With the rapid rise of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) phenomenon contributed by the widespread of smart mobile devices, the increasing implementations of wireless accessing points (APs) in corporate environments have become an attraction for potential network intrusion and data theft. As software-based measures have been found with numerous loopholes, corporations have to rely on hardware-assistance for total solution in BYOD environment. The following will discuss the BYOD situations in details and present a hardware-assisted total solution with multiple advantages including Intel x86 firewall architecture and high-port density, which are optimally deployable for BYOD settings.
With the exponential growth of mobile Internet devices and the rise of Cloud Computing, end-users demand faster, more powerful and more secured Internet services. This unprecedented demand has presented a new challenge which Internet service provider and IT system operators maintain and manage their network traffic. To ensure smooth network traffic, an all new enhanced architecture is necessary in order to handle the various types of data packets and security instructions. In other words, performance, power efficiency, scalability and reliability are the major factors in network traffic management.
In an era where high speed networks are affordable and readily available, video streaming in high quality over IP has replaced the costly video broadcasting over analog or lease lines as a more flexible and cost-effective solution. Compare with regular data transmission, stricter requirements must be met for streaming broadcast-level video over an open Internet, where uneven deliveries, packet loss and buffering are unacceptable. For high quality video broadcast services such as video on demand (VOD) and over the top (OTT), user experience very much depends on continuous and seamless packet delivery over an open Internet.
