More and more companies around the world are realising the benefits of collaborating on a single set of standards-based IP protocols," said Michael Cronk, AIMS board chair.
Christian Benvenuti's Understanding Linux Network Internals (0596-002556, $49.95) provides a guide to networking on Linux which explores how its IP protocols work.
"Because it utilizes industry-standard server platforms and standards-based IP protocols, the SnowShore IP Media Server can leverage the ongoing evolution of network architectures and processor technology to deliver a media processing solution for next-generation IP applications."
The EXS platform offers developers and service providers significant investment protection because existing applications can be modified as needed to support emerging IP protocols. This allows these applications to be delivered in next-generation networks with minimal impact on the functionality of the application, or the end-user experience of existing subscribers.

To make the devices themselves cost-effective, fast and compatible with all the IP protocols entails highly integrated ASICs.
Other features include protection against malicious attacks or break-ins, support for wire-speed forwarding and routing for IP and IPX and full support for IP protocols such as RIP-I and OSPF.
In addition to leveraging an existing infrastructure, IP protocols are standard and well understood by information technology professionals, which in turn can dramatically reduce the learning curve and expense of adapting IP-based solutions.
Well-known IP protocols such as NFS used to use a basic data transport mechanism called UDP (user datagram protocol), which was only semi-unreliable.
