Handling a Remote Network Upgrade

What do you do when it’s time to upgrade your company’s remote infrastructure? In many ways an upgrade that has remote network components to it is similar to a standard hardware upgrade, but there are a few extra considerations that you should keep in mind. When it comes time to do a large-scale overhaul of your existing remote network and move on to a new paradigm, use these tips as a guideline as to some of the things you should look at.

Wait for a Significant Leap

When preparing for an upgrade, the first thing you need to do is decide whether the upgrade is worth the investment cost. Mobile technology is constantly moving forward, and very few companies can realistically keep pace with the rapid advances made in remote networking. What you need to do before you make any sort of upgrade is to analyze the product you are going to move to. Read the company press releases and check out demos if possible. Usually, a company will highlight the key features that are changing, and you can make sure that those features match what you want. Unless your current technology just isn’t getting the job done, you can be careful when it comes to upgrading.


Building a Workforce around a Remote Model

How do you recruit people for your business? If you are like most companies, you usually restrict yourself to a local pool of candidates, with the occasional possibility of somebody else coming in fr om out of town as long as they can relocate. However, those days are rapidly fading. One of the beautiful things about remote networking is that you don’t have to worry about location as much. It’s perfectly possible to use a remote model to change the way you recruit your workers.

Key Questions to Ask

The biggest benefit that a remote model has when it comes to recruiting is that you don’t have to worry wh ere a potential employee is. If somebody is the most qualified candidate for the position, you can make the job work even if they can’t come in to the office in person. However, before you start considering candidates you need to look at the job itself. How much face to face interaction does the position need? You also need to look at what infrastructure is available to you. Do you have the proper tools to make sure the candidate can participate in teleconferences, meetings, and other important events without having to jump through hoops to do so?


5 Common Network Mistakes Almost Everybody Makes

Have you ever continually clicked on a button that isn’t working in hopes that the problem would fix itself? Have you ever used a suspicious link when you knew you shouldn’t? Whether you have or not, these are common networking mistakes most people make at one point or another. Here’s a short list of some of the biggest time wasters and security risks that crop up on a business network and how you can make sure you avoid them.

1: Overreliance on Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is extremely helpful and can be a great way for businesses to store a lot of data without having to deal with physical servers on site. However, you need to realize that when you put your information in the hands of somebody else, you’re exposing it to a higher chance of human error. An accidental deletion on the part of your managed services provider, an employee who doesn’t follow the proper security protocols, or a simple account management error can result in a lot of lost data. While you should use cloud computing if it is right for your company, make sure your data is accessible somewhere else as well so you don’t fall prey to the higher chance of human error.

Tips and Tricks for Running a Remote Desktop

How experienced are you when it comes to your remote desktop? Many people are finding the technology easier to navigate than it used to be, and it is certainly becoming the industry standard for many companies. However, there are always new, useful tips and tricks out there to learn. Some shortcuts and suggestions that might be able to help you in your remote work are presented below.

Save your Connection Details

Before you log into your remote desktop, take a look at the options menu that most people tend to pass over on their way to clicking on the “connect” button. The options button brings up a whole new connection window that has many different expanded options. Among these options is the ability to save your credentials locally. You will need to enter all the login information that you normally use to sign in remotely, but once you have done that and chosen to save those credentials, you’ll be able to sign right in by just clicking the remote desktop icon. This saves time logging on and is especially useful if you usually have one specific machine that you access your remote connection from.
