Healthcare, technology, real estate, security, and every small business under the sun: No industry has been exempt from the wide-ranging impact of COVID-19 and the U.S.’ response to it. In the short few weeks since social distancing became widely and seriously enacted across the nation, 27% of American workers have been affected by work from home policies — with up to 70 million Americans arranging to telecommute during this period. What does this all mean for you?
Though work from home (WFH) initiatives are intended to keep Americans safer over the short and long term, and would save U.S. employers $30 billion dollars daily, these measures represent no small set of efforts. Peak usage studies already conducted in Italy and China have assessed video streaming quality, bandwidth strains, and provider equipment, with implications for U.S. households. How will internet service providers provide adequate bandwidth for, say, a household with two parents working simultaneously — and one or more school-age children taking classes online or seeking digital entertainment once their remote courses are done?
Right now, you’re probably hoping to better understand how your employees will adapt to the technological implications of WFH policies in the weeks to come. Fortunately, our longstanding panel is stocked with literally hundreds of thought leaders in a wide variety of directly related fields: WiFi, wireless networks, wireless engineering, digital power systems, digital infrastructure, IoT, and numerous related product development and R&D fields and functions.
