Recently, we recorded a webinar to explain a design concept frequently used by iparchitechs.com to build and migrate WISP, FISP and Telco networks – separation of network functions. It centers around simplification of roles within an ISP network. It also explores the use of lower-cost commodity network equipment to maximize the service area for a given ISP footprint while meeting key requirements like scale, redundancy and capacity.
Topics that were covered include:
- What are network functions?
- Design examples for WISP/FISP and Telco
- Equipment and budget considerations
Here is an example of solving design/operational issues with network function separation:
