An Overview of the SME Sector
Over the last five decades, the Indian Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) sector has grown to a large extent and is considered a dynamic unit of the Indian economy. With constant expansion in this sector, several corporate functions are dependent on the Internet and its services.

·         40% of Indian workforce belongs to the SME sector
·         It plays an important role in generation of employment, specially for low-skilled workers

However, SME’s have low levels of performance because of poor adoption of technology.
Internet and adequate knowledge in the field of technology plays an important part in the functioning of SMEs
Following are the benefits that Internet services provide to SMEs
·         In this digital era, an online presence is vital for an SME and provides twice as much growth as compared to an SME with no presence.
·         Post-Its, white boards and papers take a back seat while the inception of start ups depend on digitalized functions.
·         Business operations such as recruitment, client interactions, data storage and social network presence take place online

This digital revolution has brought about a change in how business is conducted and has also brought about significant increase in the amount of Internet users and mobile users per device.

Chrome Hacks you Need to Know

Chrome is one of the most popular browsers. It has become a favorite with most internet users because of its easy-to-use interface and low resource consumption. However, there is a lot more to Chrome that can give you an even better experience.

Chrome has many features that will make tasks simple and efficient. These features allow you to enjoy a personalized and superior internet experience. 

Here are some Chrome hacks that you need to know:

  • You need not search for a recently received coupon code. Use the special Honey button on Chrome to get the codes and learn about sales when searching online.
  • Get any word or phrase translated in your preferred language using the Language Immersion option. 
  • The Panic button helps you to close all your tabs with just one click. This will save you whenever anyone comes near your laptop or desktop.
  • Get notified when you receive a new mail, even while you are on some other tab with the Google Mail Checker.
  • Use AdBlock extension to block unwanted ads and banners on your screen. You may also select the websites whose ads you want.
  • OneTab lists all of your open tabs. The list helps you to manage them and keep a track.
  • If you get distracted during your work with other sites, use Simple Blocker. Select the duration for which you need to block access to selected domains.
  • Chrome Remote Desktop will let you access other computers from your device. It offers convenience to use office files while working from home.
  • Drag and drop an image to the search bar and you will get results suggesting similar images, and location of the picture, among others.
  • Use Chrome to Mobile and replicate your desktop to your mobile phone.
  • With MightyText, you need not switch between the keyboard and mobile to work and chat simultaneously. 
  • Use Grammarly to ensure whatever you type is grammatically correct.
  • Save time with TLDR that summarizes the entire webpage in a small box.
  • Use Sidenotes to create notes while surfing, without the need to change tabs.
  • Press Spacebar when the internet is down and enjoy the Dino Run game.
  • Create a secured password by typing ‘chrome://flags/#enable-password-generation’ in the URL tab.
  • If some pages on the browser are slow to load, shut it from the task manager.
  • Let Chrome reduce data usage on your mobile by enabling the option in data settings. 

These points have been suggested by Tikona Digital Networks. The Mumbai-based company is known for providing secured wireless broadband connections. Tikona broadband is offered in 25 cities of India. It is known for its high-speed and efficient service.

1.    Quick Activation:
Activating the Tikona service takes just a couple of days, once you complete the process of subscription with registration and payment.

2.    Maintenance Downtime:
There is rarely any down-time, even for maintenance. The company informs in advance when this is done. On most occasions, the network is down late in the night between 12 am and 3 am, so that work is not interrupted. 

3.    Customer Support:
Tikona has an excellent customer support system. The executives at the customer care center give correct and prompt responses. The technicians are also skilled. I got my issue resolved with an hour by Tikona.

