Internet connectivity is essential for any business. However, when collaborating with different teams and vendors to complete a construction project, on time, reliable and fast Internet is essential. Check out some additional reasons as to why Internet is important for new technologies that are implemented at construction sites.
Can you remember when construction sites, site managers, and workers alike were on their own, completely disconnected from the home office or other stakeholders? Any questions or needs meant jumping into a truck and heading back to the office or the nearest materials vendor. Not so now, with modern construction needs.
As the construction industry moves into 2021, modern construction site requirements have reached the pinnacle of technology. Efficiency and productivity, safety, operations, and so much more rely on information and instant communications. The Internet and reliable connectivity for numerous devices have quickly become necessary for every construction site.
As we near a year of remote work, it can be difficult to keep your team's motivation and spirits up while we endure COVID-19. Thankfully, there are ways to help encourage your team, strategies to help them remain focus and bring success for your business.

Necessity may be the mother of invention, but if the COVID-19 crisis has taught us anything, it is that reinvention, or the ability to reinvent technology to transform how a business operates, is vital to survival. The pandemic dramatically accelerated the need and development of new digital capabilities for companies to remain viable and competitive.
What new IT technologies will become even more prevalent in 2021? MHO suggests that businesses keep watching for new and improved IT tech that will help businesses stay relevant in our new post-pandemic world. Below are some major areas where advancements can be expected.
If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it is that adaptability is vital. Our rapidly evolving world is causing a rapidly evolving Internet, too. This means increasing demands for new network infrastructure and redundancy protocols. As a result, it is becoming increasingly difficult for companies to get Internet and networking solutions in place to meet current and future needs.
Major forces within the automotive industry and consumer activity are changing how your local car dealership operates. Perhaps the primary change is the need for a complete digital transformation. Consumers now use the Internet to research car-buying preferences almost 90% of the time before ever visiting a dealership.
Far too many businesses confuse Internet redundancy with Internet diversity. Both are concerned with providing alternate Internet connection and communication services in the event of an outage; yet, both solve these problems in different ways. Make sure you do not use the terms interchangeably or confuse one with the other. Let’s take a look at both and help you decide which is best for your business.
When making an Internet provider decision or even a fixed wireless provider decision, a person needs to consider many factors. Line of sight, redundancy, SLAs, and of course, reliability. A key factor of reliability is ensuring your Internet connection remains stable during as many adverse conditions as possible.
A common question is the effect of weather and rain fade. Because fixed wireless providers utilize radio waves, it might be logical to think that inclement weather such as rain or snow can affect reliability or speed. This is not always the case. It depends on the type of connection (point-to-point or point-to-multipoint: "what’s the difference?”), frequency and also if your provider is supplying something called adaptive modulation.
Fixed wireless and satellite Internet are often times confused to be the same technologies when that could be further from the truth. If you are trying to figure out which business Internet solutions is best for you, below is an illustration of how fixed wireless and satellite internet are vastly different.
To many consumers, fixed wireless and satellite Internet are basically the same. Both do away with the need for a cable or wired connection running into your home or business from an ISP, right? While both do eliminate the outside ground infrastructure of cables, this is where the similarity ends.
