By now, we’ve become so dependent on our mobile phones, it’s hard to image a time before they existed. In a world where there is an app for everything, it’s no surprise video conferencing is also attainable on mobile devices. This is due to mobility becoming an increasing trend in different business environments. Many front-line roles require more tools that provide flexibility and instant communication, putting mobile video conferencing on their must-have items.

WebRTC burst onto the scene in 2011 and generated a huge buzz. Everyone talked about how revolutionary it would be, how it was “going to explode,” and “change everything!” But a lot of the stuff I read didn’t explain how that was going to happen, or what WebRTC actually is. Now that it’s being implemented widely, I’ve noticed more discussion about it. Still, this discussion did little to provide clarity for users that weren’t developers. In today’s blog post I’m going to decode and explain WebRTC.
I thought now would be a good time to talk about setting up the perfect IP solution using Grandstream products.

Working Remotely and Staying Connected
Remote workers all over struggle with building strong working relationships with their teams. Although technology has evolved and working remotely is more popular, face-to-face interactions are still crucial in building trust and fostering strong connections. That’s why more and more workers are relying on communication technology to create and help strengthen effective working relations between remote and onsite teams.

It wasn’t until I had to host my own online meeting that I realized it takes several working components to make a meeting successful. Panic set in as the audio cut out 2 minutes before the start time and attendees’ questions were already flooding the chat. There were too many moving parts; I was overwhelmed. The disaster that was quickly unveiling made me realize I wasn’t prepared.

Note: Though this blog post was originally written about the GWN7610, everything in this post applies to all GWN series WiFi Access Points
You may have noticed that much of the discussion around our new GWN7610 WiFi Access Point has been about the way it is installed and managed. One of the biggest innovations is the incredibly quick, easy and intuitive setup and management process we have designed. Where most other AP manufacturers require you to purchase or use a separate piece of equipment or software (known as a “controller”) to setup and manage access points, the GWN7610 includes its own provisioning master built-in to the product’s web-user interface. This controller-less, centralized management is the future of WiFi access point technology and Grandstream is one of the very first manufacturers on the market to design APs this way.
A few weeks ago we announced a major expansion for Grandstream – our entrance into the networking solutions marketplace. Over the coming months we will begin to build out and expand our networking solutions portfolio with a variety of low-end, mid-range and high-end WiFi APs and routers. Our entry into networking market is a major step for Grandstream’s efforts in continuing to offer complete business communication solutions.
When it comes to strategizing for your business, size matters. Creating a comprehensive marketing plan that highlights the value of targeting the right market size is important. This will build an accurate B2B profile, making it easy to design targeted content which contributes to the success of your campaigns. Not to mention the impact it will have on your ROI. That’s one effective way to market.
Do you remember the sound of dial-up while painfully waiting for a computer to connect to the Internet? Or when all devices required a wired connection? In the mid-1990s when the Internet first hit the “mainstream” the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Standards had just barely established the 802.11 standard and dial up was considered an innovative technology. Now, a quarter century later the way we use the Internet is completely different and the original 802.11 standard is a legacy.
