Network Gateway Technology: The Issue of Redundancy towards Effective Implementation

P Imiefoh

Abstract


The Internet has provided advancement in the areas of network and networking facilities. Everyone connected to the Internet is concerned about two basic things: the availability of network services and the speed of the network. Network gateway redundancy technology falls within these categories and happens to be one of the newest technologies which only few companies, such as mobile companies and other corporate business ventures have adopted. Network gateway redundancy technology makes it possible for computer devices to have access to multiple exit and entry points in the network, thus, eliminates the problem of a single point failure in both Ethernet and Internet networking systems. For effective implementation of network gateway redundancy, however, ideal focus should be on the success factors, such as ease of configuration, stability of large systems, and flow identification.
