  1. Management Information Systems

  2. Agenda • Warriors - video (10 mins) • Telecommunication trends • The Internet, Intranet, Extranet

  3. Basic Components of a Network Model • Let’s watch a video • Some definitions • Ping of Death – DoS attack – a packet sent by a hacker • Port – interface of a computer application through which data are sent and received • 80 – Internet, 25 – email

  4. Telecommunication Trends

  5. Telecommunications-Based Services

  6. Internet Networking Technologies • Internet networking technologies are being used as technology platform • Web browser suites • HTML Web page editors • Network management software • Firewalls • Being applied in Internet, intranet, and extranet applications • Reinforces previous move toward client/server networks based on open-systems architecture

  7. Open Systems • Open systems use common standards for hardware, software, applications, and networks • Internet networking technologies are a common standard for open systems • Connectivity • Open systems provide greater connectivity and network interoperability • Middleware may be needed to help diverse systems work together

  8. Middleware • Middleware • A general term for any programming that mediates between two separate programs • Allows a particular database to access other databases without custom programming • Commonly known as the “glue” of an information system • It routes data and information between back-end data sources and end user applications • An essential component of any IT infrastructure

  9. Digital Network Technologies • Telecommunications are being revolutionized by switch from analog to digital • Analog: voice-oriented transmission • Digital: discrete pulse transmission • Benefits • Higher transmission speeds • Moves larger amounts of information • Greater economy and much lower error rates • Transmits multiple types of communications (data, voice, video) on the same circuits

  10. The Internet Revolution • The Internet has become a global information superhighway • Millions of smaller, private networks operating independent of, or in harmony with, each other • 10 servers in 1991 to over 46 million today • Sustained growth in excess of 1 million servers per month • No central computer system • No governing body • Based on common standards

  11. Internet2 • Next generation of the Internet • High-performance • Different infrastructure than the current Internet • Will not replace the current Internet • In use at over 200 universities, scientific institutions, communications corporations • May never become totally open • Users are connected via a backbone that supports throughput of 10 Gbps • Infinite bandwidth • Over 4 million users

  12. Internet Service Providers • ISP • A company that specializes in providing easy access to the Internet • For a monthly fee, provides software, user name, password, and Internet access • ISPs themselves are connected to one another through network access points • One ISP can easily connect to another to obtain addresses of websites or user nodes

  13. Business Use of the Internet

  14. Intranets as Information Portals

  15. Extranets • Network links that use Internet technologies to connect the intranet of a business to the intranets of another • Virtual Private Networks • Direct private network links, or private secure Internet links between companies • Firewalls and encryption

  16. Extranet Connectivity
