Wondered how to get some surveillance happening without an internet connection?
We have the answer… An example of this might be a construction site which is a mobile container and moves site to site. Security on these premises is paramount not only for theft, but health, safety and tracking. With the ability to have internet on 3G/4G, wired infrastructure is a thing of the past.
Having security cameras in your business is one thing, but storing and retrieving the data, is another. So many clients find that when it comes time to actually reviewing the video and/or audio footage, it is either too hard to find or isn’t there.
Let us work with you in giving you a demo on how this technology works. Going to a retail store and buying a kit may not be enough in a court of law.
Contact Us for a NO OBLIGATION meeting to discuss your security needs.
Looking for a faster internet connection without breaking the bank?
We have a number of different technologies that can offer high speed internet. Not all areas and locations can get any or all of the services listed.
If an address and phone number is provided to Sterling IT, and an understanding on usage including speed requirements and download limits, we can provide a solution to suit.
Please note: If you are a Pacnet customer (ADSL only), we can transition you to another provider and save you over $130 per month, in most cases. Contact Us Immediately
The technologies Sterling IT work with and recommend to our clients include :
1. NBN – This is a residential grade service however some businesses are taking this on due to cost and current speeds. An example of this is for $79 per month you can get speeds up to 70Mbps with a 250GB download limit. However as more clients come online, the services will reduce in speed as they are shared.
2. FIXED WIRELESS – This is NOT 3G/4G but a proprietary wireless solution offering 1:1. Unlike ADSL/NBN, it is not a shared service. While one of the most expensive connections, it is not reliant on any Telstra infrastructure and is a full business grade service. Sterling IT use this technology to manage 1000+ computers. Unlike cabled services, it is not reliant on distance to exchange and does not slow down if you are
far or close.
Other advantage is we can install within 1 week in most cases (please contact us to confirm at time required)
Cost of this start from $199 per month however has a high setup fee from $300-$950.
3. METRO ETHERNET – This service is by far the best and most cost effective service. The problem with this service is it is very limited to where it has been rolled out and available.
We currently have some awesome specials till the end of December 2013. Services do take 25 days to install so an install wouldnt complete to the following month of order in most cases.
Here is this months only special (expires end of Dec 2013)
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FIRST BOX SHOWS NORMAL PRICES WHERE SECOND BOX IS SPECIAL.
THIS IS ALSO UNLIMITED DATA
For any service listed above, please contact us for an obligation free quote and service check
Alert Services (Advisory)
7 June 2013
Australians continue to use out dated encryption
Businesses and home users are advised to avoid using the Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) security protocol for wireless connections.
Once commonly used, the WEP security protocol is today considered broken and should not be used.
Although most router/modem manufacturers and Internet Service Providers currently supply and support devices with higher levels of encryption, many computers and networks continue to maintain wireless connections via WEP.
If you still currently use WEP, your wireless connection is vulnerable, information you send via this method is easily accessible via sniffer tools downloaded from the Internet.
You should check your current settings and if you currently use WEP, choose an alternative security protocol for your wireless connections.
How to find your wireless security settings:
For Windows based computers, you can check the level of security being used on a wireless network by viewing Network Options in the Control Panel. From here, select your wireless network and open the Properties for that connection. The exact name and location of these options will vary between versions of Windows. A security tab or menu should offer a choice of security protocols for your device.
For Apple based computers, you can check the level of security being used on a wireless network by clicking the Network icon in the System Preferences. Select your connection on the left hand side and the security level will be listed next to the network name.
How to update your wireless security:
Updating wireless security varies depending on the make and model of your wireless device. Refer to your manual for individual product details.
Modern modems, routers and wireless devices typically offer a range of encryption protocols. Wireless encryption should be set to WPA2 if available (or WPA if not).
There can be various types of WPA2 encryption, with the simplest version being WPA2-PSK. This uses a network name and requires a password. Most computers and smartphones can connect to WPA2 networks with minimal reconfiguration.
If your wireless device does not support any encryption other than WEP, it is strongly advised to update your equipment.
