Networking

Cabling & Networking

Networking is what holds the internet together and it's what holds organisations together. If not for networking, you would not be able to make phone calls, browse the Internet, send an e-mail or even watch television. Computer networks are now absolutely essential for communication and information storage. Network cables can connect many different types of devices such as computers, servers, printers, routers and switches. An office of standalone computers can be turned into a powerful network with a small amount of the right equipment. This can change the way you work and increase efficiency.

With there being so much networking equipment on the market, such as routers, hubs and switches, it's hard to know which is the right thing to buy. Code Blast can advise you on what options you have and what solution is the best for your organisation.

Wireless Networking

Wireless networking is a way of allowing computers or other devices to communicate without the use of cabling. This can be very useful in instances where the network only needs to be temporary or if building to building communication is required without having to dig a trench. Wireless networking is especially prevalent in places like airports, train stations and many other public areas. In these public areas where wireless is available, it is possible to become connected to the Internet in a matter of minutes or sometimes seconds.

In a business scenario, it is especially important to secure your wireless communications. If the communication isn't secure, the wireless data can be eavesdropped and copied. Worse still, your network could be compromised by hackers with malicious intent. It is of critical importance that wireless communications be secured in a business environment. Code Blast can install, configure and secure wireless networking in your organisation with little or no disruption to your business.

Firewall Security

The job of a firewall is to filter information that flows in and out of your network. This technology enables organisations to select which type of network traffic should be permitted or denied. Many firewalls now have options for anti-virus, anti-spam, anti-spam as well as content filtering. This means that you can permit certain types of incoming traffic while blocking certain types of websites from your employees.

VPN

A VPN is a Virtual Private Network, the two main types are branch VPNs and home user/mobile VPNs.

A branch VPN allows you to connect to another office by using what's known as a "secure tunnel" over the internet. This means that you don't have to have expensive cables laid in order to communicate with remote offices. As long as both sites have an internet connection, then you can communicate with remote offices in any part of the world. 

A home user/mobile VPN is very similar to a branch VPN in that members of staff who are mobile or home based can still connect up to the office to retrieve and respond to e-mail or edit documents like they were actually in the office.

Code Blast can install and configure remote office solutions to fit your organisation's requirements.
