Integrated Service Digital Network
This is a telecommunication service, which is designed for cost- effective transmission of data. This data transmission is for alternating traffic amid local area networks (LAN) and amid endpoints in a Wide Area Network (WAN). It puts data in a changeable-size unit named a frame. Then it leaves some essential error rectification (data retransmission) to the endpoints that accelerate overall transmission of data (Dean, 2010).
Integrated Service Digital Network (ISDN)
This is an original internet service of high-speed. It sparked the development of high-speed internet amid service givers in the 1990’s. Moreover, it revolutionized the use of the internet. Much similar to its precursor, the service of dial-up internet, ISDN uses a phone line. In addition, it put the standard for the telephone data service (Dean, 2010).
It enables the hook up of the local cable TV line to a PC and receives data close to 1.5 Mbps. This device is addable to or can be integrated by a set-top box, which provides a TV set with Internet access channels. Commonly, they are provided as part of the service of cable access. Furthermore, they are not bought directly and set up by the subscriber (Sobh, Elleithy, &. Mahmood, 2010).
Other Network Transmissions
Other network transmissions include (Ec-Council, 2009):
Repeaters (Multiplexers and Concentrators)
Gateways and Bridges
Switches, Hubs, Wireless Access Points, and Routers
Conventional Dial-up Modems
As the Sr. System Administrator of Minnesota Consulting Group, I would recommend RFID (radio frequency identification), portable cell phones and handheld inventory scanners to Star Clothing. This is because the company can use RFID in reducing theft. Moreover, the company can also use handheld inventory scanners in the control of inventories. In addition, the portable cell phones are cost-effective ways of communications between different departments of Star Clothing.
