How to Set up and Manage a Company Wide IT System

Starting a brand new IT system within your company can be a monumental task, with so many factors to consider prior to getting started it can be easy to become overwhelmed particularly if you are trying to do it all yourself. There are steps you can take to make the process less stressful like hiring an external company to do it for you or seeking consultation with IT professionals for advice. However, outside help can be expensive and may not be suitable for smaller businesses who have to take care of the money they spend on extra services, with that in mind below are a number of helpful tips to help with setting up and managing a company-wide IT system.

 

Sourcing Equipment

The first thing to do when it comes to setting up an IT system would have to be sourcing the physical equipment needed for your system, starting with the basics you are going to need multiple computers for your staff to work from. I would recommend doing substantial research into the computer’s specifications and price to ensure you get the best value for money, comparison websites are available and as you would be buying in bulk you should be able to find yourself a pretty good deal for multiple computer systems. Once you have found the perfect computer system the next process would be to look at how you are going to physically set up your IT system, if you are lucky enough to already have some form of office space, this would be perfect as a hub for your IT staff to work from. Having an area where your IT staff can work together would be ideal as it allows them to work together and improves the overall efficiency of your company.

 

Storage

With so many computer setups under one company having a cloud data storage system is a great way to make your company files and resources accessible for all your staff. Cloud storage is available from a variety of services like Google Drive and Dropbox, using online storage services like these reduces the need for physical storage devices like hard drives and is much more convenient for your workforce to access the files they need. As well as being extremely useful for file accessibility, cloud storage also provides peace of mind that your important files are protected as they can be backed up and restored at your convenience. For a company-wide IT system the fact that you can be sure all of your files are safe is a huge advantage for protection from external hackers or leaking of your companies information.

 

Security

Any IT system requires a level of security in order to protect your computers from viruses and other online threats, before setting up your IT system you should definitely invest in some form of virus protection to ensure that your company’s system is not left vulnerable. Services like Mcaffee and Norton have been commended on their effective virus protection for large scale businesses, but I would advise you to shop around to get the best deal and value for money. Another level of online protection you may want to implement within your company would be the blocking of sensitive content on your IT system, many companies choose to block websites that display content that isn’t suitable for the workplace in order to avoid an incident where these pages are accessed on company time. Many companies decide to purchase porn blocking software in order to ensure their staff is protected from the abundance of explicit content that is available online.

 

Management

With your IT system being such an integral part of your company, you may wish to think about who is going to be in charge of your company’s IT department. An IT manager may be more suitable for a large scale company in order to ensure that all of the necessary work is done to a professional standard, another benefit of having an IT manager would be that they allow for direct correspondence between your company and the IT staff. Effective communication is key to any business’s success and being able to directly communicate with someone who knows what is being done within the IT department is a particularly useful tool.

 

 

 

IT Support

In order to ensure that your IT system is an effective tool within your company, you will need to have a solid support system in place. In a situation where something goes wrong with your IT system having a support system that can quickly and effectively fix any technical problems can be the difference between a total technological standstill and an issue that can be easily fixed. There are many IT support businesses out there with reasonably priced contacts available, I would recommend sourcing a support contact as soon as you have set up your IT system, due to the unpredictability of having a tech issue it is better to be safe than sorry.

 

Overall, setting up your IT system doesn’t have to be a stressful process, with proper research and organization your business could have a fully functional IT system in very little time. As long as you have taken the necessary precautions with online security, storage, and tech support, your system should be up and running with little to no serious issues, allowing your business to expand technologically speaking.

The Modern Hunter: 5 Gadgets all Hunters Should Have

Successful hunting relies upon proper preparation, particularly if you are planning on embarking on a long hunting trip it is important that every eventuality has been considered and the necessary tools have been packed. If you find yourself in a situation whilst hunting, packing some of the new hunting gadgets that have appeared on the market can really help avoid unnecessary injury or other hindrances to the trip. Below are five examples of hunting gadgets that every hunter should have packed, in order to ensure your trip is a success.

 

Headlamp

If you are somebody who enjoys hunting at night, a headlamp is a must in order to ensure you can safely navigate through the hunting area and see your target. Injuries are a common occurrence during night hunting, and if you hunt in rougher terrain such as the woods then there is likely going to be many obstacles in your way. In order to effectively, stealthily and safely move through woods some kind of light source is definitely going to be required. Rather than using a conventional torch, a headlamp frees up your hands to carry other items, like your weapon, with the convenience and the fact that a headlight shines in the direction you are looking makes it a must have gadget for any hunter.

 

Satellite Phone

Another gadget that would be great for long distance hunting sessions would be a sat phone, in rural locations phone signals can be scarce and in the event of an emergency the last thing you want to have to deal with is not being able to contact help. A satellite phone is designed to be able to get through to someone regardless of the signal that is present in your location, which I’m sure we can all agree is a very useful gadget to have packed. Sat phones allow you to alert emergency services should you require their help, and even in the most rural locations a rescue party would be able to track the phones individual tracking signal in order to find you.

 

Long Range Scope

If you use a hunting or sniper rifle without a scope you are really hindering your chances of making a successful shot, over long distances the bullet can waver if you do not take into consideration distance when you are shooting. There is an abundance of scopes available on the market so check the best long range scope, before you go ahead with a purchase so you know you are getting something that is suitable for your hunting style. Using a long distance scope with your weapon allows you to make a clearer shot, as most of the newer models come with distance markers to help accommodate for the bullets movement whilst it travels towards your target, you are almost certainly going to see an improvement in your shooting if you decide to purchase a new scope.

 

Solar Wrap

A commonly overlooked issue that is faced by hunters is running out of battery on their many gadgets, new technology is very welcome to the industry but what many hunters are forgetting is that the tech runs on a finite amount of power. A great solution to this issue is the solar wrap, designed to be a portable solar panel that can be plugged into USB compatible devices, the solar wrap takes up a small amount of space and as long as there is sunlight available, is able to charge anything that uses a USB port in a surprisingly quick time.

 

Pocket Chainsaw

Whether you are chopping down firewood or constructing a small shelter, the pocket chainsaw is an extremely useful gadget for hunters and anyone else who works in an outdoor environment. The pocket chainsaw is basically a hand saw, reliant upon physical manpower to move a flexible blade to cut through wood. This gadget is relatively simple in its design but can prove to be very useful in the field.  At an affordable price you can pick one up at many outdoor equipment retailers as part of a set with spare teeth, purchasing this gadget is a no brainer as it can come in handy at the moments you would least expect.

How Far has Underwater Tech come in the Last Twenty Years

While it may not seem like it, more than 70% of our planet’s surface is oceanic. This means that most of Earth’s life and most of Earth’s minerals are located underwater. However, since most of our oceans are unexplored and unmapped, we don’t really how much life is really down there. This is true to such an extent that we know more about the surface of the moon than we do about the surface of our ocean floors. What this does mean is that there is a huge amount of potential in regards to material wealth in the sea, and this has resulted in huge advances in underwater technology as more and more people aim to capitalize on our ocean’s untapped wealth.

 

Mapping the Ocean: Underwater Wireless Communication & Software-Defined Networking

One of the main advances in underwater technology, particularly in the last twenty years, is the development of underwater wireless communication (UWC). This has come as a result of the huge advances in the capabilities of Optical, Acoustic, and RF wireless carriers, which are used for underwater data transmission. In addition, the recent advent of the Internet of Underwater Things (IoUT) has had a huge impact on UWC as it has increased energy efficiency, data rates, and overall connectivity, and all of this will only improve with the introduction of G5 networks. This has all played a huge role in the development of our capabilities in water pollution observation, oil and gas exploration, naval security operations, and natural disaster surveillance. It has also been crucial in our abilities to observe marine life, a fact made clear by the most recent wildlife documentaries here in the States and over in the UK.
From these developments, it’s easy to see the potential for commercial and military applications when it comes to UWC.

Another way we explore the ocean is by using Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networks (UASN). However, it has become apparent in recent years that these networks are not efficiently equipped for the huge tasks they are built for. The reason it has become apparent is that we have developed much more efficient networks in the last twenty years, ones that rely on software rather than hardware. See the issue with UASN’s is that they rely on hardware infrastructure that has poor flexibility and versatility, which often leads to signal interference. Software-Defined Networks (SDN) on the other hand are much more flexible and reliable, and their use has to lead to massive leaps in ocean exploration in the last few years.

 

How have these Advances Affected us?

So, how has all this affected us – the general public? While we’ve mentioned better quality wildlife documentaries, there’s actually a lot of ways in which these advances have directly affected our lives at home. For instance, while SDN’s are being more frequently used now, this is only a recent development. For a very long time, we have been hyper-focused on improving underwater hardware for our communication. In the same way that advances in space exploration resulted in improvements in home appliances, these advances in underwater hardware technology have resulted in a number of improvements in the things we use in our own daily lives. For example, hoods for fish tanks are vastly superior in quality in comparison to 20 years ago. If you head over to https://inlandaquatics.com/best-aquarium-hoods you’ll get some great information on how they have improved. In addition to this, the technology used in home appliances like boilers and cookers has also benefited from our advances in underwater technology, though in a much more complicated way. While we can’t get into that now, just know that improvements in underwater technology will continue to improve our lives whether we know it or not.

Getting Started in the World of Tech: How Intellectual Property Laws can Work for You

Getting into property laws and learning your own rights as a business can be a stressful task, for those of you who are just getting started it is important you realize how you can protect your business and claim any of those brilliant ideas and concepts you come up with. For a tech company, it is even more important than other industries out there, as your business runs on producing innovative and unique developments you must ensure your products and your company are protected in a necessary way. In the majority of countries, there are four different types of intellectual property, I will go through each of them and why they are particularly useful for a tech business.

 

Patents

A patent is used to provide legal protection of a unique invention for a set period of time. A patent prevents other companies from selling and producing the same invention in exchange for a public disclosure detailing features of the invention. This type of intellectual property law is especially useful for the protection of your invention for a set period of time allowing you to release it to a market without competition.

 

As the technology industry is such a competitive place with many retailers taking what is popular and making it their own to boost sales. This underhand nature is extremely prominent in the technology industry, so it can be hard to produce an original idea without the threat of your concept being stolen. Patents provide protection over time so in the crucial stages of your development and before you release the product, you can have peace of mind that no one will be able to release anything like it until your patent has expired. Using intellectual property laws in this way is a great example of how they are a vital part of protecting your inventions.

 

Trademarks

Trademarks are another type of intellectual property law but rather than the protection of your products they protect branding designs such as symbols, words, and logos. There are many different things that make up your business and things like your logo and words or symbols may not seem important but in fact, they are vital. Your logo is used as a means of recognizing your brand if your logo is stolen by another company your customers may begin to question your business integrity.

 

By using Trademarks as a means of protecting your brand’s symbolism you are ensuring you retain a unique and required place on the market. This idea applies significantly to the technology industry as it gives the customer something to recognize you by. If other companies try and steal this from you when you aren’t protected by a trademark you could lose an aspect of individuality and this could seriously affect your business success.

 

Copyrights

Copyright is another form of legal protection you can invest in to protect things like books, movies, songs, or websites. It is unlikely that someone in the technology industry would use this apart from within their website. Copyright law gives you the authority to control how your vision is used and means it can only be copied if you give permission for it to be done. Using copyright as a means of protecting your original work is a smart move in any business, any aspect of your business will do better when it is unique so ensuring it is protected sufficiently allows you to keep your unique sector on the market.

 

For the technology industry using copyright laws would be most appropriate for the protection of any advertising content you have created as well as your web page. It is easy to forget about the extra content your business develops when complex and amazing technology is being created. I must stress to you the importance of marketing content and its protection. How you show off your brand is one of the main forms of communication you will have with your customers, if another brand was to mimic how you advertise it could have a great negative impact on the success rate of your content. Copyright laws allow you to ensure your productions will be used by you and only you.

 

Trade Secrets

Finally, a simpler form of intellectual property law would be trade secrets. Unlike the other forms of protection law out there that require official legal approval using trade secrets is more of an in house process. Trade secrets refer to the information that is behind what you are producing, how you make something can be important information but instead of needing state approval you keep it a secret yourself.  The issue with using this form of legal protection is that if there is a situation where a leak could occur you wouldn’t be covered.

