Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) is a term describing various technologies for transmitting Ethernet packets at a rate of a gigabit per second, as defined by the IEEE 802.3-2005 standard. There are four different physical layer standards for gigabit Ethernet using optical fiber, twisted pair cable, or balanced copper cable.

The white paper points out that it is important to remember that cloud computing is not just about data center technology. It's about streamlining business processes to make organisations and people more strategic and more responsive to change.
Riverbed Cascade Pilot and Cascade Shark combine sophisticated, end-to-end monitoring with high-speed,high-fidelity packet capture and analysis to deliver comprehensive network performance monitoring and analysis. Download this insightful solution brief to learn more.
Many products on the market today promise to measure and manage "end user experience" - but how can they if they are only testing from a central location? Download this whitepaper to learn how to see and solve user experience problems from their point of view. We'll show you to measure actual application traffic from the user perspective and other critical points in the network so you can pinpoint and understand where the issue is, either the end points or the path between them.
Abstract: Learn the essential considerations when evaluating network management tools and processes. We'll show you how most network management systems fail to deliver a complete picture of network and application performance.and that puts the organization at risk. Being aware of the potential shortcomings of an incomplete NMS is essential.
In this whitepaper we'll cover three common shortcomings, the possible consequences, and we'll highlight six key capabilities to be aware of when evaluating your network management tools and processes in order to avoid these shortcomings and associated risks.

This joint Intel white paper explores how to address virtualization in an environment with high I/O. The paper includes a technology overview, network concerns and explains how Virtuozzo and Intel are well suited for the high I/O environment.
Enterprises and equipment vendors are learning the value of a complete readiness assessment before deploying VoIP across an organization. The assessments are a critical step to a successful VoIP deployment, but many enterprises do not perform an assessment because of cost or because after performing a baseline on network utilization, they assume that their network has enough bandwidth to accommodate the voice traffic. This white paper explains why it is essential to perform a readiness assessment both for initial VoIP deployment and also for expansion projects to avoid unplanned additional costs and deployment delays.
With increasing bandwidth demands, network professionals are constantly looking to optimize network resources, ensure adequate bandwidth, and deliver high performance. Often, buying more bandwidth is not a priority or an option due to limited budgets and pressure to reduce IT costs.
When a business expands an existing facility,
adds a new location, incorporates an influx of
new users, or upgrades an existing infrastructure
- it's vital to ensure network readiness and
validate infrastructure changes to optimize
network performance, minimize user downtime
and reduce problems after implementation. This
white paper describes a methodology to manage
network changes that meets the need for speed
of implementation without sacrificing accuracy.
Network installers have completed a new
local area network segment. New cabling
was installed to the appropriate work areas
from the equipment closets. New switches
and access points were installed, patched into
the cabling plant and configured. How will the
network perform? This newly installed network
needs to be validated to prove the installation
was done correctly, that the LAN will operate
trouble-free, and that users will be satisfied
with the performance.
An Ethernet service provider needs to demonstrate to his customer that the service he is providing is compliant with the service level agreement. A network installer needs to demonstrate the functionality of a newly turned-up Ethernet link. A network troubleshooter needs to resolve complaints about slow networks. Ethernet performance measurement can help. Various metrics can quantify and characterize performance. Test plans can be written to satisfy varying organizational objectives. This white paper will describe advancements in field measurement of end-to-end Ethernet performance.
This white paper describes the surveillance video multicasting technology, highlights the benefits of IGMP as well as its integration in Korenix devices for assuring high quality video communication in surveillance applications.
Solarflare’s creation of a ‘virtualization aware’ smart network adapter and modified Xen will allow direct, but safe, access to such adapters from guest operating systems in order to improve network performance.
