Technology | A Tool To Analyze The Dead Packets?


Well, the technology is getting fast day by day and as it gets fast the traffic is also increasing as well. So we all know what a black hole in space is, right? It is such an enormous gravitational pull that even light particles can’t escape it. The same happens in network traffic although the phenomenon is a little different, here the network packets are either lost on their way to the consumer or they get congested on the way. And fairly there is no way one can know where the packet has gone. These things are the work fear of a data center management and any other such enterprise. So to overcome such issue a tool has been developed and has come to an effort which includes a collection of open source software’s and plugins to analyze and inspect a network deeply. With of help of these tools we can further know about the lost packets in a data center.

The software has been developed through open source information and collaboration by different other companies, it is only possible through the mutual effort such kind of software has been developed because there was simply no way to find a dead packet. Such kind of efforts in the industry should be welcomed in the industry so that we can overcome similar problems, because in the age of technology sharing is caring, and only by sharing our own research we can overcome the problems most data centers and enterprises of the similar kind encounter.

Cloud Storage, The Sharing In Air

Cloud Storage


Everyone loves convenience, especially when the convenience is related to the access to our data. We were always able to touch our television sets and change the channel, why was the remote control invented? Right from the beginning of time we have all tried to find out a way in which we can facilitate ourselves. The same goes in the case of storage. And the growing storage demands have also setup in such a way that they need to be met. Cloud storage was introduced for such needs. It has got to another level in the past developments as more and more people have stepped upto it and used it to their benefit.

Cloud storage has many advantages most of which is that it’s not present at all. It doesn’t have a physical body. So there’s no need to actually take care of a machine. Once you put your files on it then it all depends on the provider to manage them. The next benefit in line falls when you come to know the amount of storage it provides. There’s no need to setup more and more external hard drives since the utility is already there. The cloud storage gives enough space that a user, if he doesn’t put in unnecessary load, can use it for years. Also there is not a single thing to worry about when it comes to the backup of these files being stored. That backup is being created by these clouds as well. The biggest benefit of this is being accessible from almost everywhere, everywhere the internet goes, cloud goes.

Choosing the best ISP

Nowadays everything is running so fast that there is a need to keep them in line. It’s life, economy or a business, all of them have a common factor that helps them running in today’s world and that factor is commonly known as the Internet. Many businesses around the world are running because the internet works as a backbone for them. Setting up a new business takes a lot of hard work and tough decisions need to be taken. Everyone likes their business to start with a boom and the only thing that can give that initial boom is the ISP that is an acronym of Internet Service Provider.

Many people who begin their business consider the ISP to be something very small or something that doesn’t play a big role into a stepping stone. But if we get a chance to make people realize its true importance, there’s no harm in saying that if the ISP falls apart. The entire business can hit a rigid wall, maybe not being able to start again. That’s why there is a need to be very cautious while choosing the ISP. First of all, there is a need to understand or have an idea what the business is going to be and what traffic we are going to expect to come towards it. If the business involves the movement of large files and many other related data also the video conferencing then there is a need for higher bandwidth. But if it is somewhat related to only email service or other services that don’t take much of the bytes then a slower internet connection can do. Once the need is analyzed then a few ISP are supposed to be kept on the list and then there is a need to learn about what bandwidth they are providing and how they are going to work for us as far as the budget is concerned. Later if a normal line would do or a fibre optic is needed to keep the service quick and seamless. As a whole ISP is the foundation of a good business and there’s a need to be very careful while choosing it.

Network Cables that won’t squeeze


Ethernet network cables

How many of us actually remember tangling a chord and making it get un-functional, thus ending up having the entire appliance or a machine dead? The truth is we all do. Ethernet network cables are often flexible but at times very delicate at the point of their connections to the boards or the plugs. Most of the time the reason for the cable malfunctioning is the way it is plugged if an external pressure in a right angle is applied it breaks all the links within the cable thus making it totally worthless for operation. And having flexibility in the cables when it comes to networking and Ethernet cables is of paramount importance since a lot of them need to be plugged at one point and reach the other, the risk of them getting tangled or even broken is far more than the normal cables.

