly, RAID support. If you're going to run Windows Home Server v1 on the HP MicroServer, then you will not [source] be concerned but for those considering Windows Home Server 2011 and Windows Small Business Server Essentials 2011 may well need some degree of redundant data protection. The HP MicroServer does support RAID 0 (Data Striping) and RAID 1 (Mirroring) but we'd never recommend running RAID 0 on a server as it lacks any fault tolerance in the event of disk failure. We would have liked to have seen support for RAID 5 on the Microserver, for use when all of the drive bays are being utilised - most 4-bay NAS competitors offer support for RAID 5, so it's omission here is a gap that hopefully can be filled in the next generation of the server. In the meantime, you may wish to fit a separate RAID Controller card into one of the MicroServer's (half-height/half-length) PCIe ports. Secondly, the low low price of the HP MicroServer is helped by the provision of just a single year's warranty if you want more, you'll need to opt for one of HP's Care Packs. Compare that to HP's three-year warranty on the X510 Data Vault and you may wish to look there instead (if you can find one still on sale). For absolute happiness, I'd love to have seen 2GB RAM on board, rather than the 1GB slab fitted as standard, especially as the RAM upgrade is a fiddly job.

A New Infographic From Prodec Networks Discovers Crucial Stats For 3g And Broadband Across The Uk

One essential stat which is slightly surprising is that only 60 % of metropolitan businesses make use of a broadband connection. What is not so unusual nevertheless, is that just 41 % of rural companies use a broadband hookup, with 34 % of these businesses disappointed with the reliability and 25 % disappointed with the worth for money. Looking at the infographic it is clear that both city and rural businesses are unhappy with the speed of their broadband connection with 48 % and 63 % of companies being disappointed respectively. East Anglia and some parts of Wales are the least satisfied with their high speed broadband rate which represents the absence of 3G drivers in these areas, other than for little wallets. The map of broadband fulfillment rates largely represents the 3G protection map, except for some parts of central England, particularly Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire which have reduced fulfillment rates with their broadband however are well covered by 3G operators, suggesting the use of mobile information connectivity can be a viable choice for these locations for Internet services.

bonded 3G mobile broadband

Nigel Chadwick, Founding Director of Stream Communications, said, Production companies which use standard 3G solutions have rapidly discovered the limitations of the technology, not least due to the issues of contention in areas such as stadia with large crowds communicating via mobile. The ability to bond 3G for greater bandwidth, and our own enhanced network provision, means broadcasters are now able to access a more cost effective and flexible transport network for their digital content from anywhere. For a 3G data connection to be viable for outside broadcast it must meet specialist requirements for high capacity, security and reliability, while addressing the considerable cost implications of transmitting television content. With six Stream 3G SIMS bonded and optimised for maximum video quality based, accessible bandwidth can be as high as 30Mbps. That is more than capable of supporting a live 1080HD video stream to deliver a satellite-equivalent broadcast experience. Outside broadcast depends on the resilience and quality of connection back to the studio. The enhanced 3G network offers a mature, vast, reliable, and stable alternative to satellite, said Chadwick. With a quick, simple set up and monthly service charge, Stream Communications provides broadcasters with a flexible and resilient alternative to satellite backhaul, with a tariff that is significantly lower when compared to capital expenditure and data transmission costs from hiring or owning a satellite vehicle. As the 3G data connection does not require tethering to a vehicle, with all the additional demands of cabling these bring, it immediately delivers additional advantages in terms of mobility which roving reporters will in particular demand as they are spread across the many and often remote Olympic venues in 2012. Bonded 3G offers low capital expenditure to set up and relatively small operational costs.

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 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. In areas where terrestrial broadband services (cable, DSL, or T1) are not available or are expensive, 3G WWAN connectivity can be a viable alternative.

