Screen Shot 2013-08-31 at 6.07.24 PM

 

Well home monitoring is an important thing specially if you have kids you want to watch remotely . or maybe u are traveling and want to verify things .

in addition having a store or a shop u want to keep an eye on .

 

the easiest solution is D-Link my cloud camera solution . why ? much cheaper than Hawally DVR solution were they sell the DVR with 200KD and each camera around 10 or 20 KD . also internet setup is complicated and no much software update

 

D-Links rocks !!! just install the camera ( the night vision one cost 25KD in Hawally ) register an account on dlink cloud , and u are done … you can watch with ur iphone ,ipad or web browser

Application Portal – Self Service –

I guess the name explain it all , employee in a company always complain that Helpdesk not answering the calls , slow response ..also some installation they need to send a tech support to employee office .

 

guess what with app portal software , employee will do it by her/him self .

 

the good thing also it has it is own workflow ,so still Helpdesk or admin to approve or deny , and it integrate with Microsoft SCCM .

 

this is the future , why to call Helpdesk of you can do it ur self .

 

now Self Service web or app spreading , and i beleive it is adding huge value .

 

ya last , SCCM 2012 has it own web for self service but microsoft didnt mention much .

 

Facebook Cache , twitter Cache , instagram Cache

Well the title is tricky , but this to draw attention , if you want to serve your customer with excellent customer experience , then you need to have CDNs ;

content delivery network (CDN) is a large distributed system of servers deployed in multiple data centers in the Internet. The goal of a CDN is to serve content to end-users with high availability and high performance. CDNs serve a large fraction of the Internet content today, including web objects (text, graphics, URLs and scripts), downloadable objects (media files, software, documents), applications (e-commerce, portals), live streaming media, on-demand streaming media, and social networks.

Most CDNs offers a partnership so Telecom or ISP can be a hub or a provider .

 

if you want to check which site is using which CDN then the best answer is

CDN PLANET

Zain Lte 4G external Router Antenna

If you are suffering from Weak Lte signal in your Zain Lte 4G router , i guess the best option is to get external antenna for it .

 

Zain router can support two Lte external Antenna from the back of the device

huaweib593-300x158

 

be careful dont buy any antenna from Kuwait market , make sure you get 1800 Mhz antenna . most kuwait shop are selling WIFI which is 2.4 Mh antenna claiming its for Lte , also some type ZAIN antenna on back of it and this is wrong .

 

if you like to get an antenna online you can get it from amazon.co.uk ( Lte Zain Compatible ). DeLock is the only one i could find online , Below it specification
