Branch Connectivity and WAN Solutions

Most of the companies have multiple branches and more often than not, a good network connectivity (Wide Area Network) across these branches is a must.

Challenges faces by companies:-

  • Access to enterprise resources from outside of headquarters can be either time-consuming and/or expensive dependent on connection and bandwidth
  • Consistency of data and uniform software releases are difficult to guarantee within decentralized structures
  • Installation of software and management of software versions is very time-consuming
  • Security of data and access is a real challenge
  • Support for widely spread workforce is resource intense
  • Performance can be an issue for mobile workers
  • Solutions Framework

  • Application server computing
  • Solutions to address your business challenges

  • Remote Office Connectivity: Customer needs

  • Connect remote locations quickly
  • Ensure consistency of data and applications for employees in remote offices and in headquarters
  • Access data in real-time
  • Improve operational efficiency
  • Cut costs
  • Guarantee end user support for all locations – inside and outside head quarters
  • Keep number of IT staff to a minimum
  • Campus Wide LAN & Fiber Networks

    The institutions of higher learning need to reap the benefits of internet revolution through integrating ICT into the learning environment. The focus is to improve the quality of education and laying a good foundation at the higher learning institution and encourage the institution and its affiliated colleges to share the resources, knowledge content, promotion and implementation of e-governance, faculty development and exchange of skills. All the IT resources and content should be available to the faculty and students from their desk as well as anywhere - anytime basis over the campus. To achieve the same, the universities / colleges /institutions need to establish Campus network at their campuses. It is very helpful for the universities / colleges and institutions to work from any block/building and receive the same speed of data transfer.

    A typical campus network or campus area network is a computer network made up of an interconnection of local area networks (LANs) within a limited geographical area. The networking equipments (switches, routers, firewalls, IPSs) and transmission media (optical fiber, copper cable) are used to interconnect & communicate among all devices connected.
    In a college or university/institution, its campus area network is likely to interconnect a variety of campus buildings, including administrative buildings, academic buildings, university libraries, campus or student centers, hostels, guest house, gymnasiums, and other outlying structures, like conference centers, technology centers, stadiums, and training institutes.

    Internet Load Balancing

    Load balancing is being used in different ways for few years. The dependency on Internet has become so high that the organizations can not afford to have the links go down. The internet is being used not only for the standard browsing but also the branches and depo locations also connect to the HO over the Internet. In such a scenario the downtime paralyzes comple operations and hence organizations tend to hunt for Multiple ISP support .

    The Load balancing is sometimes also used internally for balancing load across multiple application servers. We offer high performance hardware appliances from reputed OEMs clubbed with our extremely skilled support to integrate Multiple ISP links solutions in load balancing and failover modes.

    Network Access Control And RADIUS Servers:

    Network Access Control

    Network Access Control (NAC) is a complete standards-based, multi-vendor inter operable pre-connect and post-connect Network Access Control solution for wired and wireless LAN and VPN users. Using Enterasys Identity & Access appliances and/or Identity & Access Virtual Appliance with NetSight NAC management configuration and reporting software, IT administrators can deploy a leading-edge NAC solution to ensure only the right users have access to the right information from the right place at the right time. NAC is tightly integrated with the Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and Security Information and Event Manager (SIEM) and NetSight Automated Security Manager to deliver best-in-class post-connect access control
    NAC enables the homogeneous configuration of policies across multiple switch and wireless access point vendors. This capability significantly reduces the burden of policy life cycle management and eases NAC deployment in wired and wireless heterogeneous infrastructures. With NAC’s flexibility, organizations have phased deployment options enabling immediate network protection and business value. For example, an organization can start with simple endpoint detection and location directory information, then add authentication/authorization and or assessment, and then auto-mate remediation. .

    RADIUS Servers

    Network Policy Server (NPS) can be used as a Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) server to perform authentication, authorization, and accounting for RADIUS clients. A RADIUS client can be an access server, such as a dial-up server or wireless access point, or a RADIUS proxy. When NPS is used as a RADIUS server, it provides the following: A central authentication and authorization service for all access requests that are sent by RADIUS clients. A central accounting recording service for all accounting requests that are sent by RADIUS clients.

    VLAN Installation

    VLANS are probably more talked than implemented. Even today the spread of VLANs in SMB enterprises is still not high. Many places this happens because of the insufficient skills available with the in house IT team of organizations.
    We help design and implement VLAN solutions using Layer 3 switches and / or UTM appliances. Our solutions help the customer have a stable and secure network environment which increases the over all response time and service levels to the end user.

    VPN and Remote Access:

    A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is a group of two or more computer systems, typically connected to a private network, that communicates securely over a public network (typically the Internet). VPNs may exist between an individual machine and a private network (client-to-server or remote access) or a remote LAN and a private network (site-to-site).

    Site to site VPNs involve the use of dedicated VPN hardware at each remote site. Remote access VPNs however, utilize a central site VPN concentrator and a software VPN client. The client is installed on the users' desktop or laptop computers and enables the users to establish a secure, encrypted tunnel to the office network.

    VPN connection extends the boundaries of the physical network. Computers that gain access to a VPN can potentially access all the resources of the private network as if they were physically connected to it. This allows for workers, consultants, external vendors and offshore support to connect to the corporate network from any spot on earth, and perform their job remotely. The number of concurrent VPN connections is only limited by the public network bandwidth and the performance capabilities of the VPN server/appliance.

    Wireless Networking

    Wireless technology has helped to simplify networking by enabling multiple computer users to simultaneously share resources in a home or business without additional or intrusive wiring. These resources might include a broadband Internet connection, network printers, data files, and even streaming audio and video. This kind of resource sharing has become more prevalent as computer users have changed their habits from using single, stand-alone computers to working on networks with multiple computers, each with potentially different operating systems and varying peripheral hardware. Reasons to choose wireless networking over traditional wired networks include:

  • Running additional wires or drilling new holes in a home or office could be prohibited (because of rental regulations), impractical (infrastructure limitations), or too expensive
  • Flexibility of location and data ports is required
  • Roaming capability is desired; e.g., maintaining connectivity from almost anywhere inside a home or business
  • Network access is desired outdoors; e.g., outside a home or office building.

  • Wireless Network Components

    Much like a traditional wired LAN, a WLAN is a grouping of computers and peripheral devices that share a common communications backbone. As is implied by the name, a WLAN allows users to connect to the LAN wirelessly via radio transmission. The following are the most common components of a WLAN.
  • Access Point
  • PC Card
  • PCI Adapter
  • Router