Recognize the Different Mobile Internet Standards

There are a number of standard terms used for the internet and mobile network technology. These terms specify the features of the service and technology used.
With the rapid pace of digitization, most internet users do not understand the meaning of these terms. This makes them vulnerable to unscrupulous marketers who use vague terminology and jargon to trick consumers. For this reason, internet users should be better informed about the standard terms used in mobile and internet technology. This will help to choose the most suitable service.
CDMA and GSM
Most used radio standards in the mobile world are Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) and Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA). CDMA is more popular in the United States, while GSM is widely used in European and Asian countries. Most telecom companies based out of the United States roll out their networks on the GSM technology. This is why you will find more GSM phones in the market compared to CDMA phones.

Generations of Mobile Network Technologies

Mobile network technologies have evolving generations. G stands for generation in 2G, 3G, and 4G. The new generation is the advanced version of the previous one. 1G was an inefficient analog technology.

The first digital mobile network technology was 2G. 2G made mobile internet efficient and accessible. 3G technology brought wider access to high-speed broadband internet. Video streaming and video calling became possible with the 3G mobile network.

4G is the latest mobile wireless technology that delivers the best speeds till date. It makes watching High-Definition (HD) movies, TV shows, cloud computing and other such activities possible. 4G is deployed using Long-Term Evolution (LTE) and Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMax) technologies. 4G networks offer high speeds of up to 1 Gbps for stationary wireless access.
Speed Standards
When specifying the speed of the internet connection, you need to know that B is different from b. B stands for byte and b stands for bit. 1 byte is equal to 8 bits. For instance, the download speed of 1 Mbps is equal to 1024 Kbps or 128 KBps.
Tikona
Tikona DigitalNetworks is one of the leading broadband internet service providers in India. Founded by industry veterans in 2008, the company deploys its services in 25 cities of the country. The Mumbai-based company is known for its high-speed and efficient service.

To find the best possible service in your area, look through the various Tikona broadband plans. The customer-centric company provides secured wireless broadband services to homes and offices. It is presently establishing the largest outdoor Wi-Fi network in the world, with the use of eco-friendly small cell technologies.

Choosing the Best Internet Service Provider

India has a number of internet service providers (ISPs). Choosing a good ISP is very important as this can drastically alter your online experience. Poor quality connections can greatly impact the quality of service and limit your internet usage. 

The following are some of the criteria based on which you will be able to choose the best ISP for you:

Service: Broadband service is of various types, such as Digital Subscriber Line (DSL), satellite, fiber optic, and cable. DSL usually offers a speed of up to 25 Mbps, cable offers download speeds from 3 Mbps to 100 Mbps, satellite offers speeds up to 15 Mbps, while fiber optic offers the highest speed of up to 300 Mbps. Depending on your requirement, opt for a suitable service. The services and performance may vary depending on the ISP and the area.

Speed: Speed is important for convenience and functionality, when using internet. Check the speed your ISP is offering along with the service. See both download as well as upload speeds. You may visit speedtest.net to get a better idea.

Tariff: Check the tariff plans from the ISP. Compare the prices of the service, considering the speed and usage limits. Check the price for modem and installation charges. See what discounts or offers the company is providing. It may also give you some add-ons or special features. Additionally, do not forget to check the price you will be charged, once the usage limit is exceeded.

Service limitations: Check the service limitations carefully. There may be some restrictions on surfing, data caps, or change of speed after a certain period. These limitations will obstruct your connectivity. Ensure that your ISP doesn’t have such restrictions.

Reliability: The ISP should be reliable. Special features and cheap rates will be of no use if the connection is not stable. Check the testimonials and reviews about the ISP. You may also check their rankings on authentic websites.

Approach towards customer: The ISP should excel in customer service. Technicians at the company should be available and ready to help customers, when needed. They should be able to resolve issues at the earliest. Ask other customers for advice and get a feedback on the ISP.

Tikona is one of the leading ISPs, offering the best services at the amazing rates. The company is known for its high-speed broadband service. It provides seamless wireless broadband services and serves 2.75 lakh happy customers, in 25 cities across the country. Tikona broadband reviews will give you a better insight into the high quality service they offer
