No matter how large or small your business, it depends on the reliable flow of data. From the emails your customers send to the data resources your employees rely on, you need to know that information can flow into and around your business smoothly, quickly and securely. Choosing the right switching and wireless solutions for the job from the often-bewildering range on offer will help to lower your operating costs and drive profits higher.On or off the Cloud
Working with the right suppliers means that you can tailor your network to meet your needs today yet make sure it is flexible enough to grow with your business in the future. Wireless solutions can be combined with hard wired elements to create a unique configuration designed to deliver the access you need, when and where you need it.
Servers, end point devices and people are only as effective as the networks that connect them. Configuring data and communications networks optimally can deliver a competitive advantage if data is allowed to flow optimally, resiliently and securely around the organisation, which is why connectivity provision is every bit as important as the components it connects.Ethernet Reliability
The enormous range of Ethernet connectivity possibilities can be confusing for even the most experienced ICT professional. What’s needed is reliable, glitch-free data connectivity so your employees can communicate with colleagues, share resources and collaborate across the organisation as needed. Scoping requirements, understanding current and future needs and making the right network choices is often best done with the help of a partner with specialist knowledge of the market. It’s also the best way to minimise expenditure whilst establishing a solid foundation on which to build and evolve your business networks.
For speed, flexibility, security and scalability, you need to control your WiFi connectivity solution via the cloud. Instead of directly managing your wireless solution yourself, your network operator can be responsible for increasing capacity to meet demand, take extending coverage and increasing connection speeds.A Simplified Approach to Wireless Management
A simplified wireless management solution can drive efficiency. It’s also great for reliability, and results in less down time and fewer support calls – so your business works smarter, not harder. With management control in the hands of your own network operator, you’re free to work on the day to day operations of your business. With none of the technical overheads of operating, supporting or managing a WiFi network, it’s an efficient and cost-effective benefit.

#3 Connectivity and Support at Home
Working from home is now an everyday reality for many of our customers and network issues can be a challenge
As schools have now closed and other businesses have also sent people home, many home workers are struggling with ensuring they can run their real-time work apps such as Voice and Video conferencing without interference from other people, who are also working from home or using other online content
A Hackers Guide to Remote Working
Remote working for a hacker is brilliant, and not in the sense that they can work from home in a dark room wearing a hoodie. But because remote working means that a business is intentionally giving a path into the internal network that could potentially be accessed by anyone on the internet. This blog post covers some of the things that we have encountered across the team over the years.
#2 Your Cyber Security
If you are allowing devices to connect from people’s houses – it's possible that these networks have already been compromised by hackers or will be in the future. Implementing two-factor authentication, where another device like a mobile phone is used for extra security is the most important security measure that can be applied to systems.
#1 Your Telephony
As the Covid-19 situation looks set to escalate, there's a lot to think about to keep your business running. Last week we shared the Top 10 areas we've focused on to ensure our own business continuity.
From today, we'll be going into these in more detail, setting out what we've learnt and offering specific guidance and support. Let's start with telephony.
About six months ago, with the slow death rattles of the exquisite Empire C2 drawing near, not going to lie I'm still in mourning – that and python2, I was on the hunt for a new platform to sink my teeth into. While playing around with various frameworks on offer such as SilentTrinity, Faction, Merlin (all of which have their positives), I started looking at Cobbr's Covenant framework....
