Cisco will Netzwerk-Anwendungen beschleunigen

Netzwerkausrüster taxiert Umsatzpotential in den nächsten Jahren auf eine Milliarde Dollar

Cisco Systems hat auf einer Analystenkonferenz mit den „Application Network Services“ (ANS) eine neue Technologie zur Beschleunigung von Netzwerk-Anwendungen vorgestellt. Dadurch sollen Mitarbeiter schneller auf große Anwendungspakete zugreifen können.

Der Netzwerkausrüster stuft ANS als „Advanced Technology“ ein, rechnet also mit Umsätzen von mehr als einer Milliarde Dollar in den nächsten fünf bis sieben Jahren. In diese Gruppe gehören auch VoIP, Optical Networking, Storage Area Networking, Heimvernetzung, WLAN, Sicherheit und Hosted Small Business.

Cisco hat sich bereits in der Vergangenheit mit der Beschleunigung von Netzwerk-Anwendungen befasst. So macht die Anfang des Jahres vorgestellte Technologie „Application oriented Networking“ die einzelnen Netzwerkkomponenten intelligenter und kann das Routing auf Basis festgelegter Richtlinien gestalten.

ANS entwickelt diese Idee weiter, in dem sie Unternehmen dabei unterstützt, ihre Applikationen zu verknüpfen. Die Bereitstellung von Diensten soll so deutlich schneller gehen.

    3com outperforms!
    3Com Outperforms Cisco in Independent Test Conducted by the Tolly Group

    MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Jan 18, 2006 (BUSINESS WIRE) — 3Com Switch 5500G-EI Beats Comparable Cisco Switch; Stackable Gigabit Switch Earns Multiple "Tolly Verified" Certifications Including for Convergence and Interoperability

    3Com Corporation today announced that in an independent performance test conducted by The Tolly Group, one of the most influential testing validation firms in North America, the 3Com(R) Switch 5500G-EI proved to be a superior alternative to the Cisco Catalyst 3750G-48TS switch for enterprise-class switching capabilities.

    According to the test results, the switch also proved to be interoperable in a Cisco network. This is a key feature for medium-to-large enterprises seeking to incorporate high-performance, cost-effective and convergence-ready LAN switches into either their Cisco-based or non-Cisco-based networks. Additionally, the 3Com Switch 5500G-EI earned The Tolly Group’s "First & Foremost" distinction as the first switch in its class with Power over Ethernet (PoE) in a stackable Gigabit switch to power Voice over IP (VoIP) phones, IP security cameras, wireless access points and other PoE-enabled devices.

    "3Com rose to the challenge of developing an outstanding LAN switch that delivers the high performance and enterprise-class features necessary for supporting and enhancing application performance, while at the same time maintaining the standards-based approach that truly benefits enterprise customers," said Kevin Tolly, president/CEO and founder of The Tolly Group. "Given the prevalence of multi-vendor networks driving the need to conform to standards to ensure interoperability, 3Com’s approach is impressive in terms of combining innovative technology with standards-based support, simplifying implementations, enforcing security and automating administrative tasks within a resilient network."

    The Test Results

    The Tolly Group conducted a benchmark performance comparison between the 3Com Switch 5500G-EI family and comparable Cisco LAN switch, which are considered by enterprises for supporting real-time business applications, such as Voice over IP. Among the devices tested, the 3Com Switch 5500G-EI proved to offer not only a full range of features in demand by enterprises today, but also the highest performance with minimal frame/packet loss – a crucial benefit for maintaining the availability of business applications.

    "Our 3Com Switch 5500G-EI is ready for prime time against any competitor in enterprise bids for LAN switching worldwide," said Brian Allain, vice president of 3Com’s Data Business Unit. "After major investments over the past year in expanding our LAN switching portfolio for the enterprise market, we knew that we had something very special with the Switch 5500 family. Now, we
