Irish Internet Service providers are actively signing up their customers to eFibre. While this service is faster in comparison to traditional broadband, customers should be aware that changing over will, in many cases require a site visit from Trojan alongside your provider, to ensure that downtime is kept to a minimum.
Changing over without preparing your site, could cause a significant Internet outage for your business.
In the case of Eir (Eircom) migrations, please also note that there is an ongoing issue with the Eircom supplied F2000 routers for eFibre whereby they cannot be configured correctly to use a static IP Address.
Eir (Eircom) have been aware of this for a number of months but have as yet failed to address the issue.
Their sales reps are not making business clients aware of this fact either.
If you are changing your internet / broadband provider or you are upgrading your broadband to eFibre please contact us to discuss your situation and requirements, so that we can then prepare you and your site for the minimal amount of downtime and disruption as possible.

Sometimes you need to meet people that sit across the globe, or even just some kilometers away, and on those moments you can rest assured Chromebox for Meetings has your back!
There are several good things to consider about this kit, but to put it bluntly you’ll get to connect and sync to meetings with up to 15 people – nationally and internationally alike.
Connecting seamlessly through video is no longer a challenge, and you aren’t going to face those dial-in codes ever again.
What are the Contents of the Chromebox for Meetings Kit?
The kit is a complete set and it will allow you to tackle every obstacle you can face. To be a bit more specific, you’ll be looking at:
- An HD Camera;
- An Omni-Directional Microphone / Speaker;
- The ASUS M064U Chromebox;
- A 1 Year Google Management and Support;
- Remote Controller / Mouse / Keypad;
So as you can see, there’s a whole package of goodies you can use either to speak, hear, see and be seen during virtual meetings, and the setup is easy and with no dial up procedures.
You just need one simple button click to start the conversation and share your screen with others, making everything run smoothly.
No More Hassles Setting Up:
If we had to mention one thing, it would probably be the fact that you won’t face any thick setting up procedures, but a lightweight setup wizard to make managing the kit an easy action – of course you’ll have 24/7 support, as this is also an included feature.

With so many Google Doodles it’s hard to believe that google have only subtly changed their logo twice in that last 15 years. Take a look at our evolution chart so see the changes the logo has taken.
Google’s new logo uses a simpler sans-serif typeface combining the mathematical purity of geometric forms with the childlike simplicity of schoolbook letter printing.
And of course retaining the quirky “e” to show Google still do not see themselves as a conventional company.
In a blog post on the new logo google gave us a glimpse into what might have been with 2 designers discussing some of the options on the board.
With Google already infiltrating every digital device we own we are going to be seeing lots of this logo.

SplashData has released a list of the top 25 common passwords. Being so common among users this makes them vulnerable to brute force attacks by hackers. Hence the top 25 most common passwords is also the top 25 worst passwords to have.
If your password is listed below, change it NOW.
The list has been compiled from more than 3.3 million leaked passwords during 2014. According to SplashDash; the passwords evaluated were mostly held by users in north America and western Europe.
“Passwords based on simple patterns on your keyboard remain popular despite how weak they are,” said Morgan Slain, CEO of SplashData. “Any password using numbers alone should be avoided, especially sequences. As more websites require stronger passwords or combinations of letters and numbers, longer keyboard patterns are becoming common passwords, and they are still not secure.”
For example, users should avoid a sequence on your keyboard such as “qwertyuiop,” which is the top row of letters on a standard keyboard.
“1qaz2wsx” is also a bad idea, just look at your keyboard to figure out why.
So here are our top tips for a secure password.
Keep it secret.
Don’t share your password with anyone.
Don’t post it in plain sight.
Don’t write a password in an email (that may be forwarded to someone accidently)
Don’t use just one password
If your only password was to get compromised, it would leave everything you used it for also compromised.
And if one site you use it for was to get hacked, your other accounts would be vulnerable.
Don’t “Keep it Simple Stupid”
Keep your password at least 8 characters long, use numbers, capital letters and symbols. If you have trouble remembering, use a phrase. For example. Mf$1avng (short for “My friend Sam is a very nice guy) is an excellent password.
Keep your computer secure
The best password won’t protect against Malware such as Key loggers that record everything you write. Keep your antivirus up to date, don’t click on links or open file from people you don’t know.
