With the rapid emergence of smart mobile devices and ever-increasing data requirements, IT departments face the challenge of creating a secure environment that enhances employee productivity and user satisfaction.

It is critical that your wireless network is secure but it must also be able to control access levels for a wide variety of devices, apps and users. With the increasing adoption of unified communications, wireless networks have to support the demands of real-time voice and video. Blackstar Solutions have partnered with wireless specialists Huawei and Aruba Networks, who will evaluate your network demands and develop the right wireless solution to fit your needs. You can be assured of a scalable, agile and supportive infrastructure for your immediate requirements and future growth.

Your employees need quick, reliable and secure access to key applications and enterprise data from anywhere, at any time. Organisations expect the modern data centre to provide the agility, security and scalability to power growth and innovation.

The volume of data processed and stored continues to increase at a rapid pace, as does demand for enhanced application availability, security, cost control and energy efficiency. Blackstar Solutions provide a comprehensive range of data centre services, from connectivity and co-location services, to rack space, power and cooling. Our solutions are designed to seamlessly scale alongside your business needs, and support your business growth, rather than limiting it.

A structured cabling system is the wiring network that carries all of your communications systems throughout your office sites, including voice, data, multimedia, PoE, and even wireless.

It’s vital to make sure that your cabling infrastructure is properly planned, designed, installed and maintained, using high quality materials. Whether you’re looking for new installations, system upgrades, or moves/adds/changes, you can trust Blackstar to manage the whole process end to end, from planning and design, through to procurement, installation and ongoing maintenance.

Network security should be a high priority, to ensure complete peace of mind, knowing that your data is protected and regularly backed up.

Blackstar Solutions focus on prevention, and then monitor and detect threats to your system in real-time, taking immediate action if and when required. Anti-virus and malware protection will make sure that your systems are compliant with data protection regulations and are only accessible to the right people. Session border controllers (SBCs) from AudioCodes deliver seamless connectivity, enhanced security and quality assurance, forming an effective demarcation point between your VoIP network and the service provider’s SIP trunk. They perform SIP protocol mediation and media handling (interoperability), as well as securing the enterprise VoIP network. Working with Fortinet, Blackstar also offer firewall technology with excellent protection capabilities and threat management including anti-spam, anti-virus and web filtering.
