Recent business surveys show that 72% of employees are looking for a hybrid work-from-home model to continue for the next few years. Currently, 20-30% of employers report that they intended to keep remote options as part of their standard business model going forward.
The change to a more decentralized workforce means that you will be spending more time on video conferencing platforms and using software collaboration tools. These business applications may appear lightweight and straightforward, but their bandwidth demand is substantial behind the scenes.
The home network has a lot of traffic on it, from streaming services delivering content to televisions, audiophile-quality multiroom audio, and the plethora of smartphones and IoT devices. When you are engaged in a business call, the last thing you want is the dreaded buffering message to appear or to experience a signal loss.
In order to ensure consistent communication, you need enterprise-class management hardware. A dedicated network switch provides a means to manage data and prioritize specific data types, such as video conferencing packets.
Utilizing the virtual LAN capabilities of a switch, we partition your home office from the rest of the network. While you can connect to devices and equipment in your office, no one can gain access from the rest of the home.
The most secure and consistent connection comes with a hardwired link. A physical cable furnishes a direct path between devices and the network where little can get between you and the servers. While it is safe and robust, a wired solution is not always practical as it keeps you fixed to a location.
As Wi-Fi travels over the air to communicate, it is more susceptible to being intercepted.
An unsecured wireless network can also allow others to connect, stealing your bandwidth -slowing you down. A correctly set up security protocol keeps you safe and free to move about. Are you tired of the desk? Move to the couch or out to the deck for a fresh perspective.
Wireless sends data over radio frequencies, and the spectrum set aside for its use is very limited. If you have ever tried to tune in to a radio station when traveling between cities, you understand the confusion the high level of radio traffic can cause. Our team can analyze the spectrum around your home to find the proper channels and coverage to suit your needs.
