IT Network Core/Aggregation
Picture the “core” of your IT network as the place where aggregated traffic moves at turbo speed among the on- and off-ramps. This mass of IT traffic represents thousands of various relationships among your users, applications, servers and more. What does this mean for your company? When the nodes within your network core are interconnected in the most efficient and optimal manner, your network will perform its best for your business, from server all the way to end user. That’s where NCC Data comes in.
A well-designed hierarchy for your network core brings a number of benefits to your company’s IT infrastructure:
- easier router configurations
- simpler troubleshooting
- logical gateways for future segmenting of the network
- data packet switching to scale
In the world of data networks, intelligent hierarchies are essential. Early data network cores provided the basic need for communication between a central mainframe and various terminals, and required a simple hierarchy. Today's enterprise and peer-to-peer networks, however, need a design to constantly accommodate for the changing number of players as well as aggregated traffic from voice, video on demand, Internet access, and broadcast TV. The best core networks aggregate the various traffic flows, providing a scalable and cost-effective distribution.
NCC Data’s network consultants bring expertise in designing a hierarchy of any size, from local to nationwide, which marries your network core with its aggregated traffic.
