One of the biggest concerns that employees have when telecommuting is that they won’t have the connectivity or access that users working in the office have. With the technologies listed below from ScanSource and Intelisys, your staff can have the same experience working from home or remotely.
A wireless network allows devices to stay connected to the network but roam untethered to any wires. Access points amplify Wi-Fi signals so a device—such as a laptop, smartphone, or wireless printer—can be far from a home router, yet still connect to the network. A Wi-Fi wireless network provides a number of benefits for remote employees, including easy set-up, security, convenience, and more.
Wireless data (3G/4G/5G)
For users who are highly mobile or working on-the-go from a personal or company-issued mobile device or smartphone, wireless data services—available in 3G/4G and 5G options—provide fast, secure access to the information they need while on the go.
Virtual Private Network (VPN)
A remote-access VPN allows an individual user to securely connect to a private network—such as a corporate network—from a remote location using a laptop or desktop computer connected to the internet.
There are a variety of options when it comes to internet services, including DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) internet, Cable internet, and Dedicated Internet Access (DIA), each with their advantages and considerations.
