Configures IT Solutions and Woodgate Valley Urban Farm have been working closely together over the last 12 Months, with various IT services. Woodgate Valley Urban Farm is local to Configures, we believe that working closely to organisations in the local community goes a long way. Woodgate Valley Urban Farm is one of 59 Urban Farms in the UK with the goal of maintaining green space, community spirit and skill building. Founded in 1988 Woodgate Valley Urban Farm focuses on both the animals and the local community with involving people of all ages to take part in projects.

 

On Sunday 10th June 2018 Woodgate Valley Urban Farm hosted an Open Day. Configures participated with Woodgate Valley Urban Farm in making the day successful, Photos were taken showing off all the fun activities, participants and farm animals. There were various stalls and activities for all the family, including a tombola, magic and animals shows.  Woodgate Valley Urban Farm also had bouncy castles and mechanical bull riding, there were plenty to do for all the family. All donations to the Woodgate Valley Urban Farm Charity is used for the upkeep of the Farm, animals and the surrounding local community.

An ongoing project between Configures IT Solutions and Woodgate Valley Urban Farm is a new Website. The new website includes a fully responsive design that fits mobile devices, this is important to Woodgate Valley Urban Farm as their main requirement was to upgrade to a HTML5 website. The website is going to be released soon with further features added once the site has gone live. This shows the continued partnership between Configures and Woodgate Valley Urban Farm

All photos will be shown on the new Woodgate website that is currently being developed, These photographs will be viewable once the website has gone live,

Business Fibre and ADSL

Our Business broadband is delivered to you via ADSL or Fibre, Taking out broadband is a less expensive way to access all of your businesses resources.

Combine broadband with our voice services to see the benefits of a fully converged network.

Leased Lines and MPLS

If your business requires you to connect multiple offices together with dedicated speed and performance then a leased line is recommended for you. VPN’s can achieve this but the problem is that you are not guaranteed the performance, this is why a leased line is the number one solution for this. If you are routing voice calls between sites then you can apply a quality of service policy ensuring that your phone calls face no disruption even if the sites are miles away.

Your business may also require a ADSL or fibre broadband service to fail over if any outage was ever to happen, this can save your business time and money. Allowing you to get on with your day and without worrying about the lack of connectivity as you will still be able to access your services and the internet. An ADSL line can be used to manage your network from a remote location if you need to make a change when your out of the office, or a fail over connection that could also be used to load balance your network to achieve optimum performance.

With the rise of public Wi-Fi some businesses find it hard to split their network up efficiently and affordably because of their lack of network management skills, instead they can purchase a broadband connection to supply the public Wi-Fi. This also has the advantage as the wireless network will not be connected to the internal network therefore increasing your security.

Our Broadband and leased lines are future proof, we are IPv6 ready so you can access both the new network and the legacy IPv4 network.

As the shortage of IPv4 addresses, moving to IPv6 is vital for technology and the economy, increasing devices are pushing the demand in addresses and IPv6 can deliver this.

Configures also offers integrated voice networks, this allows you to route calls over your internet connection. Why have separate network infrastructure for your landline and broadband, cut out the landline and cut out the restrictions that they impose on you. Connect your smartphone or PC to the voice network and you can receive calls when you’re on the go with your local number.

Why not unify your IT needs and take the stress out of IT so you can worry free.

Right know you are probably using a standard landline for your household or even your mobile phone. Well good news is that mobile telecommunications are not going away but unfortunately your telephone line is going to be switched off. You might not worry but for others this is a big deal. BT have confirmed that the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) and Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) telephone networks are going to cease to exist. With not much information about this what can you do to stay connected.

A technology called Voice Over IP (VOIP) has been around for a number of years but with the switching off of the old analogue services this is going to be a buzzword in the coming years. VOIP is the future of telecommunications known as unified communications.

What is Unified Communications?

Unified Communications is when you converge all your services into once place, we currently have a phone network, data network and video/radio networks. With Unified Communications can converge all these into one network and offer a better service, therefore you can see the savings in time, money and complexity.

With the possibility of routing Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) and superfast broadband available, it allows you to have all your services available to you online. You have been using streaming services and OnDemand services already so the world is progressing to being unified. Why not Unify yourself and enjoy the benefits of a fully converged futuristic world.

Fixing the Social problem with the landline?

The landline has become a burden to many, most people are using mobile phones to make calls and the landline is hardly used. You may think the landline as a burden because its stuck in a static place and you cannot move when talking. The advantage to using VOIP is that you can connect this up to your smartphone and talk on the go. This really does allow you to take your Landline on the move, no longer are you confined to standing in the corner and being tangled up by wires. Use your Wi-Fi and make your landline mobile. If you receive a call on your local number then your phone will ring. Allowing you to be away from home to use your home phone, Therefore reducing the amount of missed calls.

Let’s Unify Together

Each device get their own unique line, cutting out the issue with transferring calls between phones and eavesdropping. Unify your communications and see the benefits of a converged service. Get one bill for all of your products and services, One Number Many Devices, choose as many extensions as you require, Email notifications and encrypted communication.

Why should I pay for web hosting for my business?

Small businesses are always aiming to keep their prices down and save wherever they can. If you are considering starting an online presence for your business, whether that is an online store or general information about your business. Saving money is always a plus!

With free domains such as dot.tk and web hosting that doesn’t cost a penny. This seems a plus at the start, however we would not recommend going down this road. Of course you can purchase a well known Top Level Domain (TLD) such as .co.uk .com or .net etc and point them to your free hosting package, however there are several reasons why you should avoid doing this.

Have you ever considered the costs of running servers?

Unfortunately we live in a world where nothing is free. Why would any company be prepared to cover the costs of running servers, electricity and man power to keep the servers running smooth. With technology there are always a chance of an outage, a system error or any other issue. Why would a team of people be sitting around 24 hours a day 365 days a year ready to pounce, when an issue is raised to make sure your website is not affected.

Free hosting companies who are willing to offer you web space for nothing have other ways of making income for the service that they are providing. This can vary from flooding your website with advertisements, they do this for commission on a per click and per view basis. If no advertisements are used on your site then Free Hosting companies often charge you for more than one database, email account and additional features such as a cPanel, Plesk, Softaculous or a range of different tools. Some free hosting providers require you to contribute to their forums on a monthly basis, failing to this will result in your account being deactivated.

With a high number of users using Free Hosting over the world this leads to slower servers and potentially website downtime. Not ideal if your website goes offline during a transaction for one of your customers. Many users sign up to Free Hosting packages as they only require an email verification to activate, no credit card or bank details are exchanged. Once a user has registered, knowing that they have only verified their account by an email they can often maliciously use their account to spam other users, run scripts to overload the server or create unethical content which often makes the IP address blacklisted in Google. A black listed IP address will have an impact on traffic coming into your website. Once a server becomes slow, this also has an impact on your sites ranking in Google.

If a company is offering you Web Hosting that is free what happens if something goes wrong?

Of course computers are mechanical and parts get worn or bugs appear in software that can potentially impact your business. Not all companies regularly update patches or change parts as often as they are required. However a potential exploitation in you’re a system can have vital consequences if it is not fixed rapidly. You may need to contact your hosting team, this may take days, weeks or even longer if its via a web forum. Have you ever looked at the phone numbers some companies use? Premium charges or international numbers can become costly, especially if you are on hold whilst you wait for companies to fix other users issues.
