Leading The Future Of Network Security

Posted by Guest Blogger on Mar 15, 2022 12:09:22 PM

Network security, whether in a home or business setting, is absolutely vital. We all know that without some form of security solution our network is at risk of a cyber security breach,  which could compromise personal and business data such as financial data, confidential documents, or private client contact information.

What is SASE, and Why Do You Need It?

Posted by Guest Blogger on Mar 4, 2022 2:31:09 PM

We’re in the middle of a technological revolution, with more powerful computers processing data faster and better than ever, and machine learning and artificial intelligence making it easier to automate processes and streamline workloads. Cloud computing technologies have made it possible for people to access files both when working from the office and from home. As workforces have shifted to hybrid working, networks have become more complex, and businesses now need to worry about keeping their whole cloud network secure - and SASE is the answer.

World Cup technology and what the tournament might mean for your network

Posted by Dan Pope on Jun 13, 2014 3:58:23 PM

The introduction of a goal-line decision system has hogged all the headlines about technology in this year’s tournament, but it’s just one of many technologies making their world cup debut. Of course it’s a rather belated entrance for goal line technology, which has been used in various forms across other sports for many years, so we’re not really hailing a new innovation here, more celebrating the fact that Fifa have finally embraced it. That’s not to say the Goalcontrol4D system isn’t impressive; equipped with 14 high speed cameras it monitors both goal mouths and the position of the ball in three dimensions. Once it’s detected that the ball has crossed the line it sends an encrypted radio signal to a referees watch in less than a second- so there’s no stop/starting with the match.

Sochi, the Data Games

Posted by Dan Pope on Feb 21, 2014 2:36:42 PM

This year’s Winter Olympics are harnessing Omega technology used in Formula One to transmit data directly from bobsleighs racing to the finish line, including information on speed, G-force and vertical track positioning. This utilisation of technology has made the 2014 Sochi Games the most technologically advanced Games in history. According to Peter Hurzeler of Omega these units were initially developed three years ago and the battle ever since has been to ensure that the technology is as lightweight as possible to ensure it would be cleared for use at the Olympics. Technology has not been limited to use only at the bobsleigh contest, however, with both speed skating and cross-country skiing contests also benefitting and the majority of results becoming automated.

Release of Apple iOS 7 Software Leads to Internet Surge across the Fluidata Network

A trend we’ve watched with some interest here at Fluidata over the last few years is the surges in traffic across our network during popular sporting events. The Olympics last year providing perhaps the best example.

Networks need to get faster to support BIM

Posted by Dan Pope on May 18, 2012 11:30:57 AM

Building and environment design is going through a period of change and at the heart of this change is Building Information Modelling (BIM). It is a system that is revolutionising the way in which projects are followed through, from initial plans through to implementation and life cycle of the structure. Wembley Stadium and the Swansea Bridge are just some landmark structures designed using these systems.
