Warehousing and logistics are among the first industries to fully embrace the digital transformation. Digital tracking and inventory management is a key component of the modern transfer of goods between countries and clients. This is fortunate, in that the logistics and warehousing industry is fully positioned to leverage technology and the Internet to overcome significant problems caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
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.
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.
The structure of your company IT department has likely gone through drastic changes in 2020. More employees than ever are working remotely, causing a dramatic shift in your IT considerations. How we live and the new trend that combines home life with office life will continue to change how we plan the structure and infrastructure of our business.
The world has rapidly changed, as we all know. How we obtain care from our physicians and healthcare workers is no exception. Telemedicine is making a major impact, allowing medical practices to care for patients from a safe distance. Although this major shift in healthcare practices has been brought to the forefront because of COVID-19, its effectiveness will likely cement it as a permanent fixture of modern healthcare.
More often than not, many use the terms Internet diversity and redundancy interchangeably. However, the two are quite different. Check out the infographic below to understand the differences and how it can be helpful for your business' network.
It has already been established that a properly executed fixed wireless Internet network consistently provides faster and more secure data speeds, and is much easier and less expensive to install, upgrade, and operate. Moreover, their relative independence from fiber and cable networks make their design, planning, and implementation far faster and more efficient than other options.
One of the major questions that arise when companies are considering a fixed wireless Internet connection concerns line of sight (LOS) considerations. This is likely the major obstacle that fixed wireless providers deal with when developing a network for clients. MHO discusses LOS considerations and explains how line of sight issues are handled with potential clients.
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.
Many people throughout the global workforce are adjusting to working from home, especially since it seems to be the new normal for the foreseeable future. As we all adapt and utilize tools, manage usage with others, and do our best to maintain security, many have encountered some issues.
These can include:
- Home Internet services are not typically built for the type of workload that may be needed.
- They also don’t have the security protocols that office work environments enjoy.
- Video streaming and conferencing is way up, and these are big taxes on bandwidth.
- Additionally, there may be many people doin
g these types of streams at the same time in one household now (both spouses working from home, plus kids at home doing educational or recreational activities online).
