An extranet is a controlled private network that allows access to partners, vendors and suppliers or an authorized set of customers – normally to a subset of the information accessible from an organization's intranet. An extranet is similar to a DMZ in that it provides access to needed services for authorized parties, without granting access to an organization's entire network.

What is the reliability of a modem if the MTBF is 3000 hours and a transaction takes 20 minutes, or 1/3 of an hour (0.333 hours):

equation:

  R(t) = e -bt

  in which:  b = 1/MTBF

  t = the time interval of the operation

e= 2.718

–R(0.333 hours) = e -(1/3000)(0.333)

= e -0.000111

= 0.99989

Availability% = (Total available time – Downtime) / Total available time

Calculate the  availability of a modem for one month (24 hours per day for 30 days, or 720 hours), knowing the modem will be down for 2 hours during that period:

 

 Availability% = (720 – 2) / 720

    = 0.997