 

Within the technology industry using trade secrets is a good way of protecting things like blueprints or formulas behind your technological ideas. I would recommend only sharing this information with a select group of trusted individuals and keeping track of any recorded information to ensure its safety. Overall, using trade secrets can be a risky business but it is impossible to be able to officially protect everything you own, part of running a business is self-protection and it is down to you to ensure your business is protected to a high legal standard to avoid theft.

 

A Look Inside the iPhone 11’s DeepFusion Camera

The iPhone 11`s DeepFusion camera can be placed among the finest of smartphone cameras, and has revolutionized the Apple product line. The DeepFusion tech relies on the iPhones cutting edge A13 bionic processor, which allows the phone to take a variety of shots, which manages to create an image with less noise. In news that is bound to get the wider tech loving public excited; this passage will aim to break down how the tech will actually work.

To put the DeepFusion camera into layman terms this update is essentially Apples version of neural imaging. The new Apple VP Phil Schiller managed to explain this new update quite well. “It shoots nine images, before you press the shutter button it’s already shot four short images, four secondary images. When you press the shutter button it takes one long exposure, and then in just one second, the Neural Engine analyzes the fused combination of long and short images picking the best among them, selecting all the pixels, and pixel by pixel, going through 24 million pixels to optimize for detail and low noise.” This variety of photos manages to create a crisper quality image. This makes the camera perfect for mid to low lighting situations allowing the user a brighter and clearer image.

The DeepFusion camera is not yet on iPhone 11`s. It is quite surprisingly just a software update, this means that even if you were to buy a refurbished iPhone with an A13 bionic processor installed you would not have access to the camera feature. As it is a purely software-based update. It is extremely interesting that this tech simply relies on a software update. This means that the technology was already available on all iPhones, it was just waiting for the software to catch up. This may indicate that Apple already had plans to add the DeepFusion camera all along, and were simply waiting for the tech to catch up.

Why 360 Degree Cameras Have Changed the World of Dash Cams

What is a Dash Cam?

A dash camera is a camera keeps watch over your vehicle every time you drive, ensuring there is hard evidence for whatever happens on the road and thus providing some pretty obvious benefits. For example, they can provide footage which can be used as evidence against any false claims from other drivers. Footage from a dash cam can also be used to get you out of an undeserved ticket. Dash cams can also record beautiful scenery if you’re on a particularly nice road trip, or be used to watch over your car if you need to walk away.

Why are 360 Degree Dash Cams so Good?

360 degree dash cams are like any other dash cam, only they provide full 360-degree coverage of your car. This means they have a whole host of benefits that regular dash cams can’t provide. They are also usually more modern than regular dash cams, so they tend to have many additional features that increase safety and convenience. So with that in mind, why have 360 degree cameras changed the world of dash cams?

1. Increased Coverage

An obvious benefit of having a 360 degree dash cam is that incidents that occur behind your car or beside it will be picked up by the camera. This means that if somebody bumped your car from behind, for example, they wouldn’t be able to deny it or downplay it as you would have footage. In a way, its like having a separate camera for every single angle of your car, so no matter where an incident occurs, you’ll be covered. In addition to this, when the camera is watching over your car when you aren’t there it will catch any vandals or potential thieves no matter where they come from.

2. Additional Tech Benefits

As previously stated, since 360 degree dash cams are usually more modern than other dash cams, they are more likely to come with other technological benefits beside increased coverage. For example, the Horizon Secure360 can livestream your dash cam footage to your phone. This means that if you can watch over your car for vandals or thieves via your phone during times when you have parked in a potentially dangerous area and have to leave your car. The 4K resolution Vezo360 dash cam on the other hand can use AI to identify if you’re falling and will wake you up to prevent an accident. The Vezo360 also has 4G, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS.

3. Only Minor Drawbacks

Being small and quite affordable, 360 dash cams don’t really have any notable drawbacks considering the benefits they provide. One potential problem is that dash cams can drain car batteries, especially if they have many features like Bluetooth and GPS, so you should ensure you have a decent car battery before purchasing one. Green-4-u actually have an extensive list of car battery reviews, so you should consider looking there before purchasing a new car battery for your dash cam.
