Happy Birthday World Wide Web

Image result for happy birthday internet

Last week the world wide web had its 30th birthday.

In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee and other scientists at CERN, , were frustrated because they were unable to share the experiments and data stored on their many different computers. He proposed a system whereby information in one part of the globe was connected to every other part – easily searched, available to all and not controlled by anyone.

That vision of universal connectivity became the world wide web.

 

If you’d asked me 10 years ago, I would have said humanity is going to do a good job with this. If we connect all these people together, they are such wonderful people they will get along. I was wrong.

– Tim Berners-Lee

 

As we share in this video published by CNBC- the internet isn’t what Tim Berners-Lee pictured when he invented the WWW.

ISDN is due for disconnection later this year. Will this impact you?

It might seem a long way off, but the eventual shut down of the Australian ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) will be here sooner than you think. By 30th September 2019  disconnection will commence for existing ISDN connections –  by 2022 Telstra will discontinue supporting its ISDN products all together.

As the NBN continues to roll out across the country, what should businesses be doing in preparation for the switch?

If you are currently using ISDN to connect to your onsite phone system then you will need to be migrated to SIP to avoid having your phone system disconnected.

With our help the transfer to SIP is quick and easy – and compared to the old phone system – you can save you a lot of money!

 

Windows Server 2008 End-of-Life Support is near.

This year Microsoft will end all support for Windows Server 2008 R2.

 

What does this Mean? Microsoft will no longer provide automatic fixes, updates, or online technical assistance. Vulnerabilities in the operating system that are discovered after this date will not be fixed by Microsoft. Furthermore,  Microsoft will no longer offer any type of support for the operating system. It won’t be long before those systems are specifically targeted and exploited by hackers.

What can you do? It is time to begin planning now. An operating system upgrade likely requires a new server and possibly new software.

The moral of this story is ….If you are still running Windows Server 2008 R2 the time to start planning and implementing change is now.
