As societies adapt to the new normality of the pandemic, companies seek to revive their operations under new biosecurity measures, so technology plays a key role due to the need to maintain social distancing and minimize physical contact.
This is where wireless networks become extremely important, allowing the collaboration and interaction of important human contingents without risking contagion. Prior to the pandemic, there was already a significant global increase in network investment. According to our partner Cisco’s Global Network Trends Report 2020, one in 3 companies was investing in maximizing the value of their IT infrastructure as their top network priority.
This makes more sense today, as it is the cornerstone when it comes to starting or deepening the digitization of your company, which is vital to increase the resilience of companies in the long term. Below we list three advantages that will increase the value of your business by strengthening your networked infrastructure.
1. Professionalize remote work
It is no secret to anyone that remote work and videoconferences at home or in temporary offices became a must after the emergence of the pandemic to allow continuity of operations. However, as explained in previous articles, there are many voices and analyses that suggest that this will become the rule and not the exception, leaving security, network performance and protocols dependent on home WiFi infrastructures.
Having enterprise-class wireless access points such as the remote worker connectivity node facilitates business dynamics because access policies and configurations can be centralized remotely, enabling monitoring of network usage and ensuring connectivity for business-critical applications.
2. Interactions in the midst of social distancing
IT leaders and network infrastructures play a leading role in the staff adopting biosecurity measures for work, including social distancing. The wireless network thus becomes a key feature to, for example, learn the location of collaborators and employees through their connected devices and measure the number of people gathered in a work area.
There are intelligence platforms on wireless networks that offer this type of information through real-time monitoring and impact analysis reports, integrating customizable notification systems and information portals according to the user\'s profile. All this gives any organization the tools to maintain a safe and controlled operation.
3. Connections that innovate
Mobile interactions are one of the tools that can generate the most benefit to an organization because they’re able to obtain information and data that can be processed to establish trends and behaviors, which in turn allows to improve interactions at the user level. This is one of the best and most effective ways to generate innovative and rewarding experiences, more personalized and in real time for companies in sectors such as retail, financial services, education, health services and hospitality.
Leveraging next-generation technologies to produce new digital experiences that produce better interaction and leverage key points in customer, business partner, and partner relationship processes is one of the best ways to take advantage of your business, increasing productivity levels and lowering unnecessary process costs.
