We get it. You were given a budget at the beginning of the year and you cannot spend a penny over it. How in the world are you going to be able to keep your network up and running with that small budget? Have you considered the value in refurbished equipment?

Access Points bring many advantages to working wireless with high-speed internet. We’ve surveyed our coworkers here at CK and came up with the Top 5 places you definitely wouldn’t work, but you could with the help of an Access Point.

1. Bathroom

A room containing a toilet and sink which is usually a location to relieve yourself. We typically wouldn’t go to a bathroom to work, but you most certainly could. Just think, you could kick back, relax and enjoy a day of work in the comfort of your own bathroom stall.

Here at CK, the holidays are a special time where everyone gets warm and fuzzy feelings and excitement for the huge feasts that are quickly approaching (go ahead and pull those stretchy pants out of your closet). From October until December, there is non-stop excitement around the office. In October, we put on an epic Halloween Costume contest along with a yummy Chili cook-off. These two events have been known to bring the warrior out of people (we are a competitive bunch). November is all about being thankful and figuring out how many clever ways we can repurpose the leftover turkey. In December, we hold an ugly sweater contest, gingerbread house competition and end our festivities with a festive Christmas party which brings all of our families together.

Since we are all anxious to see what Santa brings us, here are the top requested items from the CK family:

With Thanksgiving approaching, we thought this would be a great time to take a step back and recognize what we are thankful for. The CablesAndKits team has accomplished a lot this year, from new hires to welcoming new family additions.

Day of the Dead, 28 Days Later, and Dawn of the Dead. What do all of these movies have in common? Zombies, of course! With all of these zombies running around, we have all realized the importance of having a firewall to protect ourselves. (See what I did there with those firewalls? Ha!)  Firewalls have always been
the protector of your network, and we definitely should take advantage of their abilities to stop those ugly monsters from getting in.  Here are the top 5.5 ways a firewall will help protect you and your network from zombies:

Day 1

It’s such a great day! My first day at work and I’m excited to be the new network admin. They said the last network admin they had left abruptly. (Not sure what that was about). This is my first entry, and I’m stoked to get to work!

 

Day 20

I just love the hum of our server room. Some of our equipment is acting a little funny. I’m going to look into replacing a few of the switches we have here; they seem pretty new, but I have a feeling they might cause me trouble in the future.

 

Day 31

Navigate Recovery is Gwinnett’s only recovery community organization dedicated to changing the way addiction is treated in Gwinnett County, Georgia. This organization acts as a clearinghouse for services and opens the lines of communication to provide better outcomes for addiction sufferers and their families.

At CablesAndKits, one of our core values is to Serve Others and what better way to do that than to support an organization like Navigate Recovery Gwinnett.  This past weekend, CablesAndKits supported Navigate Recovery Gwinnett in taking part in their 5K Run/Walk. This event was created to support and celebrate those who are on the road to rehabilitation and to show others recovery is possible!
