Dial in - Futures
Disappointed with outsourcing dial-in
Plan for direct dial-in PPP at < 56kbps
- Have a few users on xDSL thru Stanford
- higher speeds, leased line, double ISDN cost
- Couple of users trying cable modems
Disappointed with outsourcing dial-in.
Tried outsourcing via campus and Netcom. Performance of ISPs
generally poor & variable (packet loss), outside firewall, and userids/password
Since then also 56kbps standardized, campus also providing direct dial-in,
Both further out solutions are “leased line” non dial up connections, i.e. more
flat rate oriented. Their coverage is still spotty. Will require VPNs.
