  23. UNIT 3B - The impact of ICT on an adult in employment, including the effects on his/her working style

    Texting is an excellent feature as it means that he is able to contact someone without disturbing them. Likewise, it is easy for Mr Nash to receive texts whilst he is at school teaching, rather than disturb a meeting or class to receive a call. This feature helps Mr Nash meet his social and work-related needs. The second feature of the mobile phone is being able to access the internet. However, this does not meet any of his needs efficiently as it is more expensive and slower than a LAN internet connection for a computer. He rarely uses this feature because of these drawbacks and a more efficient internet connection on his phone would drastically improve the ease with which his mobile phone can help him meet all of his needs.

  • Discuss the factors determining network specification for a small business.

    "In conclusion, if cost is your main issue and you are not too concerned about the flexibility of your network, a wired LAN is probably the best option. However, the cost of building and implementing a wireless network is decreasing as technology becomes more advanced, so is definitely worth considering if prepared to pay a small amount more. Security on both types of networks is moderate - ultimately, regardless of whether you go for wireless or wired, your network will be as secure as you are prepared to make it, with the introduction of firewalls etc. Both type of networks perform well and are generally similar in terms of reliability, although it is important to be aware of problems with newer hardware. Installing a wired network is more time consuming and costly, due to amendments to furniture/walls to accommodate cabling."
