If information is the lifeblood of any organization, then telecommunication networks are the capillaries, veins, and arteries that allow it to flow freely from one vital organ to another. The better the channels for sharing information, the more effective your entire organization will be.
As businesses prepare to move into the New Year, many will be taking stock of what big projects and upgrades will be needed in 2019. If you are concerned that your telecommunications infrastructure and tools are not what they could be, here are four upgrades you should consider in the coming months:
- Fibre Optic Network Cabling
Network cabling is one of those things that most people don’t think about unless it isn’t working. But no modern office building could function without the extensive hidden networks of cable that connect the individual computer or phone to the outside world.
Upgrading to fibre optic cable with network cabling services from ExcelLinx Communications is an excellent way to start off the New Year with faster, more reliable Internet.
- Improved Teleconferencing Capacity
Perhaps no single tool is as valuable for a growing business as a state-of-the-art teleconferencing room. While the traditional office has been extremely resilient in the face of technological change, it is undeniable that the number of people working remotely or telecommuting has risen drastically over the past decade.
For this reason, a teleconference room designed to provide the best possible experience while also hiding wires and keeping the conference space clear of electronic clutter is a must for any business in 2019.
- Closed-Circuit Cameras
Security is an issue that businesses and organizations of all sizes are aware of on some level or another. But that isn’t the only reason why closed-circuit surveillance cameras are an important feature to have in an office — surveillance cameras also play a vital role in creating a record of day-to-day life in the office that can be useful should allegations of misconduct be brought.
Because surveillance cameras serve as a reminder that the workplace is a public space, they encourage employees and management alike to behave professionally while in the office. And should a claim of misconduct be made, the cameras can be an important way of clarifying what actually took place.
- Sound Masking
While sound masking may not seem like it has much to do with telecommunications, the two are, in fact, intimately related. On one hand, telecommunications can only work if background noise is kept to a minimum; on the other, telecommunications is also often responsible for the growing problem of noise pollution in the office.
Whether you are having issues with teleconferencing because of the break room next door or your staff members are struggling with background noise when taking calls, sound masking can be an excellent way to improve the workplace environment and make communications run more smoothly.
In the competitive world of 21st century business, those who don’t adopt the latest tech solutions are often the first to fall behind. Don’t risk losing out to the competition because your office lacks the necessary telecommunications tools to keep up.
Start the New Year by installing new fibre optic cabling, upgrading the teleconferencing capacities, bringing in surveillance cameras, and reducing noise pollution in your office. You and your entire team will reap the benefits for years to come.