Juniper Networks Vs. Palo Alto Networks

ICSA Labs Certifies Palo Alto PA-500, PA-2000 and PA-4000 Firewall Solutions

Before we discuss the hearing in greater detail, it is important to provide a fuller picture of the case background. After filing its initial complaint, Juniper subsequently amended its Complaint on September 25, 2012 and added two more patents and dropped one. The final seven asserted patents remaining in the case include: 8,077,723 - (Nir Bonded 3G networks Zuk, Yuming Mao) Packet processing in a multiple processor system; 7,779,459 - (Yuming Mao et al.) - Method and apparatus for implementing a layer 3/layer 7 firewall in an L2 device; 7,650,634 - (Nir Zuk) - Intelligent integrated network security device; 7,302,700 - (Yuming Mao et al.) - Method and apparatus for implementing a layer 3/layer 7 firewall in an L2 device; 6,772,347 - (Ken Xie, Yan Ke, Yuming Mao) - Method, apparatus and computer program product for a network firewall; 7,734,752 - (Nir Zuk, Yuming Mao, Kowsik Guruswamy) - Intelligent integrated network security device for high-availability applications; 7,107,612 - (Ken Xie, Yan Ke, Yuming Mao) - Method, apparatus and computer program product for a network firewall. Other than the high stakes for investors, particularly those in Palo Alto, what makes this case so interesting is not so much the patents or technology at issue, but their inventors. Some facts are in dispute and we will go over the two versions of Palo Alto's story, but what's undisputed is that the company was founded by ex-Juniper employees who are also the named inventors of the asserted patents. The Palo Alto Networks Origin Story Juniper's Story - Palo Alto Networks was founded by several former high-level employees of Juniper, including Nir Zuk and Yuming Mao, who first came to Juniper via its acquisition of Netscreen, a manufacturer of high-end network security devices, for $4 billion in April of 2004. NetScreen's intellectual property rights were included as a part of this acquisition.

Altogether, these criteria requirements define an industry-accepted standard that all products claiming to have firewalling capabilities must attain. The version 4.1x reflects the different functional requirements in todays multi-segmented firewall market. Products under test at ICSA Labs must stand up to rigorous testing environments that our engineers have designed to replicate real-world enterprise networks. By meeting our corporate category certification requirements, Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls have demonstrated the ability to meet ICSA Labs' stringent security standards and also deliver strong risk-reducing security protections, commented Brian Monkman, perimeter security programs manager at ICSA Labs, in a statement. Palo Alto Networks explained that it has built a next-generation firewall with several innovative technologies enabling organizations to fix the firewall. These technologies bring business-relevant elements such as applications, users, and content under policy control on a high performance firewall architecture. The companys Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) delivers visibility and control over application, users, and content within the firewall using a proprietary hardware and software architecture. Palo Alto added that the ICSA Labs certification reinforces the companys commitment to delivering continuous innovation in the next-generation firewall platform to its customers.

Juniper vs. Palo Alto Networks: Firewall court battle set to begin

And Palo Alto wants to take out Juniper in its own separate patent lawsuit. Juniper alleges that Palo Altos firewalls are based on intellectual property that Juniper gained in its $4 billion acquisition of NetScreen in 2004, and that this technology was developed by Nir Zuk, the former CTO at NetScreen, and Yuming Mao, a former engineering architect there. Later, Zuk and Mao went off to found Palo Alto, a maker of application-aware, or next-generation, firewalls. Juniper is seeking an injunction to bar firewall sales by Palo Alto and possibly reap monetary damages as well. Palo Alto declined to talk about the lawsuit, and sources at Juniper spoke only on background. But the Juniper lawsuit, which commenced as legal filings two years ago and is now expected to go to a jury trial in Wilmington, Del., speaks for itself. + Also on NetworkWorld: Juniper unveils new fabric switch architecture | VMware and Palo Alto Networks team for virtual networking security + The centerpiece in this firewall fight is a patent called Method and Apparatus for Implementing a Layer 3/Layer 7 Firewall in L2 Device, (patent #7,779,459) . Juniper alleges Palo Alto is infringing this patent by making and selling its PA-5000, PA-4000 and PA-2000 Series Firewalls as well as the PA-500 and PA-2000 Firewalls. Calling it the 459 patent for short, Juniper is railing against Palo Alto, claiming the firm knew that these products infringed the 459 patent and intended that third parties using these products would infringe the 459 patent. One fact among others, that evidences [Palo Altos] knowledge and intent, is that Yuming Mao, co-founder of [Palo Alto Networks], was an inventor of the 459 patent. Juniper also claims Palo Alto is infringing several other patents, including two owned by Juniper titled Intelligent Integrated Network Security Device, ( #7,650,634), and Method and Apparatus for Implementing a Layer 3/Layer 7 Firewall in an L2 Device, (#7,302,700). The latter, says Juniper, among other patents cited, was also invented by Yuming Mao.

What Is A Wireless Network Security Key?

