Improving Internet Access Following Meetinghouse Firewall Upgrade - Part 2 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Sharon Howell   
Wednesday, 28 January 2015

Observing best practices when using the meetinghouse Internet will reduce network traffic, improve overall performance, and promote successful network connectivity for everyone. If you use the Internet in your meetinghouse, the suggestions below will provide valuable help.

Connecting your mobile devices to the public network

To use your device successfully, plan ahead. Perform Internet-intensive tasks, such as downloading content, installing apps, and performing software upgrades at home. If you are planning to use web content, download and save content to your device and then use meetinghouse audio visual equipment to project from your device rather than stream directly from the Internet. Where possible, disable wireless on the device and use mobile broadband (cellular connection), but be aware of the provisions of your provider’s data plan and the potential costs.

Question

What is your current position at the Church and what are your responsibilities?

Answer

Officially, I am an individual contributor. In practice, I’m a team member in Infrastructure’s Middleware group. Middleware responsibilities include proxy and caching solutions, ftp services, n-tier application and Web servers (multiple technology platforms), and some other stuff (that’s the technical term).

Within Middleware, I am part of the Public Facing Sites (PFS) team.  As implied, PFS’ focus is public sites and content, which include LDS.org , Newsroom , Mormon.org , and others. The team is responsible for the application environments’ availability and administration.  To that end, PFS integrates closely with partner organizations such as Dev and QA to provide useful content and products that perform effectively and are highly available.
