I would like to take the opportunity to thank Matthew Malcolm for his support on Tuesday in helping Harbourside Market resolve a major connectivity issue we were experiencing with the Motorola PDA’s and the commercial wireless installation. Please pass on my thanks to Matthew as his support was very much appreciated.

Will You Be Prepared for the Next Disaster?

In January Queensland experienced the worst flooding that many of us would have seen in our lifetime. There have been unimaginable losses across the state and in the past weeks since this natural disaster, Rampant has been working extremely hard to get flood affected businesses back in operation. So firstly a big thank you to all the Rampant team members for your extra efforts. In addition, we really appreciate the patience that our customers have exercised when our service levels have dipped at times of high demand. So thank you again for your understanding. 

During this hectic time it became apparent how underprepared some businesses were when disaster struck. It highlighted the importance of being well informed about steps to take which may not seem important at the time. Having a solid disaster continuity plan (also known as a business continuity plan) can make a world of difference to minimizing the amount of downtime for your business. This article will cover some of the basic checks that you can do to safe guard yourself should a catastrophe occur.


Wireless Networking - What You Should Know

Wireless connections can sometimes be temperamental and users can at times experience slow performance and/or drop outs. Similar to mobile phones, the quality, speed and reliability of wireless networks is substandard to a wired connection but provides a high level of convenience. 

Wireless signals can be blocked or interfered with by many environmental objects:

  • Walls, floors, ceilings (especially when made from high density materials such as concrete)
  • Furniture (bookcases, desks, filing cabinets etc)
  • Electronic equipment emitting electrical signals (cordless phones, mobiles, microwaves)
  • Other wireless connections in your area that are on the same radio channel
  • The distance between the base station and the connecting device (range limits vary depending upon the type of wireless technology in use)

Wireless Security - Do I Need It?

Wireless networks communicate by openly broadcasting their signal. This means that anyone who is tuned into the same radio channel can listen in, in a similar manner to a CB radio.

The reality for public broadcast is that, unless adequate security is enabled, the entire network is open for random access. This means that any wireless user could gain access to all available networked resources, such as:

  • Shared folders
  • Networked databases
  • Downloads – unlimited amounts and content using your internet account
  • Banking and other private details stored on the computer

This is why setting up security on your wireless network is essential.
