Property group outsources network management

Specialist network management a compelling option

Commercial property owner Investa Property Group has signed a two-year deal with NetStar Australia to manage the company's national data network.

Under the deal, NetStar will manage Investa's servers, firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, switches, routers, and wireless access points across Australia.

NetStar will also supply Investa with its NetManage real-time network monitoring and management service to provide improved network visibility, including 24 by 7 network support services.

Investa Property Group IT manager Mark Bancroft said his objective is to improve the reliability of the company's IT infrastructure, while simplifying the management and reducing the overall costs of IT.

"NetStar's NetManage service allows us to outsource a significant part of our IT management to a partner who has the expertise and track record to ensure our network continues to run at its peak," Bancroft said.

"We have a diverse network with five major offices, plus more than 60 one-to-three-person operations scattered across the country, so it's important we chose a reliable outsource partner in which we could be confident, to provide maximum network availability and prevent major outages."

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
