Please don’t give me a two to three sentence replies. It has tolook burky. At least 7 to 8 sentences. Thank youFrom this Section is very ImportantResponded to discussion topic with well supported andoutside research or assigned readings as appropriate, addvalue to the discussion, and demonstrate student’sunderstanding of concepts.Reply needed 12. When choosing network hardware, why would it berecommended to standardize at least some types of hardware?What are some disadvantages to hardware standardization?When would you recommend hardware standardization orwould you recommend it at all?
Having fewer differing types of hardware and software allowsan organization to reduce its need for interoperability. Thatmeans fewer frustrations, lower costs, and more functionalitybetween devices. When things are designed from the groundup to work together, fewer problems arise duringimplementation. Conversely it is recommended to not “put allyour eggs in one basket”. Using different manufactures andmodels reduces the risk of a complete work stoppage if aparticular malfunction occurs with just that type oftechnology. There is no all-encompassing guiding principle ofwhen to pick a single source and when to spread the wealth.An example of when to standardize is when the risk of totalfailure of that system is low and its impact if that doeshappen is also low. If any technology provides akeyfunction to the continued success of an organization, I wouldensure there are differing types of technology that canprovide that and backups for emergencies.In a particular case, if I had already existing CISCO brandVoIP phones and was upgrading my call manager and/orswitch. I would probably lean towards choosing CISCO,because that VoIP phone hardware can lose its all or some ofits functionality when using a Juniper brand call manager.Those functionalities could be call waiting, having multiplephone extensions per device, voice mail. Losing some of
those utilities isn’t acceptable for any practical solution andwould be the proverbial straw that breaks the back in thatdecision.Standardizing Your IT Infrastructure. (n.d.).
