post is part of a new series called CommScope Definitions, in which common
communication network industry terms are explained.Successful
businesses must be able to depend on IT infrastructure that’s fast, flexible
and able to adapt quickly to fast-changing market trends in our 24-hour world.
At the same time, these businesses must also minimize expensive downtime.
Considering that almost a third of downtime can be attributed to human error, a
better-managed network should display greater independence and intelligence,
proactively alerting administrators to small problems before they become big expensive
On top of all this, a
better-managed network must bend the cost curve to its advantage, both in the
short and long term. This means reducing the network’s energy and space
requirements as well as mapping out an intelligent upgrade path. A
better-managed network must deliver all these advantages so businesses can stay
ahead of a fast-changing marketplace—and ahead of the competition.
This is where an intelligent
infrastructure solution comes into play. An intelligent infrastructure solution
is a combination of software, network connections and sensors in the data
center that provide updated documentation that can take the guesswork out of
what cables are connected where, making the job of managing networks much
easier. They will also assist with finding a device’s physical location in the
network with an IP device discovery. Because these solutions can help to diagnose
and resolve problems quickly, they minimize costly downtime and improve the
total quality experience of the data center.
infrastructure solutions give technicians and IT managers the ability to
improve speed and accuracy of connectivity changes to various end-devices such
as computers and servers, wireless access points, IP phones, IP cameras,
network printers, managed switches and power distribution units globally from one location.
intelligent infrastructure, customers can deploy and evolve their platform to
accommodate future change while enabling better alignment of their IT with
their business operations through a high degree of flexibility, allowing them
to change business strategies to adapt to rapidly changing global, economic and
