All about Routers and Ports

Routers are another important part of technology that has developed well. They are in every electronic store you can imagine. What an advantage it is that we can have a device that organizes and protects our internet use. When your computer browsing different websites the router will send traffic to and from where it’s needed. At the same time using encryption to protect your information from hackers.

There are many scary moments of where someone personal information was stolen. But the bringing of WEP and other protection methods of internet use has been a great way and advantage to the PC user. Being on a personal home PC should be a safe experience.

There are some who have enough experience and know how and when to loom for computer security attacks. Having a computer ramped with hackers and spyware can be very uncomfortable. That’s why routers, antivirus software, and other security measures are good.

One great security we have that comes with routers is the ability to have port selection. Every router has the ability to have certain ports that can be open and closed. Make the ports that you use for friend gaming closed and only open to your friends.

Playing games or having a chat with friends only to have someone hack in would be sad. What a bummer if one didn’t know as well. Playing games and having other pc activities done through a router and ports can be a very pleasant experience. As it cuts down on lagging from so many wanting to connect and interact with others online.

Need Fiber Optic Networks

A fiber termination kit is very handy for fiber optic termination as well as for splicing and testing purposes. These kits are essential parts of any fiber optic expert since it helps make their job much easier.

You want to make sure that you get a kit with all the right instruments. You will be needing electrical tape, kelvar scissors, a set of screwdrivers, tweezers and pliers. That’s not all, you might also need safety glasses since you do not want to damage your eyes It is always better to come well prepared in advance to prevent any accidents.

Another handy thing that comes in a good fiber termination kits is a black marker for creating precise marks, this prevents mistakes. Also, an emergency lamp is also something to keep by your side.

There are a few more tools that come in such a kit but we just mentioned the main ones. All of these tools come in a hard plastic tool case that is easy to carry around and durable. This way, you will not worry about dropping it during work.

A fiber optic tester

In order to test fiber optic networks, you will need to have a good quality tester. These equipments come in a variety of models. These testers are for checking the length, fiber loss, locating events on the cables and other characteristic of the fiber.

An important feature of a good fiber optic tester is a screen whose results are visible even outdoors. This type of screen makes reading the results convenient. The tester also needs to be durable and moisture-proof so that it can function even in wet weather.

Industrial Touch Panel

• Easy interface – With the absence of buttons and switches, there is a larger area for interface design. When setting up the programs or the software for the panel, people have a wider space and thus allowing people to use and view several widgets on a single screen.

• Fast sensing abilities – When a person uses the keyboard or the mouse to use the varied functions of the computer, it takes time for the computer to receive the command and act upon it. While a touch panel receives the commands faster with just a single touch.

• Resistant to natural conditions – Most industrial panels are exposed to the public where there are times people put in higher physical effort to operate the device or let the panel get exposed to weather conditions; it is at these times that the panels are resistive to such external changes. They are covered with necessary protection to make it resistant to external force.

• Cost effective – With most computer technologies opting for touch panels, it has become cheaper to manufacture them as compared to computers with keyboards and other components. It is cheap to purchase, install as well as saves up on money for the long term as it lasts longer that the other monitors.

Use Mac for Business

That said there are a lot of times when Apple Mac computers are better for business. Any time you have graphic design involved for example. Mac computers dominate this industry with their large high resolution screens and amazing graphic software. Almost every web design, printing or graphic design company I’ve been in use Mac computers exclusively.

A Mac computer is also a good choice for a small one or two person office simply because they are so versatile out of the box. If you’re a small business owner without many staff the answer to “Should I use a Mac for my business?” might be a solid yes. You’ll be wearing many hats in this case including designing your own logos and marketing materials or maybe even creating your own website all of which Mac computers are very good at.

With the release of Microsoft Office for Mac, you can still use Outlook, Word, Excel etc which makes it easier for those making the switch. There is certainly a learning curve involved, however, as the operating systems are quite different but the basic concepts like files, folders, copy, cut, paste, and the like are the same.

Being an IT professional I get into a lot of different offices running a lot of different businesses. I’d say 90% of the time they are all Windows based. Microsoft still dominates the business world by far. I will say though, I’ve seen an increase in the adoption of Mac and we are getting more and more orders for Macs these days through our sales department.
