Tulip Infotech is thoroughly experienced in all the major network types, and can guide you in making the best choices to meet your needs. Common network types with which we include:
Cable Networks - These cable networks designed by Tulip Infotech can handle the latest gigabit Ethernet and voice technology. Tulip Infotech can design and install a cabling infrastructure to meet your requirements today, with the flexibility to accommodate future growth and demands.
Wireless Networks - For smaller or more dynamic environments, a wireless network
Network Functional Solutions
may be a surprisingly cost-effective alternative solution to cabling. Internet connectivity
by utilizing new xDSL technology and secure firewalls can provide fast internet and
inter-site access to meet your exact requirements.
Client-Server Network Solutions
Client-Server networks are comprised servers - typically powerful computers running advanced network operating systems - and user workstations (clients) which access data or run
applications located on the servers. Servers can host e-mail; store common data files and serve powerful network applications such as Microsoft's SQL Server. As a centerpiece of the network, the server validates logins to the network and can deny access to both networking resources as well as client software. Servers are typically the center of all backup and power protection schemas. While it is technically more complex and secure, the Client-Server network is easier than ever to administer due to new centralized management software. It is also the most "scaleable" network configuration; additional capabilities can be added with relative ease. The drawbacks to the Client-Server model are mostly financial. There is a large cost up front for specialized hardware and software. Also, if there are server problems, down time means that users lose access to mission-critical programs and data until the server can be restored.
Computer Services & Custom Computers
Peer-to-Peer Network Solutions
Peer-to-Peer networks are typically installed in smaller offices. A Peer-to- Peer network links each computer together and allows sharing of files and
resources on an individual basis. Each workstation is responsible for regulating and
sharing its own resources --be it a printer, a fax/modem, important data, or something
else. All software programs are run on each computer locally. Peer-to-Peer solutions have a lower cost in hardware: all you need are cables, network cards, a hub and network operating systems like Microsoft XP Professional. Adding new resources to the network is simple, usually involving adding additional workstations, or installing new software packages. The drawbacks of the Peer-to-Peer model are higher ongoing administration costs, limited security, scalability and virtually non-existent fault tolerance.
