These are some of the day-to-day applications that make collaboration easy for everyone. Each business will have their own way to do things and need specific applications like a “Time Management Sheet” or “To-do” tool. We assist business with identifying their requirements and finding the correct applications to streamline Business. We set up training to ensure that everyone is well informed as to how these applications work and comfortable to use them on a daily basis.
In computing, a firewall is a network security system that mo nitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules. A firewall typically establishes the first barrier between a trusted internal network and untrusted external network, such as the Internet.
Firewalls are often categorised as either network firewalls or host-based firewalls. Network firewalls filter traffic between two or more networks and run on network hardware. Host-based firewalls run on host computers and control network traffic in and out of those machines.
A firewall is a system designed to prevent unauthorised access to or from a private network. We implement a firewall in either hardware or software form, or a combination of both. Firewalls prevent unauthorised internet users from accessing private networks connected to the internet, especially intranets.
2. Fiber and Wireless
Fiber-optic cable systems convert packets of data — images, text, video, emails — into a stream of light. The light travels through the cable from sender to the receiver, which converts it back into its original form. Wireless communication converts the data it transmits into electromagnetic waves for broadcasting. Both alternatives have advocates who rate them as the superior communication medium.
In theory, a wireless network can transmit data at the same speed as optical fiber. In practice, fiber-optics attain higher maximum speeds. This is particularly true when networks become congested, as all users of wireless networks share the same bandwidth. The more users at any one time, the more congested and slower the wireless network becomes. Optical fiber is capable of much faster speeds than current networks provide. If the company upgrades its other equipment, fiber-optic cables can send faster messages.
Wireless signals degrade with distance: The further away the user is from the broadcast station, the weaker the signal. Fiber-optic wires can convey a clear signal much farther: A user at any point gets the same signal as someone many miles down the line. Wireless communication, however, can reach users who are so isolated or rural that it’s too expensive to run cables out to them.
