Several factors have been proposed as providing a rationale for mergers. Among the more prominent ones are (I) tax considerations, (2) diversification, (3) control, (4) purchase of assets below replacement cost, and (5) synergy. From the standpoint of society, which of these reasons are justifiable? Which are not? Why is such a question relevant to a company like ICI, which is considering a specific acquisition? Explain your answers.
1981 : Acquired J. Aron & Company, a commodities trading firm. As a result of this merger, Lloyd Blankfein, the current CEO of Goldman, joined the firm.
Kris Corporation has asked IT Consultants to draft a proposal to address a number of the concerns Kris Corporation has with its current network. Kris Corporation is running Server 2008, with a parent domain and a child domain. There is a concern that this current configuration is not the most efficient. Kris Corporation would like one identity to obtain orders in real time. Kris Corporation has five locations, and the manufacturing plants are in two sites. The main location is in Atlanta, but space is a real concern, therefore it will require as little server equipment as possible. Yet, Atlanta holds most of the IT staff, while other locations hold a smaller amount of IT staff. All of the locations are independently connected
To ensure the wireless signal is transmitted to every corner of the office space I recommend routers set-up with 4 directional antennas and a centralized Omni-directional antenna. The use of 2.4 GHz routers will increase data transmission speed 460-600 Mbps and provide 11 channels per router to support decrease in network collisions and prevent data packet from being dropped (Lazar, n.d.). All computing devices must be equipped with latest Windows 10 for business and use VPN tunnels to remotely connect and send print jobs to the Austin location. In addition, all workstations must manually be configured with the latest printer drivers to recognize the device.
There is several different types of components that enable the internet and help the web function correctly upon your computer. A few of these things are; Uploading and FTP, Web Servers, network routers, proxy servers, ISPs, Web Hosting Services, and Domains. I will be explaining all of these components in as much detail as possible.
This can be used to set the border line of what people can think of about the network. With this layer it will be able to interconnect with networks and will decide how the layers can do this process. It will be able to can concentrate and determine how the data will get from one remote network to the computer. Also it will take care with devices which are local. This is mainly tasked to take care of is routing which allows data to be moved the data across the series of networks which are connected. Software routines will handle traffic that is coming in from different sources and that will choose where it will end up. Towards the end it will work out where it need to go and which devices will take the data. Also devices and software such as for interface card for the device driver. This is allowing the data to handle incoming packets from various locations and it select the last place it travels to.
The merger of wireless sensor networks and wired networks required for routing protocols, i.e. the Internet. So, there are still some future investigation possible
Cost: Networkable versions of many popular software programmes are available at significant savings compared to buying individual licensed copies. It also allows easier upgrading of the program.
To get started the LAN would be the main configuration for connecting the computers on each floor with star typology. Star topology will connect all nodes individually to a central connection point also known as the switch. A pro with this configuration if a cable fails only one node will be brought down and the rest will continue running. In addition, we can use twisted pair for the wire used to simply to cancel out electromagnetic interface from external sources since there will be multiple computers next to each other. The copper wire will lead to a switch connecting the devices together on the same network. This will also lead to the building backbone network. Also, known as the distribution layer, because it will be distributing network traffic to and from the LANs. Now those that we have the wire network it’s also recommended to have a wireless network in each building because many students will be using their own devices. We can simply set up 802.11 (WiFi) since we already have a wire network the campus should get by to support the users.
And unlike cable modems, DSL is not a bus technology, so the bandwidth available to the end user is more consistent.However, despite all of its positive attributes, DSL is not without flaw. For instance, in order to be eligible for DSL, the end user must be geographically within a certain distance from the central telephone office,otherwise the signal degradation is too great and DSL is unfeasible (for ADSL that distance is two miles.) In addition, numerous standards still exist for DSL,hardware is still comparatively pricey, and service is available only in limited areas. Despite these drawbacks, DSL is still a faster alternative to analog modems and ISDN, and should rival cable modems as far as actual bandwidth
1.3 How do local area networks (LANs) differ from wide area networks (WANs) and backbone networks (BNs)
When asked what a network is, I usually think about the internet or my phone’s network. It had never occurred to me to go further in depth on the subject. In order to fully understand what a network is we must look into what all networks have in common. All networks whether they are a broadcast, a computer, or a business network (the list goes on) all share common traits. There exists a hierarchy within each network and the more connections one has, the better. For example, within a business network the more connections one has, the higher the position they can gain. All networks are self-motivated, transfers knowledge, contains subnetworks, have a set of protocols, rules, can have bad connections and they all have a connection in a common
Over the years, the design of telephone systems becomes more complex.Back in the early days of telephone existent, pairs of copper wires or fibre-optic cables connecting terminals to a local switching centre were in motion.Trunk cables connecting switching centres or exchanges within a community were even used. As time passed, our technology changed, the invention of the telephone represented a significant advance over any other communicating techniques.
This essay is based on the case “Bank of America: Mobile Banking” which is dated on May 2012. We will first present benefits mobile banking provide to consumers and highlight reasons why many consumers haven’t adopted mobile banking yet. Furthermore, we will look into Bank of America motivation to offer mobile banking to its customers and review associated costs and risks of mobile banking implementation. Then understand what lessons can the bank learn from its online banking operations and analyze costs and benefits of having customers migrate to online banking. Finally, we will review how mobile technology is likely to influence the banking industry in the future.
Starting with branched out from Binariang GSM Sdn Bhd as a subsidiary, Maxis Communiations Berhad (Maxis) is a service provider company for telecommunications and internet technology in Malaysia. It was begun in 1995 where the company used the dialling prefix identifier of ‘012’, ‘014’ and ‘017’. The company offered 900 and 1800 MHz Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) band. After that, the company uses the 2100 MHz Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) band in July 2005. Besides, Maxis was the first to introduce 3G services in this country. Next, the company uses High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) to enhance the high speed 3G network in which promoting wireless broadband services. Other than that,