Wireless security myths 2010

His or her neighbor, who lives in the next apartment, turns on a WI-FI card and gets access to the Internet too. For free. At the neighbors cost. Such a situation cannot normally occur if the network is protected with a key. Nobody, except those who have the key, will be able to access the protected network. Setting a Good Security Key It is very important to set a complex security key in order to guarantee a high level of protection. There exists software that can determine the security key by means of trying out a number of possible combinations. So, if the key is simple it takes several minutes to steal it.

Many people still think that they are secure if they have a "no Wi-Fi" policy. If only wireless security were that simple. In the real world where it is not possible to trust everyone, it would be naive to assume the policy will never be violated. A disgruntled employee can implant a rogue access point, and even well-meaning employees can deploy APs that will inadvertently expose your network to rogue activity. Similarly, Wi-Fi client cards that come embedded in most of the notebooks today can be a potential source of threat -- they can be exploited by attackers. Further, other wireless technologies embedded in notebooks such as Bluetooth can create security vulnerabilities. Reality: Assuming that a "no Wi-Fi" policy will secure your network is akin to an "Ostrich solution". Myth 2: I use WPA2 in my network and I am secure. If you have rolled out your enterprise Wi-Fi deployment with WPA2, it is definitely a good start. WPA2 provides a strong cryptographic security for your WLAN APs and clients. However, in a large deployment, it is important to ensure that none of the devices are accidentally mis-configured, thus potentially exposing gaping security holes.

Better security boosts agencies' use of wireless devices

Known as the Lightweight Extensible Authentication Protocol (LEAP), its Ciscos implementation of an emerging wireless-network security standard that plugs holes in the authentication and encryption standard built into most existing corporate facilities. Theres just one problem: Even though they agree it is a big improvement, many users of Ciscos wireless-network access points are avoiding LEAP. Some Cisco customers, such as Carolyn Coulter, systems officer at the Boston Public Library, see LEAP as a proprietary system that doesnt fit on a network open to a variety of devices, from standard PC laptops to Macs and handheld devices. In Bostons 27 librarieswhere 100 Cisco wireless access points have been deployed over the last year for patron useCoulter cant be sure that all visitors will have Cisco-compatible gear. So she plans to use a gatewayBluesockets WG-2100to authenticate users on the librarys network and possibly to encrypt wireless traffic. Other Cisco customers are bypassing both LEAP and other gateways altogether. The Hotel Valencia in San Jose, Calif., for example, provides unlimited access to its wireless network but restricts what guests can do.

Ciscos Wireless Security Standard

Mobile devices sporting the Windows Mobile operating system are gaining traction. For example, the Census Bureau is deploying Microsofts mobile operating system on 140,000 handheld PDAs for the 2010 census. This is the largest one-time deployment of Windows Mobile devices, said Randy Siegel, Microsoft Federal telecommunications and mobility strategist. Harris, the systems integrator for the 2010 census, selected Sprint to be the wireless data provider. Field workers collect census data using handheld PDAs that connect to the Sprint network. In the past, field workers collected most census data manually by using paper address lists and printed maps. The 2010 census will be almost paperless, at least in the address canvassing phase, which was just completed. Sybase iAnywhere provided its Afaria mobile-device management and security software, which has encryption modules that are FIPS 140-2-validated. Windows Mobile 5 and higher operating systems are also FIPS 140-2-certified, Siegel said.

The Importance Of Wireless Security

Wireless networks offer great potential for exploitation for two reasons; they use the airwaves for communication, and wireless-enabled laptops are ubiquitous. To make the most of their security planning, enterprises need to focus on threats that pose the greatest http://www.forbes.com/sites/patrickmoorhead/2013/04/08/hp-moonshot-say-goodbye-to-the-vanilla-server/ risk. Wireless networks are vulnerable in a myriad of ways, some of the most likely problems being rogue access points (APs) and employee use of mobile devices without appropriate security precautions, but malicious hacking attempts and denial-of-service (DoS) attacks are certainly possible as well. Unlike traditional wired networks in which communications travel along a shielded copper wire pair or optical cable, wireless radio frequency (RF) signals literally traverse the open air. As a result, RF signals are completely exposed to anybody within range and subject to fluctuating environmental factors that can degrade performance and make management an administrative nightmare. Whether authorized or not, wireless access points and their users are subject to malicious activity and employee misuse. Related Content Additional wireless access security challenges come through the use of wireless-enabled devices by employees, the growing amount of confidential data residing on those devices, and the ease with which end users can engage in risky wireless behavior. The value of connectivity typically outweighs concerns about security, as users need to get work done while at home or while traveling. Survey data from the leading research group, Gartner, shows that at least 25 percent of business travelers connect to hotspots, many of which are unsecure, while traveling. Furthermore, about two-thirds of those who use hotspots connect to online services via Wi-Fi at least once a day highlighting the need for extending wireless security outside of the enterprise.

