Comments Off on Clovis Municipal Schools selects RSI, Inc. again for PTP Wireless Bridges

Clovis Municipal Schools is once again relying on Responsive Services International (RSI, Inc.) to assist them with multiple-radio PTP wireless bridges to increase throughput speeds to outlying school campuses.  By combining multiple 802.11n 5GHz band wireless radio units, RSI, Inc. is able to help Clovis Municipal utilize their gigabit fiber network to deliver over 100 Mbps of throughput speed to outlying campuses up to 10 miles away.  On closer links, we’re able to deliver over 300+ Mbps.  With the ever increasing costs of leasing fiber (when unable to purchase it), going wireless to provide fast connectivity is not only an economical solution, but a smart one as well.  RSI, Inc. has been involved in wireless, and PTP outdoor wireless bridges, for many years and continues to bring this expertise to the table for our clients.  If you’re tired of paying exorbitant charges for leased fiber, maybe it’s time you took another look at wireless.

Over the past year did you know that Denial of Service (DOS) & Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks have increased by 78%, according to a recent survey conducted on October of 2013.  How can you prevent one of these from taking down your network for hours or even days in some instances and how do you protect yourself?  Well, first you need to understand what these are and how they affect your bandwidth, and then you call on someone like Responsive Services International (RSI, Inc.) and let us help you implement a network strategy that includes a next generation firewall, web and/or application filtering solutions, as well other means we have to eliminate this problem from affecting your organization.  Also, it appears that school districts have been hit the hardest with these types of attacks and they will continue unless you have a solution in place to prevent them from bringing your network down to its knees.  We urge all of our school district friends and clients to look into this now before you become a victim of one of these types of attacks, and hopefully not a the wrong moment (like during online student testing).  It is not advisable to wait thinking your organization is too small or not visible enough, i.e. located in a large city, to suffer from one of these attacks, as we’re finding out that they can be ordered online and it doesn’t cost a lot to pay some entity to initiate one of these.  Please call us at (800) 658-2086, etc. 120 or email us at sales@responsive-services.com if you would like more information.

Data Backup is Critical & Can be Hosted

Comments Off on Data Backup is Critical & Can be Hosted

Did you know how critical it is for organizations to effectively and reliably backup their data, both onsite and offsite, and that this is a service you can buy without having to purchase the hardware yourself?  You can and Responsive Services International (RSI, Inc.) can help you.  We do offer a hosted data backup service that any organization – school district, hospital, city, small business, financial institution, and more – can afford and implement to better secure their network data in case of an attack, a system crash, or any number of other issues that could destroy and irreparably harm your organization.  We were recently called and asked to help a small organization that had a virus in their system and if we could remove it and restore their network files. Unfortunately, because of the type of virus and because they had no backup in place and the files were stored on a local drive of an employee’s PC, we could not restore many of these files though we were able to remove the virus, thus the data was lost.  This is a very costly way to discover you don’t have an adequate data backup solution and system in place.  Do not let this happen to your organization.  Please email us at RSI @ sales@responsive-services.com or call us @ (800) 658-2086, ext. 120, and find out how we can help your organization more cost effectively and securely handle your data backup needs.
