Our agenda covers Networking and Security both in Australia and internationally, and with an extensive background in recruiting solutions we promote choices that lead to great career opportunities. As an organization with years of experience, we provide our clients with professional guidance and worthy decision-making.
Here at PATH4 Group, we understand the increasing need for Networking and Security specialists, as well as their role in today’s businesses. In Information Technology, Networking is a way to connect or link two or more systems together while establishing communication between them. Even networks can connect to other networks, or even contain smaller networks defined as subnetwork, and everything is connected together to function in the virtual space. Networking is also distinguishable by the distances it covers:
- Local Area Networks (LANs)
- Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs)
- Wide Area Networks (WANs)
- Campus Area Networks (CANs)
- Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)
- Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs)
Networks are much more complex than simply being standardized by area covered; they differ from one another in multiple ways like the type of network protocol used, the signals sent, its user base, physical connection, or even the type of connection. Examples of these features are:
- Network Protocols such as TCP/IP or SNA
- Signal transmissions such as voice, data, or both
- User base such as private or public networks
- Connection types such as Dial-Up, Dedicated, or Virtual Connections
- Physical connections such as through optical fibres or coaxial cables
These networks are almost unlimited in number but they are able to grow larger through agreements and contracts with other networks, such as a phone network with an internet network. Through these networks, individuals, groups, or organizations easily connect to each other and access information available on other networks and so on; similarly to users connecting altogether in the same virtual space that is the Internet.
The ever-growing trend of networking is all the more reason to secure your future job at an aspiring company that may someday make its place as a leading Networking and Security organization. The world today is run by digitalization, consolidation, deregulation, and globalization, and these trends altogether are shaping up today’s technology and the way of networking.
Digitalization is the solution toward information transmission that allows using the same language or technique to transfer data back and forth on different networks and computer systems. From computers to personal electronics, digitalization has brought about a change that is effective in delivery, low in cost, and reliable.
Consolidation goes hand in hand with Digitalization in that it is a way of converting any kind of data into the same type. Physical pictures, games, or documents are all being consolidated into the virtual format that is usable by anyone, even TV Networks are able to provide both TV, Internet, and phone communication through a single operator.
Deregulation is suggestive of operations, organizations, and networks being run privately in order to introduce competitiveness and market demand to environments that strive in providing their clients with many options to choose from. Deregulation is only reinforced by digitalization and consolidation since it enables the user with a free choice to make in choosing any operator for their services.
In simple terms, globalization means integration. It is the unification of numerous technologies that are able to run throughout the globe, hence the name globalization. It is the feature of an interconnected marketplace that is not limited by geographic possibilities, language or cultural boundaries, but rather operable in any condition and at any time in the world.
Success Story: The NBN broadband network
One of the newest networks in Australia, known as NBN, are on their way in the development of a nation-wide product that is able to connect 93% of Australia’s population, including homes, schools and work organizations through optical fibres, providing unlimited access and stable broadband services all over Australia’s urban and regional towns. The remaining households will be further able to connect through wireless and satellite services.
NBN has been estimated a cost of $34.9 billion in construction and deployment that will last for a decade. As a claimed Government Business Enterprise, this project is by far the largest aimed at developing the nation’s infrastructure. The network is said to replace current telephony and data transmission services in the near future.