Integrated wired and wireless LAN security? Not so fast

Not so fast Rivka Gewirtz Little, Senior Site Editor This article can also be found in the Premium Editorial Download "IT in Europe: Wired and wireless: Can you achieve an integrated network?." Download it now to read this article plus other related content. Many vendors preach integrated wired and wireless LAN security solutions, but some network security pros, like Ruairi Brennan, IT security analyst at The Electricity Supply Board (ESB) of Ireland, don't see the point. After all, isolating wired and wireless networks keeps vulnerabilities that are unique to the Wi-Fi network away from the wired network, says Brennan. The ESB's wireless LAN serves between 8,000 and 10,000 users with 60 Aruba Networks access points (APs). It was built to provide wireless access in conference rooms and other areas that the existing wired LAN didn't serve well. For security, the ESB turned to AirTight's SpectraGuard Enterprise Wireless IPS (a wireless intrusion prevention system product) and the SpectraGuard SAFE endpoint protection system. Deployed together, these products can stop bridging between wired and wireless networks. It's a massive security risk if you have someone on the LAN simultaneously accessing an outside wireless access point, Brennan said. You could be bridging between a secure LAN and [what could be] an unknown AP on the wireless network. That only offers the rogue entry point access to secure data. The SpectraGuard Enterprise package offers the basic necessities of wireless LAN security : It blocks unauthorized access to the wireless LAN by enforcing authentication policy. It also detects rogue AP s and prevents them from connecting to the LAN, and it enables centralized management and policy enforcement.

Hack Simplifies Attacks On Cisco Routers

Not Your Father He was able to execute memory writes and to disable CPU caches on Cisco routers running on the PowerPC CPU. Lindner hasn't yet tested his technique on larger, more expensive Cisco routers, but plans to do so eventually. Security researcher Dan Kaminsky says FX's hack disproves conventional wisdom in enterprises that routers are at low risk of attack, and that patching them is riskier than an attack due to the potential network outages that patching can incur. "Patching is hard. Patching something that, if there's a failure, causes widespread network outages. Having a vaguely credible reason not to patch, like 'the attacker would have to build http://www.prodec.co.uk/products/avaya-4850gts-pwr-layer-3-switch an attack specifically targeted to my specific version of IOS,' has been something of a mantra for those who haven't wanted to risk updating their systems," says Kaminsky, who is director of penetration testing for IOActive . "The mantra is [now] visibly, irrevocably disproved. FX has shown that however much changes from one version to another, there's a little piece of every Cisco router that's the same, and he can use that piece to attack most of the hardware out there." The research also broke the barrier of one exploit, one router: "Three-and-a-half years ago it was international news that one guy got one exploit working on one Cisco router," he says.

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. In a demo, Cisco showed me how a user can remotely, via the Cisco Connect Cloud portal, carry out tasks that were quite impossible before, such as finding out the status of a refrigerator. Related stories The HAL 9000 meets his female counterpart... the Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Voice Control Brett Wingo, a Cisco vice president and general manager, said the new line of cloud-enabled routers will be game-changing products that "enable users to take total control of their home, and not just the Wi-Fi networks." Speaking of Wi-Fi networks, the new routers are all true dual-band Wireless-N routers, with the EA2700 supporting the 300Mbps standard on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, the EA3500 also supporting the 450Mbps standard on the 5GHz band, and the EA4500 supporting 450Mbps on both bands. They come with one USB port to host an external hard drive and work as a network storage server with media-streaming capability.

