Patria Sable Corpuz College of Calao West, Santiago City, College of Engineering present this CERTIFICATE of APPRECIATION to Bitstop Network Services, Inc.
“in grateful recognition for the exceptional support and expertise shared for the completion of the 240 hours training of the Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering of Patria Sable Corpus College, Santiago City, Philippines. Nothing can ever adequately show the appreciation of the trainees for the efforts and dedication the company has displayed to support them.”
BNS was engaged by Manila Bulletin to design and deploy a live video stream of the townhall presidential debates. The aim is to provide as wide a coverage as possible to the historic event.
The live stream needed to provide 720P HD video signal to an estimated 40,000 simultaneous viewers. BNS deployed rtmp encoder and rtmp relay servers to achieve this goal.

BNS was tapped by Manila Bulletin, the co organizer of the 3rd Presidential debate that was held at the PHINMA University of Pangasinan.
BNS deployed an open source firewall (Pfsense) with web accelerator (transparent cacheing proxy) to further enhance the speed of the dual links. The two links were made up of the 1gbps fiber link deployed by PLDT and the 500mbps Radio link to BNS via Ligowave antenna systems.
Speedtest.net showed speed around 860mbps when measured by MDICT officials.
Philippines Network Operators Group (PHNOG) is a non-profit organization established to promote coordination among Network Operators in Philippines. Focus is given to knowledge development of all members as well as the Philippines IT community as a whole through discussions on technical issues/concerns regarding the Internet and network management.
This coming January, PhNOG will hold a conference themed \\\’All over IP\\\’ (AoIP) -touching the different facets of Internet, entwined to our daily lives. Maybe unknown to many, almost everything is over IP. Local and foreign experts will share their knowledge and experiences that will enable the continuous development of the Philippine Internet.
If you are using Joomla and have the Googlemaps plugin, your webserver may be under attack and being used to attack others via cross site scripting.
The problem with the Joomla! Googlemaps plugin lies in the fact anyone can request the
/plugins/system/plugin_googlemap2_proxy.phpin their browser or script, to execute cURL HTTP requests to remote websites. The
urlparameter is vulnerable for Cross Site Scripting (XSS) attacks, and allows the retrieval of remote website content. When this happens a lot, a website becomes overloaded and unresponsive, making a Denial-of-Service attack succesfully executed. This is not only a problem for the website owner on the remote end, or its hosting company. Your web servers transmit a lot of HTTP traffic to remote ends, increasing server load, usage and network bandwidth (for which you pay). Therefor it’s important to stop this abuse.
To remedy this, you can remove the plugin or restrict access to the file via your .htaccess.

The four new Plesk 12 editions are designed to help infrastructure providers create targeted solutions for web administrators, application developers, web professionals, and hosting service providers.
Each edition simplifies core web management activities to align with the way infrastructure is being used for hosting websites and web applications today.
Plesk 12 also includes a tightly integrated set of mass-management and security tools that can be used to profit from the growing demand for WordPress hosting.
All editions have added built-in server-to-site security, leading to more reliable infrastructure and reduced support costs.
Use the table below to compare what’s included in each Plesk 12 edition.
The Bitstop Network Services now supports the latest version of Internet Protocol(IP) – IPv6.
Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the latest version of the Internet Protocol (IP), the communications protocol that provides an identification and location system for computers on networks and routes traffic across the Internet. IPv6 was developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to deal with the long-anticipated problem of IPv4 address exhaustion. – wikipedia
With IPv6, everything from appliances to automobiles can be interconnected. But an increased number of IT addresses isn’t the only advantage of IPv6 over IPv4. In honor of World IPv6 Day, here are six more good reasons to make sure your hardware, software, and services support IPv6.
- More Efficient Routing
IPv6 reduces the size of routing tables and makes routing more efficient and hierarchical. IPv6 allows ISPs to aggregate the prefixes of their customers’ networks into a single prefix and announce this one prefix to the IPv6 Internet. In addition, in IPv6 networks, fragmentation is handled by the source device, rather than the router, using a protocol for discovery of the path’s maximum transmission unit (MTU).
- More Efficient Packet Processing
IPv6’s simplified packet header makes packet processing more efficient. Compared with IPv4, IPv6 contains no IP-level checksum, so the checksum does not need to be recalculated at every router hop. Getting rid of the IP-level checksum was possible because most link-layer technologies already contain checksum and error-control capabilities. In addition, most transport layers, which handle end-to-end connectivity, have a checksum that enables error detection.
- Directed Data Flows
IPv6 supports multicast rather than broadcast. Multicast allows bandwidth-intensive packet flows (like multimedia streams) to be sent to multiple destinations simultaneously, saving network bandwidth. Disinterested hosts no longer must process broadcast packets. In addition, the IPv6 header has a new field, named Flow Label, that can identify packets belonging to the same flow.
- Simplified Network Configuration
Address auto-configuration (address assignment) is built in to IPv6. A router will send the prefix of the local link in its router advertisements. A host can generate its own IP address by appending its link-layer (MAC) address, converted into Extended Universal Identifier (EUI) 64-bit format, to the 64 bits of the local link prefix.
- Support For New Services
By eliminating Network Address Translation (NAT), true end-to-end connectivity at the IP layer is restored, enabling new and valuable services. Peer-to-peer networks are easier to create and maintain, and services such as VoIP and Quality of Service (QoS) become more robust.
IPSec, which provides confidentiality, authentication and data integrity, is baked into in IPv6. Because of their potential to carry malware, IPv4 ICMP packets are often blocked by corporate firewalls, but ICMPv6, the implementation of the Internet Control Message Protocol for IPv6, may be permitted because IPSec can be applied to the ICMPv6 packets.
