Network Speed and Transmission of Information (continuation) Introduction Given the highly mobile aspects of the company's workforce, it is recommended that between the options of Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) using Secured Sockets Layer (SSL) or IPSec, that the former is much more aligned to their business strategies today and future growth. The intent of these recommendations is to provide guidance on how to best implement DHCP over a SSL so that Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) can also be used. DHCP over SSL-Configured Networks vs. Static Address IPSec Configurations A technical analysis has been completed, comparing IPSec relative to SSL, the latter of which would require a VPN connection to ensure security and stability of connection. It is highly recommended by Cisco that for organizations who have a very mobile workforce and strong upside potential for greater growth in terms of headcount in the future, that DHCP dynamic addressing over an SSL configured network protected by VPN connections is the most cost- and performance-effective architecture (Cisco Tutorial, 2013). The table to the right provides a comparison of the technological and operational benefits of SSL versus IPSec VPN (Opus One, 2013) (Cisco Tutorial, 2013). Based on the analysis presented in the table, Comparing Technological And Operational Benefits Of SSL And IPSec VPNs, it is clear that SSL running on secured VPN connections is the best possible scenario.
