The hardware used to run your network
The internet has become a daily necessity in life. In fact, the United Nations Human Rights Council has deemed it a Basic Human Right. What actually connects our computers to not only the internet, but the network at work, or a PC gaming party? There are quite a few pieces of hardware used in running […]
Network Latency and Throughput
Network latency and network throughput are terms that are often confused or even used as alternatives to each other. Latency and Throughput are totally different and you can have High Latency (Bad) and High Throughput (Good) or Low Latency (Good) and Low Throughput (Bad). As you can see from the examples mentioned, even the “High” […]
IPV6 Part 2 - Formats and special addresses
IPV6 Reduced Complexity IPV6 networking reduces the complexity of address planning and assigning addresses to networks. Instead of using a wide variety of IPV4 subnet lengths, it is best practice to use some standard prefix lengths to simplify things. IPV6 should be a breath of fresh air to those who toil with the scarcity constraints […]
