Cabling NBN Sunshine Coast
The new NBN cabling will transform the Sunshine Coast computer networks in terms of broadband internet services. As important as having the new cable for the computer networks, there is the responsibility of maintaining them to stay updated and effective as digital technology advances.
Here are a few tips that can help those who are running computer networks or just maintaining your own computer, or need to update the structured cabling for a new system.
Maintenance for the Computer.
This means securing multiple power sources, cleaning vents, replacing filters on your computer. Organising the cables so they can be quickly identified for testing the Network if needed. In addition, cables should be kept out of the way, so they do not become a tripping hazard.
Getting your power from at least two different sources helps ensure that if an outage occurs, it will be a brief one. In view of this, getting a temporary backup if practical to keep the network running until the power switches over.
Finally, a little dusting can go a long way to keeping filters clean. Keep a few dry cloths handy to remove the dust from air vents. Purchase replacement filters and have them at the ready to replace them as needed.
Virus Protection on the Computer Network System.
With news of major computer network systems on the Sunshine Coast going down due to virus, malware, and hacking, security protections are a must. By updating software protection so that it provides a shield against the latest forms of attack. If you can afford it, running a test network that is separate from the main network means you can test out the latest updates before implementing them across the board.
Backup Your Data
Even the best, most well-maintained computer network scan still go down. Power outages, lines being cut, and software becoming corrupted can bring down even the best of computer networks. Be sure that your data is being backed up regularly, so that if the worst should occur you will still have the information available. A local backup for networks can be stored away from the main site so that they are protected from fire or other disasters.
Document All Work
All work and maintenance on the computer network should be recorded. It provides you with who made repairs, replacements, or updates. While it can be easy to forget documenting when an emergency strikes, it is important to know all the work that has been performed, so you can see what is needed for the future of the network.
Be sure to maintain an inventory of all devices used on the network. This includes all MAC and IP addresses. This will let you know at an instant what you have, what may be going out of date, and what can be updated so you can maintain a suitable network.
The new National Broadband Network cabling will be a revolution in internet service the Sunshine Coast. This means that computer networks will be faster and more reliable, but they will still not be free of fault or possible security breaches.
