NBN Live in Clare

Network cabling, patch panel and switch - NAR DesignFibre to the Node (FTTN) NBN is now active in Clare and NAR Design can assist getting you connected. This type of fixed line uses the existing copper to connect to a “Node” in your street, hopefully not too far away. The “Node” connects to fibre optic cable that connects to the rest of the NBN network.

NBN Connection Options in Clare

If you have a business we recommend connecting on a different line to your ADSL for redundancy. There may be an additional cost but this removes the problem of a failed migration resulting in no internet for a period of time. If the internet connection is important to you or your business, please go with this option.

Speed may now be a choice for your connection! The current connection to your home or business is most likely ADSL2+ with downloads up to 24Mbps and uploads up to 1Mbps. Depending on your distance from the Node, NBN offers speed tiers over FTTN (using VDSL) of 25/5Mbps, up to 50/20Mbps and up to 100/40Mbps.

New phone systems are now available to you at very competitive rates. We can supply systems with no upfront costs, included calls and new handsets – contact us for more information.

Windows 10 Versions – which to choose

Windows 10 Editions Compare Table Windows10-editionsMost people thinking about upgrading to Windows 10 will be using the same hardware (laptop, desktop, all-in-one or convertible) for the upgrade. But if you are planning a new computer, network or just replacing the odd machine, which Windows 10 license do you require?

Here is a list of the features from Microsoft. If you are after just the differences between versions, skip to page two.

Some of the considerations might be:

Will you connect to an on site Microsoft server or Microsoft Azure service?

Do you need to remote into other computers with Remote Desktop?

Is there a need to run a virtual machine on your computer?

Is your business or software vendor creating an App for the Windows store?

Do you have a requirement to schedule updates in the future?

If you are answering “yes” to any of the above questions, you’ll need to consider Windows 10 Professional at a minimum.
