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."

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
