Truth. Time flies when you’re having fun. We at RTL are excited to share that this upcoming March 1st, RTL will be celebrating our 25th anniversary. In the last 5 years, RTL has experienced continued growth and success.

There is a shift in how businesses use technology. New applications, including Voice over IP VoIP phone systems, Cloud Based Email, File Sync & Sharing all require solid network infrastructure. According to a recent report from the Enterprise Strategy Group, Demonstrating SD-WAN Business Value: Rethinking WAN for a Modern Age, distributed organizations with multiple Remote Office/Branch Office (ROBO) locations may need to reduce unnecessary deployment and management of network infrastructure.
The market for Cloud Computing is maturing.

It’s the end of an era in payment processing. Effective May 2017, NCR will no longer sell new large remittance processing scanners and will discontinue the manufacture of the iTran. Support will be made available on existing scanners until May 2022.
This follows the recent decision by Burroughs to discontinue the large Quantum scanners, which will be supported until March of 2020. With the loss of NCR and Burroughs the choice for large – high speed check scanners is significantly reduced, but you do have viable options.
The OPEX Falcon, a One Touch Opener/Extractor/Scanner is one and on the other end of the spectrum are desk top scanners for lower volumes manufactured by Canon and Digital Check.

According to the technology industry research firm Gartner Group, ninety percent of companies that experience data loss go out of business within two years. Countless studies indicate the longer the downtime, the greater the risk. More and more businesses are turning to Cloud Backup and collation to ensure their critical data is protected. But how long will it take to restore that data when a disaster strikes? Here are some points to consider to minimize the risk of downtime.
It’s that time of year when many businesses are setting goals and budgets for next year. This is a good time to reflect on the impact technology can have on your business. While Cloud Computing adoption remains strong, companies will increase migration from Public to Private Cloud and even migrate back “on premise.” Cloud adoption, digital transformation and streaming media will increase the demand for bulletproof networking.
We all know, not being able to get on the WiFi is annoying. But worse still, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks can impact your business and even interfere with vital infrastructure such as electrical grids.

Businesses today rely on resilient network connectivity to ensure employee communications, collaboration, and productivity. Applications including Voice over IP (VoIP), Hosted Contact Center, Cloud Backup, and more, need a bulletproof telecom network. What’s more, for companies with Remote Offices/Branch Offices ROBO), telecom expense can quickly add up.
