ADSL upload speed increase in June

0 Comments, posted in Uncategorized

ADSL SpeedWe previously covered the proposed Telkom ADSL upload speed increase trial in our post in February, news posted today confirms that the ADSL line speed on the 4 Mb/s ADSL service will be increased to an upload speed of 512 kbps from the end of June. This is a marginal increase from the current 384 kbps, but will allow for better throughput for 2 way services like VOIP and ADSL VPN.

So, using a VOIP example:

If you use the G729a VOIP codec (40kbps per voice channel) you will be able to have 12 simultaneous voice channels, previously you could only engage 9 channels safely with an upload speed of 384 kbps. So for no extra cost you will now get an extra 3!

ADSL 4Mbps service = 384Kbps upload. (Current)
ADSL 4Mbps service = 512Kbps upload. (end June)

RSAWEB helps fight Xenophobia

1 Comments, posted in Uncategorized

Last week the horror of xenophobic attacks that had been gripping the country spread to Cape Town. With more than 18 000 foreign nationals displaced from their homes scared, cold,tired and hungry. Our staff decided to do something about it. Bianca Clavaux our HR coordinator had this to say “we just don’t realize how blessed we are and so many of our staff felt this was a time for us bless others in real need”. So within a few hours on Monday morning our staff helped raise R6 998 , then along with our other partner companies we matched each rand contributed by the staff, so in total we had R13 996.

A quick call to the Red Cross, (who have been doing really excellent work in rallying together volunteers and resources) and we had a shopping list of what was most needed. To fight the freezing cold Capewind we needed blankets, Makro said they had 194 in stock…..we bought them all! A while later and we had stacked 1221 tins of food. All in all this was 2 bakkie loads of goods, with no more space left we were off to the Wynberg Red Cross where we were met by a bunch of totally stoked volunteers who helped us offload all the goods, later to be distributed across the Cape Town area to those who needed it most.

Thank you to everyone who supported this initiative, if you would like to help fight xenophobia please contact the Red Cross via their website.

Geek Kama Sutra

0 Comments, posted in Uncategorized

PC’s and Servers surround us at RSAWEB , we talk to them all day and sometimes they get very needy and we have to attend to them at night too. This may prompt our real life girlfriends and wives to wonder what actually happens when our cellphone rings in the middle of the night, and we rush out the door after receiving an sms that reads:

“Web20.rsaweb.co.za not responding on port 80″

Bring on the IT Kama Sutra :)
