With cloud technology taking over various industries, it comes as no surprise that more than 60% of the spending of the IT sector will be directed towards cloud-based services in the coming years. Although it has been a somewhat gradual process, but the shift towards cloud has already begun with a lot of companies offering cloud-based services and applications.
Blockchain – this is probably something that you have heard about, especially in the banking sector, where this new technology has definitely managed to catch interest. But what exactly is blockchain and how will it manage to “change everything” even the way we communicate through VoIP?
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti performed really well in the recent times according to the latest reviews that came out. New GPU of Nvidia can perform almost 35% faster than GTX 1080, which was claimed by company earlier. It was entirely based on Nvidia’s Pascal architecture, in which flagship gaming GPU includes, next gen 11-Gbps GDDR5X memory and also the 11-GB frame buffer. GTX 1080 Ti is available FOR $699 which as faster and more powerful as compared to the expensive Titan X Pascal, which have also been noticed by reviewers.
If you are in the market for unique and business class WLAN, then one of the most important decisions that you should make is the selection of traditional controller of on-premises or the solution for cloud-managed. Most of the organizations successfully manage WLAN with some of the WLAN controllers, but the WLAN which is cloud-managed has gained lot of attraction. The concept of shifting configuration and controlling the complete WLAN to cloud service provider is difficult to swallow for most of the veteran architects.
Interop ITX speaker has three important tips for making sure that WLAN has prepared itself well for internet of things. Most of the business leaders have this belief that internet of things which provides an opportunity for most of their organizations introduces new business models, enhances customer relationship and increases productivity.
As is the case generally, Cisco remained in the limelight for networking news in 2016. Last year turnover for the company showed a decline in earnings in terms of data center purchasing as buyers were hesitant to buy new switches and data products by virtue of uncertainty in the financial market. ‘Barefoot Networks’ initiated project to launch high speed programmable chips as the past year has seen the consistent growth of wireless LAN technology. Industry has seen persistent deployment of systems based on 802.11 ac specification. Researchers also came up with Wi-Fi related technology that could be used to locate people within any given premises. This has been beneficial for small businesses that were looking to take advantage of similar kind of technology but was unable to afford it. Cisco also introduced new cloud based multigigabit switch with the addition of desk phones for one of its wireless unit.
If it’s taking long to stream your video online, instead of cursing your service provider time has come to upgrade your Wi-Fi router. Despite the numerous advantages of the Wi-Fi technology, it has been rather baffling for many users to get the consistent speed due to the many reasons such as close by interference, router’s location and device’s distance from the router. Having said that, sometimes other electronic devices nearby (television, microwaves) could also cause some distraction. Luckily there are defined ways through which internet speed could be fixed. If you have ever gone through router’s settings, you may have noticed availability of more than one channels. Selecting the appropriate channel would help in getting the consistency in terms of the speed.
Channel one, six and eleven
Wi-Fi devices transmits in numerous frequencies. The typical home network utilizes small range of 2.4 GHz – 5 GHz for one transmission. By virtue of ability of signals to go through walls, generally 2.4 GHz is deemed enough for a medium sized home but 5 GHz is recommended to get the maximum speed. Any typical version of the Wi-Fi router works within the frequency of 2400-2500MHz. This is divided further into channels as 2.4GHz connection usually entails 14 channels. These channels are separated by only 5MHz range apart from 12 MHz space immediately before the 14th channel. Channels convergence mainly results in slow internet speed.
Only channels 1,6 and 11 are spaced adequately which keeps the Wi-Fi speed consistent. It is always recommended to use only these channels to minimize the distraction. Choose 5GHz connection having embedded free space as it constitutes 23 non-overlapping channels. Go for 802.11n wireless device as it automatically alters the best channel that could deliver the maximum speed.
