Remote working solutions

Remote working is becoming more and more popular every day, and there’s no guessing why!

With today’s technology, your customers don’t really have to be in an office to work. Thanks to laptops, tablets, smartphones, and software, such as Microsoft Teams and Zoom conferencing, employees can continue working remotely.

All those who work remotely know that the biggest challenge is relying on internet connections that aren’t always reliable. When trying to work out of a local coffee shop, there’s nothing worse than trying to hold a Zoom meeting and find it freezing when asked that all-important question! Even when your customers work from home, and payout for a high-speed connection, doesn’t mean they always get what they paid for.

5G changes all this because your customers no longer work at the mercy of the nearest Wi-Fi hotspot. Having ultra-fast wireless capabilities built into their devices means that they can connect from virtually anywhere once the operators complete rolling out their 5G networks.

This change benefits businesses and employees, from increased productivity, higher profitability, and a happier workforce. And now, with the expanding 5G network, remote work is no longer a niche trend but a better way to work remotely.

With the heightened speed and bandwidth of 5G comes the ability to work in some new and impressive ways.

It’s not far-out to think about how VR and AR can allow your customers to work, even when they can’t be there physically. For example, inspecting a facility in another country in real-time, without having to leave their home/office, is a viable scenario when they’re not restrained by the speed or reliability of their connection.

All kinds of jobs that currently require an employee’s physical presence can now be done. 5G allows, not just remote working, but virtual work. That means remote workers can interact with and manipulate objects or data from far away, in real-time, just as if they were there.

For example, perhaps your customer’s role requires them to be onsite, so they have access to large volumes of data, and maybe they’re responsible for research or programming or other data-intensive work that has been harder to do remotely.

With the advent of 5G, those requirements no longer exist as they are able to access and process that same data in real-time, from anywhere.
