KeyInfo™ focuses on borderless networks with an emphasis on the latest technologies in routing and switching, mobility, cyber security, and wireless solutions. As a dedicated Cisco Partner, we have a strong investment in the next generation of Cisco solutions which includes Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) through an integrated architecture that uses a common policy-based operating model across ACI-ready network and security elements.
Converged Networking – Reduces cabling complexity and along with components of software-defined networking mitigates potential errors due to cable mismanagement or physical media failures. In addition, capital expenditures are reduced by eliminating the need for multiple/different types of adapters. Reduced operational expenses are achievable, as fewer physical adapters contribute to lower overall power consumption.
Service Provider Networking
Data Center Switching – Architectures are undergoing a significant evolution. The traditional data center “Core-Distribution-Access” layers are flattening into more robust and fault-tolerant Spine and Leaf architectures. Key Information Systems has a long and successful record of providing highly-resilient and adaptable Service Provider Networking. Our latest upgrade to the Cisco Nexus 9000 Application-Centric Infrastructure and Spine and Leaf architecture connected via 40Gb Fiber ensures that the superlative levels of service enjoyed by our customers for the past fifteen years will not only sustain but improve. Key Information Systems network engineering staff can provide complex and robust networking solutions to your organization as a service, or can implement them for your organization in either an on-premises or hybrid model via our experienced Professional Services Group.
Advanced carrier routing – As Virtualization moves more significantly into the network the associated technologies must keep pace. The Aggregation Service Routing (ASR) platform implements state-of-the-art route processors with integrated software-enabled services that increase both hardware density and service agility resulting in lower overall space/power/cooling costs and lower provisioning times. Aggregation Services Routers are capable of performing BGP, MPLS, VPN, IPS, and a number of other functions on the same hardware platform, leaving behind the legacy 1:1 service-to-hardware ratio.
BGP/FCP – Traditional BGP routing, while still the standard for Service Provider/Internet routing does not take into account the validity of the routing information received from upstream routers. To address this issue and ensure our client’s traffic is following the most efficient and expeditious path to realize the highest performance Key Information Systems implements the InterNap Flow Control Platform (FCP). FCP consumes data from a SPAN port and performs network-level analysis across multiple hosts throughout the world via our providers. Based on the analysis of the results FCP will tune routes or create more specific routing entries to ensure customer traffic is always traversing the most reliable, highest-speed links.
