Companies around the world are embracing a new type of workspace when designing their offices, hybrid and mobile friendly. This isn’t a surprise, as recent studies show that employees are spending 50-60%¹ of their time at the office away from their desk. Companies and organizations are looking for unified communication solutions that not only support their workforce communications, but also its mobility. Because of this, it’s important that you stay up-to-date on the current state of IP devices on the market that support this freedom of movement within an organization. Two of the most common solutions out there are DECT and WiFi Voice, lets go over the pros and cons of both.
Office layouts, management styles, working hours, and other factors are constantly changing as we try to understand how to best empower workers to both collaborate efficiently and excel individually. The technology we use in the workplace is no exception to these changes. A modern communications deployment has to not only enhance how we communicate, but also how we collaborate. Let's take a look into three practices that businesses are adopting to enhance their organizational collaboration.
We see it in coffee shops, hotels, supermarkets, airports, and parks. Public WiFi has become a status quo for the ever-connected, fast paced world. A public WiFi network is a powerful tool for any commercial organization to take advantage of. More and more organizations are requiring business-grade access points in their infrastructure deployments. Because of this, it’s important to know how a public WiFi network can benefit a business you’re deploying into, and the tools to look for in access points to create the perfect WLAN solution.
Residential buildings, commercial structures, office complexes, and other large facilities all have something in common: the need to track, manage and control people coming in and out of the premises. Because of this, it is essential that a facility access solution enable authorized users to come and go with ease, keep unauthorized users out, and allow admins to provide situational facility access with a click of a button. With this in mind, we set out to create a door system that can not only screen those who are coming in and out of a building, but can be fully customized specifically for the needs and processes of any facility. If you are building a facility access solution with the GDS series, here are two capabilities that you can use to make the most of your client's solution.
A communication network is the backbone to any business operation. It can make or break the productivity of employees, the efficiency of day-to-day operations, and the overall collaboration of an organization. With this much depending on how we communicate, it is no wonder why so many businesses are choosing VoIP deployments. This being said, VoIP is still a new or just plain confusing concept for customers who are used to using legacy analog. Here are five of the most common problems a VoIP system integration can solve in business communications.
Voice over IP delivers major improvements to traditional communication networks, and as a result legacy analog phone systems are on their way out. Ten years ago, 80% of homes had landlines, but today that number is down to 43%— and businesses are following this trend as well. However much VoIP is becoming the go-to technology for communications, it is important to acknowledge that certain markets cannot fully convert to a total VoIP solution. Not recognizing this could lead to loss in potential sales against competitors. In these situations a hybrid VoIP network can help deliver the flexibility and power of an IP solution while catering to the restraints of your customer. Below are some of the most common situations and their solutions.
In today’s environment of consistent innovation, firmware updates are a way to keep our devices up-to-date and running efficiently. Bug fixes, user interface improvements, security fixes, and feature enhancements consistently roll out to just about any device that is connected to the internet, and Grandstream’s line of communication and networking solutions are no different.
Our networking line had its humble beginnings back in October of 2016 with the release of the GWN7610 WiFi AP. Since then, we have released two additional APs, a Gigabit Router and will soon launch a cloud-based WiFi management platform. Since its inception, the GWN series has been delivering success to our customers throughout the world. Let’s take a look at some recent examples of how our GWN series is helping business compete in a mobility driven world.
