Apple Devices use a “zero configuration network” (Zeroconf) protocol called Bonjour. This protocol, designed for home networks,  enable the automatic and easy discovery of computers, devices, and services on IP networks - eliminating the need to set up IT servers for services such as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, DNS, and DNS Service Directory.

At the enterprise, there are two downsides of the Apple Bonjour protocol - Bonjour generates a lot of chatty traffic or “noise” on the network, and it cannot go across subnets or Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs).

With this paper you will learn about:

  • An overview of the Apple Bonjour protocol
  • The benefits of the Apple Bonjour protocol and challenges in the enterprise
  • Current Bonjour gateway solutions - how they work and their challenges with scalability
  • The Enterasys approach to managing Apple Bonjour devices and how it solves the scalability issue
