Local Area Networks (LAN)
We can provide assistance in planning and configuration of your local network including desktop computers, servers, wireless access points and Internet connections.
Network security issues
We can assist with selection and configuration of routers, firewalls, servers and anti-virus software to promote network integrity. In this way your computers and data are better protected against computer hackers and service disruption.
Virtual Private Networks (VPN)
We can set up secure encrypted private networks over the Internet for you. This allows your computers to securely and seamlessly access files on remote servers as if they were drives on local computers. It also lets computers at multiple sites share data as if they were at the one site.
We can help you choose between different Internet access approaches to find one that suits your operations and needs.
Networked applications and databases
We can develop approaches for you to provide data reliably across the Internet using databases distributed on different servers and potentially in different countries.
IPv6 networking represents a challenge. It is substantially different to IPv4. Forward planning is essential and we can help you with this.
Standard Internet connections are based on an addressing protocol called IPv4. The theoretical limit of this protocol has been reached. This issue has been foreseen for about the last 15 years and an enhanced underlying protocol called IPv6 has been developed.
At some stage over the next few years almost all computers, routers and associated equipment will need to support IPv6. For example Windows7 fully supports IPv6, but many other earlier operating systems do not.
We can help you prepare and make this change through advising on appropriate purchasing, deployment and configuration of hardware and software for your business.