New Ethernet network cables are now in the town known as the stackable right angle Ethernet cables. Since they are new the next question that arises in our minds is what makes them better than the normal Ethernet cables? These cables are designed to provide Category 5e and 6e performance and are carved in such a way that they enhance the panel’s density. These cables have a right angle bend at their junctions of plugs. That gives them more strength, durability and the right amount of flexibility. And that’s not it these cables are also very affordable and on a market price. These cables fit tightly and are aiming to capture the entire Ethernet networking industry in a boom.

5G, the rise of a new era, or just a hoax


None of us actually forget the days when 3G was introduced, it truly served as a revolution for all the telecommunication companies and later when 4G came it was another step towards more and more speed and less interrupted service. There’s a reason why it’s said that everyone likes more and more. Getting to hear about 5G is going to be groundbreaking enough. Since the announcement of this technology there’s a new question rising in everyone’s mind, would 5G be what it’s expected to be? Or it would be just another hype of the century?

It is said to be this year’s cold fusion. And that won’t be wastage of words to call it such. Most of the telecommunication companies call it the wireless fiber. It is said that it will be a ton times stronger and faster than the current technology we have, which is known as 4G LTE. So powerful that it will be able to project holograms in real time. Whenever there’s a new technology about to be introduced in the market specially if it’s about better speed, stability and strength a strange kind of rise in expectation of people can be seen. This rise doesn’t increase gradually but boosts like a sonic boom. This sonic boom can be crushed if you’re just told that 5G is not 5G in reality. It is just a term that is tossed in the market; the exact 5G standard technology doesn’t exist, yet. And the worst part is that it can’t be possible until we put more and more fiber optics in the ground. This revolution can’t just take place over a night. But we can’t say that… it might be possible.

4th Generation in evolution



The Internet is something we always like to be fast, very fast. They say if you want to see the reality of someone’s personality make them sit in front of a device with slow internet. And it’s correct we all hate the slow internet. Newer technologies and techniques are being introduced just for this purpose, making the internet fast. Sometimes these techniques are even replaced by hacks. The current fastest internet known to humankind as we speak is, 4G LTE, not 4G. It’s 4G LTE. 4G must be easy to use just for the marketing purpose but the names later part known as LTE has a different story.

LTE stands for long-term evolution. We already know what 3G is and if we start counting 4 comes after 3, so 4 can be termed as a better version, correct? Yes. 4G is better as compared to 3G in terms of delivering speed. And it is by all means world’s first mobile phone standard. This technology is there since 2009 and many other countries are actually falling in line to make it more and more in useful and in access of the users. Not all the companies are providing the 4G and neither all the devices have the ability to handle this technology so before buying anything or setting anything up there is a need to learn more about compatibility from both ends. 4G is 5 times faster than the 3G as we know it. Which means you can download faster, surf faster and no doubt stream faster as well. And all of it is not limited just to the downloads, now the uploads are faster on the move and are possible with the 4G LTE.

The SMART Cables In The Oceans For Better Connectivity

The SMART cables in the oceans

We already know the number of cables that are actually placed at the oceanic surface and are connecting today, thousands of people, nations and their economies. These cables provide the internet and bring together all the continents at one place. But these cables are not just serving as a purpose of connectivity; they are now going to help us in understanding this floor of our oceans and things below it as well. And just to achieve this target three of the big sectors by the United Nations namely World Meteorological Organization, the International Telecommunication Union and Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization have joined in their hands to incorporate sensors into these cables travelling under water.

These cables are going to consist of different optical repeaters that will be placed at regular intervals from each other that are said to be 50-100 kilometres apart. The reason to place them this close is to have the proper signal strength and not to lose it in between. These signals are going to provide us more details about the underwater conditions, the level of water and the climate of the depths we can’t regularly reach. It will also provide details about the earthquakes and tsunami hazards. This network is called Science Monitoring and Reliable Telecommunications or in other words SMART. Many other big names have put in a good word to put SMART network in action. These systems already are present but they are by all means the future of connectivity and surveillance of our planet.
