The last few months of 2021 have been transformative, to say the least. After over a year of working from home, thousands of UK employees headed back into the office. In the technology world, 5G is becoming more prolific in the UK, with an increasing number of cities having access to the new generation of wireless technology. Thousands of businesses have opened their doors to the public once again as coronavirus restrictions continue to ease. There is change in the air, but don’t worry, Origin Storage’s networking partner D-Link offers high-quality products that take the stress out of the new normal.
Return to work
Many businesses hope to return to the office in the coming weeks and months, and there is much to consider regarding networking. D-Link provides a range of networking devices to improve your working experience, whether at home or in the office. An increasing number of businesses are purchasing integrated IoT devices, IP cameras, voice assistants such as Google Home or Alexa, smart lights… the list goes on.
It is important for many of us that our work environment is one of connectivity and efficiency, and D-Link can help achieve that goal. For example, to configure networks for maximum efficiency, we recommend the use of network managed switches. Managed switches, along with an upgrade to 10 GbE, would allow extra network control to deal with increased traffic on networks. The ‘new normal’ is defined by virtual meetings, with multiple meetings taking place at the same time. When added to normal traffic, this could cause bottlenecks and limited bandwidth, and no workplace needs that! They also allow you to have more granular control to configure switches, traffic, connected devices, and the security of your network. With D-Link, the power is in your hands.
The proliferation of 5G
Since EE launched the UK’s first 5G service in May 2019 in select cities, this new wireless technology has arrived in several more cities in recent months. It couldn’t have come at a better time, as the pandemic has increased device usage considerably. In 2020, internet usage in the UK more than doubled, primarily due to remote working, video calls, and online gaming.
Unleash the full power of 5G and Wi-Fi 6 wherever you are with D-Link. 5G allows users to watch 4K movies, download massive files with ease, and stream high-quality content without irritating lag or buffering. Whether you are at home or in the office, D-Link 5G routers are built with mobile failover. If your broadband connection cuts out unexpectedly, you remain connected to the internet through the routers mobile connection. Say goodbye to unwelcome internet outages! You’re always connected with D-Link.
Security is vital
After an unwelcome rise in burglaries over the past few years, businesses must reconsider the current security measures currently in place. Security cameras are a vital tool that allow businesses to protect their property and employees. Footage can be used for a multitude of reasons: to make insurance claims and is used to validate reports of workplace incidents, car accidents, theft, and more. Organisations must purchase high-quality, reliable security cameras that can capture incidents clearly. D-Link lenses use high-quality glass for superior images. Vital details such as number plates can be captured in full HD clarity, even at maximum zoom.
