DHCP

The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is used to dynamically allocate IP addresses and configuration details to hosts from a pool of IP addresses, reducing the need for users or administrators to configure these manually.

DHCP servers are typically configured on routers or standalone servers, and will require centralised management.

IP Performance offer two DHCP Management solutions, which are architected in different ways, and which cover the requirements of organisations large and small.
