For all organizations, understanding how wireless technology impacts their digital transformation strategies is critical. Wireless communications are also disrupting IoT, RPA, and Machine Learning technologies as AI continues to impact business operations.

Deloitte It was reported that 70% of respondents to the ‘Tech Trends’ report indicate that turbulent growth is critical to the success of their companies. However, only 13% were confident in their company’s ability to meet this strategic priority.

To understand how wireless has become a business necessity, Silicon UK spoke with Adam Taub, founder of Code technology, an independent communications and security resource. Toop is a communications expert with over three decades of experience providing mobile and security services to the financial, banking and high net worth sectors.

The shift to remote work has changed the way the workforce is organized. Do companies have a clear IT strategy – including wireless support – as they develop their business operations and manage their people?

When the pandemic hit, companies had no choice but to quickly transition to remote work and rely on home broadband connections for employees. However, the high contention ratios – more users trying to use the available bandwidth at any one time – quickly revealed just how far the performance in real life could be from what was initially announced. As a result, many technical organizations adopted wireless as a backup, as disagreement was no longer an issue, and the wireless network offered much higher levels of reliability than fixed.

“Now, businesses are increasingly embracing wireless as their primary means of connecting workers from home. This is because, with smart wireless connectivity, you can support and quickly address issues remotely, with real-time control over SIM cards — issues that can take days and weeks with line alternatives. Firmware Since there is no need to send engineers to the site, new wireless installations can also be deployed within a day.

“Smart wireless delivers improved reliability, speed, flexibility, and lower costs without relying on legacy interchanges, street cabinets, ducts, or cables that are prone to failure or damage.

“The advent of eSIMs has also accelerated this transition to wireless. While standard SIMs are sensitive, network-bound and cannot be reconfigured, eSIMs are more secure, embedded in devices, networkless and highly configurable over the air. While this allows Routine updates can be easily applied, the “unrestricted” aspect of eSIMs also means that the carrier can be changed instantly if needed.

“For users where high availability is critical, unrouted eSIMs have proven to be very popular. Unlike the ‘routered’ alternative, in this case the eSIM is not configured by default for a particular network even if the signal is not the best – a home network Or maybe a network at the lowest cost.Alternatively, it allows the device to select the strongest signal and stay connected to it without bias.

In both ‘directed’ and ‘undirected’ examples, definitions can include unlimited, unrestricted data when used as the primary connection, or self-optimization based on data usage (with a useful minimal line lease) when used as a backup. Data collection packets (shared across different devices) also reduce costs.SIMs can be configured with specific APNs and static IP addresses, for example.

“Contractually, wireless is also the clear winner with 30-day rolling wireless agreements now possible, while consumer broadband contracts are typically 18-24 months for fixed-line services.”

Security is a topic not far from the discussion of digital channels. But, do companies clearly understand the security risks via the wireless channels they use and do they have an integrated plan to secure these communications?

Fixed-line connectivity has long been the star of the cybersecurity show, leaving wireless behind with basic options that include DNS filtering.

“While companies have many advanced tools to secure devices and network endpoints, mobile content filtering services are now available at the network level. They are leveraging intelligent AI to go a step beyond industry listings of known malicious websites through continuous scanning and rating of billions URLs Malicious URLs are automatically blocked, locking devices, networks and data Users can also create policies to control access by user, groups or time of day and configure lists of URLs, keywords, and file extensions to allow or block All controls and data are available in real time.

“The real test is that sectors such as education, healthcare and government, where strict regulations are enforced, are increasingly able to adopt wireless due to the tools available to secure these deployments.”

For businesses, what does the future of wireless look like in your opinion?

From supporting only voice services at the beginning, modern wireless networks have evolved to deliver amazing data speeds, reliability and cost-effectiveness, bypassing the ‘copper and cobwebs’ infrastructure of legacy exchanges.

“With same-day or next-day deployment, real-time access to management and support tools, and remotely configurable and filterable eSIMs, the wireless case is already undeniably robust. The obvious advantage of 30-day contract renewals over 18 or 24 months simply bolsters the argument. Control rests firmly in the hands of the customers, rather than the providers since the seller will always work harder to retain a untangled customer who has the option to leave easily if they are not completely satisfied.”
