In the workplace, there are plenty of ways to secure your information. Whether you're using a Virtual Private Network or keeping your data stored on a flash drive, never underestimate the importance of backing up your data. However, while many businesses strive to keep their information secure, why exactly is backing up your data so important? If there's one thing to remember...
The Promise of 5G Telecommunication In July, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) allocated 11 gigahertz of frequency to 5G telecommunication, bringing it a huge step closer to reality. 5G will not only provide faster communication speeds than existing 4G connections, but provide a variety of service types for different applications. 5G will make it easier to connect many devices on a...
Software-defined networking (SDN) is an important component in today's networking environment.

Previously, in Part 1, we discussed how the old Internet Protocol scheme, IPv4, creates complications for VoIP connections. The long-term solution to the problem is IPv6. Version 6, which has been around since the turn of the century, uses 128-bit addresses instead of 32-bit ones. The number of addresses this version allows is hard to imagine. If you had a hundred million kilograms of hydrogen, yo...
IP addresses are familiar sights on the Internet. They're the sequence of four numbers separated by dots, such as 192.168.1.0. They uniquely identify a device to the rest of the Internet. There's just one problem: Using the traditional scheme known as IPv4, there aren't enough IP addresses to go around. Each of the numbers is in the range of 0 to 255, making up a 32-bit address. This gives 4,294,9...
Video conferences are a wonderful tool. Talking about business matters face to face without leaving the office can speed up agreements while saving time and money. However, using the tools carelessly can give away business secrets. The people you talk with may work with you in some ways but compete in others. They might find it tempting to learn a bit more...
Each and every device that connects to the Internet is given its own unique address — known as an IP address. Unfortunately, as more and more devices connect to the Internet — such as laptops, tablets, smartphones, and even some devices that you wear — the Internet has been running out of unique addresses. The Internet Protocol (IP), or the rules that govern how data transmits acro...
A moderately large set of offices has lots of cables for computers, phones, and peripherals. If technicians just added cables as needed, without any overall plan, they'd soon find themselves entangled in a mass of spaghetti. Fortunately, a structured cabling system — a set of cabling and connectivity products that integrates your building's data, video and management systems — provides a...
