In today’s world, technology is a key aspect to all parts of your business. From accounting and management to day-to-day communication, more and more parts of your business are performed solely on computers. With the importance of computers and technology, it is critical that every organization has a complete solution to deal with the threat of data loss.
In the past, companies have backed up their data using magnetic tapes or removable disks which were then typically stored off-site. While this a usable method for incrementally backing up data and storing it off-site, the process can be tedious, time-consuming, and requires human involvement. For small businesses without a dedicated I.T. staff, maintaining an up-to-date tape/drive library can be easily overlooked and the next thing you know there is data corrupted and no current backup, thus data loss.
Small to medium businesses can suffer severe repercussions if their critical data is not securely backed up at an off-site location. A fire, power surge, hardware failure, or even basic operator error can wipe out data. According to International Data Corporation (IDC, the premier global provider of market intelligence, advisory services, and events for the information technology, telecommunications, and consumer technology markets), less than 40% of all small to medium-sized businesses properly and regularly backup data. Can your business afford to lose time attempting to rebuild lost, vital information? How much does such a loss mean in revenue and cost of recovery?
In order to prevent such a situation from happening, there are on-site/off-site storage systems available, providing secure copies of all data. When creating a business continuity plan, it’s important to take both on-site and off-site backup into consideration. Datto Backup Systems bring you Intelligent Business Continuity.
To quickly recover from hardware failures, viruses, or accidental deletion, it is important to have an on-site backup solution. This solution allows your business to quickly recover from data loss due to common causes.
Off-site backup devices ensure that if physical disaster (fire, flood, theft, etc.) were to strike your business, all lost information can be retrieved from the off-site location. Many off-site backup options use the internet to transfer data back to the business location. It can take weeks or even months to download all of a company’s data from the web. With a Datto backup solution, running your business is only a secure (encrypted) connection away! This allows you to operate your businesses until the system is recovered back to its previous state.
Absolute Networking Systems, Inc. represents Datto, providing a simple, secure, and automatic method for both on-site and off-site data storage in one simple and easy-to-use device. Datto backup solutions ensure your vital information is always safe and secure, making the once painful chore of on and off-site data backup easy and reliable, while eliminating the human factor.

The evolution of our phone capabilities is incredible. From taking a phone message with a pen on sticky note, to reading an email transposed from a live voicemail, technology is changing and improving rapidly. Today, the main proponent of this change has been Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) which has revolutionized the traditional phone system and converted it to a digital system that has a huge impact on the business environment. The bonus of VoIP is that there are several key features that come with it that don't cost extra and users may not be aware of.
Most small businesses don't answer the phone 24 hours. Most leading VoIP providers offer the ability to convert phone messages into emails. Did you know that? A good VoIP solutions will also provide your business with a feature called Find Me/Follow Me. This is a call forwarding feature that allows users to receive calls regardless of their location or phone number and makes employees reachable when they are outside the office.
Do Not Disturb is an important feature for those who work with clients on a regular basis and don't want to be interrupted by a phone call. Many VoIP systems offer advanced DND features like the ability to send calls to voicemail or to transfer to another employee who may be available.
Conference calling is almost a necessity. The best VoIP systems go further than just a conference call, they also enable users to send files, chat messages, collaborate on calendars, share presentations, and even share desktops. Some vendors call this feature Unified Communication.
With this feature, your business can set up a system where a caller can easily contact different departments or even a live operator with the design of a menu type system.
If your company operates in an industry that is regulated, you may find it necessary to record calls. You may also want to record calls to track customer satisfaction and questions. A good VoIP system will allow the user to record calls, often with the click of a mouse and store them in an audio format that can be easily replayed later.
If your company can benefit from the features that VoIP offers, let ANS fill you in on all of its features and how it can broaden your business capabilities.
To the average onlooker, data cabling may look like a mess of cords and wires all jumbled up in a colorful pile. But to the networking professional, structured data cabling is actually the core of a properly functioning multimedia system.
Structured data cabling is the foundation of any business network which is used to transmit data, video, and voice information. This infrastructure provides connectivity to your servers, computers, and other network devices which enables voice, data, and multimedia traffic to be routed through your network and out to the world. Just as you would not construct a building without first installing a solid foundation, you should not try to build a network without first designing and building a solid structured cabling infrastructure.
Because 100% of your company voice and data travels across cable, it is one of the most commonly overlooked but critical part of your network infrastructure. Without the proper cabling, your network can not run at its full potential. Approximately 75% of network faults are cable related, due mostly to incorrect installation procedures. Improper cabling can cause network problems like latency, unnecessary packet retransmission that causes network congestion, data corruption, and crosstalk.
Today’s IP convergence, video streaming, and other multi-media applications are driving the need for high quality cabling solutions, capable of supporting current and future applications. With high expectations and industry demand, your business doesn't have time to deal with networking problems.
Whether it's a single office or a single story building, Absolute Networking Solutions can help you stay competitive and connected in the world of multimedia. Contact our professionals today and find out if your cabling needs an overhaul or if we can offer you a free consultation for your business networking needs.
