For the operation of any information system, a correctly constructed cable network is required that combines computers, telephones and peripheral equipment. The construction of a cable network will allow employees to access all the information resources of the enterprise. Integrated video surveillance and access control systems will provide an appropriate level of physical and information access within the information system.
Cable computer networks
A cable computer network is a combination of cables, connectors, panels and switchgears, components of an information system forming a single information space. The construction of a computer network will allow for the sharing of corporate resources (information and computing) by employees of the enterprise.
To build an enterprise information system, a telecommunication infrastructure is needed that combines cable, wireless computer networks of central offices with regional branches into a single information space for transmitting various information.
Wireless computer networks
Modern wireless networks of companies are implemented on the basis of Wi-Fi – wireless technology for transmitting data over the radio channel. Using Wi-Fi when building corporate computer networks allows employees to gain freedom of movement within the office space, always staying connected to the information and computing resources of the enterprise and the Internet.
Territorially distributed computer networks of the company
Using VPN technology (Virtual Private Network) when building a distributed network of an enterprise allows you to combine the local computer networks of all geographically dispersed offices and branches of the enterprise through a secure connection into a single information structure, provides the sharing of corporate resources (information and computing) and the exchange of information.
As the company’s information system develops, there is a need to increase storage resources, so the requirements for systems that control networks and storage and data processing systems are high.
The scale of the main production processes, the size of the enterprise, the platforms and software used, as well as modern legislation form the criteria for choosing both the storage systems themselves and the connection methods or methods of delivering information to end consumers.
An enterprise’s IT infrastructure is a complex of information systems consisting of a set of specialized software, network services, a directory service, information security policies, data backup and storage systems, spam protection tools, etc. In total, the complex of systems determines the availability of business applications for employees and the possibility of business growth.
Composition of IT infrastructure:
- directory service;
- network services;
- file server;
- print server;
- spam protection;
- antivirus protection;
- backing up information;
- software version updates;
- secure internet access;
- database management;
- monitoring and management;
The directory service allows you to organize information on network resources (shared folders, print servers, printers, users, etc.) stored in a single place for a number of signs, which provides centralized management of both the resources themselves and information about them, and also allows control their use. In this way, the directory service solves resource administration tasks.
Typically, a directory service is implemented based on the commercial Microsoft products on which Active Directory is built. A directory service can be implemented based on the free Open Source platform.
Network services DHCP, DNS, WINS form the basis for the functioning of any computer network in an enterprise, and allow you to configure network interactions between computers, terminals and servers.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
– is a standard that simplifies the management of TCP / IP networks. DHCP eliminates the need to configure computers to work on the network manually.
DNS (Domain Name System)
– is an Internet name service that is used to find resources on the network and access them.
WINS (Windows Internet Name Service)
– is a Windows name service that provides distributed database support for dynamically registering and resolving NetBIOS names for computers and groups used on a network.
The file server is designed to support shared folders and store enterprise resource files. Adding the file server role will allow you to create a single logically named space for many shared folders located on different servers, delimit user access rights, search for documents in different formats in different languages, and configure a backup system.
A print server is used to provide and control user access to enterprise printers. The print server role allows you to manage printers through a web browser, print to a URL printer, configure failover network print clusters, and publish printers to the Active Directory so that users can search for printers based on location, color, and speed.
Email is one of the main IT tools for a successful business. Enterprises of all sizes and types of activities need to ensure that employees who are at home or on a business trip can have full access to all required service information, including via e-mail. The constant increase in business email correspondence strengthens the requirements for the reliability and availability of email systems.
The spam protection system is designed to combat unwanted electronic messages (spam) and is especially relevant for enterprises using email in their work. A large amount of spam can lead to the loss of important correspondence. Often spam contains viruses and malicious programs that can stop the work of an individual employee or even the whole enterprise, leading to financial losses. Using a spam protection system allows you to get rid of unwanted consequences.
The problem of combating viruses and malware is especially relevant for enterprises that use the Internet and email in their work. The virus can destroy important information or stop the work of an individual employee or even an entire unit for hours, resulting in financial losses and loss of trust on the part of customers and partners. Installing anti-virus protection promotes safe operation and minimizes the risks of potential threats.
Backing up information
The backup system is a service subsystem that is designed to create backup copies and restore information, therefore, even before the computer complex starts operating, it is necessary to design a backup system that will allow you to save information after hardware and software failures, human errors, and catastrophes.
Software Version Upgrade
For software to run smoothly, you must regularly install service packs. For centralized management of the software update process, specialized tools must be used.
Secure internet access
To protect the enterprise’s internal corporate environment from internal and external threats via the Internet, it uses a hybrid architecture based on a proxy server and a firewall, in-depth comprehensive content verification, detailed security policies and advanced warning and surveillance tools that can significantly simplify and secure access in Internet.
Database Management Systems (DBMS) – a set of software and hardware for general or special purposes. The DBMS is intended for recording, storing, monitoring the integrity of information, centralized management and organizing access to information for various users of the enterprise.
Monitoring and management
To ensure the continuous operation of the enterprise’s IT infrastructure, an automated monitoring system and continuous monitoring of the performance of IT systems are required. Rapid detection and timely elimination of failures in the IT infrastructure helps prevent business-critical IT systems from failing.
Service registration and incident management in the field of information technology. Melon service may be part of the system of accounting and management of information resources of the company.
