Enterprise Technology Review | Wednesday, August 26, 2020

Today, people, whether they are at home, work, or on the go, expect connectivity to deliver. From 5G to Wi-Fi 6, the world is on the cusp of speed, capacity, and opportunities that were not available earlier. 

FREMONT, CA: In today’s digital era, connectivity has become the foundation for the most significant shifts in society in generations. With the fourth industrial revolution in complete flow, there have been unprecedented opportunities for the development of new business models, enhanced experiences, and fundamental challenges in the manner life and work is viewed all together. 

In healthcare, education, retail, and hospitality, there have been several distinct use-cases that are aiding others in putting their own future connectivity plans in place. 

Enabling Retailers

Today, retail companies are continually adopting innovative technologies for enhancing customer experience, most of which is underpinned by connectivity. There are cloud services solutions available in the market that are capable of managing connectivity across all the outlets from a single device, and also allow those in individual stores to refine and accommodate their individual configuration with the help of a simple mobile application.

The retailers are making use of wireless routers for providing connectivity for clients when in-store and also connecting scanners and IT infrastructure to allow store managers to track and handle inventories effortlessly by using their ERP software.

Assisting clinicians

In a hospital, efficient communication can aid in saving many lives. With the development of technologies, like IoT and the number of gadgets utilized within the hospital on its peak, hospitals will require more bandwidth.

Digital technologies are steadily replacing their traditional analog counterparts in many domains of life. Today, digital DAS is empowering the hospitals to meet the wireless infrastructure requirements with systems that are affordable, convenient to deploy, and easily capable of moving to 5G technology when it is widely accessible.

Connecting campuses

For institutions, the concept of the smart campus has increased exponentially over the past few years. It is evolving beyond connecting individual building and is ensuring high-speed wireless or wired connectivity inside libraries and lecture halls. These days, the connected campus provides an omnipresent hybrid network that covers the whole estate, combining students and staff inside and outside to the resources, applications, and systems for work, life, and learning.

In a nutshell, this is an era of technological disruption, where much of the positive change will continue being underpinned by new-age connectivity.
