This chapter examined the infrastructure necessary for an organization to carry out e-business operations successfully. Network infrastructure, consisting of switches, bridges and routers, multilayer switching, VLANs, LANs and WANs was described in detail. Switches are used for temporarily connecting two machines in the network.
Bridges are used for connecting machines in the LAN or machines in the same segment of a network. Routers perform the same function as bridges, but they also filter the information passing through a network. VLANs are virtual LANs that don't have any physical connections.
The chapter also discussed various e-business integration tools like middleware, message oriented middleware, and remote procedure calls. Finally, the chapter described the different types of e-business architecture: reference architecture, logical architecture, technology architecture, and organizational architecture.
