- Sensors are simple or complex devices that convert physical properties in to electrical signals. For example, sensing the temperature or humidity in an environment and converting the analog signals in to digital signals.
- Controllers are devices which convert the electrical signals in to physical properties. For example, turning on or off a switch or a motor. They are devices which allow to perform an action based on the data received through a digital signal.
- Internet – as we all know – is a network of devices that use the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and links billions o devices worldwide.
Do you have a slow starting Outlook 2013 which takes ages to load the profile? If so, here is a fix that worked for me when I ran in to the same issue.
Recently I upgraded my Microsoft Office to 2013 and over a period of time, my profile load time went from seconds to minutes. Once I clicked on the Outlook 2013 icon, all I had to do was to stare at the Loading Profile screen. Moreover, I also noticed that the performance of Outlook was slow when I switched from Mail to Contacts or Calendar. At first I thought that it was time for me to repair my profile and so I went ahead with it. Started repair -> Repair done! Result: No Success.
I started patching my Microsoft Office with all the latest patches that were released by Microsoft. But still the issue prevailed. Since I am a Microsoft fan, I restrained myself from cursing the new upgrade and started thinking and working on the issue. Finally I found that the issue was with my Nvidia Graphics card – but only with Outlook. To fix the issue, here is what I did:
- Open Outlook and let the profile load
- Click on File and select Options
- Go to Advanced and scroll down to the Display section
- Enable “Disable hardware acceleration”
Once done, restart Outlook and things should work like a charm.
Wireless no longer plays second fiddle to the traditional wired network. IT Deployments have evolved from basic configurations in conference rooms and corridors to large implementations covering entire buildings and campuses. As IT departments continue the long transformation process to virtual and hybrid infrastructures, one factor remains constant – they need to know what is happening on their network, because
without the network being up and performing well, nothing works. The key to operational efficiency means more automation and integrated management solutions, so that network managers and operators can focus on managing the network rather than managing the network management system.
A unified network management platform that provides a holistic perspective of all network assets can help network admins quickly diagnose and resolve issues on either network, ultimately improving performance and reducing operating expenses.
The concept of unified network management has been discussed for years, so it is not quite an emerging technology. Network engineers can identify, configure, monitor, update and troubleshoot all of their wired and wireless network devices from a single integrated console. This approach — often referred to as a “single pane of glass” — eliminates the need for network admins to toggle between multiple network management tools to diagnose a performance issue or reconfigure devices.
