A hybrid work environment provides the flexibility and security to get your business back to business-as-usual

Today, many companies are facing a dilemma about how to get their employees back to the office, and how to get their businesses back to business-as-usual, as quickly as possible. Some things they are thinking about include; how to begin re-opening their offices and manage the business safely.

Government organizations across the APAC region are requiring businesses to implement health guidelines to provide safe work environments for employees. However, many businesses recognize that safety is not only about employees personal health, but also, the health of the company’s information and data must be taken into consideration. This means that in addition to creating safe physical environments, policies that enable hybrid ecosystems must be implemented. A hybrid ecosystem would enable employees to securely switch between the traditional office and the home office as well access secure data stored in company servers.

Wi-Fi can be optimized to provide secure connections for the rapidly increasing number of IoT devices, as well it can be used to trace devices and analyze user behaviour to optimize operational cost and provide a seamless transition to new ways of working.

Following are a few considerations for Wi-Fi optimization:

• Enabling asset tracking and location-based services can help track social distancing and support contact tracing

• Wi-Fi presents an optimal solution because of extensive existing coverage and the ubiquity of Wi-Fi devices

• A simple smartphone app can enable employees to see other tracked employees as well as visitors' locations. The data can be used to monitor health and safety recommendations implemented in the office, as well as collect data related to tracking and monitoring visitors. The data can also be analyzed to provide valuable insights into process improvements.

• A Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) solution with an intuitive web and smartphone app can enable employees to locate individuals and assets on a floor plan map, with a simple auto-text search

With optimized capabilities embedded with Wi-Fi 6, location-based services, asset tracking, and data solutions, businesses can speed up the adoption of hybrid work environments, reduce operational costs and help get business back on track.
