State of IP Telephony- September 2005 Over the past decade, there have been rapid changes in the way people and organizations communicate. Many of these changes spring from the explosive growth of the Internet and from applications based on Internet Protocol (IP). In the wake of these technology advances, voice and data traffic solutions are the next major applications to take full advantage of IP. As the enterprise faces new and growing demand from customers for greater accessibility, IP telephony is an increasingly important technology that supports business operations.
802.1x/Port Security - September 2005 Cisco switches that support both 802.1x security and Cisco IP Phones have the ability to differentiate between access of the voice VLAN by Cisco IP Phones and access of the data VLAN by devices connected to the auxiliary ports (daisy-chained) of IP Phones. Thus 802.1x port-level security can be achieved on switch ports connected to Cisco IP Phones which are, in turn, connected to end-user devices.
Cisco's CRS-1 Rounting Platform and the Future of IP Routing - May 2005 Steve works for the Carrier Core and Multiservice Business Unit (CCMSBU) which is responsible for delivering intelligent high-speed, high-density IP/MPLS edge and core products that form the foundation of the IP NGN with IOS XR. In addition, the ATM/FR switching as well as the high-end media gateway portfolio allows CCMSBU to work closely with service providers in developing and implementing migration strategies for these services onto IP/MPLS infrastructures. With the Cisco CRS-1, 12000, and MGX 8800/8900, CCMSBU enables the foundation of the IP NGN both at the converged edge as well as the core.
Before starting at Cisco, Steve worked for Exodus Communications for 7 years from 1995 to 2002 as a Sr. Network Architect, then at Procket Networks for 2 years, and came in to Cisco through the acquisition of Procket.
