  1. Blue Sky Optical

    Slide 1 - Blue Sky Optical

    • We know you are committed to helping achieve the best vision possible for others.
    • Cirkuits has a have a vision for you!
  2. Your Network

    Slide 2 - Your Network

    • Alongside the services you already offer, your network is one of the most important services you have.
    • It will increase your:
    • Efficiency: Employees will have constantly updating unified information across all workstations, P.O.S., EMR.
    • Productivity: Having a stable, reliable, network, and the right tools will encourage front end users, backend staff, and management to work together to offer top performance.
    • Marketability: This network implementation is far reaching. It will allow self serve options that encourage growth. This in turn will add revenue increasing the bottom line.
    • Profitability: More revenue, more profit. More profit means keeping shareholders and potential investors interested in putting a modest to generous revenue stream back into the company!
  3. Network Model Comparison

    Slide 3 - Network Model Comparison

    • In networking, there a several topologies to choose from.
    • Topology : the way in which constituent parts are interrelated or arranged.
    • We have compared and contrasted three of the more widely used ones and chose the best fit for your business needs. We wanted you to see the advantages and disadvantages of each, to fully understand why we chose your solution.
  4. Star Topology

    Slide 4 - Star Topology

    • A star topology is designed with each node (file server, workstations, and peripherals) connected directly to a central network hub, switch, or concentrator .Data on a star network passes through the hub, switch, or concentrator before continuing to its destination. The hub, switch, or concentrator manages and controls all functions of the network. It also acts as a repeater for the data flow. This configuration is common with twisted pair cable; however, it can also be used with coaxial cable or fiber optic cable.
  5. Star Topology Cont…

    Slide 5 - Star Topology Cont…

    • Advantages
    • Easy to install and wire.
    • No disruptions to the network when connecting or removing devices.
    • Easy to detect faults and to remove parts.
    • Disadvantages
    • Requires more cable length than a linear topology.
    • If the hub, switch, or concentrator fails, nodes attached are disabled.
    • More expensive than some other topologies because of the cost of the hubs, etc.
  6. Linear Bus

    Slide 6 - Linear Bus

    • A linear bus topology consists of a main run of cable with a terminator at each end.All nodes (file server, workstations, and peripherals) are connected to the linear cable.
  7. Linear Bus cont…

    Slide 7 - Linear Bus cont…

    • Advantages
    • Easy to connect a computer or peripheral to a linear bus.
    • Requires less cable length than a star topology.
    • Disadvantages
    • Entire network shuts down if there is a break in the main cable.
    • Terminators are required at both ends of the backbone cable.
    • Difficult to identify the problem if the entire network shuts down.
    • Not meant to be used as a stand-alone solution in a large building.
  8. Tree Topology

    Slide 8 - Tree Topology

    • Tree topology, also known as Hierarchical Topology, is the most common form of network topology in use present day. This topology imitates as extended Star Topology and inherits properties of Bus topology.
  9. Tree Topology cont…

    Slide 9 - Tree Topology cont…

    • Advantages
    • Point-to-point wiring for individual segments.
    • Supported by several hardware and software venders.
    • Disadvantages
    • Overall length of each segment is limited by the type of cabling used.
    • If the backbone line breaks, the entire segment goes down.
    • More difficult to configure and wire than other topologies.
  10. Winner: Tree Topology

    Slide 10 - Winner: Tree Topology

    • We felt that the tree topology was the best fit for your needs because it offered the most flexibility. It is highly scalable , stabile, and , fairly in expensive compared to what it offers you in terms of performance.
  11. Modifications to Tree Topology

    Slide 11 - Modifications to Tree Topology

    • We also decided to modify the Tree Topology and use an Internet-based implementation of it. This in turn allows it to be more:
    • Cost effective : With web-based applications, users access the system via a uniform environment—the web browser. While the user interaction with the application needs to be thoroughly tested on different web browsers, the application itself needs only be developed for a single operating system.
    • Accessible anywhere: Unlike traditional applications, web systems are accessible anytime, anywhere, via a PC with an Internet connection, putting the user in charge of where and when they access the services.
    • Easily customizable: The user interface of web-based applications is easier to customize than it is in desktop applications. This makes it easier to update the look and feel of the application, or to customize the presentation of information for different business purposes.
    • Accessible for a range of devices: In addition to customizing service offerings for clients, content can also be customized for presentation on any device connected to the internet, including tablets, mobile phones, etc., further extending the user’s ability to receive and interact with services.

  13. Benefits of Vision Model

    Slide 13 - Benefits of Vision Model

    • Offers Redundancy
    • Flexible Connection Options
    • Increases Company Reach
    • Decreases Staffing Requirements
    • Reduced Cost
  14. Disadvantages of Vision Model

    Slide 14 - Disadvantages of Vision Model

    • Potentially less secure: Increased security risks (Wireless/ BYOD).
    • Speed: Wireless can be much slower than ethernet.
    • Interference: Performance can be decreased due to interference from other wireless frequencies.
    • Coverage: The range of a wireless network is typically limited to 150-300 feet.
  15. Application Development

    Slide 15 - Application Development

    • Application and software development and deployment can be done in a wide array of ways. This presentation will focus on two of them.
    • In-house: An application developed within an organization or group for use by the same.
    • Packaged: An application program developed for sale to the general public.
  16. Application Development Pros

    Slide 16 - Application Development Pros

    • In-house
    • The level of customization.
    • Can cover every aspect of your business without unnecessary extras. 
    • Gives you greater control.
    • Packaged
    • Packaged software has the benefit of being extensively tested and used by other businesses.
    • You can expect a relatively fast deployment; purchase the software and install it immediately.
  17. Application Development Cons

    Slide 17 - Application Development Cons

    • In-house
    • In-house developers could lack the knowledge and expertise to create sophisticated software capable of handling all the tasks you require.
