Elfiq Networks is a provider of innovative network performance solutions such as bandwidth management that help drive performance while simultaneously increasing reliability and consistency.
Some factors that need to be closely analyzed when developing a bandwidth management strategy include: implementing user-defined configurations for both traffic balancing and failover using multiple algorithms; using all links simultaneously; maintaining the ability to add all different types of IP links without being forced to change existing equipment; the number of managed IP addresses for additional links; quality of service (QOS) for marking, queuing and packet prioritization; strong DNS functions; outgoing traffic management; server availability verification which is completed before allowing traffic flow to be sent to the servers; obtaining quality metrics from each link to verify ISP performance and SLAs; multipath linking of sites to bring resilience to point-to-point applications such as IPSec VPN tunnels and VoIP multisite implementations; and inbound and outbound geographic link management that can easily prevent downtime while increasing business continuity and disaster recovery strategies within multiple sites.
Recently, Elfiq Networks revealed that in order to expand its presence within the bandwidth management industry, it will be attending this year’s HIMSS 2012 that is taking place from February 21- 23, 2012 in the Las Vegas Sands Hotel. This annual conference and exhibition is a not-to-miss event that brings together companies involved in the healthcare industry to collaborate on ideas, share best tips and practices and discuss future solutions and products. It is important that Elfiq attend this year’s conference, as it has met a large number of organizations in the healthcare field that need to enhance their bandwidth and business continuity posture, as the medial world has become dependent on Internet access in the last few years, according to Jean Pascal Hebert (News - Alert), vice president of Business Management at Elfiq Networks.
At the show, Elfiq will display its Link Balancers; the company will be showing organizations how to leverage this solution to create a comprehensive business continuity plan, and the Business Internet Access for Dummies Book will be showcased.
It is vital that anyone with a stake with systems connected to the Internet visit Elfiq’s booth from the CFO level down to the network administrator. At the show, “we hope to gain a better understanding of the market and meet new contacts,” Hebert added.
Although 2012 has only just begun, some emerging trends in the bandwidth management space include the fact that redundancy is no longer an option as downtime is extremely costly and can cause multiple adverse affects to any organization, application-level shaping is beginning to become increasingly popular and 3G/4G is continuing to be implemented within enterprises around the country.