Hutchison Global Communications and Cisco Collaborate to Launch WiseNET to Offer High-end Next Generation Network Service

Transmitted in clear text across a network, Telnet traffic basically publicizes any login usernames and passwords to any attackers out there listening--who can take advantage of that information to access a device as the network administrator. The standard alternative to Telnet's lack of security is Secure Shell (SSH). Like Telnet, you can use SSH to enter IOS commands over a network or to copy files over the network to a device. But with SSH, which uses encryption and digital certificates, you don't have nearly as many security concerns. There are two versions of Secure Shell: SSH1 and SSH2. Cisco IOS 12.1(3)T was the first version to support SSH1; however, it does require the Data Encryption Standard (DES) or triple DES (3DES) IPSec encryption version of the IOS. Certain versions of IOS 12.3--12.3(4)T, 12.2(25)S, and 12.3(7)JA or laterwere the first to support SSH2, which requires a version of the IOS that supports 3DES.

The Layer 3 Link Between Nexus 7010 And Cisco 6506 E Switches Is Frequently Going Down Part 2

Jul 6 2011 10:07AM GMT Posted by: Yasir Irfan In my previous post I was talking about the problem we were facing with connectivity between Cisco 6500 Series switch and Cisco Nexus 7010 Switch. 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. X2 Port Cabling Specifications Cisco X2 - 40 km*** Intially everything looked good but after three months the problems aroused and the link start disconnecting, with the following errors 2011 Jun 12 09:05:03 VDC-Admin-CO01-MB-1256-001 %ETHPORT-5-IF_UP: Interface Ethernet1/17 is up in Layer3 2011 Jun 12 09:05:04 VDC-Admin-CO01-MB-1256-001 %ETHPORT-5-IF_DOWN_LINK_FAILURE: Interface Ethernet1/17 is down (Link failure) 2011 Jun 12 09:05:49 VDC-Admin-CO01-MB-1256-001 %ETHPORT-5-SPEED: Interface Ethernet1/17, operational speed changed to 10 Gbps We figured out the multimode fiber optic cable used is of 62.5/125 microns. As per the Cisco X2 port cabling specifications we were supposed to use either Cisco X2-10GB-SR or Cisco X2-10GB-LX4 module at Cisco 6500 Series Switch and a SFP SR Module at Nexus 7010 Switch. Seems like the problem occurred with the wavelength of fiber, once we replaced the Cisco X2-10GB-LX4 module with the Cisco X2-10GB-SR Module the problem was solved.

Juniper makes it easy, offering one model with the same or better performance in several categories than all of Ciscos 3750 series switches. Better yet, Junipers J-Care support can be as much as 75% less than Ciscos Smartnet. One of the most important factors in choosing a Layer 3 stackable switch is the actual performance of the stack.

Ex-Cisco SVP to Lead Andy Bechtolsheim?s Latest Switch Startup

Bechtolsheim, for his part, just left Sun Micro, where he was senior V-P and chief architect , to become chairman and chief development officer at Arista. Update: Sun has emailed us to clarify that in fact Bechtolsheim is reducing his status with the company to part-time in conjunction with taking on the role as chairman and chief development officer at Arista. Arista started shipping products in May and counts BitGravity, a content deliver network, among its customers. From what I understand, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and iCAIR Northwestern University are customers as well. Arista is one of growing number of startups responding to the obvious (and almost urgent) need to upgrade the data center infrastructure. A sharp increase in the number of servers and devices inside the data centers both web and enterprise has been putting pressure on the inside-the-data center architectures. The growing popularity of cloud computing-style architectures will stress them even further. There is a school of thought that 10Gb switches are the way to push through the bottleneck that is emerging as a consequence of relentless digitization, and Arista is very much a part of it. The companys architecture includes an extensible operating system, a software layer that allows them to manage extremely large network infrastructures. Arista is going after two major opportunities inside the data center. The first involves it making core switches that essentially connect large pools of servers (or racks) with one another.

market, Chambers cited strong growth prospects in the enterprise market, as its sales pipeline for big deals of between $1 million to $5 million in that segment is up 20 percent or more. Enterprise customers account for about 23 percent of Cisco's overall revenue. Cisco stunned the market last month by warning that revenue would fall as much as 10 percent this quarter and could keep declining for several quarters. The company blamed factors from emerging-economy weakness and political backlash in China to company-specific problems, such as market-share losses in network equipment and declining sales of set-top boxes. Chambers said it would take some time for the company to work out its issues in China, but he said Cisco would compete in China for the long term. Aside from emerging markets, Cisco's biggest problem in the quarter ended in October was a 13 percent decline in sales to service providers, which represent about 31 percent of overall revenue.
