Solveforce Brings the Future of Computer Networks to Atlanta with Global MPLS Network Providers

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 09, 2014

Technological innovations influence many aspects of human life. Among the greatest technological innovations of today are computers. They have taken over the way people live and have been integrated into the daily activities people carry out in their everyday lives.

In computer networks, computers send data to each other over a communication medium between them. MLS has a mechanism that acts with other kinds of network protocols at the same layer. It has to map IP addresses to their corresponding labels. The transmission medium is divided into several label switched paths for the transmission.

Network communication faces different challenges and the Atlanta Global MLS network provider ( deals with most of them. The main challenges include network engineering, speeds and policies. The limitations of bandwidth may also pose serious problems to a network. The new technology is able to deal with these issues.

Most users of a network face the problem of downtime caused by failures of different components of a network. The MLS has its own mechanisms of dealing with such problems. Its self-healing properties reduce the worries of network administrators. It also reduces the error rates of transmitted information.

Most owners of businesses with computer networks are concerned about the scalability of their networks. They want a situation where they can add computers and other devices to the network without having to make significant changes. Atlanta Global MLS network provider ( is scalable, which is partly a reason for its popularity.

It works by creating virtual links between two computers sending data to each other. This increases the effective bandwidth because communication takes place on a proprietary network. This also makes the technology the ideal choice for creation of VPNs, which have become very popular on the market today.

In the standard network model, the data link layer implements several protocols that govern how computers access the shared medium. It has the option of several protocols but each network uses only one. Atlanta Global MPLS network provider ( helps engineers develop networks capable of implementing more than one protocol at this layer.

There are no restrictions imposed on the kinds of transmissions implemented at the network layers. The network engineers are now more concerned with building better networks capable of handling the needs of an organization. The business is therefore able to enjoy better performance and efficiency levels.

When disasters strike, they may paralyze the operations of business because of loss of data. To avoid this, most proprietors back up their data on remote servers. The onset of cloud computing makes the backup process faster and easier. Computers need high speed access to the cloud servers to store and access the required information.

Multiprotocol layer switching is fast replacing the traditional kind of network communication through frame relay and asynchronous transfer mode. Most business investors are investing in this technology and the others are becoming outdated. Enhancing business efficiency is the goal for most investors and MLS is the best option for achieving this goal.

Cloud and data second-quarter 2013: analysis and outlook (subscription required)

Analysts David Linthicum and Jo Maitand examine major news from the past three months in the cloud, infrastructure and big data sector. While the NSA leaks and the PRISM scandal dominated the quarters headlines and stirred up questions about cloud privacy and data privacy across international borders the quarter also included major acquisitions, such as the IBM-SoftLayer deal. Linthicum and Maitland highlight big executive changes, emerging trends and funding/IPO news for the cloud and data market, and they present a near-term outlook.

(See all the second quarter wrap-up reports here.)

The Xbox Ones role in the TV ecosystem (subscription required)

While the device met with mixed reviews, analyst Paul Sweeting argues that the Xbox One represents part of a greater strategy for Microsoft. Rather than releasing just another console, he believes the Xbox One is poised to capitalize on an inflection point in the video game industry, which has seen the rise of mobile and cloud-based gaming markets. Sweeting contends that Microsoft hopes to dominate the living room by providing a multipurpose entertainment device that serves up a range of non-gaming content, such as TV and video content and other media.

Proactive compliance: using big data analytics to manage human risks (subscription required)

Financial institutions are using increasingly affordable technologies like cloud computing and parallel processing to monitor and detect potentially suspicious activity. But analyst Steve Hunt contends that many of the systems in place are still insufficient for detecting more subtle cases of fraud and money laundering. Instead, he suggests that financial institutions take a proactive approach, using big data and predictive analytics tools to detect patterns in unstructured and semistructured data capitalizing on techniques commonly used by government intelligence agencies. Hunt analyzes the compliance challenges, current practices and common threats that are affecting the financial sector today and provides a list of recommendations for CIOs and CSOs.

The Protective Group Analyzes the Future of Corporate Security and the New Methods of Combating Threats

(PRWEB) June 27, 2013

On June 27, leading corporate security company, The Protective Group, comments on an article published by Malcovery, which details the upcoming changes for corporate security and what effect these changes will have on security companies.

According to the article published on Malcovery, corporate security is heading down a road filled with many changes to the role of security for businesses. One of the most prominent changes to the role of corporate security will be an increase in the complexity of security.

Due to increased technological advances, the article says, 76 percent of firms (are) expected to adopt a decentralized structure within the next two to three years, the article says.

While decentralization helps employees and organizations, the increased use of social media, cloud computing, and mobile technology also opens up increased threats to security. The article says finding a balance between security and the flexibility of a system will be a major goal in the coming years.

Due to these new threats many companies are beginning to place a larger emphasis on corporate security. The article says a recent study found that 60 percent of IT decision makers have identified improving IT security as a primary objective.

John Monderine, CEO of The Protective Group, says, IT security is vital to a company. Protecting a business from malicious threats should always be a top priority. While increased social media usage and other forms of technology will create more threats, the increase in security technologies will be right there to combat these new threats.

Monderine also says the influx of technology also means that people can find new ways to get around security precautions. Its always important to make sure you have the newest pieces of technology for corporate surveillance, he says. Criminals could use new gadgets to compromise cameras, so its imperative that companies update their systems with the best video cameras and security software.

The Protective Group is an elite full service private security firm with specializations in special event security, corporate security, private investigation, insurance investigation and surveillance. Our top-notch professional security guards have over 150 years of combined law enforcement service. Our security personnel are physically fit, well manicured, and completely dedicated to ensuring your event proceeds without a hitch. From charity runs and fashion shows, to fundraisers and art shows, the Protective Group instills confidence and assures safety at your exclusive event or place of business.
