Network attached storage 

Networks share a common problem - where will the data be stored?

Storage Area Networks 

The concept for Storage Area Networks, or SANs, was born out of the need to protect the most essential byproduct of a workstation or network server - the data. SANs serve one purpose: to aggregate data storage resources to a single repository. Centralization of data is more reliable and allows a higher degree of scalability than other distributed network models.

Gigabit Ethernet 

In 1998, the IEEE adopted the standard defining one Gigabit (1Gb) Ethernet over fiber optic cabling. In June of 1999, the standard defining 1 Gigabit Ethernet, or 1000BaseT, over copper pairs was ratified.

Building an intranet 

Most stations are using the Web as a means to communicate with listeners and as a means to extend marketing efforts.

Control over IP
