At B1 Network Systems Ltd we carefully selected our partners products to bring our clients the most premium products that bring more choice to the end users. privately hosting the physical server in your premises, easily select users permissions and settings, map drives straight to devices and access files remotely gives you the flexibility to control your files how you’ve always wanted to.

The IoT (Internet of Things) makes up the common 'smart' devices we all use in our personal and work lives, such as: Amazon Alexa, Google Chromecast, Nest Thermostat.


Whilst we may use these devices for fairly basic uses now, the ever evolving progression in AI (Artificial Intelligence) will further advance the capabilities of technology which we're starting to see.


By 2030 our lives will likely be consumed by unconscious reliability on automated processes in our lives, based on our lifestyle. Where a smart fridge can recognise the stock levels and expiry dates of its contents, have new produce automatically delivered and paid for without any work.


In addition, with the growing advancements in the Metaverse, we may see even more subconscious habits consumed by IoT.


What devices do you use in your home and what would you want to see in the future?

With cloud computing becoming one of the most significant advancements in technology over the recent decades 'the cloud' has become a household name - but what is it and why do I need it?


To many people's disbelief, 'the cloud' is made up of physical servers and datacentres across the globe that serve the public internet and private intranets. The benefits of using these services is the reliability and security measures that are regularly in place, however at B1 Network Systems Ltd we give our customers the flexibility of on-site or remote storage.


Having on-site storage as a service means that you have more control and flexibility over your data and where it is physically secured - giving you the choice and redundancy over your information.


Remote storage means that your files are still stored in the same way but the physical location is separate from your office, meaning that we remove the liability and responsibility for the physical security of your equipment.


Alternatively you can have both, with primarily having storage on site and remote backups.


We give our clients as much choice and flexibility as possible so that they have the best solution for their needs, so we will leave it to you to decide what's best!
