Before I got started working in networking, I had no idea what a wireless access point was, nor why someone would need one. After working around networking products for about two years now, I see how they can be so beneficial to use. I would like to spread the knowledge of how your business could benefit from using wireless access points. After all, having a solid connection at your business is a main priority (for most). In this article, I will explain what a wireless access point does and also how it can be beneficial to your business.
wireless access point is a device that allows wireless-compatible devices connect to a wired network. To make this simpler to understand, you must understand what the use of a switch is as well. Network switches connect together all devices (printers, computers, servers) in a small business network. You need a network switch in order for wireless access points to work. The internet connection runs into the router, the switch connects to the router, and the wireless access point is connected to the switch. The wireless access point then gives internet connection to the wireless-compatible devices.

Now that you understand the wireless access point and how they work, we can discuss how they benefit your home, or business. First, they give internet connectivity to wireless based products. Second, they do not impact the internet speed, the wireless access point will not make your internet connection slower. Third, they can support many different wireless internet users on a network. Fourth, they have a broader transmission range than regular wireless routers. Wireless access points are perfect for your business. Check out our website for New and Refurbished Meraki Wireless Access Points that would be suitable for you.

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been a disease that’s been threatening our well-being ever since 2020. A year later, in 2021, we still have yet to go back to how our lives used to be. From changes of dining, travel, and events people are stuck wondering: will it ever go back to normal? Many have been pondering this question over the past 2 years. In this article I will provide my findings from research to articulate an inference on whether or not the supply chain will revert to standard we had before COVID-19.

One of the newer, yet main problems we are currently facing is the supply chain. The supply chain has been undergoing issues of inflation ever since the start of COVID-19. Lockdowns halted the flow of raw materials and finished goods, disrupting the manufacturing companies as a result of that. While on lockdown, Americans were in disarray as we had limits on the number of household products (such as toilet paper) we could buy. Unfortunately, this was due to us not being able to receive the products fast enough; this is a problem that comes directly from the supply chain. Shipping costs from China to the United States have climbed over 500% from just a year ago. Shoppers have resorted to digital shopping, creating an influx of demand from companies to fulfill orders creating a supply shortage as well. Not to forget that in March 2021, we had the Suez Canal obstruction. A large container ship blocked the Suez Canal for 6 days, halting all traffic going though there, further delaying the supply chain.

In more recent news, it seems like the supply chain is getting even worse. Cargo Ships are now backlogged at the California coast due to a shortage of energy, labor, and transport. Simply put, there’s not enough workers to meet the constant surge of demand. Container ships are having to deal with a four-week delay before being allowed to dock and unload goods. The world’s largest shipper, A.P. Moller-Maersk warned that bottlenecks “might be longer than expected”. Shippers such as UPS and DHL have also warned that supply chain problems could leave a “permanent scar”. It seems that if there is a future in which things go back to being like what they used to, we cannot begin to predict when that will be. We have a long road to recovery ahead of us.

What does it mean to be a Managed Service Provider? Throughout time businesses developed into complex systems. Most companies must deal with the ever-advancing technology as it continues to bloom. Software is constantly changing, and updating, to the point where it is difficult to manage. When there’s a problem, they are usually met with a solution, which is how Managed Service Providers came into fruition.

Managed Service Providers, or MSPs for short, delivers services such as network, application, infrastructure and security, via ongoing and regular support and active administration on customers’ premises, in their MSPs data center (hosting), or in a third-party data center. This might be a bit confusing to understand, so I’ll explain a bit further. Managed Service Providers help manage the data within a business. They can also help with securing your business with wireless internet connectivity, network connectivity, and security. Ethos Dynamics specializes in IT hardware as such said in the last sentence.
