Remember the time when our TV’s only showed in black and white and the sense of color was only a figment of our imagination? Yeah me neither, I’m too young but I bet it would be weird. In other news, CablesAndKits recently added two brand new lines to our IP phone family and we are super stoked about them. Not like hearing about an 18th Star Wars Rogue One Trailer stoked, but seriously we are geeked out! We are talking full color with Bluetooth, WI-FI capabilities, and USB ports.

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.

IMG_9705cc-1000

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:

Nowadays, we are always looking for the greatest and fastest technology.  Regardless of the ever-changing landscape of that industry- we will always need Ethernet.  Ethernet is one of the most important forms of networking cable used on wired networks.  Here are the top nine reasons you will need Ethernet for your company or home network.

  1. Achieve high speeds on stabilized internet

With wired Ethernet, you will see a much more stable connection and increase in speed. Ethernet eliminates the possibility of Wi-Fi interferences or drops and gives you a piece of mind.  We all know what it is like to drop a connection and run around frantically until the bar goes up on the Wi-Fi signal.

  1. Ethernet Friendship Bracelets

You can make friendship bracelets for all of your co-workers with the many different Ethernet colors. Relive your childhood and show those “special someone’s” at your office how much they mean to you by giving them their very own Ethernet friendship bracelet. It is the gift that will last forever. (Remember that Lifetime Warranty?)

  1. Direct file sharing

Transferring files over WiFi may not be the most efficient way to move large files. Instead, consider direct file sharing with Ethernet to increase stability and speed. If at least one of the computer’s network card supports auto-crossover, you can connect both with a direct cable.
