One of the biggest challenges faced by IT today is “bullet-proofing” the network. As organizations embrace the latest technologies in implementing IT enabled systems, security, confidentiality and privacy concerns as well as legal and regulatory compliance are issues that need immediate action. Many organizations today are focused in implementing network architecture based upon business urgency rather than security. Architecture design flaws are almost awakening for many organizations today. Security must be a multi-layered approach and Sands Networks ensures that all the layers gel together well to form a strong security posture for your organization. Sands Networks provides tailored security solutions for small to large organizations, telecommunication companies and government concerns. Sands Networks possesses proven competence in Information Security Risk Analysis and Management which is backed by an unprecedented resource pool of talent and experience in network security and privacy protection.

An uninterruptible power supply, also uninterruptible power source, UPS or battery backup, is an electrical apparatus that provides emergency power to a load when the input power source, typically mains power, fails. A UPS differs from an auxiliary or emergency power system or standby generator in that it will provide near-instantaneous protection from input power interruptions, by supplying energy stored in batteries. The on-battery runtime of most uninterruptible power sources is relatively short (only a few minutes) but sufficient to start a standby power source or properly shut down the protected equipment. A UPS is typically used to protect computers, data centers, telecommunication equipment or other electrical equipment where an unexpected power disruption could cause injuries, fatalities, serious business disruption or data loss. UPS units range in size from units designed to protect a single computer without a video monitor (around 200 VA rating) to large units powering entire data centers or buildings.

We help our customers identify their automation needs and suggest the best possible solutions to fulfill those needs, thus enabling them to maximize business value for their investment.
Although the physical layout of a network will to some extent be determined by its size and the type of networking technology chosen, the cabling system is a critical element of any network. It is generally accepted that a significant number of network failures are caused primarily by cable-related problems. Getting the cabling system right, therefore, is essential for an effective data communications system. The standards define how to design, build, and manage a cabling system that is structured, meaning that the system consists of a number of discrete sub-systems or blocks, each of which has specific performance characteristics. The blocks are organized hierarchically within a unified communication system. A workgroup LAN block, for example, has lower-performance requirements than a network backbone block, which usually requires high-performance fibre-optic cable. The standards have evolved to support high-speed networking technologies such as Gigabit Ethernet, and advanced cable types such as Category 6 and Category 7 twisted pair cable. Structured cabling or premise wiring defines a generic telecommunication wiring system for commercial buildings, and comprises the cabling, connectors and accessories used to connect local area network and telephone system equipment within a building. It breaks cabling systems down into two main elements, horizontal wiring and vertical (or backbone) wiring. Structured cabling standards define the media, topology, termination and connection points, and administrative practice to be used.
In SDN Architecture, the data and control plan are decoupled, network intelligence and state are logically centralized, and underlying network infrastructure is abstracted from the applications. SDN facilitates automated network management and makes it easier and more cost effective to integrate and administer applications. A fully Programmable and Application-led Network is the key to address the rapidly evolving trends in ICT by quickly expanding network functions and introducing new functions in a software-defined mode. SDN Controllers normally used are OpenStack and OpenFlow or some proprietary products.
