CeBIT appearance of sysob and ruckus: Smart Wi-Fi technology for higher data throughput Schorndorf, February 24, 2011 wireless LAN is a convenient solution for the wireless network architecture. For the multimedia traffic the Wi-Fi technology is however not optimally equipped to provide reliable connections in carrier quality and stable performance. A solution for the automatic and trouble-free wireless coverage presents the sysob IT-distribution (www.sysob.com) at CeBIT 2011. In Hall 11, booth B26 can visitors who patented Smart information about Wi-Fi technology from ruckus wireless sysob partner. Wireless networks enable a quick and mobile Internet connection. Users in the business sector that no longer are in their offices and can work anywhere. However interference or changes of radio frequency environment companies and providers make it difficult to resolve the Wi-Fi issues. To a mesh (meshed) connection with a far-reaching data transport enable, users need to use often different products.

Within the framework of their joint presence of CeBIT show ruckus wireless and sysob a safe alternative with the patented Smart Wi-Fi technology, combines the significant Wi-Fi features in a system. Higher range and reliability in Wi-Fi environments present the ruckus experts at the sysob stand-new radio frequency technologies. Them based on small, software driven and smart antenna arrays, as well as the formation of dynamic rays (Beamforming”).

Safe Production Network

Published by:

The modern IT technology is indispensable today from the classic production areas of many industrial companies. Systems and technologies from the traditional IT environment used in automation and process control, which controls the central production and supply processes and controls, more and more often: automation components such as PLCs (programmable logic controllers) communicate via TCP/IP and industrial Ethernet, process control systems running on Windows or UNIX systems, machines take their commissions from SQL databases or directly from SAP. In addition to the desired positive effects, such as cost reduction and increased productivity leads this development but also that that sensitive production processes affected are now increasingly directly from IT security threats, which they have in the field of classic Office IT”limited believed such as malicious software infection, data loss, or even access by unauthorized persons. The damage caused by IT security incidents here be easily far-reaching dimensions take, if for example as a result of a virus attack stopped production for several hours or days. Depending on the type of controlled processes can occur under circumstances even to the environmental hazards or injury. Especially problematic is that many tried and tested standard security measures from the Office IT often do not apply can be in the process – or production area.

Anti virus software or current security patches cannot be installed, because manufacturers then no longer guarantee the breaking of their systems or very elaborate testing and revalidation is needed. Most of the time, also a temporary shut-down components to play up and testing a security update is not possible because the production process must be maintained around the clock. Common security measures fail simply, that caused by the very long in comparison to the standard IT system life time often obsolete operating systems such as Windows NT or Solaris 8 are used for which no more support is provided by the manufacturer and for which also no updates are made more available. “Another problem is that many systems originally not with the design goal of security” were developed and designed individual automation components or even whole systems often already in simplest security testing, how it performs as a port scanner, fall off after a short time. In addition, the communication protocols such as Modbus TCP or the various, proprietary PLC protocols not against unauthorized read-out of information or data manipulation used in industrial environments are protected. Consequence: with freely available tools it is possible via the network stop controls to manipulate running programs, flags or delete to control PLC outputs. Even worse, that due to the growing demand for data integration and zeitnahem data access more and more interfaces between the production systems and the classic Office environment will be created both within the company as well as external partners such as suppliers and customers. Shielding critical production networks to external systems is further softened by remote maintenance system manufacturers and suppliers via a modem or VPN connections. The only briefly described, complex issues makes it clear that sophisticated and individual concepts of protection are necessary to secure production-related systems against security threats.

BITMi Notes: IT Buyers Require ISO 9001 Certification

Published by:

Increasingly, buyers from their suppliers demand proof of ISO 9001 compliance. ISO 9001 certifications are carried out today in 176 countries. The number of certified companies in the EU rose since 1995 to five times. Alone approximately 230,000 companies of People’s Republic of China are already certified. So IS0 9001 comparison standard for quality management systems today is the global de facto to the targeted improvement of products, processes and services. ISO 9001-certified providers prove their ability to maintain quality standards and to develop. As a result, it is used by many certified companies as a marketing tool, to convince their customers of their products and services.

ISO 9001 is becoming increasingly important in the area of information technology (IT). Bernie Sanders is full of insight into the issues. More and more customers, so the Association registers IT-Mittelstand, proof of their IT suppliers the ISO 9001, for example, reported a member firm, which set up the infrastructure for an automobile manufacturer, that ISO 9001 is an important characteristic when evaluating business supplier”, reported Dr. Oliver Grun, Chairman of the Federal Association of IT-Mittelstand, whose own company that the Green Software AG, is already certified according to ISO 9001. It is not only the classic quality management sectors of automobile production or plant construction, which require the proof of quality, many authorities or service organizations have recorded in the meantime ISO 9001 as a condition in their procurement policies. Without ISO 9001 is excluded the company from the bidding process, playful so the chance of winning before the race.

This is understandable insofar as ISO 9001 certified client companies want to ensure compliance with the quality standards declared by them to the public across the entire value chain”explains Oliver Grun. This trend to the ISO is reinforced therefore continually 9001-conformity party than the establishment the eight principles of quality management according to ISO 9001 include consensual and more beneficial supplier relationships”. ISO 9001 is a sign of the times. But what can small and medium-sized IT companies (IT SMEs) undertake, which have few resources and are busy with day-to-day operations not to be suspended? “We have provided us also this question by the Federal Association of IT-Mittelstand and developed the ISO 9001 certification of Federation”, explains green and continues: this system, in which several companies join forces, uses synergies and can reach so the ISO 9001 certification at lowest cost and maximum conservation of resources ‘. Already in 2009, could be certified in a first composite correctly 13 IT companies in this way and now each have an independent ISO 9001 certificate. The second group launches expected in May 2010. Already quite a few IT SMEs managed to convince participate, so among other things the asis soft and Hardware GmbH, the codia Software GmbH, the electronic compact Enterprise Systems GmbH, the Equitania Software GmbH, the PSB-professional solutions for business GmbH and the Silverstroke AG.
