.Net Charts and Graphs Interact with Businesses and Customers

Written by Joe Miller

Bar charts, bar graphs, and any other chart or graph used in financial statements, inventory reports, sales reports, a slew of other types of reports have typically been paper reports or online reports depicting various levels of complex information for tracking, investing, planning, and buying. However, untilrepparttar .net graph, .net chart, .net map, and other .net charts came along,repparttar 143016 relationship between management andrepparttar 143017 company, companies and their investors, and companies and their customers was missing.

Interactivity is just one attribute of .net technology, a technology which is spreading acrossrepparttar 143018 nation as companies recognize it a bridge overrepparttar 143019 gap between them and investors, customers, clients, and their own departments. Using a web-based .net map or chart opens up communication and collaboration between various business demographics. For example, management may want to track a product inventory through a given time period. A .net map can show warehouse locations and inventory levels in real-time. Warehouse managers will be able to track incoming and outgoing inventory, listing information on real-time .net charts and .net graphs.

In addition to internal informational tracking, companies can post interactive data for customers, clients, and investors. Perhaps you have already seen how this works with interactive .net maps of states or countries. Asrepparttar 143020 mouse moves overrepparttar 143021 counties inrepparttar 143022 state or states inrepparttar 143023 country, information about climate, population, government, agriculture, etc. may pop up. You can even drill down to more specific locations and information by clicking onrepparttar 143024 state or county you want to see.

This type of interaction is ideal for students doing research, parents making vacation plans, even businessmen or women making flight reservations. Many airlines, for example, use .net maps to help customers choose their own seats.

Security, Stability, and Interoperability Issues on VoIP Implementation

Written by Al Falaq Arsendatama

Now we have accepted that VoIP is no longer just a phone service, it has become feature rich as it merges with computer configurations. The VoIP's existence has changed considerably overrepparttar last few years, coupled withrepparttar 143015 availability of broadband connection torepparttar 143016 Internet, plus leaps in multimedia technology in which virtual operations with remote sites becomes more enhanced, makes VoIP service a viable alternative to traditional communication offerings.

Cost savings is notrepparttar 143017 only driving force for VoIP implementations, enterprises have to consider some business aspects that VoIP can bring about. VoIP creates potentials for applications that could not have been done before. Collaboration, integration, and interactivity between employees and applications are one ofrepparttar 143018 several business benefits that enterprises can derive from VoIP adoption. Nevertheless, amid euphoria of VoIP technology, there are three important aspects to look at before a company goes VoIP. Inrepparttar 143019 following paragraphs I will summarizerepparttar 143020 aspect of security, stability, and interoperability that play a key role inrepparttar 143021 successful implementation of VoIP.

1. Security

VoIP implementations may expose new security risks and challenges that somehow become greater concern than quality and cost-efficiency among vendors and users. VoIP networks are vulnerable to allrepparttar 143022 same security risks as traditional IP data networks, including:

  • Denial of Service (DoS), viruses, worms,
  • Toll fraud and unauthorized access,
  • Spoofing, and port scanning.

It is recommended that organizations should adopt a layered, defense-in-depth security strategy to addressrepparttar 143023 issue withrepparttar 143024 increasing proliferation of new Internet-borne attacks and malicious activities in recent years. In this architecture,repparttar 143025 network is segmented into secure zones protected by layers of firewall, intrusion prevention, and other security services. This strategy allowsrepparttar 143026 organizations to logically split and secure voice and data networks in front of individual voice and data components and between interactive points inrepparttar 143027 network.

2. Stability

One ofrepparttar 143028 main issues of VoIP isrepparttar 143029 amount of bandwidth required for each call. There must be adequate bandwidth reserved andrepparttar 143030 quality ofrepparttar 143031 link must be well maintained throughout each call to ensurerepparttar 143032 users are not affected. Asrepparttar 143033 very nature of VoIP call is real-time, any disruption duringrepparttar 143034 call would be easily noticeable and unacceptable. The two issues that enterprises usually have to deal with here are bandwidth and quality of service (QoS).

VoIP calls need a data transmission speed of 64kb/s to producerepparttar 143035 quality of voice comparable to that of a normal telephone call. That 64kb/s channel needs to remain open and unaffected forrepparttar 143036 duration ofrepparttar 143037 call. Theoretically, VoIP installations would not allow such a huge bandwidth to be allocated for VoIP alone. Therefore, there needs to be a compression taking place to compactrepparttar 143038 voice data into a considerable size before it gets transmitted over a packet switching network. G.723 codec that is incorporated in VoIP standard protocol H.232 can take a 64kb/s stream of data and squash it down to a mere 5.5kb/s or so. Generally, for VoIP to work reliably over WAN links, there has to be low jitter, low packet loss, a considerably high-speed connection betweenrepparttar 143039 endpoints, and less than 200ms delay.
